16 common mistakes and tips to overcome those mistakes for your Engagement Photography

1. Location
Sometimes, a shy client may choose a location that is swarming with people, which only amplifies their shyness and tension during shoots. Be sure to research the best times to visit a location! But, let’s be honest, the more comfortable you feel, the more natural and honest your captured expressions will be.

2. Time of Day
Photo sessions which occur outdoors, in the middle of high noon, while the sun is at its brightest with no shade available is a disaster waiting to happen.

3. Select your wardrobe
Oh my gosh! How many morning have you stood in front of your abundantly full closet and said, “What am I going to wear!?” Here are some tips: – Select a color palette with one to two colors and add neutrals. In selecting your colors, feel free to pick different shades within that palette. This will allow a more balanced image.

4. Solid colors are preferred over patterns
Why? Because patterns take the attention away from the subject (that’s you) and draw the eye to the patterned clothing. Also, many patterns are extremely overwhelming. I’m not saying don’t do it, but be selective.

5. Do not wear the same outfits or colors
For example: you and your honey shouldn’t show up in blue jeans and a white shirt. Attempt to counterbalance each other.
