Here are a few tips to make your engagement session successful.
As I have already stated the obvious, higher an experienced and talented photographer that shoots the style you like.
Pick a date and time that is not stressful for you so you can enjoy it. I typically suggest starting the session 1-1.5 hours before sunset as this is fantastic lighting time.
Plan your outfits. A lot of people ask me what they should wear. I always say to keep it simple in regards to patterns and prints. You want to make sure your outfits compliment each other as well. Finally, fun shoes, scarfs jewelry and other accessories can dramatically change a photo so think about some special pieces for you!
