3 Great Ways To Prepare For Your Engagement Photography Session


When getting married in Northern Michigan, it is important that everything is planned perfectly for your high-end wedding. One very important step in the process is getting your engagement photos taken. These photos will be used for everything from your wedding invitations, to decorations for your wedding and reception, and will perhaps even be hung in your future home. Because of this, you want them to be perfect. Thankfully, there are certain things that you can do to prepare for your engagement session to ensure that it is a successful experience for you and your fiancé. Here are three ways that you can prepare for your engagement session.

Hiring A Hair And Makeup Artist 

how-to-prepare-for-your-engagement-photography-session-3You want to look your absolute best for your engagement session photos. In order to do this, you want your hair and makeup to look absolutely perfect. The best person to ensure that this happens is a hair and makeup artist. They can do basically any hairstyle that you can think of, making it possible for you to look perfect for the photos. They also have access to the best makeup on the market and years of experience applying makeup on their clients. They can give you everything from a bold makeup look, to something that is more natural.

They will likely have you come in before the day of your actual photography session so that they can practice your hair and makeup and ensure that it is perfect. This also gives you the opportunity to change your mind if you find out some hairstyle or makeup application doesn’t like how you thought it would. Then, on the actual day of your pictures, they will likely have you come in a few hours before the session to give them ample time to make you look perfect and feel absolutely stunning. This will then show in the photos and you will fall in love with them.


Hiring A Florist For A Bouquet

Whether you are having a beach or other outdoor engagement photography session, it is important to incorporate some beautiful flowers into the photos. The flowers will add a gorgeous pop of color and will make the photos look more classy and professional. These flowers can be added to the photos by hiring a florist to create a luxury bouquet for you.

The florist will show you a huge variety of flowers and bouquet arrangements, giving you an idea of what your options are. You may want your bouquet to match your wedding colors, if you know them already, so this is something to keep in mind. You also want the bouquet to blend in well with your outfit, your fiancé’s outfit, and your surroundings, so remember this as well when you are creating the bouquet. The florist can be a huge help to you in terms of what will look best, so listening to their advice is often an excellent idea. Once you have picked out exactly what flowers you’d like for your bouquet, it will then be created with fresh flowers on the day of your engagement photography session.



Wear High-End Dressy Clothes 

Your engagement photos definitely give you and your fiancé the opportunity to dress up in high-end clothing. You can keep things very classy by wearing a flowing dress and designer shoes and then having your fiancé wear a custom suit, or even a tuxedo.

You will want the pattern or color of your dress to go well with your surroundings so that the color scheme flows well and everything goes together nicely. It may also be a good idea to have some aspect of your finances suit or tuxedo match well with your dress, such as his bow tie or tie. Having a couple different outfits to wear for the engagement photography session may also be a good idea because it gives you a bit more variety and ensures that you love the photos.

When it comes to preparing for your engagement photography session, be sure to hire a hair and makeup artist to ensure that you look your best, hire a florist to create a gorgeous bouquet for you to use in your pictures, and choose high-end dressy clothes for you and your fiancé to wear.
