Wedding Wednesday: Save the Date Photo Tips

Tips for your engagement or save the date photos
1. Do your research before hiring a photographer, The Knot helped me so much!
2. Pick a location that has meaning and has a nice background to shoot at.
3. Stay away from trendy pieces, stick with a classic outfit that you can look back at and love.
4. Give yourself a clean manicure, or get one done.
5. Have your ring professional cleaned.

Chautauqua is one of our favorite places to hike is Boulder, so we decided it would be the perfect place to take our save the dates photos.  As far as deciding on what to wear, I went with what I knew and loved.  Navy is a classic and it's also one of our wedding colors, the plaid scarf is a classic that you can never go wrong with.  Some people like to change outfits and initially that was my plan, but the location we picked was not an easy spot to get to, so we went with one outfit, I love how it kept a consistent feel throughout all of our shots.

We were so lucky to find our photographer, Josh Hall.  He recently moved to Colorado from Louisiana and we found him just in time, his schedule is filling up quickly.

Thanks for reading, happy hump day!
