Style is definitely a personal preference. While we do have some ideas on what works best for photos, there are definitely some exceptions. For urban settings, I like bold colors that make you pop out in the steel and concrete backgrounds. I feel reds, yellows or other bold colors look great in the city for our brides. The guys are usually a bit more subdued. Then for the beach, lighter to more neutral colors work great most of the time. You can also bring a change of outfits which will enable you to have a different look. Again, these are all just suggestions. When it comes down to it, you should wear what makes you feel and look your best.
As far as what you should bring, here are some suggestions:
- We will most likely do a lot of walking, so bring something comfortable to walk in. Slip-on shoes or flip flops for the beach. Then you can change into nicer shoes when we shoot.
- Water and maybe a snack. Important to stay hydrated! And depending on when we shoot, we may be shooting during dinner time. A snack may help to get you through the session if hungry.
- A change of clothes in the car. You may want to change out of your clothes after we are done with the engagement session.
- A towel to keep in the car. This will help with any necessary cleanup.
