Here are a few basic rules for planning your wardrobe for Maui beach photography.
*Wear something comfortable that you can move in and if you are planning on being on the beach, something you don’t mind getting a
little ocean water and sand on!
*Avoid loud patterns and prints or large logos, these sometimes look strange in pictures (especially stripes) and logos will make your pictures look dated quicker as brands and trends change quickly.
*YOU DONT ALL HAVE TO WEAR THE SAME COLOR think COORDINATE rather than MATCH. When you decorate a room, you don’t use the same color for everything, you choose pieces that work well together while at the same time they all bring something different to the room. People are the same way, everyone has their own personality and style and your clothing for your portraits should show off the personality of the people in the photo. So rather than making everyone wear the same color, find a palette of colors that all work well together and the let each person express their individuality.
*My favorite colors on the beach are blues, pinks, greens & white.
*Try a neutral base like khaki pants for the guys then throw in splashes of color with tops, dresses or jewelry on you. 80% of clients wear white. It can look beautiful or unflatering depending on the person. Also, think pastels. They are a nice color splash verses strong colors.
