Little Black Dress?


Little Black Dress?

"My engagement pictures are next week!! Yay!" "Oh man, what am I going to wear??"

"The little black dress?"

Yes!! If you are going for mysterious and powerful that is. You see the COLOR you wear actually sets the mood of the photo shoot.

Colors are powerful. Think about those nights you decide to rock the red dress. You are commanding attention, making a statement about confidence and power. If you had put on a cute green dress instead, you would be setting a very different mood. One of calmness, loyalty, stability.

I love this stuff! Check out what your colors are saying:


So with that in mind, here are my top 3 tips for picking out the color you are going to wear on your engagement shoot:


Make sure the color you are wearing, looks awesome next to the color your hunny is going to wear. If you are rocking the bright and vibrant, don't put your man or woman in a pastel.

2014-07-16_0005.jpg I love variety. Bring different outfits to your shoot, and you will end up with a lot more variation in your pictures. In one evening we can go from sassy and sexy (red) to sweet and innocent (white). Just with a swap of a shirt! Mix it up and have some fun!
