"What should I wear for the engagement session?"...It's such a common question, yet there’s really no right or wrong answer. To help though, I’ve pulled together a few things tips I thought would be helpful.
#1 Wear something that is comfortable.
There's nothing worse than going through an hour photo session feeling uncomfortable. Most folks aren't in front of the camera the majority of the time, so you're pants being too tight or your shoes killing your feet - are the last thing you want to be worrying about.
#2 Make it special!
If you’ve needed a reason to purchase that dress you saw at Macy’s, go for it! There’s never a better time to get something special. If you think a sparkling dress in an open field or out on the beach won't work, think again!
#3 Wear something that is YOU.
If the two of you have a favorite sports team, consider wearing your team jerseys for an outfit option. On the contrary, don't dress into something that just isn't you.
#4 Consider your surroundings.
If we’re headed to the beach consider apparel that is not in the “blue” family. Likewise, if we’re planning something around a lot of trees, consider staying away from the “green and tan” family. Additionally, if we’re planning something in nature – plan to bring some comfortable shoes.

A few other things to consider for the session:
Consider scheduling your hair and make-up consultation the morning/day of your engagement shoot. It will surely make you glow in your engagement photos. Check out the vendors page if you are looking for a hair and make-up artist.
Save the date concept. With the help of Pinterest, you can find a plethora of Save-the-Date ideas online. If there’s some creative idea you have, please share it! My only additional tip is, let’s make sure it doesn’t eat into too much time of your engagement session.
Accessories! And I'm not just speaking to necklaces and scarves (while layers are always good, easy to peel off and change a look slightly) - I'm talking about a prop such as a small bouquet of flowers, a blanket, a picnic, etc. We can stylize your session and tailor it to say something unique about the two of you.
