Hey brides and grooms (and wedding fans). We’ve got a fun shoot for you today from Missy Mabel Photography. If you’re lucky enough to be engaged this summer, it’s a great idea to get your engagement photos done when it’s sunny, warm and easy to access gorgeous spots like Sparks Lake.
A few tips from our editorial director on booking a summer E-session:
- Schedule your shoot on a weekday: Your photographer is more likely to be fresh, available and able to shoot your engagement photos on a weekday during summer since they work on weekends. Also, you’ll avoid weekend crowds at Bend’s best vistas.
- Hair and Makeup: Don’t forget to book a hair and makeup artist. You can schedule your hair and makeup trial for the same day as your shoot and kill two birds with one stone. If you want a completely different look, book extra time for your makeup artist to do a second hairstyle. They are also less likely to be booked during the week.
- Sunrise or Sunset: Bend isn’t famous for it’s cloud cover. Harsh sunlight creates shadows on the face which don’t make people look their best. Choose a sunrise or sunset time for your shoot to make sure you have the best lighting.
