Layering to Create Different Looks For Your Engagement Session


Layering to Create Different Looks For Your Engagement Session

Ashley Newman Photography

Laura Kate and Blake are literally the sweetest couple. They tackled the southern heat and made the most of their session by adding layers.

It's so hot!!! I know I know- we live in The South, but it's just miserable. And it's far from over. Laura Kate wanted more than one look, but didn't want to fuss with changing (or peeling sweaty clothes off in the summer heat). So we got smarter than the heat. Here is how they made it happen. 

Tips for layering to vary your photos

  • Choose light neutrals- they go with everything and will help keep you cool

  • If you have an outfit that has sleeves, consider rolling them or unrolling them to create different looks (I would start with them unrolled)

  • Utilize an undershirt- open up your button up and BAM! A whole new look

  • Add a scarf, hat or vest

  • Consider shoes on and off!

Even though it was hot, we rolled up our pants and really made it fun. This family's love pours out through the images here and tells a story of devotion and what it means to love with your whole heart. A little about their story- cause after all, this is all about them! #takingtaylor

On a Tuesday night, Blake and Jake got down on one knee to publicly offer Laura Kate their hearts. They knew she made them complete and together they are a family. Laura Kate of course said yes! "It was the best decision I have ever made, because not only do I now have the love of my life, I have a bonus love that could never be defined."

Hugs, snuggles, adventure, laugher, and so much love. Laura Kate and Blake purchased my Dreamer's Collection along with an engagement session, so I will be seeing them again very soon when they become husband and wife!
I would say this family nailed it- what is your favorite way to layer?
