I am so excited to launch a new blog series here at Ashley Slater Photography where I can share engagement session style, trends, tips and more! Engagement sessions are always so much fun for me and I absolutely recommend them (and include them!) in all my wedding packages. If you want to read my in-depth reasons you can do that here, but to summarize: I don't want your wedding day to be the first day we work together (no pressure, right?!) and I also love using the engagement session time to see how you photograph and how your personality naturally plays to the camera.
I also really love that an engagement session can speak to your style as a couple. Adventurous? Let's go swimming in Lake Michigan for part of your session. Fun-loving? Let's grab some ice cream and hop around the city. Romantic? Let's put on a tulle skirt, suit and get super dreamy. That brings me to this edition of engagement session style: tulle skirts! You can take one look at my website and you know that classic romance is one of my very favorite things. I love adding that element of timelessness by encouraging my couples to pull out all the stops and really get fancy for part of their sessions. As a wedding film photographer, the way this medium captures movement and color is beyond words. Film almost begs for textures that move, breathing life into photos. Just take a look at some of my favorite tulle inspiration and you'll see what I mean...
As you can see, a tulle skirt can be worn in a variety of ways to exude different moods. I love the black mini with the classic car and how it is just the right amount of edgy. I also love the whimsy of the lavender skirt with the floral element. And sunset on the beach in blush pink? Yes, please. Below are some of my favorite skirts and where to get them... if you have a session coming up with my shoot me an e-mail and we can brainstorm your engagement session vision together!
