Tips for a Great Engagement Session
1. But we are so uncomfortable in front of the camera! You are not alone! Most people are not used to having their picture taken. If at all possible, hang out with your photographer before the shoot. Whether it’s going out to lunch or a Skype session, feeling comfortable with your photographer will make it a lot easier. If you still feel uneasy, let your photographer know. They will more than likely have a few games and exercises that will have you making Blue Steel faces in no time.
2. What in the world should we wear?? The most important thing to remember is that your engagement session is about you! Wear clothes that you feel comfortable and beautiful in. Color is great! Go for coordinating colors without being too matchie. Avoid logos or anything else that will be distracting in the photos.
3. Keep in mind that your photographer will more than likely be taking pictures of your hands so make sure your hands and nails are clean and well-kept. 4. Your photographer will most likely recommend shooting early in the morning or late in the day. Go with that! The light is much more flattering and you will appreciate it in the long run.5. Most importantly, enjoy yourself! See your engagement session as a date. How often do you get to dress up and spend two hours staring into each others eyes, kissing, hugging, and just being really dang cute? Your engagement is an incredible time in your journey together, so treasure it.
