What To Wear To Your Engagement Session, Part I

What To Wear To Your Engagement Session, Part II

In Part III of this series, we are going to talk about accessorizing your engagement look!  When I say this, the first thing that might come to mind is a 1980’s Madonna music video: a bride with big hair and big hair accessories, mesh gloves and way too many necklaces and bracelets. However, I am a lover of classic & timeless, so you can be sure no Hair Net will be involved! Picking one key accessory is the trick and this mainly applies to the ladies.  

Tip 1: Wear a statement necklace.  This is a great way to add some fun to your look, while keeping it classy.  

Tip 2: If you wear a statement necklace, wear understated earrings - or, vice versa and you can switch it up between outfits. 

Tip 3: Avoid flashy bracelets, they detract from your engagement ring - we definitely don’t want that!  If you really want to wear a bracelet, keep it small and understated.

Tip 4: For the guys... wear a belt that matches your shoes.  If you are wearing brown shoes, you should be wearing a brown belt.  You don’t want to wear a black belt with brown shoes or a brown belt with black shoes.  This is a good tip for everyday life as well!

Tip 5: I already mentioned this is the post on style, but ladies, wear heels with dresses.  Your legs will look amazing and you’ll thank me when you see your photos!  

Tip6:  Make-up: Keep it natural or how you normally wear it.  You can definitely step it up a notch (it’s not a bad idea to get your make-up done professionally for you photo session and this can serve as a run through for your wedding day), but you ultimately want to look like you!  You are beautiful, so let your natural beauty shine though!


Tip 7: With all the tips that I have given you, this one I want you to remember first: be true to yourself! When you look back on your photos, I want you to love what you see, not think “what was I thinking?”  You are going to feel your very best when you feel confident and happy and that’s what I want to capture!  

Congratulations on your Engagement! The fun has just begun!
