Engagement Photos

I love good engagement photos. Honestly, I think engagement photos are a great way to get to know your photographer. You will be able to really tell how well your personalities and style match. Although, not important for all vendors it's really important your personality matches with your photographer because you spend so much time with them the day of the wedding.

Some Tips
1. Don't wear white
2. Wear a bit more makeup than you usually do, but look natrual
3. I'm really anti the matchy match outfits, but coordinating is good, i.e if you are wearing a formal dress your fiance should wear something equally as formal
4. Wear something you can move around in, You want to be able to enjoy the shoot not worry if your outfit still looks presentable
5. Have fun. It's odd being the center of attention and if you do the shoot in a busy area it makes it even a little bit more odd, but if you have fun it will show in your photos!
