What’s more dashing than a man in a suit? How about the love of your life in a suit! There’s nothing classier than a well-fitting suit. That’s why the red carpet is flooded with men in tailored suits – because it looks so good on camera! Suit jackets are designed very strategically to flatter the male figure: broad shoulders and a narrow waist.
When selecting a suit for photos, the most crucial part isn’t the price. It’s the fit. A suit jacket that fits snugly (but not too tight) and pants that are the correct length are most flattering on camera. Just like high heels make women look taller than they are, bunched up fabric stacked on top of a man’s shoes makes him look physically shorter than he really is. If you already have a suit that you like and want to wear at your session, make sure to try it on a few weeks beforehand (with the shoes you’ll be wearing), so you have time to make alterations if needed.
If you don’t have a suit, now’s the perfect time to invest in something you’ll wear for the rest of your life! The best part? It’s a lot less expensive than you might think! While custom suits can cost thousands of dollars, some of the most well-known brands sell really nice off-the-rack suits for a fraction of the price that can be made to fit with a few alterations from a good tailor like a glove.
We recommend suits for all men at all sessions! Not only do they add some pizazz to your session, but they also complement your bride’s outfit the best. Suits and dresses just look so romantic together. So when you’re styling your session, opt for a suit or slacks and a dress shirt. You won’t regret it!
