Bride Tip: What to Wear for Engagement Photos

“What should I wear?” is such a common question people ask when preparing for an engagement session or any session. Here’s a simple guide to help you plan for your next shoot!

  1. Dress for the season

    If it’s fall or winter, wear things that go with the season like boots, jackets, scarves or beanies. Wear the right colors for the season too! Hot pink and fall leaves do NOT go well together.

    For spring and summer, wear a dress and sandals, or make it casual with burks, skinny jeans, and a flowy shirt. Lighter colors go great with the flowers, green trees, and light blue skies.

  2. Don’t go crazy with patterns

    Patterns are great, but when there are several patterns going on in one photo, it can be a little much. If you wear plaid or floral patterns, have your partner wear something more solid.

  3. Coordinate outfits

    Wear colors that compliment each other, but don’t match and wear the same colors. Neutrals are fabulous. Mix it up by wearing jackets, hats, or dresses, but don’t have too many of the same thing. Again, you want to compliment each other’s outfits, not be the same!

  4. Wear something comfy and that you can move in

    During my shoots, I like to have my clients moving around, running, jumping, dancing, and all the things. Wear things that are comfy so you can be moving around, and wear things that make you feel confident so that you love your photos.

Below are a few ideas for coordinating outfits!
