So, heres the rundown.
HERE’S A FEW GUIDELINES TO HELP IF YOU’RE FEELING LOST ABOUT WHAT TO wear
Full disclaimer, I don’t know anything about fashion. There’s a hell of a good chance you’ve got better style than I do! This is just what I’ve found to work best from trial and error from past shoots, they’re only guidelines, not rules! You can show up wearing potato sacks for all I care. Ultimately, I want you guys to look like yourselves. Don’t feel like if you don’t follow these guidelines that your photos are gonna suck. The most important thing to me is that you guys feel and look like yourselves, how you normally dress, so you can be as comfortable as possible! A lot of people try to go shopping for new clothes for the shoot beforehand, but I actually recommend not going that route. Bring stuff you normally wear, stuff that’s already in your closet that you love and feel yourselves in. An old band t shirt and a pear of jeans? Perfect. A lot of my couples will go shopping for “nicer” looking clothes which is totally fine, but sometimes they regret not just wearing what they feel like themselves in.
you want these photos to represent who you are at the present moment in time.
As long as it represented what you guys are like right now, thats all that matters.
Heres are my tips!
First off, i would say, if you aren't sure what to wear - just message me some option and i can help you out! This way I can make sure the outfits compliment the environment so that the focus is on you two, not on any distractions, which yes, can be your outfits. All you have to do is make sure you are going to be wearing something that makes you feel like a million bucks!
iF YOU AREN'T SURE WHAT YOU WILL FEEL MOST COMFORTABLE IN ON THE DAY, YOU CAN ALWAYS BRING SOME OPTIONS ALONG! IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO GET SOME VARIETY IN THE PHOTOS WHEN IT COMES TO CLOTHING.
I typically recommend sticking with neutrals and earthy tones. Neutrals doesn’t mean just greys and browns, there’s neutrals of every colour (mustard, yellow, forrest green, navy blue, burnt orange, etc).
Stay away from bright, fluorescent distracting colours. The only specific colours I recommend to stay away from are pinks, bright oranges and reds. So just try and stay away from those colours if you can. But if you really have something you want to wear that’s one of those colours, just check with me! If you’re still feeling lost, you can always look through my past galleries to see what other couples or families have worn.

HAIR + MAKEUP
A lot of people ask me whether or not they should get your hair and makeup done by a pro. My answer is always “whatever will make you feel best, do that.” I absolutely don’t think it’s necessary whatsoever, because in my personal opinion, I would rather look like MYSELF rather than a super glammed up version of myself; especially because I wear pretty minimal makeup with a messy top knot most of the time. But, if you want your hair and makeup done, thats fine! whats most important is that you feel confident and amazing.
