Below are 3 Tips to help you decide what to wear for your Engagement Portrait Session.
1. Choosing your Outfits for your session Location
Your choice of location along with your outfits can really make your session. Your outfit choice could compliment or contrast with your location.
You could go all out – dressed to the nines in evening attire complete with professional hair and makeup. This could make for an elegant session in the Sydney CBD incorporating facades of historic buildings like Customs House or the Art Gallery of NSW; alternatively for a contrasting option you might choose a grungier scene with a graffiti lined alleyway and old textures.
For a casual beach or park session, maybe a sun dress or jeans with your favourite chuck taylors.
2. What are your Plans for your Images
Thinking about what you intend to do with your images may help you choose colours or themes for your Engagement Session.
You might be after wall art for your living room – consider the decor and style of your home when planning for your session.
Perhaps you’re intending to use the images for your save the date cards or wedding invitations, wedding guest book or framed prints or canvases at your wedding reception, in which case consider the theme and location of your wedding.
3. Be Yourself
Be comfortable – consider wearing your favourite outfit – that dress or jeans and top you feel great in. It’s your favourite for a reason! If you have a gorgeous outfit which you’d love to wear but is a little impractical or uncomfortable (you know the dress I mean, looks great but you need to stand just the right way and keep everything held in for the best effect) bring along a second more comfortable outfit.
Accessories are also awesome – knits look awesome in photographs, as do scarves, cute handbags, and layers! With layers (think cardi, scarves, jacket) you also have the option of incorporating some different looks into your session.
