STYLE YOUR OUTFIT
we encourage you to wear outfits that truly point to who you are but also make you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera. coordination and styling your outfits together is the key. we suggest bringing two outfit changes. color coordinating your outfits using tones, not exact color matches, is a perfect combination! layering and texturizing your outfit with accessories pulls everything together cohesively. when your outfits are complimentary and you are comfortable, your personalities will shine through to put the focus on what matters the most: your love.
HOW TO PREPARE
