7 Tips for rocking your engagement session
Yay, you have decided to do an engagement shoot! For most of us, that thought is really intimidating and we totally understand!
So whether you are a natural in front of the camera or super shy and nervous at the thought of it, we want to make sure that you make the best of your engagement session, and more importantly that the images reflect the true and real you.
So here it is, some of our tips to rock your photo session:
1. BE FREE, BE YOU!
The first tip might be obvious but we are going to say it anyway- just be yourself!
We understand that sounds so much easier than it might be in front of the camera, but the truth is we want your personality to set the tone and mood of the shoot. Are you laid-back, an introvert or a bit shy or are you romantic, spontaneous and sometimes goofy? We want to experience all those little things and real moments. Don’t get too obsessed with Pinterest photo examples or what you think a shoot ‘should’ look like we want to document your love.
YES this requires a lot of trust on your side but we can only capture the true you if you allow us into your space, we will of course guide you on the day but nothing beats real and intimate moment.
2. SWEET OLD SUNSHINE
Light is truly magical and can set the right mood and tone to your session.
The thing about glowy, warm and beautiful sunset/sunrise photos is that well …they happen at sunset/sunrise and yes light is pretty important for those perfect couple photos. If you booked us because you liked our style we highly recommend following our time guideline for the optimal results.
3. LOOK GOOD, FEEL GOOD
Wear something you feel confident and comfortable in. Whether that’s skinny jeans or a summery dress, you just do you! Here is also something to consider, don’t be afraid to add a pop of colour or to bring along a pretty hat, bag, flower crown or anything else you love but mostly don’t overdo it…if you love chilled photo sessions -plan a chilled outfit and not too busy location, want to do something a bit more glamorous? consider a different approach in your venue and outfit choice. Want to be that cool vintage couple – embrace the look. Need some inspiration? Send us a message.
4. RELAX AND TAKE THE DAY EASY
5. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION…
Whether it’s an at home session of you guys making pancakes or a sunset in a beautiful field, moments on top of a mountain or somewhere cool in town we really just want to capture your love somewhere that you love.
You’re not there for me. We are there for you: to document your story. Our aim really is to capture an exciting time in your life, while you chill together. We promise you, this photos session won’t be cheesy or awkward, so wherever we meet up just relax and know it’s going to be fun.
