So you have no idea what to wear to your portrait session?
Here are a few ideas that will help you choose the best clothes, and look your finest.



Choose a variety of outfits: Choose and bring a variety of colors, including black and white. Choose 1-3 colors for your group portrait, ones with similar tones that go nicely together and have everyone work within that color palette. For example: dark green, navy, and burgundy – all dark jewel tones. Or tan, a lighter olive green, and denims – all lighter, softer tones. So that we see the people first and your portrait looks stunning.


Wedding group photos look so good because they’re all wearing the same colors and the people stand out!



And for fun, try to add in an unexpected POP!! of color.





Think coordinating, not matching. Stay clear of stripes or busy lines or polka-dots: your face should be the focal point of your portraits. If you do wear a print, make sure it is subtle.





Feet: Some poses will show your shoes so don’t forget to bring shoes and socks for each outfit that you plan to wear. Barefoot is always ok, especially for beach portraits.



Sunburn and tan lines A very common problem we see is sunburn and tan lines. Try to keep out of the sun a week or two before your session. We see uneven sunburn from ball caps, peeling skein on noses from recent burns or raccoon eyes from sunglasses. Girls, avoid strap lines if you wish to be photographed in a strapless formal dress or top.
