This was one of our favorite Engaged photo sessions, But ill be writing this for all lifestyle sessions featuring how real people can look and feel amazing. Confidence is Key. But what brings the confidence out is purely from the help of the photographer. this means from the moment you work with your photographer from the start. An engagement session is a great way to start getting to know him/her before the wedding.
But back to Confidence, Hair, makeup complements help. but the true key is always a new outfit. nothing makes us feel better than a new piece in our wardrobe. but it’s not as simple as going into a store and buying new pair of jeans or dress.
Primarily you need to ask for assistance with the outfits. Some materials and colors or even a flow of a dress affect the final end results of your session. if you are a laid-back person you wanted to go for something more on the comfortable side. But it could look more sloppy in the end results. So I will always suggest asking your photographer’s opinion on the outfits and send them a picture or two of what you had in mind. This also can create a vision for your photographer’s creative side knowing what you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for glamourous and over top. You also have a second option, without buying that dress. but support special local boutiques by renting the pieces! places like Crystal blossom boutique and Silverswallow designs offer the most beautiful dresses specifically made for photo session purposes. You support their work and you receive the most gorgeous outcome of your photo session.
IT'S NOT THE PRACTICALITY OF THE DRESS BUT HOW IT FLOWS.
This can sometimes confuse some clients, the dresses are created to be photoshoot ready not runway-ready, thus means crazy glitter or massive heavy or flowy materials. these pieces are specifically made in a manner to complement each pose in front of the camera. And of course, inspire your photographer’s creative side times 10!
Overall your session should vibe with the style and look that you’re going for. By this time you definitely have a collection of Pinterest board saves that you love. Look at the outfits, the style, and looks. and go from there,
And lastly never wear flats, always wear heels, it looks sleek, fabulous and flatters your posture.
