What to Wear for your Engagement Shoot
Deciding on what to wear doesn’t have to be stressful. Wear something awesome that makes you feel great in. Anna So typically recommends on selecting your attired based on your location. However, you want to wear clothing that will showcase your personalities. It’s all about planning and styling! The more time you invest in selecting your wardrobe the happier you will be. Leaving the details to the last minute creates stress and that goes for the wedding day too!
As a general rule, wear solid colors, as stripes and patterns draw attention away from your face. Avoid wearing turtle necks and large loose clothing, as these often make the neck seem nonexistent, and the body looks wider than it is. Shorts and capris have a tendency to make legs appear shorter than they are.
Solid monochromatic colors are easiest to coordinate, but primary or complementary colors also look great. Dark pants or jeans with dark shoes give texture and visually anchor a portrait. When choosing a color scheme, choose not only what looks best on you but what color will look best on your wall portraits and compliment your home decor.
Avoid running shoes, white socks, and heavy footwear. Consider fashionable boots, comfortable heels/wedges, sandals or bare feet for casual.
Props are always great to showcase your personality in your engagement photos.
In general, bring two to three outfits to the shoot, we can help you choose the best option or you can always have an outfit change to show off a second look!
Looking good on camera doesn’t require professional makeup artist. Wear natural make-up or however you like to feel the best!
Blush Tip: If you are having a hair and makeup trial you may want to schedule your trial the same day as your shoot so you can see how your hair and makeup photograph!
