Here are a few guidelines to help if you’re feeling lost about what to wear :
Ultimately, you can wear whatever you'd like! These are your photos, and this should truly be all about you! The most important thing to me is that you guys feel and look like yourselves, how you normally dress, so you can be as comfortable as possible!
What you wear needs to not only be representative of who you are, but that you need to make sure you’ll be super comfortable in!
What Colors Look best in Photos?
I typically recommend my clients to lean towards neutrals and earthy tones and to stay away from bright colors. This doesn’t mean just creams and browns and grays. There are neutrals for every single color! Instead of green, go for a soft forest green. Instead of red, go with a deep maroon. Instead of yellow, go for a mustard yellow and so on.
Complimentary is good. When people match, they tend to blend together too much.
Choose colors that are complimentary to your skin tone. Unless you have an olive skin tone or darker skin, try to steer clear of reds, oranges, and pinks.
Avoid big, loud, chunky, crazy patterns. I recommend clients stay away from big patterns since they can be super distracting especially from their faces. However, I love patterns if they’re subtle and not too distracting!
Any clothing that can show movement or catch wind is a YES. I love incorporating movement into my photos.
I always encourage accessories or props! I love when couples bring hats, sunglasses, scarves, jewelry, blankets, a truck/car, a campfire, a bouquet, or your dog!
How many outfits should i bring?
Clients usually will bring around 5 shirts each and 3 pairs of pants/ bottoms so we can mix and match them to look best with each location and the light we have. We may end up using all or only two. It's completely up to you!
By bringing a handful of clothing options to mix and match, you’ll have a really good chance bringing an outfit that you’ll love and will work great for the photos!
