5 Things To Do Before Your Engagement Photoshoot
My best and favorite sessions usually are when we are able to break down your walls together so you can be yourself in front of the camera. I say "we" because it takes some work on your part as well. I will guide you through the session, but only you can truly allow yourself to let go.
Some tips on how to prep yourself before your next photoshoot:
👉🏻 Plan your outfit(s). I believe that the way you dress yourselves can take a photoshoot from good to great. That doesn't mean that you have to go buy a whole new outfit and only wear the most expensive things in your closet. It's all about being cohesive with your environment and its color palette. Think about what makes sense with where you will be (this is a big one when you're thinking about shoes), and what colors will complement the area.
👉🏻 Visualize how you want your photos to turn out. If you want carefree movement and intimate moments, then you have to let yourself be carefree and intimate in front of the camera. And you have to let yourself move! Don't be a stick figure.
👉🏻 Communicate with your photographer. Most people say that they are not good in front of the camera so they will be used to hearing that. However, if you have certain insecurities or things you're worried about, let me them know so they know how to best serve YOU!
👉🏻 Remind yourself that everyone is here for the same reason. No matter how silly you may feel in the moment, your photographer knows what they are doing and wants you to embrace what they are telling you to do.
👉🏻 Keep moving! Rigidity and stiffness do not photograph well. Channel that nervous energy into physical touch with your partner. Don't think of it as posing. Think about all the different ways you can show your person love and affection in the given position the photographer has put you in. I guarantee you, they will love it!
👉🏻 The most important thing to remember is just to get out of your head and to let yourself have fun! 😊
