Engagement Wardrobe Ideas

PottingerPhotoCincinnatiEngagementWashingtonPark-1663I love photographing Engagement Sessions. They are a great chance to warm up to the camera and to try out some fun poses. It’s kind of like a date except I get to follow you around. I usually start with a classic pose and then after a few snaps you get to break from it. He might want to kiss you on the cheek or give you a big bear hug. The session lasts about an hour and it is a lot of fun. During the wedding day I only get about thirty minutes for portraits of you two so it is important that we can move quickly during that time and I will already have a good idea what you two are comfortable with. Plus on the wedding day we might put thirty minutes on the timeline but in reality it usually ends up only being twenty minutes. Below is a list of wardrobe tips I hope you will find helpful!

Engagement Wardrobe Tips:
Don’t wear all black and don’t wear all white around your faces
Avoid wide stripes or small polka dots
Pick something simple and classic
Wear something you know you look good in (not something new and trendy)
Try to match your styles- either both wear dressy or both wear jeans and a collared shirt
Coordinate your colors
Don’t wear a mini-skirt – there will be a lot of sitting and standing so wear something you can move in
Don’t go heavy on the make up – natural makeup looks best outdoors
Wear shoes you can run around it – we like to walk around a lot to find the best spots (feel free to bring heels to change into when we get to a good spot)
And the most important things: always bring a smile and be ready to have fun!
