A lot of couples are camera shy and it’s totally understandable. I’ll be sharing tips on how to prepare for your portrait session. This blog post can help ease the nerves if you’re camera shy. Check out the tips and rock your engagement session.
The decision is honestly your choice. You have to figure out what matters and what vibes you want for your session. As I am based in Chicago, the most popular options are summer, fall, or spring. You hibernate in the winter unless you really love the cold and snow. Haha. Here are a few tips on when to schedule your date.
In my opinion, couples should be absolutely comfortable and themselves when choosing an outfit. I think you should have 1-2 outfit options if the location has an area for a change. Overall dress for your body and your partner’s body, you know what you feel yourself in. Here are some more tips that can help pick your wardrobe.
My last few tips are to enjoy yourself and don’t get stressed out. The photographer you hire may have a style guide to help ease your mind. After your session, you can use this time for a fun date night at a cute restaurant or a fun rooftop.
