Ah, love. It’s awesome to be in, but not always the easiest thing to photograph. We’ve all seen those engagement pics on Pinterest — catalog-quality couples clad in windswept linen, smooching in the middle of some nameless, sun-drenched wheat field. Those photos are gorgeous, of course, but what if pastoral landscapes and Hamptons-worthy ensembles aren’t really your thing? For advice, we reached out to Ashley Batz, an SF photographer with a talent for photographing personalities, not just people. Ashley shared her top five tips for planning a photo session that feels authentic, no matter what you and your partner are into. Tips in tow, we set out with Ian, a Community Specialist here at the ‘Cloth, and his fiancée Amanda to see what magic we could create. Check out the tips for yourself, and see some of the awesome images we captured of our sharply dressed, RPG-loving models.
P.S. Love Amanda’s look? Recreate it! The ModStylists helped her choose our What Motors Most Jacket, the Summer Night Stroll Dress in Red, the Navigating the Neighborhood Flat in Black, the Friend or Foal Necklace, and the Through the Five Boroughs Scarf.
