How to Prepare – Engagement

Tips to help you prepare for your Tulsa engagement photography session

Outdoor sessions

Weather is unpredictable. Have a coat or sweater available for cool weather sessions. Touch-up make-up and hair spray or some other holding product is necessary in case of wind. Consider a snack before your session so you aren’t low on energy. Most of all bring your fun, playful side. Sessions with Resolusean are enjoyable. We will do whatever sparks our collective creative minds so there is an element of adventure in each engagement session.

What to wear

Avoid fluorescent colors!
Don’t wear matching outfits unless you dress alike on other days. A good option is to choose colors that are in a similar color family, i.e. both dressed in blues or both in earth tones. Avoid busy patterns or big logos. Bring several outfits to choose from, if in doubt. Dress in clothes that are comfortable and easy to move in.

We will be walking. If you are wearing sexy but hard-to-walk-in shoes, bring a pair that is comfortable for when we are moving. Choose outfits appropriate for the location. If we have scheduled a beach or lake session, bring a change of clothes, towel and water, as you will likely get sandy and possibly wet.

For those that are not quite at their ideal fighting weight (and I am one), here is some additional info. Although I will be posing, lighting and sometimes editing you to look your best, there are some things you should know to give you the best results. Ladies, be cautious of specific cuts of clothing. Few girls can pull off the look of the empire waist. In most cases, it will look like you are expecting so unless you know that you rock that look, you may want to go a different direction. While on the topic, white adds 10-20 pounds and black is slimming. A sleeveless top may not be your friend, if your arms are not toned. Gentlemen, trim hair, wherever it grows (ears and nose are often overlooked and you will see it in photos.) Pay attention to your fingernails. Unless you have been spending some time in the gym or have interesting tattoos, avoid sleeveless shirts. If you’re a skinny guy and want to look bigger, wear light colors.
