What To Wear

Different types of clothing photograph differently in front of the camera and they will be able to recommend different pieces that fit the theme and style you are going for.
Hair and Makeup
It’s important to get your hair and makeup look nailed down before you show up for your session. Be sure to find out if your photographer offers this service or if you will be required to show up with your hair and makeup already done. If they do not offer these services, find out if they partner with anyone in the area. If you have any questions about different looks, don’t be afraid to ask! Your photographer will know of some easy looks that look beautiful in front of the camera and will be able to give you some recommendations if you need them.

They will be able to give you suggestions and potentially a few different options. If you are stuck on a specific image, don’t be afraid to ask them for their opinion!
