With our wealth of experience in engagement sessions and a unique approach to photography, we’re here to offer some unconventional yet confidence-backed advice. Your engagement photos should reflect your personality and style, so let’s dive into our favorite tips for outfit planning that ensures you’ll feel your absolute best on camera!

1. Wear What You Feel Confident In

  • Rule number one: Confidence is key. If you’re not comfortable in your outfit, it will show in your photos.
  • Don’t feel pressured to conform to a specific “engagement photo aesthetic” – be yourself!
  • Feeling like a million bucks is the goal; let that shine through in your clothing choices.

2. Wear Clothes That Move Well

  • Candid shots and movement go hand in hand in our photography style.
  • Choose outfits made of materials that flow gracefully to add an extra dimension to your photos.
  • Comfortable shoes are a must; you’ll be moving around a lot, and practical footwear ensures you can do so without worry.

3. What Colors Photograph Best?

  • While neutrals are a safe outfit bet, don’t feel restricted by them. Confidence trumps color choice.
  • Some outfit colors excel in specific settings – consider your location when picking outfits.
  • Be cautious with greens if your backdrop is lush with foliage to avoid blending in.

4. What About Patterns?

  • Avoid large or distracting patterns, which may not photograph well.
  • Small and tasteful patterns are fine but limit them to one person at a time.
  • Steer clear of closely spaced lines or stripes that can distort in photos.

5. How To Style Your Outfits

  • Coordinate outfits by starting with the more particular person’s attire and then building the other’s around it.
  • Use Pinterest for color palette inspiration and capturing the desired vibe.
  • Don’t forget about accessories – hats, custom jackets, or accent pieces can add flair and variety.

6. How Many Outfits Should We Plan For?

  • The number of outfits can vary, but two is a popular choice – one casual and one formal.
  • Consider changing outfits when changing locations to add diversity to your photos.
  • It’s better to have more options than you think you’ll need, just in case!
