Stylist, etc for Engagement Photos?
Posted: Jan 17, 2010 8:46 PM

I've been finding these incredible engagement photos and I can't help but wonder if these couples hire hair stylists/wardrobe people/makeup artists and someone to create a "scene". I see them so often now that I can't imagine that ALL these couples go to so much great detail!

For example, this couple used EAMES chairs and she is wearing a $450 Betsey Johnson dress....

And if you scroll down and look at another one of the couples, you'll see that they re-created a W magazine photo shoot. The props! The house! The clothes! shoes! hair! makeup! accessories! furniture! ahhh!! I love it all!

So, let's say I wanted my engagement photos like this - are there photographers who can arrange all this? Do these couples seek out all these people on their own? Tell me!

Try looking for someone who does direction, sometimes photographers can do it all, sometimes you can get 1 person to do the hair, make-up and wardrobe, but sweetheart, a 450.00 Betsey would much much cheaper than hiring all of these people, a commercial stylists can be pricey and thats not even including anything else. I live up in Canada so I cant give you any suggestions but try looking for a MUA, they usually can do the hair and styling as well and then your photog can make the set, just be specific.
