Spring Engagement Photo Session @ Deep Cut Gardens
Love is all around us and spring has sprung, this is one of the best times to capture the emotions with an engagement session. Most people hesitate about engagement sessions because they just do not know much about them.
Here are a few simple tips:
Advance planning helps engaged couples make the most of their pictures and keep in mind that by having an engagement session you will have the opportunity to obtain beautiful casual pictures rather than the ones from your wedding in your wedding attire.
An engagement session is 1 to 2 hours, depending on location or locations and if the couple will be changing outfits. Couples should take the time to really think about their location and what time of year as these elements will become the backdrop that the photographer has to work with.
One of the most common questions:
What to wear for my engagement session?
Well, keep in mind rules are sometimes meant to be broken so in this case I will give you suggestions rather than rules and remember this type of photography session is an art form not a science.
Wear solid colors or simple patterns and a cute cocktail dress just don’t over do it and stick to fitted clothing anything baggy will make you look bigger than
you are. Of course this suggestion depends on the season on the flip side a layer look does look good as well.
