• What to wear for an Engagement Session…

    For me, the engagement session is a chance to get to know you as a couple before the wedding.

    For the bride and groom, its a chance to have photos taken before the big day. It’s a relaxed atmosphere for me to capture moments of you both being natural and having fun.

    The main question for the session is, what do we wear?

    • Usually, we do the shoot on location, for the brides I always recommend wearing flat shoes for walking and if you prefer heels, bring them with you. A lot of times we are walking through the woods, parks or beaches. This can be a lot on your feet.
    • Keep it simple. If you want something a little more formal make sure you both are dressed the same. You can always do a little bit of both, but remember that if we are in a public place we have to be very creative about changing rooms.
    • Colors: It’s important to keep your personalities in the photos. Using the same color scheme is always best. If the bride is wearing light blue, the groom can wear dark blue. The layered look is great too. You have to keep in mind not to wear anything too busy. Plaids next to stripes, do not work very well.
    • Keep with your season. Winter colors are more, blues, grays, and browns. Fall colors are more browns, and reds. Summer and spring are pastels and whites. Just to give you and idea.
    • Keep with your location. If you are having the session at a beach, keep it simple, casual and soft. If you have the session in a lobby of an elegant hotel or building, you may want it to be more formal.
    • The best advice I can give is just to be yourself.
    • If you have questions, please ask!
    • If you have any props or would like suggestions for a save the date photo, we can always discuss some more ideas.

    Most of all, HAVE FUN!!!
