What do I wear for my engagement photos?
This is one of the questions that every couple asks.
Choosing the right outfits is vital to wonderful engagement photos! You will want to look like yourselves, look amazing and still be comfortable, below are a few tips on picking the perfect outfit.
1. Show off your shoes! Often times shoes are an afterthought and often not though about at all... But the right pair of shoes can really make a difference and can be a fun way to let your personality shine through. Whether you choose a pair of heels, cowboy boots or a beautiful pair of sandals, choose a pair that suits the location and outfit you have chosen.
2. Adding jewelry really makes you look polished and put together, even a simple bracelet adds a lot to a photo, and don’t forget to shine up your engagement ring for it’s closeup!
3. Dressing for the location you have chosen is essential. You wouldn’t want to wear a sleek black dress and heels in the woods or on the beach, opt for something with a little more whimsy. For shots in the city streets perhaps you'd want to dress a little more formal. Outfit changes are a fun way to add a little more variety to your photos!
4. Coordinate, don’t match... Please don’t wear outfits that are matchy-matchy, a better option is a subtle colour coordination that feels balanced and easy. While you don't want to look like twins, you do want the photo to feel even, and it will be even easier to find light that flatters you both if you're dressing in the same colour family.
Don’t be afraid of colour, dressing up or being girlie... Most importantly BE YOURSELF!
