Today on the blog, I’m sharing three solid tips to keep in mind when it comes to styling your engagement session. I’m also including a free download of my extensive Engagement Style + Prep Guide- and by extensive, I mean 44 pages! It’s got ALL the good stuff. The tips I’m sharing today are a glimpse into the guide, so let’s hop to it, shall we?
1.) Create a vision board. Pinterest is everyone’s BFF for all things weddings. Spend an hour or two going through and pinning colors, outfits and poses you and your fiance would like to recreate. Then, show your photographer.
2.) Cute and comfortable is key! When it comes to outfits, make sure what you wear is true to who you are. Do not match each other and do not wear patterned prints. Instead, go for complementary colors and solid prints. An engagement session is a great excuse for a new outfit (or two), but be sure to test it our before the day of your session (did someone say date night??). And don’t forget to iron or steam ahead of time!
3.) Location and timing are everything. The possibilities are endless here! Brainstorm locations that mean something to you as a couple. Places that excite you or take your breath away are a good place to start. But don’t be afraid to keep it simple either. Don’t rule out your favorite neighborhood coffee shop or that antique store you just can’t get enough of. Don’t convince yourself that they aren’t “fancy” enough. They are perfect if they make you happy. If you still are unable to think of some place, don’t worry! Your photographer will have some great recommendations.
Finally, one of the most important things to keep in mind when it comes to styling your engagement session is this: schedule it around the sun. The sunset time changes drastically during these three months. Here in Utah, plan on 5:00-7:00 until Mid- October. After the first week of November, plan on 3:00-5:00 PM.
