Clothing Options

As you begin planning your engagement session outfits consider these questions.  Are there colors that look best on you and your fiancée?

Are you sporty, trendy, dressy, casual?

Find one piece of clothing that includes the colors you would like to use. Then plan his outfit around that piece. Choose 2 or 3 colors to use in your outfits. It’s a little easier when choosing a basic neutral color like denim, tan or black, and then you just add your color. Denim, teal and blue is another great combination. You can match, but mix it up!

Why not glam it up! We love formal engagement pictures, you in a beautiful dress and your fiancé in a suit or jeans and a sport coat.

It’s so classy!

Keep in mind that simple is best.  Should you choose a more casual session, please avoid clothing with writing or crazy busy bold patterns. Solids and neutrals don’t distract from beautiful faces. Jeans and khakis always look good. The key is to create a portrait that is timeless. Accessories (hair, jewelry, shoes) are JUST as important as the clothes. If you need recommendations we often work with wonderful hair and make-up vendors and are happy to recommend them.
