Tips for Choosing Your Engagement Photo Outfits

Tips for Choosing Your Engagement Photo Outfits

One of the most stressful parts of planning your engagement photos is choosing what to wear. We hope by following these tips for choosing your engagement photo outfits will help make the process just a little bit easier.

Plan Your Outfits Ahead of Time

For a stress-free engagement shoot, choose your outfits at least two weeks ahead of time. Let your photographer know what you plan to be wearing and ask for any suggestions. Try on the clothes and practice moving in them. You want to feel comfortable. The more comfortable you are, the more natural and relaxed your photos will look. In fact, many professional photographers suggest wearing clothes you already have and love rather than buying brand new ones.

Showcase Your Personal Style

If you want to escape to another world and go completely out of your comfort zone for your engagement photos, feel free! However, most people should stick to clothes that showcase your personal style. Do you and your future love hiking? Consider going up to a mountain and wearing more casual gear. Do you and your future spouse love dancing? Perhaps an indoor setting in formal wear is more appropriate. Take what you love and your own personal style and upgrade it slightly for your pictures.

If you and your future spouse have vastly different ideas, consider doing multiple outfits or multiple shoots so both of you are happy and can have pictures you cherish.

Coordinating Colors

Picking out a color scheme is one of the most difficult parts of choosing your outfits. Your best bet is to pick hues of the same color (shades of blue) with a neutral or complementary colors such as blue and orange or violet and yellow.

Choose Seasonal Accents

Incorporate some seasonal accents into your outfits. Umbrellas and rain jackets in the spring, a barefoot beach shoot in the summer, cozy scarves in the fall, and mittens in the winter are all good examples. It can help you make the most of an inclement weather situation.

Research Your Locations

Choosing where you want to take your photos can help determine what clothes to wear. Talk with your photographer about some of their favorite locations to shoot or ponder on a place that has special meaning for you and your future spouse.

Go Casual & Fancy

It can be hard to choose between engagement photo styles! Luckily, many photographers have packages that include multiple location and outfit options. So, pick an outfit that is casual and something more formal. You’ll be able to get the best of both worlds.

  • "One of the most beautiful, comforting doctrines of the Lord—one that brings immense peace, happiness, and unbounded joy—is that principle called eternal marriage. This doctrine means that a man and woman who love each other deeply, who have grown together through the trials, joys, sorrows, and happiness of a shared lifetime, can live beyond the veil together forever with their family who earn that blessing. That is not just an immensely satisfying dream; it is a reality." - Richard G. Scott
