How to look Your Best in Engagement Photos:
Engagement season is here and in full swing! You probably have been thinking about all the details of your upcoming wedding and it is a jumbled whirlwind in your head! I know I have been there! While it is hard to slow down and be in the moment, engagement photos is a time to do just that. It is a great way to get comfortable in front of the camera with the person who will be photographing you on your wedding day. It is so much easier to meet your photographer for the first time before the wedding day. You can relax and just hang out with out thinking about the rest of the day. One thing to do is pick a location that is meaningful to you and your fiance. It could be somewhere you two go often such as a cafe or coffeshop. Or maybe you like to go camping or hiking- then and outdoor session in the woods would be perfect. Let your personality shine during the engagement session. There are so many wonderful places throughout all of Athens, Atlanta, and North Georgia that are perfect for your engagement session.
I always suggest 2 outfits for brides-to-be. Start off with something casual and then dress it up for the second half of the session. This could be jeans and boots or a causal sundress for the first and then a collared shirt or suit for him and a cocktail dress for you, maybe some fun high heels. There are no limits- be yourself. This is the most important! If you don’t feel like you, then you will not be comfortable in your engagement photos. Try to coordinate your outfits, avoiding prints and stripes that don’t translate as well on film. It is also so fun to have a few professional photos in your home that are not of you in your wedding attire. I can’t wait to chat with you!
