Once you decide to book your couples session, you may have many thoughts running through your head! What do I wear? Where should we go? I’m here to help prep you for having an awesome session!
First and foremost, think of who you are as a couple. Do you love adventure? A photo session on a nature trail or state park is a great way to showcase YOU. Mostly love spending time at home watching Netflix or gardening? An in-home session might be best! Do you love the city? Downtown Cincinnati and Dayton are great spots to capture your love. Do you love all of those things and can’t decide? Not a big deal at all – I’m here to help you choose an amazing spot.
Once we narrow down the location, next it’s time to pick clothes. Many people worry and stress out over finding the perfect color combination to match one another. I’ll give you a hint – for my engagement shoot, my husband and I didn’t prep our clothes at all. I wore black jeans and a hot pink shirt, and my husband wore his normal jeans and a blue & white checkered shirt. We didn’t match at all, but we looked like ourselves and photos came out amazing!! However, I must admit, that coordinating colors and looks also look fab – just be sure it reflects who you are!
Ok, so now you have the perfect location, awesome outfits, but now the weather looks off! Clouds are in the forecast and uh-oh now rain is! If the weather looks like it will be a problem (which let’s be honest – it’s Ohio – that’s a regular around here!) we can always find an alternate date, BUT, sometimes working around the weather can be fun too! I once did a family session in full rain and there were so many laughs!! The key here is that I’m flexible and want you to have a great session, so we’ll work to make that happen.
You might be thinking, ok – this seems too simple – what about posing, makeup, and props? As far as posing, I always come with ideas but my speciality is capturing you candidly, so no worries there. When it comes to make-up (or hair) I recommend you style yourself as you normally would. Can’t decide between red lipstick or pink? I’m here to help you out. And what if you want a sign, funny hats, or a blanket in your session? I say heck yeah! Let’s do it!
