Dressing Recommendations for Your Photoshoot Experience in Copenhagen

When selecting your attire, lean towards solid, neutral, and earthy tones. These colors blend seamlessly with Copenhagen’s charming backdrop, allowing you to stand out without overwhelming the scenery.


Steer clear of clothing with distracting patterns or logos that may draw attention away from you and your surroundings. Opt for simple, timeless pieces that complement your natural beauty and the city’s picturesque landscapes.


For couples or group sessions, consider coordinating colors rather than matching outfits. Choose complementary or contrasting hues to add visual interest and depth to your photoshoot.


Copenhagen experiences distinct seasons, each offering unique opportunities for stunning photos. In spring and summer, opt for breathable fabrics and light layers. Embrace cozy sweaters and scarves for autumn shoots, and bundle up in stylish coats and hats for winter sessions.

Prepare for Rainy Days!

As Copenhagen’s weather can be unpredictable, I usually provide a large transparent umbrella for couples during rainy photoshoots. Embrace the romantic atmosphere created by soft rainfall while staying dry and comfortable, or go all in and dance under the rain!
