WHAT TO WEAR FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS
We will have specific recommendations depending on the location that you choose. However, we want you to wear clothing that showcases your personality. It’s all about styling and planning. The more thought you invest in selecting a wardrobe for your photo shoot, the happier you will be with the results. Leaving the details to the last minute creates stress and takes the fun out of the day. Don’t hesitate to consult with us on options for colors and accessories.
Dress: As a general rule, wear solid colors, as stripes and patterns draw attention away from your face. Avoid wearing turtlenecks and large loose clothing, as these often make the neck seem nonexistent, and the body looks wider than it is. Shorts or capris have a tendency to make legs appear shorter than they are.
Colors: Solid monochromatic colors are easiest to coordinate, but primary or complementary colors also look great and bring energy to the photograph. Darker colors will cause the subject(s) to appear thinner while lighter colors will make the subjects appear larger. Dark pants or jeans with dark shoes give texture and visually anchor a portrait. When choosing color schemes, consider not only what looks best on you, but also what colors will look best on wall portraits and complement your home’s décor.
Accessories: Keep it to a minimum. Avoid hats, hair ornaments, and sparkly or costume jewelry unless it does not distract from the main subject, you.
Footwear: Avoid running shoes, white socks, and heavy footwear. Also, consider fashionable boots, sandals, or bare feet for casual photos.
Props: Props are always a great way to help showcase your personality in your engagement photos.
