I did my hair and makeup trial the day we did a mini-engagement shoot. I am glad I did, because I got the chance to see how everything photographed, and I made changes to my look because of that! I ended up going to Mac and testing out different lipstick combos and added extensions to my hair. We weren’t planning to use the photos for anything, we did them as a way for our photographer to see our venue and to make sure that we could be comfortable in front of his camera. Probably not super helpful for you, but I thought I’d share my experience. Good luck!

kortizi0:  I think it depends on how you plan on styling your hair. If you plan on having a really elegant up-do or something else that looks formal I would change it. Engagement photos usually are more laid back, and I would find it strange. If you are simply planning to have your hair curled or something relatively simple, I don’t think it would be a big deal.

If you are having an updo you can see if they can take it out to leave your hair down for the pictures.  I had my makeup trial for my engagement pictures and went with a very natural look that ended up ok in the pictures, but definitely not what I wanted for the wedding.  Just had a second trial to pump it up and am very happy with the result.  So you may decide after seeing the pictures to do something different for the wedding anyway.

kortizi0:  I think the other bee’s suggestion to have them take it down for you afterwards is perfect!  Good Luck!
