Raleigh, NC Photographer | {What to Wear?}

Having your photos taken can be a stressful experience, especially if you’re not sure what to expect or feel unprepared. One of the questions I get asked by most everyone is, “What should we wear for our photos?” In an effort to consolidate information, I thought I would put together a list of things I’ve found to be helpful.

  • Aim to coordinate but don’t dress to match. Don’t be afraid of color as it photographs nicely. Stay away from everyone wearing white or black and instead pick a few colors that go well together and and have everyone dress in those colors. Colors that are the same intensity look great together (ie, all jewel tones, all earth tones, etc.)
  • Your face should the lightest part of the image. Our eyes are drawn to the brightest part of the photo, and we want that to be your face! Try and stay away from wearing white, cream, and pastels.
  • Avoid graphics, text, and large prints. In addition to being distracting, they tend to look dated after a few years.
  • Dress for comfort as well as style. If a particular article of clothing only looks flattering from a certain angle, then avoid wearing that for a photo shoot. You’re going to be standing, sitting, kneeling, etc, so it’s best to wear something that you feel comfortable in that also makes you feel beautiful.
  • Don’t forget your accessories! Things like scarves, blazers, hats, etc, can really make photos fun!
