5 conseils pour des shootings de couple réussi
3. Wear comfortable clothes
In pursuit of perfect photos, do not overdress! Wear comfortable clothes in accordance with the location. Solid color pastel dresses for her, and smart casual trousers-shirt combinations for him are perfect for city engagements, for example. Take weather conditions into consideration as well, getting cold will not be helping to ease into the mood. If you can, consider hiring a stylist for the shoot. They will help create a perfect wardrobe and arrange several looks to change into throughout the day.
2. Choose a location that is meaningful to you
If you’re avid travelers, it can be fun to combine another trip with your engagement shoot. For those having a destination wedding, it can be your wedding location! Or maybe you want to highlight your favorite restaurant where you had your first date, the area you first lived together as a couple… This way photos will have that extra special personal touch.
3. Get to know your photographer
Most often, your wedding photographer will also be taking your engagement photos, so think about this session as a trial. Just like you will do your makeup and hair trial, or have a food tasting to finetune your menu on the day, your engagement session will help you to be at ease in front of the camera on the wedding day. Especially if you don’t have a lot of experience posing, this can be a great time to learn!
4. Get creative
If you want to do something more than simple walk + pose portraits, don’t be afraid to do it! Talk to your wedding planner and create a theme and a storyline for the photoshoot that will be meaningful and beautiful! Use decor, props, change locations, and make it a creative project to enjoy!
5. HAVE FUN!
Most important rule of all: never forget that engagement session is meant to be fun! Be yourselves, enjoy the day and do not overthink it!
