Engagement shoots are a great way to document your engagement and remember happy times. But here comes the million-dollar question: what should you wear? An engagement shoot is an event where you want to look good for your photographer, but also feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. Here are some tips on what to wear for your engagement photos!
Go for neutrals or pastels
You want to look good in the photos, but you don’t want them to stand out from each other because they’ll be side by side. The idea behind engagement shoots is that it’s a documentation of engagement and love between two people so try not to wear anything too loud or attention-grabbing.
Casual clothes are the way to go
You’ll feel more comfortable in what you’re wearing and it will reflect your personality better than if you were to wear something too formal. Plus, engagement shoots usually take place outdoors so you want something that’s light and airy.
Comfy clothes are key!
You’ll be doing a lot of walking and standing so you might want to make sure not to wear anything that’s tight or uncomfortable. You’ll also be in the sun for a good amount of time so choose something with sunscreen built-in!
(While most engagement shots are done during the day, we still recommend going for comfortable outfits during night shoots!)
Show your personality in your clothes
Think about what your engagement shoot will be like and the things that you’ll want to remember. If it’s a completely different theme than just casual clothes, then go for that! It wouldn’t hurt to go the extra mile as long as it represents you and your partner’s personalities. Engagement shoots are about having fun so choose something that makes you happy when you look back on your photos in the future.
Always remember that when it comes to choosing your engagement shoot outfits, personal taste is a key factor. The outfits you choose help set the mood of your engagement photos, so wear pieces that feel like you and of course, don’t be afraid to seek help from your loved ones and your photographer!
