Reem and Arash met me for the first time in the Montage in Laguna Beach where they will be getting married this April. Neither of them had to say a word before I knew that I just HAD to be their wedding photographer! Lucky for me, they agreed, and we started planning for their engagement photos.
My couples always ask me what they should wear for their engagement session, and I have two basic rules:
1. Do not wear matching outfits unless you do so on a regular basis 2. Wear clothes that are the same level of formality (casual, dressy, formal--whatever, just be on the same page)
I have to say though, that I LOVE it when couples get into the spirit of the shoot and choose really interesting outfits that are fun for me to shoot. Lately there's been a little trend at least among my couples to do a casual outfit and a super formal outfit. Reem and Arash chose two formal outfits, and I could not have been more excited about how they took the two locations we chose into consideration when selecting their wardrobe. The Mission in San Juan Capistrano is a dramatic spot that lends it self well to dramatic outfits. So if you are wondering what to wear for your engagement photos, look no further!!
