How to dress for your Paris Photo session
What to wear? This is one of the most common questions Tim receives before a photo session. The goal here is to anticipate the choice of outfits (and to have some time if a shopping session is required before the trip) and to be able to be the best version of yourselves of your special day in Paris. The attention paid to the choice of the outfits is one of the point that makes the difference between nice and extraordinary photos.
Tastes and colours are of course something very personal, but a few tips can be very useful to make sure you have a good time and that we create beautiful photographs together.
The most important thing you need to think about is Harmony. This is the key and we are talking here about the harmony of colors, materials and clothing styles. Do tend to dress on the same scale & try and compliment each other. Your choices should depend on your personality, your wished and the celebrated occasion.
You can find a few examples on the images below illustrating different clothing styles. You will notice in each case the presence of a real overall coherence allowing a harmonious rendering.
Something with a little 'pop' always photographs well and helps you stand out, however dark colors are also very elegant.
Also, depending on your tastes, there’s no obligation to go for strong colors, something subtle can be very nice and completed with nice accessories.
I would advise to stay clear of heavy patterns.
Finally whilst looking as stylish as possible is of upmost importance do think about comfort.
We will find a Parisian café and use its restrooms in order for you to change outfits during the photo session.
Something very important is pay attention to details.
Are the clothes you've chosen well fitting?
Is that shirt & dress perfectly ironed? Are the shoes polished?
Are the accessories fitting with your outfits?
