Hey y’all, I’m Izzy, owner and lead photographer at Izzy + Co. I’m a sassy red head who loves thrifting, iced coffee and the color pink. (can you tell?) Here you will find the latest weddings and portrait sessions plus inspiration and tips so grab a cocktail + peruse the pretty!
Stef and Daniel celebrated their engagement with a romantic Tybee Island engagement session. Tybee has some of the most beautiful sunsets, so it was so much fun being their engagement photographer! I love when clients bring props for our shoots and I was so impressed by the flower installation Stef’s mom made. Stef loved the floral arches she saw on Pinterest, so her mom stepped in and created one filled with greenery and magnolia leaves. This sweet couple gets married later this fall at Bluff Creek Stables, and I can’t wait to see what DIY projects they create for it!
Engagement Outfit Tips
As an engagement photographer, I often get asked what outfit you should wear to your engagement shoot. So I’ve gathered some tips for your engagement shoot outfits!
I always suggest sticking to a neutral or pastel color palette for both of you. This way, the images are timeless and match your home décor (year after year!) Stef wore a dusty nude gown, that glowed in the sunset. And don’t forget about your spouse! Daniel wore a soft blue button down, and dark pants, for a timeless look.
Flowy is wonderful! Flowy dresses always photograph amazing, especially during outdoor sessions, like on the beach. It feels extra romantic and makes some beautiful shots.
Consider the fit. This is especially important for guys! Make sure your outfit fits correctly, so you are comfortable and can move around. Baggy suits on guys are not flattering, so make sure it is tailored if you are wearing one.
Wear the same “dressiness” as your partner. If one person is wearing a dress and heels, then make sure the other is dressed appropriately (so no flip flops!)
I love a pattern, but It’s also important to balance it in your outfit. If one person is wearing a pattern, keep the other neutral to compliment it. Too many patterns can get too busy, and you want these pictures to be timeless. They will be gracing the walls of your house for many years to come!
