The style of photography they want is really important, you have to have a clear vision of what you want and communicate it to your photographer that way we can advise you on the things you may need to get it done and please trust us.
For example, I had a couple that didn't take the time to consult their outfits with me and what end up happening is that she brought a dressy summery dress and he brought shorts and a tshirt, well needless to say they didn't like the feel of the photos because the outfits and colors clashed.
