COMFORT IS KEY While shopping for a brand new out t is something fun and exciting my clients love to do for their engagement sessions I always emphasize how important it is for their out ts to be comfortable If you do decide to get everything brand new and really who can blame you make sure you wear it at least once before your shoot to make sure it ts and feels great This is especially important for things like shoes which can cause all kinds of problems if they aren t broken in properly TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE Want to try out a couple looks Great I encourage my clients to bring two out ts to their engagement session Before we begin I ll ask you to show me both out ts so I can help plan which one would go best with which backdrops We ll pause halfway through the session to give you time to change P R E P A R E T H E D AY B E F O R E Take some time the day before your shoot to get everything together cleaned ironed and steamed Make sure your accessories are in one place any wrinkles in your clothing are history and any stains spots are busted well before the shoot I ll remind you that your session is coming up a few days beforehand so you ll have plenty of time and no excuses to be well prepared Being relaxed before your session is key to beautiful natural images

DON T SKIP ON THE HAIR AND MAKEUP Ladies this is a big one I always tell my clients to think very seriously about having hair and makeup professionally styled for their engagement photos This is a once in a lifetime moment for you Hiring a professional will ensure you look your absolute best on camera W E A R C O M P L E M E N TA R Y O U T F I T S I recommend that my couples wear out ts which complement each other rather than match What does that mean Well try not to wear the exact same colors you aren t twins but do pick colors that go well together Match each other s out t in terms of formality rather than literal colors and patterns If one person is wearing a bright bold pattern it might be a good idea for the other to wear something a little more toned down and neutral PAT T E R N S A R E E V E R Y T H I N G Big bold patterns like orals checkers or polka dots are a no fail way to ensure your clothing looks amazing on camera For patterns the bigger the better so keep that in mind when choosing your out t ACCESSORIZE Accessorizing is fun looks amazing on camera and highly encouraged Ladies go for it Hats belts scarves necklaces hair scarves earrings rings bring it on For the guys try to avoid technology accessories I can t tell you how many times a smart watch has ruined a beautiful image but don t be afraid to try some fun socks or o fun shoes

LO N G F LOW Y R O M A N C E Ladies if you re looking for a dreamy romantic look in your images I highly suggest choosing an out t that s long and owy Look for long romantic dresses or owy skirts in gauzy fabric that catch the breeze and the light High heels and delicate sparkly jewelry add a nishing touch J U S T B E YO U Everyone has their own unique style and it s OK to choose an out t that expresses who you are You don t have to try to look a certain way or match what your friends did for their engagement sessions or what you ve seen on Pinterest Just be yourself RELAX Sounds simple doesn t it Yet so many of my clients get worried about whether they need to know how to pose nd the right backdrop turn into the light a certain way Well I ve said it many times and I ll say it again RELAX Those things are all my job All you have to do is show up looking fabulous and I ll take care of the rest Promise
