5 Engagement Tips

5 Engagement Photo Tips


1. Don’t hesitate to check out photo shoot locations beforehand. I know we spoke about this, but if something else has popped up or you have a cool idea, please don’t hesitate to let me know. I encourage you to find a spot that reflects your love and a place you’ll both feel comfortable. And please note that there is no such thing as an ‘ugly’ location....there is beauty everywhere....we just have to find it! I’ve shot pretty much in every location imaginable (dumpsters, septic tanks, graffiti walls, etc), so please know that the location doesn’t necessarily have to be pretty at every corner :)


2. Wear outfits that you feel AWESOME wearing. If you feel like a hottie, you’ll look like a hottie! Don’t force yourself into something uncomfortable that you would never normally wear (this goes for girls AND guys).


3.Don’t be afraid of color. Fun, colorful outfits make your pictures pop! These pictures will reflect the two of you during one of the best times of your life, so have fun with your style and show us who you are.


4. I recommend sticking to no more than two outfits in order to maximize our time together. If you would like to wear an additional outfit, realize that this has an impact on the amount of time that we are able to spend shooting. Make sure it is something that can be easily changed into at our chosen location. For example, changing shirts is easy and can be done anywhere, but if you want to change into a dress, things get a little more complicated! (Think back seat of a car…)


5. Pay attention to your eyes! Eyeliner and mascara are a must! Take extra care on your mascara and really separate your lashes. Your eyes will be the most important factor in many of your images, so spend extra time making them look beautiful!
