Happy Thursday, friends! We have a HUGE announcement that we’re SO excited to share with you!
A few years ago, we realized something: choosing engagement session outfits was REALLY stressful on our brides! We wanted photography to be the most fun (and least stressful part!) of their entire wedding experience. Something to look forward to, not a source anxiety and second-guessing. We wanted their engagement sessions to be something they could look forward to with anticipation, excitement and happiness — not insecurity, doubt or stress!
So, we got to work! We sat down and crafted a thoughtful, intentional, almost 3,000 word email, EDUCATING and EMPOWERING our brides about what colors look best on camera, what silhouettes are most flattering on the body and so much more! The Engagement Session Style Guide was born — and our brides LOVED it! Over and over again, they told us the same thing, “Your style guide was a LIFE SAVER!”
The best part? It was a win-win. For us and for them! Because when our clients look their best, they feel confident, and when they feel confident, they look comfortable, and when that happens, it’s MAGIC in front of the camera.
For years, photographers in our workshops and coaching sessions have been asking us how we get our clients to wear what they wear to engagement sessions, and if we would ever make that information available for other photographers to be able to use.
Today, we’re SO excited to announce that we’re opening up ALL of our secrets and now YOU can have access to the exact words we’ve been sending our clients for years to empower and educate them into dressing like this:
We’ve never made anything like this available before, and we’re SO excited for other photographers to finally have the tools we use to educate and empower our couples to feel confident and beautiful at their engagement sessions. One of our biggest passions is helping other photographers love and serve their own clients better than ever before, and we know this guide is going to be such a game-changer for so many people.
