How to prepare for your photoshoot

One of our most common questions is “what should we do to prepare for our photoshoot?” So we are here to tell you a few ways to make your session even better.

Your Clothes

What you wear is honestly one of the most important things. Dress for the vibe you want. Of course, you should feel comfortable in them. But make sure the color schemes are the vibe you want. Because our photos are more on the moody side – we suggest neutral colors.
We suggest avoiding patterns and bright colors. They tend to be distracting and can change the look we typically go for. Plus single-colored clothing or subtle patterns have a romantic effect!

If you still find it difficult to choose the perfect piece of clothing, we have created a Pinterest board here with inspiration for you: view our Pinterest.


If you are nervous, think of the photoshoot as a date! It is a very special and intimate time for you both so we want you to be relaxed. We want to see you laugh, dance, run, kiss, cuddle or fight. Just try to tune us out completely and move to the music or kiss as cheesy as you can.

We will give you a guide to help you prepare, but if we didn’t answer all your questions – please reach out!

You are welcome to visit the location in advance – or choose an environment that you are very familiar with. It is very helpful here if there are not too many people on site.

We often bring a knitted blanket for you to make yourself comfortable on. You are also welcome to organize a picnic, tell us your favorite music or make a campfire.
