What to Wear for Your Engagement Pictures

It feels like summer barely ended and suddenly it’s October! As the leaves slowly begin to turn shades of red and gold, engagement sessions are kicking into full gear before winter sets in. I thought I’d use the blog today to give a few tips for one of the most daunting decisions for your session, what to wear?!?

Here are a few of my quick tips for choosing the right clothing for your engagement photographs:

  • Wear something you FEEL great in!
  • Wear something that fits you well!
  • Coordinate with your groom, don’t match
  • If you plan to change, pick a casual “dressed up jeans” or a sun dress look to start and dress it up to finish
  • Heels always elongate a woman’s leg
  • Accessorize!
  • Don’t be afraid of color
  • Avoid small patterns and prints
  • Accentuate your waist
  • If you’re conscious of your arms, throw on a cute cardigan to cover your shoulders. If it’s your hips, cinch your waist and wear a fuller skirt like a tulip style for example.
  • White denim can be tough to pull off, dark denim is more slimming on camera.
  • Clean your diamond – I’ll definitely pull it aiside to get a great ring shot during your session.
  • Last but not least, have fun!
