Ok this will be my LAST engagment photo post, promise! :)
I had severe engagement photo shoot anxiety. It stemmed from the huge question WHAT WAS I GOING TO WEAR?!
So I spent a good 2 months collecting pieces and spending all of my paycheck on random articles of clothing.
and then taking pictures of myself and creating a snapfish album to share with my mom so she could give me opinions from across the states!
When it came down to it I wasn't sold on any of these outfits, and these aren't even all of them! eesh!
A few short days before our shoot I found this beautiful J.Simpson number on Zappos.
Thankfully I am VIP status with them so I get free next day shipping (FYI they hand this status out like candy just express some dissatisfaction and you too will be VIP!)
Anywayy... In my anxious state I scoured sites to find tips on engagement photos and in turn came up with my own mish mash of tips for you all :)
DO NOT LOOK TOO MATCHY MATCHY (this was a HUGE no no for me)
Wear a neckline or accessory that frames your face
Don't look like a hooker!!!
Wear your make up and hair the way you normally do! No need for glamour shots!
DRINK A GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE BEFORE YOUR SHOOT! (my tip)
Trust your photographer! (sooo easy for me to do because we were CLUELESS and I 100% counted on her to tell me what to do!)
DRINK ANOTHER 1/2 GLASS OF CHAMPAGNE BEFORE YOUR SHOOT, but DON'T over do it, we dont want drunk eyes! ;)
