As a wedding photographer, I understand that choosing the perfect outfit for your engagement session can be a daunting task. However, your engagement photos are a beautiful way to capture your love and excitement for each other before your big day. So, here are a few tips to help you pick the perfect outfit for your engagement session.
- Coordinate with your partner.
While you don't need to match exactly, it's important to coordinate with your partner. Choose outfits that complement each other in color and style. For example, if your partner is wearing a navy blue suit, you could wear a white dress with navy blue accessories.
- Choose timeless pieces.
Your engagement photos are something you'll treasure forever, so it's best to avoid trends that might not age well. Opt for classic pieces like a little black dress or a white shirt and jeans. You can also add a pop of color with accessories like a statement necklace or colorful shoes.
- Dress for the location.
Consider the location of your engagement session when choosing your outfit. If you're taking photos in a park or on the beach, wear comfortable shoes and flowy dresses that will move with the breeze. If you're taking photos in a city, choose more structured outfits like a blazer and jeans.
- Think about the season.
The season can also influence what you wear. If it's summertime, you might want to wear lighter fabrics like cotton or linen. In the winter, opt for cozy sweaters and scarves.
- Get your hair and makeup done.
Don't forget about hair and makeup! Getting your hair and makeup professionally done can make you feel more confident and camera-ready. Plus, it's a great excuse to pamper yourself before the big day.
Remember, your engagement photos should be a reflection of your personalities and your love for each other. So, have fun with your outfits, and don't be afraid to show off your personal style. I can't wait to capture your love on camera!
*NOTE: I will be responsible for selecting the locations for your engagement session, unless you have a specific location in mind. I will inform you of the chosen locations one or two days before the session.
