What to wear for your Engagement Session? . Ft. Wayne IN Engagement Photographer, Sarasota FL Engagement Photographer, Warsaw IN Engagement Photographer

Engagement sessions are possibly my favorite type of portrait session to do!  I LOVE love!  So to have two fiancé’s in front of the camera is super sweet to me!

But before you go into your engagement session its important to put some thought and effort into your look to make sure your photos are the best they can possibly be!  Here are a few tips to consider…

Coordinate but don’t match.

A good rule of thumb is one or two pops of color between both of your outfits, and the rest can be neutrals.

(Neutrals: denim, black, grey, brown, khaki, white, cream, navy. Get it?)

Dress for your portrait LOCATION.

Springy blooms?  Go with lighter neutrals or soft pastels.what to wear engagement session fort wayne photographer_0102Summertime picnic in the park?  Stick with light weight clothing to stay cool.what to wear engagement session fort wayne photographer_0110In home session?

Take this opportunity to dress up a little bit!

Go shopping for a new dress, some new heels, get your guy his first suit!  Pay the extra money to have your hair and makeup done professionally.  It can give you a really good idea of how you’ll look on your wedding day.  You’ve only got one shot for that, so it’s a great chance to practice during your engagement session!  Pay attention to your nails as well, as I’ll be focusing on your left hand for a few shot.what to wear engagement session fort wayne photographer_0108

Get your ring cleaned before your session.

I always take a few shots of your bling during our session.  Close ups, on your hand and on it’s own.  So the more sparkly and smudge-free, the better!what to wear engagement session fort wayne photographer_0112

Bring multiple wardrobe options to your session.

It’s a great idea to bring a casual option and a formal option to your session.  This way your final gallery will have even more variety.
