What Should I Wear to My Session?

The simple answer is: whatever makes you comfortable, confident, and happy.

The long answer is…we want you to feel good about yourself. So by all means, pull out the high heels that make you feel like a rockstar, wear the shirt that you know you always look good in, and bring a pair of sandals just in case your rockstar heels start to hurt! :)

For couples: We recommend staying true to your style. If you aren’t often seen in a cocktail dress and suit, it’s probably not a good idea to show up in them for your engagement session! We love to see brides in a cute dress, and grooms in button down shirts and jeans. Think about how your colors will coordinate together, and be careful to avoid clashing prints!

For families: Gone are the days of white oxfords and jeans! These days, we see families that pick a color or two (like grey and yellow), and build around that. Boys can wear jeans and polos, girls in sweet dresses, Mom in a pair of jeans and heels with a lovely top, and Dad in a button down shirt and pants. Accessories are lots of fun! Big necklaces, hats, even scarves (if the weather’s right) are all welcome additions.
