7 Tips for what to wear on an engagement session

Ok, I  am not a fashionista, but I have learned what looks good in photographs.

These are some of my tidbits:

1) Wear clothes that make you feel beautiful!

I know myself being a “curvy” girl, I LOVE to wear dresses and they are what I feel most comfortable in.

2) Hire a great photographer!

3) Don’t be afraid to wear bold colors.  You don’t need to be all matchy matchy, but it is good to wear complementary colors.

See the wheel for examples of what colors go together.

3) Be careful of patterns and plaids, if you absolutely LOVE a dress with bold patterns, then have your partner wear a solid shirt to complement your bold pattern.

4) Bring a couple different outfits and your photographer can always advise you on what works best!

5) Dress for the weather and layers, this can add different looks for pictures, for ex. Cardigan or sweater, sport coat over jeans etc.

8) Smile and enjoy every moment!

After meeting these two, I knew that this couple had something special, a spark, a chemistry that I absolutely loved capturing.  There were such sweet emotions that were so precious. Beautiful sweet tenderness and tears, laughs, giggles and smiles.  On June 20th, these two tied the knot overlooking their close friends and family at Serra Cross in Ventura CA.  We started out at The Marriott in Ventura and took the getting ready pictures and bridal portraits. Samantha’s bouquet is beautiful!  I love the simplicity of the roses.

Today was a Fairytale at Oak Canyon Ranch Part 1

The Oak Canyon Ranch is a whimsical, woodsy, unique venue that I was overjoyed to shoot my French fairytale inspiration shoot.  I absolutely love Oak Canyon Ranch , If you are looking for a gorgeous venue that is surrounded by Oak trees where you can even have a chandelier that is hanging from a tree, then this is the place for you! This is a photographers dream to shoot here and if I was getting married again, I would have my wedding here in a heartbeat.
