Today, I am so excited to be featured on the blog of local wedding planner Tailored Occasions Event Planning and Design.  I'm honored to call Allyson a friend and a colleague - between designing her website, photographing her headshots, planning projects together like our proposal planning collaboration, and carpooling to our monthly Making Things Happen group in Chapel Hill, I've had the opportunity to get to know Allyson quite well over the past year.

Needless to say, when she asked, I was more than happy to write a guest blog for her readers about preparing for an engagement session. Check out my post, 7 Ways to Dress Your Best for an Engagement Session, here!

Many thanks to Allyson for featuring us!

closet inspiration :: greensboro engagement photographer

Every couple wants to arrive to their engagement session in style, but I've learned that my brides and grooms struggle most with what to wear for photographs when it's not a tux and a white Vera Wang. So today starts my first installment of "Closet Inspiration", where I'll be posting his+her outfit inspiration for engagement photos (or just everyday wear) along with tips for rockin' your engagement wardrobe.

Today's inspiration is all about winter... so many couples shy away from doing a winter photo session, and I hear time and time again that their outfit choices just aren't as cute in the colder months, but I beg to differ. The trick is layering... a button down blouse or a cute silk tank (which allow you to introduce a bold color or pattern without going overboard) looks lovely with cardigan or blazer and a thermal underneath a button-down shirt provides your guy's outfit with depth. And just because the fall colors have disappeared from the trees, don't shy away from warm colors like browns and golds... they provide a great neutral backdrop for bright colors and bold accessories.
