Portrait photography

This day is about you, so you want to look your best. This is a timeless picture of you as you are celebrating a great moment of your life. Here are a few simple guidelines to make this moment last timelessly.

       You can dress up or keep it casual. Keep a neutral color scheme while not using basic black or white. Neutral colors bring out the best of you on film. Layers are a great way to add some dimension to the images. Ladies - dresses are always a great way to flatter your body. Men, there is nothing wrong with getting dressed up in a nice suit or button down. If you prefer a casual look, that is great too. We want to express your personality in these pictures.

       Bring your clothes to the shoot.  If you wear your clothes beforehand they may crease and you want to look fresh and crease free. Bring an extra outfit you love so you are not locked into one look.

       You want to look timeless. Avoid wearing neon colors, or tight patterns like stripes that are too close. Avoid slicked back hair or pony tails. These things do no photograph well.

       Bring your make-up along. You may need to touch it up. Make-up is made for photographs, it lights up your features.  

       Bring some comfortable shoes along. You don’t want to walk up a hill in heels or uncomfortable dress shoes, so bring some comfortable shoes with you.
