I was so nervous about my engagement session, but ended up having a blast.  Our pics ended up getting featured on a major wedding blog: http://www.elizabethannedesigns.com/blog/2012/10/11/cooking-at-home-engagement-session/

I LOVED having an activity to do.  But overall here are my tips:

-have an activity to do, even if its just throwing a frisbee at a local park, or a picnic.  It will help you and your FH relax. 

-Choose bolder clothing than you would wear in real life.  Bright colors and accessories look good on people.

-Try to coordinate with your FH.  This doesn’t mean matching, but knowing that they will look good together.  You can see we had a bright set of outfits and a more subdued natural set (there was another dress in there, but it didn’t get featured)

-Have a spare, cute umbrella! I was so bummed when it was rainy, but then we got some cute shots (some in puddles) b/c I borrowed my friends umbrella that went with the theme.

-As for makeup, I way OVERDID my makeup and you can HARDLY tell! I never wear foundation, powder, eye shadow– only blush and mascara.  I actually bought makeup and spray tan for my legs, and I still ended up looking way more natural.  My FH even commented on how much makeup I was wearing, but it looks like nothing in the pics. 

-Don’t be afraid to speak up if you spy a good shot.  I suggested varioius backgrounds like this set of pallets and it ended up being a really cute photo!

Good luck- but guessing by the date they may have already happened? Hopefully some other bees can use this advice ๐Ÿ™‚
