Love is in the air! Engagement season is upon us! And if you are so completely obsessed with all thangs wedding like I am, then you are probably either one of those newly engaged, or just as love story crazed as I am!! So in the spirit of this unofficial season, this week I am sharing 5 things you should definitely consider doing before your engagement session! Because this time in your life only happens once!!!
Clean your bling– You betta’ believe your photographer is going to want to get photos of that beautiful ring you just acquired! So to maximize sparkle, make sure it gets a good scrubbing so that it can really shine!
Freshen up your do– We have all seen the hilarious meme about how flyyyy you feel coming out of the salon! And that is exactly how I want you to feel in front of the camera! So a week or two before your session have your stylist give you a trim and color so you can strut your stuff like the newly engaged boss you are!!!
Find a makeup artist– Your makeup artist should be able to create a look that compliments you and your personality. Which means if you want to go all out with falsies, contouring, highlighter, the whole shebang, do it! Or if you want more of a natural soft makeup look, you do that to girl! That is the benefit of hiring a professional. They can design a look based on what you feel comfortable with. And if you feel like the whole makeup thing is not for you, I totally get it! I myself am someone who wears makeup rarely, and who has to watch youtube videos every single time she does, just to remember how the heck to put it on (that winged liner will be the death of me). But I also know it does feel amazing to have a professional create flawless makeup look for me instead of having to do it myself. It is one less thing that you have to stress about, and a great way to try out your makeup professional before your big day!
Drink lots of water/Get lots of rest– These sound like no big deal I know, but I am firm believer that a simple way to look refreshed and healthy is with hydration and no sleep deprivation! Plus, if your engagement session is with me, you know my level of energy. And if you are tired, I’m going to feel even more hyperactive than normal!
Plan a post session date– You are already going to be all gussied up, dressed to the nines, and feeling like a million bucks. So seriously, make a night of it! Go to dinner and a movie, get together with some friends, go out dancing, whatever makes you two happy! Because once again, this happy time only happens once, make the most of it while you can!!!!
