7 Tips for Nailing Your Engagement Photos
- you can't miss this experience -
SHARE EVERYTHING WITH ME
Honestity is mandatory. I can only capture as you are if you just allow me. Remember how you interact when are alone, and don’t hide it: laughters, cuddles, sights,… I will, of course, guide you through the shoot, but I need you to be a part of you and allow me into your intimacy.
DON’T HOLD BACK
Be yourself! Maybe it could obvious but sometimes it is tough to commit to it. What I pretend is that your dynamic is the key of the shoot and so you won’t need to think what it supposed you have to do. Are you goofballs? Are you introverted?… I want to experience all thoes little moments you might otherwise consider the “outtakes”. Don’t act like you think you have to do it, I just want you to capture as you are. True emotions is out there.
DRESS LIKE YOURSELF
Dress comfortably, don’t feel like you need to “dress up” because it’s an occasion. Wear something you feel confident and comfortable in. Maybe a ripped jeans or a summery skirt, you do you!
MAKE IT AN ALL DAY ACTIVITY
You’re not going to be your cutest most genuine selves at the end of an errand-filled stressful day. So take it easy all day! Grab lunch together, get a drink, relax together doing something you enjoy. That way, when we meet for the shoot, you’re filled with love and excitement for each other, instead of just crossing one thing off the wedding to-do list. Let me capture you on your best day!
PICK AN ENVIRONMENT THAT REFLECTS YOU
It’s definitely not just about the location, but it’s about how you fit into it. The setting, location, and weather will affect your mood, and the mood of the photos, drastically. So I want to make sure you’re surrounded by what you love. Whether that’s your own home or a foggy mountain top, all that matters is that it’s you!
EMBRACE THE SPONTANEOUS ELEMENTS
And I don’t just mean the weather. I want you to embrace the rocks, the dirt, the paths less traveled, the wind messing up your hair, your dress getting dirty, and all the other spontaneous and “imperfect” elements. If it starts to rain, we’ll keep shooting and have fun with it! If we have to stop between each shot to flatten out your hair or fluff up your dress, the whole natural vibe will be thrown off. I want to keep it natural and honest, so just let go!
