What To Wear For Your Engagement Session
1. Stick to what makes you feel YOU
The more comfortable you are with the style of outfit, the more comfortable you’ll feel and less awkward you’ll feel when posing in front of the camera :). Stick with your “style” and what makes you feel beautiful and comfortable.
2. Complement, but don’t match
Stick away from matching your partner's outfit and wearing patterns that are too busy. Keep colours of outfits solid. Complementing each other's outfits works out best for portraits.
Also, pay attention to colour scheme. If you want to wear a nice blue dress, adding the same blue hue in one of your fiancé’s accessories can be a great way to keep a colour scheme and complement his outfit instead of matching.
3. Wear Pastels, cool colours, and neutral tones
Stick away from strong colours like neon and orange. Pastels, cool colours, and neutral tones will help your faces and love for each other in the portraits stand out.
4. Add an accessory.
Adding at least one accessory to your outfit can look really gorgeous in portraits. This could be as simple as a cute scarf or a necklace.
5. Stick with one or two outfits.
It’s important to remember to keep the engagement session from turning into a fashion session. Having too many outfits can take time away from the time actually photographing because you’ll feel rushed and stressed to jump into different outfits.
With one or two outfits you can be focused on the session to try out more locations and poses to best display your love and story with each other.
6. Go classic, not trendy.
Choose outfits that will be timeless! The last thing you want is to look back at an engagement session years from now and be upset that you’re wearing something that is no longer in style. Go with a classic outfit you are comfortable in that will never go out of style.
7. Make use of the season!
Not sure what to wear for a winter or fall session? Don’t be afraid to bundle up in style!
Stylish winter and fall clothes and accessories can look amazing for your engagement session in the cold weather.

Interested in working with me?
If you look at the announcement bar at the top of the website you’ll notice that I only accept a certain amount of couples per year and as I get booked that number gets lower and lower with no exceptions because I want to make sure I give my ALL to the couples who reserved me.
Once that number hits zero I won’t be accepting any more couples with no exceptions.
