The 3 Sure Ways to Better Engagement Pictures



1.       Clothing. Your clothing is VERY important, take the time to choose outfits that will complement you and that will make you stand out from the scenery.  If your engagement pictures are in the desert, then stay away from neutral or soft colors that can make you blend in with your background.  You want colors that will make you can pop! Another way to stand out is to wear something amazing, you get multiple outfit changes so don’t be afraid to throw on a beautiful long gown, it will make your engagement pictures elegant.  Also, wear heels and bring sneakers and sandals to walk around when we are not taking pictures.   


2.       Hair and make-up.  Typically, when you hire your hairdresser and make-up artist for your wedding day they offer you a free (Test) session to give an idea of how you will look on your wedding day.  Schedule those on the same day of your engagement pictures.  It will give you a better idea of how your pictures will come out on your wedding day.  You will be glad you did.


3.       Time. Plan yourengagement pictures with time, don’t wait last minute to book your engagement session.  Be aware of your wedding date so that you can take advantage of the seasons.  In the winter, we can get amazing pictures fall themed pictures.  In the spring, we can get the beautiful flower blooms.   Also, if you live in the desert it is important to take into account the summer heat. Unless you are an early riser it is not a good idea to take pictures when it’s too hot.   In the really hot summer months I schedule 6-7am shoots.
