what to wear on your photo shoot: a starting point for the men

Hello, gentlemen.  You know that clothes can make a big difference in the overall turn-out of your photos- but where to begin?  Here are some wardrobe tips that will make you more photogenic (yes it is possible!)

Location & wardrobe should mesh, like it does in a movie, so look to the setting of the shoot and the other participants’ wardrobes.   For example, if your fiance looks like she’s ready for a night out on the town maybe wearing a slinky dress and stilettos, you don’t want to look like you are ready for the beach in a flip flops and a polo with jeans.

I’d start by suggesting that you wear a button down and dress pants or dark wash denim.  If it’s hot roll up the sleeves if it’s cold throw on another layer (maybe sweater or jacket).   I always suggest an undershirt beneath– it keeps perspiration at bay while keeping you looking polished.  Add several accessories– ties, sunglasses and hats can be added or removed if need be to change the look throughout the shoot and “hidden” items like watches and socks are more subtle, but can be brought into the photos as well.  Layering photographs very well– it will add depth and interest, bringing your wardrobe up a level, so definitely consider adding a layer.

 

Now that you have tried out the basic button down with fitted pants, accessories and added a layer, feel free to experiement to find what fits you.  Thanks for taking the time to read this, men.  I’d love to hear if it helps you, so please feel free to comment!

He is most likely going to do your first suggestion..already thought the same thing 🙂 We both just need to decide on outfits for the tennis part!! SOOO excited!!

What to Wear on Your Photo Shoot: A starting point for the ladies

Oftentimes clients ask me if there is anything that either of us can do to make them more photogenic, and I give them a resounding “yes.”

 
There is a reason why celebrities have professionals assigned to wardrobe, make-up, hair and setting for their shoots: all those aspects have a huge impact photos.   As your photographer, I get to know you and come up with a creative concept to capture you.  Pair that with a new outfit and top notch make-up and don’t forget the fab photographer behind the lens 😉 and you are a ten.  Seriously.   

 

The wardrobe inspiration I created below came from JCrew, H&M, Forever 21, Wet Seal & Tilly’s and all the dresses were under $50.  Gap, Anthropologie, Banana Republic & Free People are great, too.  

A great place to start is with a basic dress that is fitted at the waist and is either solid or has a subtle pattern.  Next, accesorize– slim the waist by adding a belt, draw attention to your face with a great necklace or hair clip, and by all means have fun with the shoes (bring along flip flops for travel if we are shooting on stiletto challenging terrain).  Layering (adding a jacket, cami, caridgan, etc.) photographs well– it really pulls the outfit together .  Undergarments are key, so make sure you are smooth and supported.  Lastly, feel free to experiment and have fun with it.

Now that wardrobe is taken care of,  how can you incorporate hair, make-up and set?

Location/props: We brainstorm together during our consult and these go into the creative concept that I have for your shoot.

Make-up & Hair: A trusted, experienced make-up artist and hair stylist can make a world of difference.  Hiring a make-up artist is probably the least expensive way to make the largest difference in your photo shoot.

I hope this has been helpful to you.  I’d love to hear what you think.

I love this! I had been considering getting my make-up done for our engagement session, but now am definitely going to do it. Also, I have to know – where is the little blue polka dot dress with the gold bow from? I LOVE it!

Can’t wait to see you for our shoot!

I absolutely love these tips!!! Possibly layering with a leather jacket would be nice for ours I think!? I also love those brown shoes! (the third pair in) 🙂

Chambersburg Country Club Wedding Photography: Katie & Jerry

Katie & Jerry were married on the hottest day of the year, but not even hundred degree temps could slow them down.  They were beaming all day and when the reception hit, the dance floor was filled with family and friends– everyone had such a blast.  Their event was filled with fun, elegance, color and I wish them the same proportion of joy for all the years ahead.  Congrats Katie & Jerry!!!

^ A great use of their engagement session DVD– they printed their photos wooden on blocks.  They also used them with their “unity sand” container.

^ A little prank: Every time someone is Katie’s family turns 50 they are given a cane as a joke– Katie’s mom gave her sister the cane at the reception.

Love, love, love!! Amazing as always!! Can’t wait to see the rest! 🙂

Elizabethtown Engagement Photography: Elaine & Matthew

Elaine & Matthew have a pure love that is simple and elegant.  While their wedding reception will be held in a country club in New York, they wanted their engagement session to go back to the roots of their farming families.  My goal was to capture thier relaxed vibe in an elegant way so that their personalities could shine through.  I must mention that I love the barn, such a perfect fit!

^ JCrew called, they want their models back 😉

Stroudsmoor Inn Wedding Photography: Anu & Steven

Two wedding ceremonies united these lovely families at the beautiful Stroudsmoor Inn.   The hindi ceremony incorporated colorful garlands, rich traditions and ornate attire, both ceremonies brought joy & laughter to the couple and their guests —all with the serene backdrop of the Pocono mountains at Woodsgate, an ideal setting for this Lehigh Valley wedding.  Their guests received silver elephants as favors, here is one balancing their rings:

thier first look:

The ceremony begins with her father welcoming the guests:

Uncles exchange garland:

With the Hindi ceremony complete, it was time for the Christian ceremony:

Their band, Indigo 6 🙂

Towards the end of the reception, Steve picked up the microphone and serenaded Anu!

Thanks for taking the time to view these photos.  Please feel free to comment below and purchase prints here.
