Brides to be! Andi here, from www.andimans.com! So, congrats first of all, you are engaged, what an exciting time! So many fun things ahead to plans and brainstorm, but first, let’s shout out and share to the world your engagements…but some fabulous photos! One of the most frequent questions I received from my brides when prepping for an engagement sessions is “Andi what do I wear, anything I shouldn’t, is there a color a should stay away from, should we match” etc! As I explain in my AM Sessions video, it’s important to go a little bit out of your way on your engagement shoot, what I mean is, DRESS UP! I suggest two outfits, a casual/fun outfit that represents your everyday style but dazzled up a bit and a more glam look, not a formal dress ladies, I mean something feminine and sweet like a long maxi dress, sun dress, something flowy always looks amazing in photos, the breeze may hit it perfect in the wind or it’s fun to play with too, adding motion and expression in your photos. If you are taking your photos in natural light outside, stay away from green, we want to see you in the photos and not have you camouflaged :) Too bold and matchy matchy could be too much as well, we want you to stay consistent in outfits but you don’t have to look like twinsies, days of the white tops and blue jeans at the beach are over! All around, have fun with going shopping for fun style that represents you, hire a professional makeup/hair person, remember to accessorize and HAVE FUN!
