6 Tips for an Amazing Engagement Session

6 tips for an amazing engagement session - Dayton and Cincinnati Engagement Photographer

We love engagement sessions! They are a great way to celebrate with your new fiance and show off your unique style. We realize being in front of a camera can cause all sorts of nerves (we aren’t all supermodels at heart), so we will give you tons of direction and take care of making you look fantastic. 

So how do you prepare for your upcoming shoot? Here are our 6 tips for an amazing engagement session: 

  1. Wear cute shoes!
    We love to photograph cute shoes and they really pop on camera. Consider this your invitation to go shopping. 
  2. Don’t be afraid to look hot.
    Pick outfits that make you feel amazing. If you feel sexy, you’ll look sexy. Don’t force yourself into an outfit that is uncomfortable. Stick to things you would normally wear. The right outfit will give you confidence and help you relax. And yes, this goes for girls AND guys. 
  3. Lean into color.
    A fun, colorful outfit will make your picture pop. Don’t be afraid to let your style come through. These pictures are all about you! 
  4. Find your vibe.
    Some people want to walk into the sunset, while others want to dance in the rain. Pick the time of day and location that suits the vine you want. We are up for whatever!
  5. Makeup is important.
    Pay attention to your eyes. Eyeliner and a good mascara are an absolute must. Your eyes will be the most important element in many of your images and you want them to pop! 
  6. Bring a prop.
    A hat, a jacket, a baseball bat, a surfboard, your favorite bottle of wine, your dog…anything that tells the story of who you are. It’s not required, but it definitely gives your photos something unique. 

Oh and don’t forget to have fun! These pictures are meant to reflect the two of you during one of the best times of your life. Relax, enjoy, and trust us with the rest!
