Tips & Advice
Outfits for engagement photos can be overwhelming, especially if this is your first time getting professional photos. Nevertheless, after months of anticipation, the time has finally come to get your engagement photos taken with your soon-to-be partner. And you may be feeling a little stressed about what outfits you should wear. No problem! I got you!
Hello, I’m Antonio, an award-winning photographer, and owner of White House Wedding Photography. I’ve written this post to help couples like you relieve the tension of deciding on their outfits for their engagement photo shoot. This post will give you 5 tips to keep in mind when deciding what outfits to wear to your engagement session. So, let’s dive right in!
The key word here is you. When figuring out what outfits to wear for engagement photos, think about what makes you feel comfortable and confident. Remember that you will look back on these pictures and share them with families and friends for many years.
Preparing for your engagement session is not the time to go outside your fashion zone and experiment with outfits for engagement pictures. Instead, stay true to yourself and pick clothes that match your personality but, most importantly, make you feel comfortable.
Now, picking outfits that make you feel comfortable doesn’t mean throwing on any old raggedy clothes you find around the house. Outfits for engagement photos should be clean and fresh. Avoid old worn-out clothing! Go shopping for some new threads. You don’t have to break the bank to find outfits for engagement pictures that fit you well and make you look gorgeous.
Ok! Let’s back this up a bit. Before shopping for outfits for engagement pictures, you must consider the location where you will be doing the session. Furthermore, before you even start thinking about what to wear, you must consider the theme you would like to portray. And here is why:
Your engagement photo session theme will significantly impact the location for the shoot and wardrobe ideas. For example, if you are having a shoot on the northeastern seaboard in the middle of winter, it wouldn’t make sense to have a beach theme, and beach outfits would not be practical. Yes, I know this sounds like common sense. Still, you would be amazed to learn that some people chose to show up in full formal wear for an outdoor session here in tropical Miami.
Sorry I digress! Here is the point – before you go shopping for outfits for engagement photos:
With a theme and a location in mind, shopping for your ideal outfits for engagement photos just got easier.
After deciding on your theme and location for your photo shoot, it’s time to go shopping for clothes to complement your theme and location. Here are some do’s and don’ts ideas for engagement picture outfits:
If you wear eyeglasses daily, whether to wear them for your session can also be a tough decision for couples. Ultimately, the choice is up to you. Remember, the key is staying true to yourself. However, here are some things to consider if you wear your glasses as part of your outfit for an engagement photo session:
Did I just scare you about wearing your glasses for your engagement photo shoot? Please don’t be scared. It is really not a big deal. Photographers have been photographing people in glasses since the invention of the medium. Furthermore, you have an option!
If you’re not willing to accept all the nuances of wearing your eyeglasses for your engagement photo session, you can look into various types of contacts. Contact lenses will allow you to ditch your glasses for this special occasion, so you don’t have to worry about ugly glares
on your glasses in your photos.
Accessories can significantly impact your engagement photos, even if they’re just a tiny part of your outfit. Including a touch of gold with your favorite earrings or a dose of silver with your favorite watch can be the finishing touch your engagement photo outfit needs. Styling
jewelry is the perfect way to express yourself through your treasured pieces. In addition, you can and should take this a step further by selecting pieces that complement your partner’s look for a perfect, coordinated picture.
When selecting the accessories you’ll wear with your engagement session outfit – it’s important not to go overboard. While it’s essential to add this lovely touch to your photos, it’s also crucial that you don’t take attention away from your engagement ring. Keep it to one or two accessories per person as a safe rule. Necklaces, watches, and earrings are some of the safest choices.
Overall, the engagement outfits you and your partner pick for pictures are up to you. Because regardless of what you choose, your engagement photos should reflect your love and affection for each other.
