Choose Well Fitting Clothes
As photographers we can easily pose you in a way that you will look absolutely stunning but we cannot change the fit of your clothes. We all look at our best when we wear well fitting clothes and for your photo shoot you should only bring clothes that fit like they were tailored for you.
Baggy shirts & pants will NOT make you look good!
If you decide to wear a suit, blazer or sports jacket, make sure it fits well.
New Always Trumps The Old
Can you recall that moment when you purchased that brand new shirt or jeans and wore it for the first time? You not only felt very handsome but also super confident too. And this is the second key to great portraits. The newer your clothes are, the better they will generally photograph. This is why all of those models you see in magazines and posters always wear brand new clothing.
While we never force anyone to buy new clothes just for a single portrait session, you might like to consider buying some new clothes if your wardrobe is lacking some good looking options. Remember a classic white shirt should look white and not like magnolia.
Dress to Impress
If we could only give you one piece of advice for your upcoming photo shoot with us it would be “dress to impress”. Think of those days when you were heading out with friends to have some great time in a more upscale venue. If your goal is to dress to impress then you are often on the right track as ultimately photo shoot is about capturing the most handsome version of you and your partner.
Since this photo shoot is all about you, you will get to choose what kind of images you want to do. The images could be more formal (e.g. suit), trendy or something that links more towards your lifestyle. Like for example if you are a big fan of sports, some of the images could have more Men’s Health style outlook.
Action Steps To Take Next
To get you started with the clothing we suggest you to do following steps:
- Analyse your wardrobe and try on clothes you might like to wear on the day of your photo shoot. Pay extra attention to how they fit – if they make you look larger than you really are, you should NOT bring those to your photo shoot.
- While you can do the whole photo shoot with just one outfit combination, we do suggest bringing three (3) outfit combinations with you. We can always mix and match different clothes on the day and create combinations that you might have never even thought of.
- When it comes to choosing clothes for you and your partner keep colours more neutral and toned down. Clothes with big branding and bright colours rarely create timeless portraits.
- Use the Clothing Cheat Sheet below to think of different outfit combinations you could create. Often we forget that with smaller items or garments we could easily elevate your look to the next level.
