Hey there, lovebirds! As a photographer capturing beautiful moments in Newfoundland along the enchanting East Coast of Canada, specifically in stunning locations like St. John’s and Cape Spear, I’ve got some insider tips to help you plan the perfect outfit for your coastal couples photoshoot. Get ready to channel your inner coastal chic and create stunning memories together against these breathtaking backdrops. Let’s dive right in!
- Embrace the Coastal Color Palette Inspired by St. John’s:
Think about the colours that reflect the coastal vibes of St. John’s and it’s vibrant surroundings. Opt for soft pastels reminiscent of the colourful row houses, dreamy blues inspired by the ocean, sandy neutrals that mirror the beaches, and pops of vibrant hues found in the local flora. These colors will not only complement the stunning scenery of St. John’s but also create a harmonious blend with the natural elements around you.
- Flowy Fabrics for Ocean Breezes at Cobbler’s Path:
Coastal photoshoots, like ones at Cobbler’s Path or Middle Cove Beach, often involve a gentle ocean breeze. Embrace this natural element by choosing flowy fabrics that dance with the wind. Light, airy dresses for the ladies and linen shirts or loose shirts for the gents can add a touch of elegance and movement to your photographs, perfectly complementing the ethereal landscapes of Newfoundland & Labrador.
- Avoid Busy Patterns and Large Logos: Let Your Love Take the Spotlight
When planning your outfit for a couples photoshoot, it’s best to avoid busy patterns and large logos. Why? Because these elements can be visually distracting and take attention away from the true focus of the photoshoot: your love and connection. Opting for simple and more understated patterns or solid colours allows your emotions and genuine expressions to shine through without any distractions. Remember, the purpose of the photoshoot is to capture the essence of your relationship, and keeping the focus on each other will result in more intimate and heartfelt photographs.
- Layers for Coastal Comfort in Newfoundland:
Newfoundland’s coastal weather can be unpredictable, so it’s always a good idea to dress in layers. This allows you to adapt to any temperature changes during your photoshoot at Signal Hill, Cape Spear, Cobbler’s Path or anywhere else in our unpredictable province or Newfoundland and Labrador. Consider layering with light jackets, cardigans, or scarves that can easily be added or removed as needed. These layers not only provide comfort but also add texture and depth to your outfits, creating visually interesting photographs against the rugged coastal backdrop.
- Shoes Made for Coastal Adventures:
While heels and dress shoes have their place, consider footwear that suits the coastal terrain of Newfoundland and Labrador. Opt for your Blundstones, or hiking boots if we’re going in the woods, you can always bring your flats or sandals to change into, or even embrace the freedom of going barefoot for beach shoots. This choice allows you to explore the sandy shores, climb rocky cliffs, and stroll along the breathtaking landscapes with ease. I’ll be sure to capture those moments of natural connection as you enjoy the coastal adventures together.
With these five tips, you’re well on your way to creating a coastal chic look for your couples photoshoot on the East Coast of Canada. Remember to feel comfortable, relaxed, and authentically you as you showcase your love against the backdrop of St. John’s vibrant streets or the picturesque serenity of Cape Spear. Let’s capture those magical moments against the breathtaking coastal landscapes, creating memories that will last a lifetime!
