Engagement session outfit ideas!

Finding the perfect outfit for your engagement session can seem tedious and daunting. Don't you fret! Here are some helpful tips to ease the process.

Stay away from the following...
- Wearing solid white on top
 This doesn't mean that you can't implement ivory or cream. In fact, ivory and cream photograph white.
- Wearing black and red together. Most of the times my backdrop is organic and tends to have shades of green. :) Red and black are jarring when placed in that setting. 

Keep in mind when shopping...
- Location is key! Coordinate the style and colors of your clothing to compliment the backdrop.  
- Show me some color! Don't worry about matching your fella. In fact, it doesn't match... it goes... 
- Layer it up! Scarves, cardigans, vests, hats, jackets... 
- Textures and patterns. This adds interest and dimension to your clothing. Solid shirts are sad. :(
- One dressy and one messy - I love the juxtaposition of having two looks for your engagement session. One dressy outfit includes a tie for the guy and a skirt for the lady. (I wish lady rhymed with skirt) The messy outfit is usually more casual. This doesn't necessarily mean that jeans need to be worn. 

If all else fails, buy everything, bring it to the shoot, then I'll help you decide. 


Most importantly! 
Dress to flatter your body type. Be sure you're comfortable. Don't stray away from your personality. 



ONE MORE THING!
I can't stress the importance of using a hair and makeup artist before every session. It makes all the difference in the world! 
Hire a hair and makeup artist to have you looking your finest. Trust. It's worth it. 
Also... buy some Crest White strips. :)
