What to wear to your engagement photo session?
Your pre wedding / engagement photos should be a fun, less formal precursor to your wedding day photos. You may use these photos for your save-the-dates, your wedding day programs or even your invitations, so you’ll want to look your best. On your engagement photo session you can also try your wedding hair style and make up. Any important photo comes with a lot of pressure—choosing what to wear shouldn’t be one of them.
- Choose your outfits ahead of time, so you aren’t scrambling to find pieces that go together on the day of.
- Make sure your ensembles work for the season and location of your photos
- Express your personal style—the more confident you feel, the better your photos will turn out. And this is the most important thing. To be 100% confident!
- At the very least, your engagement photos are a perfect opportunity to capture some sweet moments between you and your fiancé (while looking really good).
Spring is my favourite season and is symbolic of new beginnings, so what better time to celebrate your new life as a married couple? This gorgeous season is all about pretty pastels, florals and dreamy details, so don’t be afraid to add lively touches of color and whimsical prints to your spring engagement photo outfits when deciding what to wear. As far as accessories are concerned, let your romantic leanings take over: Floral details, flower crowns and vintage-inspired pieces are a fresh place to start.
Spring can bring sunshine or showers, or both. Stave off chilly air and throw a lightweight sweater over a flirty dress or skirt—you won’t freeze if temps start to drop, but you’ll still look fresh and airy. If he’s opting for dressier attire, a blue suit is totally on trend but not too stuffy. And he can always remove the suit jacket for a more laid-back look.
Ohhh and I love pastels!
There’s no season like spring to break out a cheerful color palette when deciding what to wear for engagement photos. For a no-fail take on this trend, choose cooler pastels like blue, green and purple that work together but don’t clash. Not a huge fan of color? Try stonewashed shades like blush or wisteria for a subtle twist on this style.
How about Beach Engagement Photos?
If you’re opting for a nautical vibe with beach engagement photos, don’t be afraid to get some sand between your toes. Going barefoot sets a laid-back mood that works in a seaside setting. And this no-fuss approach will save you the trouble of searching for beach-appropriate footwear. To keep your engagement photos looking polished, pair bare feet with structured outfits. Navy blue and white ensembles are a safe bet for pulling off a beach style that’s laid-back but still pulled together.
