Tips to look amazing for your engagement session

You have an engagement session coming up.  You want to look amazing for the session.  The images from the engagement session will be used for your save the date cards, decorations, décor in your new residence with your husband. There are many more uses for your engagement session at your wedding.  Check out our other blog on it HERE.

When we do an engagement session with our couples we send them and email with tips on what to wear so they will look amazing for their engagement session.  The attire you wear will help draw attention to you in the images.  This is where the focus should be, on you and your fiancé.

First, we recommend you bring two outfits to your engagement session.  One of the outfits you bring could be dressy jeans and a nice blouse you may go out to dinner in.  The colors should coordinate with one another.  For instance, light blue and dark brown work together.  Whereas red and green do not.  For the second outfit we recommend something a little dressier that is if it fits your style and personality.  After all we want you to be comfortable so your personality shines.  An idea is maybe a summer dress or a cocktail dress with heels and accessories.  Your fiancé’ could wear slacks, nice button down shirt and tie, something that will be dressier than jeans. Your clothes should be form fitting vs loose fit.  Make sure that they are free of lint and are ironed.

The clothes you wear for the engagement session should be somewhat plain. By wearing plain clothes, by plain think solid color with little variation. If you wear plain clothes in an image then that will focus attention on your faces not on your clothes.

By all means, if you want to go out and purchase a new wardrobe for your engagement session there are several boutique clothing stores at the Lake of the Ozarks area.  Contact us and we can point you in the right direction.

If you have hired your makeup artist you may want to set up a trial run of your makeup.  If you let us know in advance, we can schedule your engagement session to take place after you get your makeup done.  This way we can see how your makeup photographs and make any changes necessary for your wedding day!
