Welcome to the MKC Photography Graduate Experience!
I'm SO excited about your upoming graduation session with MKC Photography and that you are officially an #mkcphotograd!!! AH!!! Below is lots of information regarding hair and makeup, outfit selection, what to expect at your session, and more, Please read it thoroughly! You'll find all the frequently asked questions below, and if there's anything else I can answer, please let me know!
Your session is going to begin at a pre-determined location based on our correspondent planning. We will meet there approximately 10 minutes before we plan to start shooting so that I can help you get comfy and we can plan out props, where to throw confetti (my favorite part) and all that good stuff! Please do everything you can to be on time, if not a few minutes early. As a natural light photographer, your grad session is scheduled around the time lighting is at it's prettiest. Once the sun is set or too high in the sky, it starts to really affect your photos. Being late also affects the length of your session, and I want to spend as much time with you as I can to capture some truly stunning images! If you are more that 30 minutes late to your session, we will need to reschedule to my earliest availability (which is usually a month or so away!).
Head on below for some outfit tips and some FAQs!
So what do I wear?
1. Be Comfortable!
First off, wear what makes you feel beautiful! I recommend getting your outfit together a least a month before your photos so you have plenty of time to try on and decide what makes you feel amazing!
Second, be cautious about your shoes! We do a fair amount of walking, so if they aren't great for that, bring along a comfy change of shoes or rethink the original pair!
Lastly, bring additional weather-related comforts, If it's hot, PLEASE bring some water with you! If it's cold, bring that cozy jacket!
2. Play with Color!
We all love a good black dress, but to be real, they blend in with the black graduation robes and it makes me sad! That being said, exploring color and pieces that pop again your graduation regalia is always a fun idea! Most girls choose either white or crimson for their photos (understandably, they're stunning!), and some brave souls go for pastels! I'll tell ya, one of my favorite grad outfits was this pink floral number. It photographed beautifully!
Long story short, wear what you like and be adventurous in your choices!
3. Textures? Please!
Textures are a fun way to add a little pizzazz to your graduation photos while not taking away from your stunning face! I love recommending textures to add a little pop against a grad robe.
You can also play with some small patterns like thin stripes or small polka dots, but I would warn against large and distracting patterns!
