WHEN CHOOSING COLORS FOR YOUR OUTFITS, I RECOMMEND selecting softer, lighter tones and more muted shades. By avoiding ultra-bright, bold colors, it will help bring all the attention to your faces and let the eye focus on the way you feel about each other. The camera loves shades of soft pink and muted blues, mixed with sophisticated light neutrals like heather gray, creams, leather brown and white. That softer color palette fits beautifully into almost all natural outdoor environments, and especially complements the Michigan landscapes.

LONG, FLOWY SKIRTS/DRESSES with feminine ruffles, multiple layers of fabric and the ability to blow and move in the wind will always photograph beautifully!​​​​​​​​

COORDINATE DON'T MATCH your outfits. If someone has a pattern then use that pattern's colors. Give everyone their own dominate color and pull from the outfit with the pattern if needed.

PATTERNS: Too many patterns can make your images unpleasing to look at. If someone has a pattern then everyone else should compliment those colors not create more patterns. I also suggest staying away from polyester tops and shirts with logos.

KHAKIS VS. JEANS if you want your images to be as bright as possible instead of your viewer's eyes first seeing your legs.

If you’re hoping for a more romantic style of shoot that includes “light” and “airy” colors, you can actually make outfit choices that will make your images turn out brighter, softer and extra photogenic! Here are some ingredients that go into creating a romantic styled shoot. It’s important to note that you do not need to choose all of these ingredients in order to have a light and airy style to your images but the more ingredients you include, the more romantic it will be:

NEUTRAL COLORS: Blushes, tans, light pinks, faint blues and light minty teals, creams, grays and whites will always result in more of a light and airy look in your images. These colors photograph softer and more romantically!

LONG, FLOWY SKIRTS/DRESSES: Dresses and skirts with feminine ruffles, multiple layers of fabric and the ability to blow and move in the wind will always photograph beautifully! You would be amazed at how impactful moving fabric softens an image.

KHAKIS VS. JEANS:If you really want your images to be as bright as possible, consider having your groom wear lighter pants instead of dark dress pants or dark jeans. Unless you're at the beach I highly suggest pants to make it look more masculine.
