Are you and your significant other about to embark on the exciting journey of engagement photos? Congratulations! You’re about to create memories that will last a lifetime!
But before you start stressing about which filter to use or how to angle yourself for the perfect shot, let’s talk about what really matters: what to wear for your engagement photos.
First things first – let’s talk about color.
It’s important to choose colors that complement each other without being too matchy-matchy. You don’t want to look like twins, but color compliments are always nice.
So if your partner is wearing a blue shirt, consider pairing it with a green dress or a purple blouse. Or if he’s sporting a red sweater or jacket, try wearing a yellow skirt or pants. And remember – just because it’s an engagement photo doesn’t mean you have to stick with traditional colors like white and black (unless that’s what you’re into).
Now onto style.
Are you going for a casual beach vibe or more of a formal look? Either way, it’s important to stay true to your personal style while still looking put-together.
If you’re more of a sweatpants-and-hoodie kind of person, go for it! Just make sure they’re fun and maybe add some statement socks. On the other hand, if you prefer dresses and heels, don’t be afraid to dress up for the occasion (but maybe bring some comfy shoes for after the shoot).
And speaking of shoes…
They can make or break an outfit (and potentially cause blisters during the shoot). We recommend comfortable yet stylish footwear like sneakers or boots. We’ve even seen couples get custom-made shoes made for the big day from Vans or Converse.
Now onto accessories
This is where you can really show off your personality. Think statement earrings, hats, scarves, belts – anything that adds texture and dimension without taking away from the main attraction: you and your partner. Or if you guys have a furry friend, they can also join in the fun, just bring some treats and some water or even a friend to help hold your cute pup while you take a few on your own too.
And finally – looking awesome.
Yes folks, this could mean haircuts, manicures, and maybe even a beard trim. It may seem trivial but trust us – looking polished will make all the difference in your photos. Plus, you’ll feel like a million bucks so you’ll have all the confidence in the world to look your best.
So there you have it folks – expert advice from yours truly on what to wear for your perfect engagement photoshoot. Remember: stay true to yourselves, have fun with accessories and color choices, and always bring snacks/water or plan on going out for brunch afterwards, always our favorite. Mimosas all around.
