how to master the dressy/casual look.

I rarely advise my clients to wear a formal suit to their engagement session (unless we are shooting someplace super formal).  But many clients still want to look a bit dressy, but not OVERDRESSED for their shoot.

I have to say, this couple nailed it!!

Take a look:

On McKay....He dresses up a casual pair of jeans by pairing it with a tie and a blazer.  He further enhances his outfit by layering with a casual sweater and wearing a pair of nice shoes. He is dressed up, but not TOO dressed up.  It fits this location perfectly.

On MacKenzie....She wears a bright pink dress to add color to the neutral background.  She is aware that we are shooting in a field so she wears appropriate shoes. Her makeup is natural and she accessorizes with a few bracelets and earrings. She is dressed up, but not TOO dressed up.

The key to dressing well for your engagement session is to dress location appropriate.  You can read more tips on dressing well for your engagement session HERE
