Great photos start with great planning

Here are 5 tips from the Something Minted Style Guide shared with couples before for their engagement photos:

1. Choose attire that coordinates in color and style. Wearing a pattern? Try picking a solid color for your partner!
 
2. Love seeing dresses swept up in the wind? Make sure you wear the kind of textures that reflect that vision! For a lighter feel, select colors like blush, gray and cream.
 
3. If you opt for a pair of great heels or shoes high in style but low in comfort, be sure to bring some comfy flats for walking from one location to the next!
 

4. When in doubt, pack it! Come wearing your favorite outfit, or the one you’ve always wanted to break out, and bring a backup if you can’t decide. I always suggest more formal attire, think “wedding guest wear.”

5. Consider planning a run-through for makeup (here’s a tried & true recommendation!) and nails around this photo op if possible. Treating yourself will have you celebrating before we begin & feeling all the more confident!

Aside from sharing with friends and family in eager anticipation, this photography session offers a time to become familiar with posing flows. I believe nothing builds trust better than experience and these 5 tips for engagement photos will make for a session you’ll love!
