My Three Favorite Engagement Session Client Outfits

One of the things I KNOW my brides stress out a lot over is what to wear to their engagement session. They want to dress the perfect part, a balanced, cohesive look that is both bohemian and urban, both casual and close. My best tip or recommendation when choosing your outfits is that you should dress nicer than you do every day. But whether that means a nice sweater for each of you and some chunky jewelry or a full-on boho vibe with open weave cardigan and Chacos, it’s totally up to you!

Since I know some people are looking for a little more direction than that, today I decided to share some of my fool-proof, always-a-winner engagement outfit combinations in case you simply need examples to look off of as you’re making your outfit choices.


The Just Be You

This is where you pick an outfit entirely surrounding your vibe as a couple. It’s probably a bit more laid-back, but it’s still worth grabbing a couple new pieces to feel fancy. But the good news is that these new pieces are totally functional because they’ll fit nicely into the rest of your wardrobe!

The Date Night Classic

This is where you keep it comfortable, by still wearing pants, but you step up your game from what you’d normally wear. Pretend that your boy toy is taking you to a nice dinner, and you want to look stunning, but you’re not committed enough to wear the heals and a dress. Dress him in a sweater or a button up, and wear a bit of jewelry.

The Photographer’s Choice

I love it when my clients are as ready as I am to go adventuring up a mountain or down in a valley by a lake, and the energy behind the eyes of the couple is really apparent when you look at those types of engagement photos. My choice for you is to wear something that you ROCK and feel so confident in, but also allows us to have the adventure of a lifetime as we capture your love. That probably doesn’t look like a dress, and it probably doesn’t look like a suit for your man.

let’s plan an adventure together!

7 Fall Traditions I Never Miss

Weather your ideal season encourages skinny dipping, calls for hibernation under a knitted blanket, or is even one where “all you need is a light jacket” (really hoping you know which movie I am referencing), there is much to look forward to year round. So, I hope that you will take advantage of some of my never-miss fall traditions. I promise that they will make even you summer-mourners fully embrace the splendor that is, “fall.”

 
7-Fall-Traditions-I-Never-Miss.png
 

1. Pumpkin Patch - With so much goodness packed into one outing, a trip to the pumpkin patch makes it to the tippy-top of my fall to-do list. It is norm for most venues to include amenities such as corn mazes, hayrides, slides, farm animals, & cheap by-the-pound pumpkin prices. The inexpensive admission prices further add to the draw. So, whether you’re out with your girlfriends, on a cutesy seasonal date, or making memories with your young family, a trip to the pumpkin patch is a sure win.

2. Apple Picking - Half of fall’s allure revolves around the all-spice added into every baked treat. And when said “baked-treat” is fresh from the tree, your taste buds are sure to sing. So be sure to add apple picking to your weekend to-do list. Your stomach & family photo album (because is there anything more picturesque than an apple orchard?) will thank you.

3. Bonfire - When a certain refreshing crispness graces the air, I know that autumn has arrived. I love that cool feeling whispering against my skin. That feeling is amplified by the warmth of a bonfire glowing on your face. Add nature’s brilliant fall hues, the smokey air (am I the only one who loves the smell of embers?), a marshmallow in your mouth, and cuddling with someone cute? There really is nothing better.

4. Haunted House - It nearly takes me a whole year for my heart to stop thudding & to replenish my courage, but when the year-mark rolls around, there is no question as to weather I will go again. Haunted houses are exhilarating, comical, and dang fun. And boys, if you’re looking for an excuse to have a girl cling to your hand, look no further.

5. Pumpkin Treats - Need I say more? Throw some chocolate chips into the mix, and I swear the stars align.

6. Pumpkin Carving - Embrace the mess; the slime & gore is all part of the fun! For some added spirit, crank up your favorite Halloween classic. Then with a spoon in one hand, and knife in the other, you are fully equipped to create your doorstep’s newest accessory.

7. Hammocking - If you’re up for adding a little granola into your life, then this is for you! The serenity of the sunlight peeking through those brilliant fall leaves is unbeatable, making the fall my favorite time to hammock

let’s plan an adventure together!

Morgan + Kody Engagements | Logan, Utah Engagement Photographer

Kody and I met at the Ogden LDS institute when we were both there by ourselves and needed someone to sit by! He was so sweet but didn’t get my phone number until later that week at an institute dance. We dated for a few months long distance while he was living in Wyoming for work. He proposed on the 4th of July while we were sitting in the back of his truck watching fireworks!
