Let’s just paint a scene here. You had to find a perfect wedding location, order your dress and tux, write and send a few dozens of wedding invitations and taste a least ten wedding cakes.
All this, somehow made you forget about your engagement photo shoot that you had planned before any of these responsibilities arose.
However, never fear! We are here to help you with last minute issues you may have, most of which spin around your appearance.
- Get organised quickly
Choose a few outfit options a day before the shoot. Check the weather forecast and reject those that would most definitely make you feel too hot or cold during the shoot.
While picking your outfits, choose the clothes that you feel most comfortable in, yet make your outfits homonymous, not only regarding the colour scheme, but also regarding the style.
- Think about the location
Your clothes should somehow reflect the place you’re going to shoot in.
You don’t want to wear cargo shorts in a medieval castle or a tracksuit on a meadow. Your clothes should go well with the surroundings to make the pictures look even better.
- Don’t forget about the season you’re in
As we mentioned above, you want to feel comfortable during your engagement photo shoot. This refers to the atmosphere created on the set as well as the temperature.
Don’t wear knitwear during a hot day and don’t forget about it during colder season. Your mood and feeling will reflect in the pictures so think about these aspects ahead of time.
- Try to look natural
The engagement photo shoot is usually a beautiful prequel for your big day’s photos. And because in those you will most definitely look your most fabulous, try to keep it simpler during this shoot.
These pictures are to capture and frame your mutual feelings for one another, let’s not overshadow them with full-glam make up and complicated updo’s.
If you chose your wedding photographers well, they will take care of an overall atmosphere of the shooting day. Choosing your best angles, selecting locations with the most beautiful lighting or views.
They are there to make this time worthwhile and create the memories for you to share with your loved ones and to cherish forever.
