First of all, I highly recommend bringing options.
They will be our friend on the day of. You can bring 4-5 tops and 2-3 bottoms (and a couple dresses and accessories as well if ya want more options) with you, and I’ll help you choose from them so we end up matching the scenery and get bomb photos. Your other half can do the same thing, and we’ll choose from his picks as well! If you’re not down to change in the car on the side of the road, no worries, send me a few pictures of the outfits you’re deciding between beforehand, and I’ll help you choose!
I also recommend bringing a second layer of some sort, maybe a jacket, kimono, scarf, or sweater.
Especially if we’re sticking to one location, being able to take it off throughout the session and have a bit of a different look going is great to get some more variety in your gallery! Just make sure you guys bring clothes you’ll feel comfy and confident in, and I’ll do the rest! So you might be thinking, “but I’ve got this really great outfit I bought just for this, are you saying I might not be able to wear it?” Maybe. Something that looks dope in everyday life, may not look as good in your photos because they could be distracting, a colour that doesn’t look good in our location, or a style that just doesn’t match the setting. I’ll give you examples in a minute.
Lastly, just remember that none of these guidelines are rules, they’re guidelines.
These are what I’ve found look best in photos, but if you want to wear a cow suit for your photos, go ahead and wear a cow suit for your photos.
