I'm a Jersey girl living in the Colorado mountains- I'm a sucker for glowly light and deep conversations over a glass of whiskey . . .

Meet Ashley

One of the main questions clients ask me is “What do I wear?”  If you are wondering what looks good, what doesn’t, if you should match outfits, or change between your session . . . you are not alone. The truth is what you wear will affect how your photos turn out.

If you look around my website, you can see my shooting and editing style is bright, airy, warm, true to life, and joyful, your outfit choices will help create that vibe!

My goal as your photographer is to make your whole experience as fun and comfortable as possible. That being said, wearing what you feel most confident in, is so important. Everyone has a few ‘go-to’ outfits that they feel their best in, start there and follow these tips as a frame work when making your final choices.

What photographs well:

  • Neutrals (white, ivory, tan, grey, beige, etc..)
  • Soft colors, blue, peach, pink, mint etc
  • Different colors and shades for shirts and pants
  • Solids or light florals; subtle patterns
  • Layering simple accessories to add visual interest
  • Men-Matching belt and shoes
  • Pop’s of color to coordinate with either your surroundings or others in the photos.

What doesn’t photograph well:

  • Graphic tees
  • Sweatshirts
  • Busy patterns
  • Identical matching outfits
  • All black or dark colors
  • All white shirts
  • Soiled, stained, and unintentionally ripped clothing
  • Everyday sneakers

[If you prefer to dress in darker clothes, try adding accents with dark blue (think pants, scarves) , black (think shoes/belts) ,etc… rather than the whole choosing an entire dark outfit]

Pro Tip: Don’t be afraid to dress up a little! Business casual looks natural and timeless!

Remember, these are just basic recommendations and guidelines. This photo session is about you! I want you to feel like you! I want you be comfortable! I want you to feel beautiful! So, let your outfit choices reflect that!

This darker dress works well with the softer backdrop and because Tim’s neutral clothing compliments hers without being too heavy
Their outfits compliment each other perfectly. Pulling in colors from their scenery, subtle pattern that ads visual interest without being too busy.
This family did an incredible job with their outfit coordination! As soon as they showed up to their session, I knew I was going to be using them as an example! Things to note that made this work so well: They chose a color palette which included shades of 4 different colors: Tan, Brown, Ivory, & Blue. Neutrals were their main color which helped break up their ‘pop’ of different shades of blue. Each couple made sure not to wear the same exact color which makes it more visually appealing. Not all the men dark jeans – that can turn out heavy and dark. When photographing I always break up colors the best I can so it flows naturally.
