Keeping It Classy | Engagement Style | Charlotte NC Wedding Photographer

Engagement photos capture one of the most important and meaningful moments in your  life.  The images can be so breath taking, not because of the poses, location, or weather, but because of the love and emotion that is captured. Planning for your engagement session is important.  If you choose the right photographer, one with experience, they can help you best! One component I like to emphasize to my clients is to not let clothing be an after thought. Clothing that lets you to hold on, dance around, and play also allows you to show off your personality and the wonderful dynamic you two share. When styling yourself, you should keep it fun and flowy! Dresses that you can spin in help capture the joy that you and your fiancé share. If you want to wear jeans, keep the top soft with a little movement. For guys, definitely consider the collar! Jackets and shirts with collars allow you to hold onto them and get close while showing off your affectionate side. Also, if you and your fiancé are really playful, consider a hat! Hat's can be used in all sorts of ways and can act as a prop for you to play around with. Above all, make sure what you are wearing reflects who YOU are! You will be fondly looking back on these images for years to come.

If you are still not sure what you should wear take a look at some my favorite picks for engagement sessions.
