“One of the most important tips that I tell my couples when it comes to engagement portraits is to remember to clean your ring! Many couples are busy thinking about their outfits, hair and makeup that they tend to overlook the engagement ring (which is an important part of their outfit). I have even had a bride leave her engagement ring at home. If you do not have time to take your ring in for a professional cleaning, gently and carefully wash your ring with soap and water. Make sure when you dry your ring to use a towel that will not leave lint. Photographers love taking photos of your ring and you will want it to shine and look it’s best!”

Couples outfits should compliment each other rather than match. I always tell my couples to wear something that they can easily move in and something they don’t mind getting wet! Most of my sessions end at the beach and it’s a bummer if the couple can’t play in the surf because they’re worried about their wardrobe.
I also tell them that the scenery can be anything from lava fields, tall cane grass and greenery, to the soft pastels that come with the sunset. Keeping that color scheme in mind, choosing an outfit that is versatile and subtle is the best choice for Maui portrait session! Often times couples will bring more than one outfit to accommodate location changes!
