What to wear – Style Guide

1. Colour Palette

Pick a palette of 3-4 colours. Let this be your starting place. Think in terms of tones: blue tones, earth tones, neutrals, pastels, etc. Everyone in the family can express their own sense of style within the chosen colour palette, and the whole group will coordinate beautifully.

2. Don’t match – Coordinate

Coordinate but don’t match. Sometimes it’s easiest to start with picking one family members outfit and pull colours from their outfit to dress and layer everyone else. Layering can make a huge difference in tying in all the colours.

3. Use solid colours

Keep it simple and clean. I like the focus to be on the emotion and connection of the couple or family. Subdued colours, solids, and muted prints work well for that. Skip logos, large patterns and words (on t-shirts) as they draw the eye away from what matters most – the connection.

4. Add a pop of colour

Don’t be afraid of a little colour! You don’t have to go overboard, but picking up bold colors from a more subtle outfit for a pop of colour can look amazing. For example, if dad is wearing a plaid shirt, draw one colour from it and have one child wear a pop of that colour.

5. Fit your style to your location

Always keep your session location in mind when choosing your outfit. If your session is happening in a city setting, dress up a bit with a pair of cute heels and a fancier dress than you’d normally wear to match the bustling vibe of the city. If you’ve selected a more natural environment, choose something a bit more casual such as a maxi dress and opt for casual footwear like flat sandals or boots.

6. Dress up

Don’t be afraid to dress up in formal clothes, especially for an engagement session. It’s not only fun, but it’s something different than the everyday and professional photographs can definitely be considered a special occasion!

7. Don’t forget about the shoes

If you’re not the type whom likes being barefoot, be sure to keep your footwear in mind. Nothing will throw your look off more than a ratty old pair of shoes.

8. Let hair move

I love leaving longer hair down to showcase movement. Wind and breeze is not a bad thing and perfectly kept hair will rarely happen. Many famous people pay for expensive wind machines and if it is windy on the day of your session Mother Nature is giving us one heck of a deal!

9. Accessorize

Accessorize & give your photographs that needed punch! They lend pops of colour, personality, and interest. Everybody wears them well and they work for all ages.”

10. Be comfortable

My work is based on movement and playful behavior. Pick clothes that will let you run freely and be blissfully carefree! Maxi dresses are my number one fave for the ladies if you want comfort and style.

Benefits of a micro wedding/elopement: FREEDOM

 The FREEDOM to throw out that rule book and let your wedding represent who you truly are. The FREEDOM to pick a fun, unique location that may not be accessible for larger events. The FREEDOM to write your own vows and express how you truly feel about your partner in a more intimate setting. The FREEDOM to take your time and enjoy the day with your favourite person and closest loved ones. The FREEDOM to do it your way.

Why elopements rock…

It’s about stripping back your wedding to just the most important things, the things that matter.

Sarah Rolles Photography - Saskatchewan elopement photographer
  • Elopements are 100% focused on your love story.
  • You get to spend the whole day with your favourite person & partner
  • It’s an opportunity to experience a more personal & intimate ceremony.
  • No family drama – You can still share the day with a small group of your closest friends & family or just keep it between the two of you – it’s up to you.
  • Less stress involved to plan.
  • Budget friendly, which means more funds for the honeymoon.
  • You can choose & combine traditions or discard them altogether.
  • More freedom with your itinerary.
  • Unique locations inaccessible to larger weddings will be open to you.
  • Better photo opportunities – If you want sunrise or sunset photos at a unique location you can do it.

To sum it up you get to gather with just your closest loved ones, marry your soul mate in an intimate and personalized ceremony, and then adventure through your beautiful surroundings for amazing photos that celebrate your love.

You can be wild, you can be free, you can be you!

REFERRAL PROGRAM – Share the Love

Share The Love

I’m calling all current and past clients or even just admirers of my work!

Getting a referral from a client is THE greatest compliment. Without all of my wonderful clients’ endorsements my business wouldn’t be where it is today.

As a thank you to all of my amazing clients for sharing their experiences with friends and family, I have created an exciting new referral program!

Here’s how it works…

  1. If you have a friend or family member that gives me the honour of photographing them, I will give you a free mini session (15 min session and 5 images) that you are free to cash in and book within 6 months that the referral / booking is made.
  2. Those who are referred whom contact me and book will receive 15 %  off any wedding photo package or regular photo session.

A few guidelines to be aware of…

  • Make sure anyone that you refer mentions your name in their email when they inquire and or book.
  • The 15% discount for referrals is not available for use on mini session events/dates. It is only valid on regular priced sessions and or wedding packages.
  • Referral credits cannot be applied to past bookings.
  • Mini sessions, rewarded to past clients, family and friends for their successful referral, will only be held in Saskatoon unless you can catch me when I am passing through your area.
