location ideas & tips

What to wear

choosing attire & colors

We recommend coordinating your colors but not going too matchy matchy. You want to avoid strong patterns and designs as these will take the focus away from your faces. Take the season into account as well and plan for your attire to complement the scenery of your chosen location. Feel free to ask our advice on your outfits of choice beforehand.

Add any other tips on wardrobe for your clients here to help them prepare for a successful engagement shoot.
