What to Wear | Photo Tip Tuesday | Dublin, Ohio Photographer
Today’s tip is for all engaged couples. Figuring out what one person should wear to a photo shoot is difficult enough but adding in another person makes it that much more of a challenge.
Tip #1: Don’t be too matchy-matchy. What I mean by that is, if your fiance is wearing blue jeans and a white t-shirt, don’t wear the exact same thing.
Tip #2: Make sure you are both comfortable in what you decide to wear. If you aren’t comfortable, it will show in the images. Also, keep in mind when selecting your wardrobe that you may be asked to sit on the ground or a bench, lay down on your back or stomach, stand up, or even be carried.
Tip #3: As for almost every photo shoot, try to avoid bright colors and bold patterns. If you want to incorporate those options, I suggest a belt, shoes, or a scarf.
Tip #4: Don’t forget about the shoes. Make sure they match and make sure they are clean on the top and bottom.
Tip #5: Keep the background in mind when selecting your wardrobe. You don’t want to blend into the background you choose.
Tip #6: This sounds a little obvious but lay the outfits next to each other or try them on before the session to make sure you like what they look like together.
Here are a few color combinations that I love and recommend:
- Black & white (really classy)- you can also use this as a base and add in pops of color like blue or red (or any color really)
- Navy blue or denim, maroon, and white or cream
- Brown, cream, and denim
I love royal tones like deep purple, maroon, and navy blue because they are beautiful and classy and don’t distract from the actual subject, you.
If you still aren’t sure what colors look good together, I recommend Pinterest. Just type “engagement picture outfits” into the search bar and you fill find several great recommendations.
