Engagement Photo Shoot - Kilkenny, Wicklow, Cork, Dublin
Having an engagement photo shoot some time before the wedding is an amazing way of celebrating the big decision as well as giving you a prep ahead of time.
These pictures also serve as a way of getting familiarised with the camera, and the wedding photographer and his or her ways of working.
Also, you can use these pictures as a wedding alert for your relatives and friends.
But, one question remains – what to wear in your engagement photo shoot?
There are lots of options.
• The birth of new beginnings
Spring is the time of new beginnings, so be simple, yet add seasonal treasures. Bride to be can wear a woven garland of wild flowers. These effortless touches will make your photos appear lighter and more mature.
• Be romantic
Flowers, linen fabrics and nautical stripes – this are the ingredients for a breezy summery engagement photo shoot. You may also think about the accessories like straw hats, sandals or, more out of the box, marine ropes to add just a smidgen of originality.
• Pop out, be bold
Depending on the style of your engagement photo shoot, you can incorporate a little bit more of colour. Bright yellows, oranges and reds will be an amazing addition during the autumnal months. You two surrounded by colourful leaves on slowly season-changing background. Idyllic, isn’t it?
However, remember about good make up – these colours tend to wash people out, think about that ahead of time, and pick the colours that work well with your complexions.
Textures are what usually make the wintery pictures. Thick knitwear, warm blankets and red fireplace in the distance. All that guarantees the cosy feel of closeness. So grab your favourite cardigan and a scarf and let them help you create this snug atmosphere.
Yet, if you are more into other aspects of winter...
• Add a pinch of glitter
Sparkly accessories or attire can beautifully reflect light in the pictures. With the festive season coming up, most couples like to get into magical mood by adding some sparkle. Sequins, reflective stones or glittery prints will definitely stand out in these pictures.
• Be you
All in all, be you. If you are shy and don’t have the desire to experiment, wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. In the end, this photo shoot is for you to cherish in the years to come. The pictures won’t turn out as good as they could if you felt constrained, dressed up or overdressed.
So wear anything that makes you happy!
