You toil over what you are going to wear out on Saturday night so, of course, picking out what to wear for an engagement session probably makes your head spin. Here are a few rules of thumb when selecting you and your man’s attire:
- Don’t be scared of prints- but if one of you is going for a print, the other person should wear a solid. (Example: you have a floral print dress? go for it! Your guy could wear a solid button down with jeans.)
- Don’t wear black. Sure it may be slimming but it doesn’t show up well in photos.
- Do ask your best gal for her opinion, that is if you respect her style. If not, ask someone else. You could even email us a picture of your ensemble and we will tell it to you straight!
- Do wear lipstick- even if you don’t usually wear it. I promise you will thank me when you get your pictures back.
Engagement sessions are great and we, here at WedCandy, highly recommend them. It is a great way for you and your guy to “practice” being in front of the camera. Plus, you get to know your photographer better and therefore, will be more comfortable on the big day.
