Joshua and I just did our engagement photos – it was so much fun to be on the other side of the camera for once! Here are some PRO TIPS that I give my own clients (and of course which we followed ourselves) to make the experience SO MUCH FUN!
1 / Wear outfits that you’re confident in … it’ll help you be yourself!
2 / Colors to consider … burgundy, navy, yellow, light brown – a little color gives a rich look to your photos so avoid plain black + white or bold neons.
3 / Layer up if it’s chilly, which will help you naturally accessorize your look – add a scarf, hat, jacket, vest … boots are always a cute option!
4 / Add a bit of jewelry – not too much, but at least a few details so close-up shots are interesting.
5 / Imperfection IS perfection – you don’t need every photo to be posey-posey. Just be with each other and relax. Be silly even!
6 / Arrive dressed and ready to go so that you make the most of your photographer’s time.
By keeping these tips in mind, it’ll ensure both that you’ll feel prepared at your engagement session and that you’ll love your final engagement photos.
