What to wear to your Love Story Photography session

With my Love Story Photography sessions, I have a general rule of one outfit per hour… some of my couples opt for one hour, whereas others opt for 3 and I’ve had the question of “What should I wear?” pop up a few times.

Personally, I love the beachy style, free flowing skirts and loose clothing.. to me that all just adds to the relaxed chilled vibe of holidaying on a tropical Thai island ­čÖé Of course what you wear also depends on where your session is going to be.

Here are my main tips:

  1. Stay away from matching tops + bottoms, instead try to coordinate… think mix and match!
  2. Wear something you feel comfortable in.
  3. If possible, reflect you personalities in your outfits.
  4. Choose your outfits to suit the location: for the beach you can go all casual + fun, where as at the resort you can be a bit more formal if you want.


Take a look below at what some of my previous clients have chosen to wear!


Effortless + Fun

I feel like Rhea + Gavin turned up in what they ually wear at home on a weekend od going out to meet friends, and it was perfect for photos because they looked so relaxed + happy!



Smart + formal

Charlotte + Thomas had their Love Story Session at the Inter Continental, so they went with a more formal outfit.




Casual + laid back

Carmen + Kenneth went for a fun laid back look which was perfect for their surroundings!





Soft + Beachy

Sandy + Barry went for a soft pastel beachy style and colour coordinated a little bit, I thought they looked super cute!

Fun Beach Casual

Selena + Michael went for something comfy + fun, which I loved… Selena’s maxi dress flew in the wind and Michael’s t-shirt and shorts just complemented her outfit perfectly.
