Deciding what to wear for couple’s photos doesn’t need to be stressful.

Instead of thinking about a shoot, let’s plan an amazing Adventure for you and the person you love most in this world. The world can be chaotic and crazy at times. We are here because in the middle of everything, you met each other. You love each other enough that you want photographs to remind you, your friends and your family of how much you two care about each other. So let’s plan an Adventure that is worthy of all that!

So what should we wear?

Wear clothing that makes you feel like you!

My photos are about capturing you and your love having an amazing time, so choose clothing that makes you feel confident, free and alive!

we want you to wear clothing that showcases your personality. It’s all about styling and planning.

Honestly, the more time and planning that you invest into your session, the better it turns out and the more you like your photos! Leaving the details to the last minute creates stress and takes the fun out of the day.

As a general rule, Try to stick to solid colors that are not heavily saturated. I usually suggest for my clients to wear more subtle colors like white, navy blue, maroon, grey, black, cream, etc. Just a little side note: darker colors make you look thinner and lighter colors do the opposite, so keep that in mind when styling your wardrobe! Most importantly, make sure that you & your man’s outfits compliment each other!

When choosing color schemes, consider not only what looks best on you, but also what colors will look best on wall portraits and complement your home’s decor.

Sessions are not just about the photos, they’re about the styling and the planning!

You can pick if you want to wear something romantic and flowy or something casual.

As a photographer, love romantic long and flowy dresses. Your man can wear anything from a suit to just a button up! How formal you want to go is completely up to you.

Now for the casual dresser! For the ladies, I would recommend something that you feel beautiful and comfortable in! This can be just a pair of leggings with a shirt or a cozy sweater with your favorite jeans! Make sure that you are comfortable enough to run and jump around and for a piggy back ride! For your man, I would recommend neutral solid colored pants like black, tan, dark blue, etc or jeans and either a casual button up, sweater or a t-shirt. As a general rule, don’t wear large loose clothing or turtlenecks because they make your neck disappear & make your body look wider than it is.

Avoid the running shoes. If you are thinking about wearing heels, keep the location in mind & bring an extra pair of comfy booties or sandals just in case. It never hurts to come prepared! If you’re going casual, going barefoot is always an option as well.

Accessories are always optional! They add a lot of personality to who you are.
