Engaging color

When getting pictures taken, many couples gravitate toward the tried-and-true white and light blues. I say, don’t be afraid of color! Of course, neutrals go a long way to tame bright colors, so play with both in your e-session outfits. This yellow skirt is sunny and colorful, but still muted if a lot of color is out of your comfort zone. If one of you is wearing a bolder print or pattern, the other should tone it down with solid or neutral pieces to balance things out. I love the idea of throwing on a scarf that picks up a color in your guy’s shirt. As always, the best advice is to make sure you are both comfortable in what you’re wearing.

His & Hers (more e-session outfits)

This week’s Fashion Friday is once again geared toward what to wear for your e-session. If you missed last week’s post on casual looks, check it out here. For your dressy looks, consider something vintage like these Mad Men-inspired outfits. Pick an era that speaks to you and have fun with it. Dressing up in clothing from another decade can be very freeing; allowing you to essentially take on another character and actually help you feel less self-conscious in front of the camera. There is a line though. Don’t get too costume-y. If you end up feeling like you’re in one of those old-time saloon photos from a family vacation to Branson, take it down a notch (or ten). Make sure you and your betrothed are both comfortable with whatever outfits you choose. If you force it, the photos will show that.

Coordinated effort (what to wear for your e-session)

Many engaged couples find it more difficult to figure out what to wear for engagement photos than to choose what to wear for the wedding! While there are as many options as there are personalities and styles, a good rule of thumb is to coordinate, but not match. Don’t think that you have to mask your personality by dressing super fancy either. Choose at least one dressier outfit and one casual one. Wear that outfit in your closet that makes you feel amazing, you know the one I’m talking about! Here is an option for a casually coordinated engagement session. Not exactly your style? Don’t worry, we’ll revisit this Fashion Friday subject in the coming weeks and give you more options to consider.

Fashion forward

This week’s Fashion Friday post features the first set I ever made on Polyvore. I wanted to create an outfit for senior pictures that would look trendy for the time, but also classic in a way that you can look back on it in 10 or 20 years and not cringe! I also think this look would work equally well if you are shooting your engagement photos. I think a red lipstick is always a good idea, just be sure to choose the right shade for your skintone.
