Let's be real. If you've NEVER had your photos taken, it can be a little intimidating. I hear my clients say with, "what do I wear? Are my teeth are white enough? I want photos that will represent our love, how do we do that? ".
 
So let me ease some of the pressure for your our shoot together! Here are some tips that could help you. 
The week before the shoot, it's time to start planning. 
  1. Let’s start with location. You've seen photos that catch your eye, you’ve pinned some photo ideas on Pinterest, + you have your favorite place you go to. So let me be your third wheel and take me to your favorite spot. Whether that’s the beach, the movie theater, the place you first met, or even out of state. Il even pitch in for my flight. Wherever makes your love come alive, I’ll be there. 
  2. Outfits. I want you to be comfortable + I want you genuine. Don't wear a turtleneck sweater and khakis if thats not you or your significant other!Bring 5 outfits + we will pick which shows you best. Try picking out earthy/nude tones, like burgundy, tan, mustard yellow, forest green, etc. You can never go wrong with flowy options of clothing, like a sweater, t-shirt + overalls, maxi dress, etc. Add textures in there. Sumptuous textures lend a rich, tactile element to your sess. I am also HERE FOR YOU to text your outfit ideas too! 
  3. Hair, Skin, + Nails. I always feel like we get a pimple the day before our shoot. Like the universe knows we have invested this time and money and decided to grant us the gift of a pimple. Don’t Pick. A pimple is very easy to cover it with makeup, but scabs, wounds + flaky patches are more tricky. Instead, exfoliate a week before + lotion if you see flaky skin. If you’re also concerned with your teeth, crest  white sells white strips that whiten in less than a week. Your hair, we want it down + flowy with movement. I encourage you to pamper yourself and get your hair + makeup done
  4. Location. You've seen photos that catch your eye, you’ve pinned some photo ideas on Pinterest, + you have your favorite place you go to. So let me be your third wheel and take me to your favorite spot. Whether that’s the beach, the movie theater, the place you first met, or even out of state. Il even pitch in for my flight. Wherever makes your love come alive, I'll be there. 
  5. Props. If you guys love STAR WARS, then bring a lightsaber. If you love board games then let's take pictures of you guys cozy in your home playing in your sweats + oversized tshirt playing your fav game
