So you’ve picked out that special place to capture beautiful portraits of you and the love of your life, but now comes the issue that so many people overlook; your wardrobe!

You want to capture images that you will look back on for the rest of your life with feelings of fondness. Above all, your attire can make a huge contribution to doing just that. That’s why we created a simple guide to help inspire your engagement session attire to ensure that you love these images down to the finest detail!

1.  Spring/Summer Attire

In the warmer seasons, you should try to stick to light, pastel colors that complement the seasons. However, keep in mind that light color palettes tend to be less reflective of the sun which helps avoid excessive sweating. You do not want to be all sweaty for your pictures due to dark, heavy colors or clothes! In addition, blue jeans are a great way to bring out the ocean hue when taking beach pictures, or a stunning sundress/skirt for park pictures. If you plan on wearing a dress or skirt, do try to find something that will be flattering at all angles!

2.  Fall Attire 

Fall is such a beautiful time to take pictures among the vibrant foliage. Likewise, the colors of autumn leaves can be a great palette to work with when it comes to picking out an outfit for your fall engagement session. Deep colors of yellows and maroons perfectly complement the great outdoors during the fall and in turn, make for warm and cozy pictures!


3.  Holiday Themed Attire 

If you plan to get married during one of your favorite holidays, incorporate your theme in your engagement pictures through some holiday inspired attire. Whether it is as simple as posing with pumpkins or dressing up as Santa Claus, show off your quirky personality and love for the festive season!


4.  Matching Attire 

Show off your love for one another with adorable matching outfits! Some great engagement pictures have featured shirts that have cute or funny sayings on them about the couple. Also, they can be as simple as a matching flannel or camouflage print outfit!


5.  Sports Attire 

If you and the love of your life also love sports, show off your favorite hobby with your favorite jerseys! Wearing your team’s jersey is a great way to show off your personalities and common interest.


These are just a few of the many possibilities for your engagement session. At the end of the day, anything you want to wear for your engagement session is a good choice because these are your pictures and we want you to love them!
