What to Wear to Your Shoot

    One of the most frequent questions I am asked by clients is "what should I wear to the shoot?". Hopefully, this guide will give you a little help when choosing outfits for your session!

    The examples that are mentioned below can be used as a guideline for Autumn and Winter sessions. 

    When it comes to outfit decisions, a great place to get initial inspo from is your location. Pulling tones right from your backdrop will help keep the photos looking natural, no matter the setting. I also advise clients to stray from neon colors and bold patterns, a subtle design is perfectly fine, just be sure it isn't too distracting. 

    For families and engagements, I like to suggest sticking to a color scheme, I have a few examples on here that pair well with specific locations! Use your shoot as an excuse to spoil yourself with a new breezy gown or a pair of booties! Ultimately, wear what you and/or your family are comfortable in and never hesitate to reach out for advice!
