How to dress for Engagement Photo Shoot
The most important thing to remember about preparing for an engagement session is that we are trying to photograph you, so be yourself! Dress nice, but don’t get so “dressed up” that you are uncomfortable. Interact with each other the way you normally would. Goof off, make faces, cuddle, laugh, play. In short, have fun and bring your ‘A’ game!
Wear solids or simple patterns. Don’t over do it with the patterns. Solid dark colors are the most flattering.
A cute cocktail/summer dress is always a good way to go.
Stick to more fitted clothing. Anything hanging off your body (baggy) will make you look bigger than you are and look messy.
Comfort is key. Make sure that your outfit is easy to move around in and fits you well. The better you feel in your clothes, the more relaxed and 'yourself' you will be during your shoot, which will result in you looking your best in your pictures
Don't be afraid to wear bold colors. Before you go the all-white route, take into consideration that bright hues really pop on camera
Things Not to Wear
- Bright white matching shirts and Khakis
- Tops with big logos or a lot of writing on them – keep it clean and classy.
- Shirts with short hemlines and mid-drifts. Dress for your shape.
- Super Short skirts.
- Exact matching outfits. Look coordinated, not matching. White shirts and jeans don’t have much personality and your engagement session is your time to let your personality shine.
