What to Wear for your Engagement Photos

Congrats on being engaged! You probably have a hundred ideas going through your mind about wedding planning, but first things first: engagement photos! You must be really stoked to marry your love and best friend, and now is the time to celebrate your engagement with your babe and document this special moment in your lives!

You’ve probably already thought about getting engagement photos done soon after the proposal. This may be the first time you two have ever taken professional photos together, which can be a little nerve-wrecking, but have no fear, I am here to help you get ready for your session! Don’t worry, engagement photos are meant to be fun, spontaneous and special. You get to go on a fun date where you have a romantic picnic, walk on the beach, dancing with each other, and just be madly in love with one another while your photographer captures those precious moments for you. If you’re wondering what to wear for your engagement photos, I’ve got you covered with some outfit inspiration for both you and your babe, and a few tips to help you prepare for your session.

Engagement Photos
  1. Wear Comfortable Clothes

    Your confidence will shine through in photos, but you have to make sure you both wear comfortable clothes that make you feel like you. If you want to do more than one outfit for your engagement session, be sure that each outfit is comfortable for the both of you so you can enjoy your time together and not feel awkward because your clothes are uncomfortable.

  2. Complement Each Other Instead of Matching

    Complementing your babe’s outfit is key to great couples portraits. Try to avoid wearing the same colored shirts, pants, or jackets to avoid blending in instead of standing out in your photos. If one of you wants to wear a something patterned, try to stick to just one person because it can cause unnecessary distractions in your photos if you both are wearing the same pattern or color.

    3. Stick to One Color Palette
