The first questions I typically get asked during the planning stages of a clients portrait session is, “What do I wear?”. I wanted to take a quick second out to say, I understand and feel your pain. Even with my own portrait sessions, I have had to figure out what I was going to wear. I started with “what do I have in my closet?”. Then I took to Pinterest for some visual inspiration. I gathered up some of those visuals for you, see below. This Wardrobe Inspiration Guide is for everyone looking to have their photos taken during the fall. Some of the tips can certainly be applied to those having their portraits taken during other times of the year, but as we approach those times of the year, come back here to the blog and look for that seasons “Wardrobe Inspiration Guide”.
Feel free to wear what you’d like! This is only a basic guideline to help you out. I can also offer more personalized suggestions at your request.
I strongly encourage outfit changes and backups. You’re welcome to bring extra clothing for mixing and matching outfits. Go ahead and get creative! Bring your hats, cute shoes, jackets, jewelry, scarves, ties – anything goes. Have an amazing dress? Bring that too. Unsure about something? Bring it anyway!

As well as being a wildly fun and outgoing wedding and family photographer, I’ve also been fortunate enough to win some pretty rad photography awards both Nationally and Internationally. My images have been featured in well-known online and printed publications too. Woot woot!
Since being an “elder photographer”, I have also had several unique opportunities to speak on national stages while teaching and training up and coming wedding professionals within the industry. While that’s groovy and all, what makes me the proudest (and happiest) is being able to serve the rad couples that I work with.
It’s about getting you happily down the aisle. I’ll be there to capture the way you light up when you slip on your wedding dress or when you button up your suit jacket. I will be there the moment you see your love, standing there in all of their beauty. You’ll have every single magical moment captured, telling your perfect love story!
