I know that picking out outfits can seem like the most daunting part of getting ready for any photo session, so I’ve put together a few of my favorite tips from my years of helping couples pick out outfits, and also from getting to plenty of shoots and having that “oh man, I wish they hadn’t gone that route…” moments.
First of all, I definitely recommend bringing a couple different options, even just for an hour long session. That way if you get there and something doesn’t quite go with the environment we chose for the session, then quick changes can be made! Also, this allows you to change midway through the session, and gives you some great variety in your photos. That being said, please only bring a few things, and don’t try to stick your entire wardrobe in the back of your car. That’ll waste precious session time, and will be overwhelming for both of us. Keep in mind that, depending on where we’re shooting, you may be doing your outfit change in the middle of the woods, or in an empty parking lot, so if you’re hoping to get an outfit change in, pick your undergarments accordingly!
