Frequently I get asked “what should we wear for our engagement session?” I’ve answered my most commonly asked question below.
If one person is wearing a pattern the other should stick to solid colours. Try to incorporate neutrals, so it’s not a bunch of competing colours.
If one person is wearing a colour, the other person should try to incorporate a neutral or soft muted sister shade.
Tone down bright colours, they tend to steal the show. They also can cast colour up onto your face.
Dark colours are amazing, they are super flattering and keep the focus on your faces.
DO NOT wear the exact same colour as your partner. The lack of contrast makes it looks like you and your partner are one person, not two individuals.
Try to incorporate a variety of textures, this can be done with a scarf, a leather jacket, a fuzzy sweater, denim, lace or simply wearing a different type of fabric than your partner. Don’t be scared of sheer lace, it photographs beautifully!!
I recommend that ball caps are NOT worn. The large brim on these type of hats take away from my ability to create photographs of an intimate nature. That being said, I do enjoy a good “Indiana Jones” hat that can be taken on and off without wrecking hair.
Accessories that work:
- Indiana Jones hats (the smaller brim just works!)
- Subtle Jewellery – I love a good set of assorted rings.
- Cozy Blankets/Serape blankets
- Don’t be afraid to showcase your tattoos
Things to avoid:
- Baseball caps
DON’T FORGET TO WEAR COMFORTABLE CLOTHES, SO YOU CAN HAVE FUN!!
