BUT WHAT WILL I WEAR? An engagement session quandary answered
Does your upcoming engagement session have you clueless? Do you think we would just leave you hanging?
We’re here to help you pick your most capable outfits.
First, let’s address some common “fashion victim” crimes.
Fashion Crime #1: Not Dressing For The Occasion
Would you wear a sundress in the snow? A parka at the beach? No! So why would you dress in a way that doesn’t make sense for your engagement session? If you’re getting married in the spring and need some quick engagement photos in the winter, do it right. Summer engagement photos? Obvs, wear a swimming suit. Okay kidding, but we wouldn’t judge!
P.S. This advice goes for weddings too!
Fashion Crime #2 : Mismatched Tones + Patterns
Do you ever see a person walking down the street and you’re just like “DANG they are so on point with their outfit today!!”? Chances are, that person had a lovely balanced mix of patterns and tones! Some of you are nodding your head in understanding, some of you are confused. Here’s what I mean by the perfect balance:
Fashion Crime #3: Don’t Be Someone You Aren’t
First things first, fashion fads come and go. Remember in 2008 when we all thought it was super cool to wax our eyebrows to basically nothing? Yeah, that didn’t turn out so well for us. (shameless plug, still hate your brows? Check out The Tinted Room) Don’t do something for your session just because it’s popular now, unless you’re going for that “Holy shit Mom, you really dressed like this?!” moment when your kid finds your engagement photos a couple decades from now.
On this same line, don’t be someone you aren’t! You don’t want to see a stranger in your engagement photos. Pick outfits and help us guide you with locations that really showcase who you and your boo are as a couple.
FINAL TIPS & TRICKS TO LOOKING LIKE YOUR BEST DAMN SELF
Don’t wear uncomfortable shit. You will look uncomfortable.
Do your wedding trial the day of your engagement session so your makeup looks BOMB AF (Especially if you hired someone from our Dream Team Vendors List)
Don’t be afraid to dress up!
Ask us what we think. We will be honest!
Nervous? Let’s start your session with a drink at your favorite bar or coffee shop. It’s the perfect way for us to get candid photos of you, and to give you time to loosen up for the camera.
What is your relationship actually like? Where do you hang out? Whether it’s the latest bar, the movies or your couch, we want to capture that! In ten years you may not be in the same house, or even the same city- so let’s make your engagement session a time capsule of the beginning of your life together.
