On the day of the engagement shoot, thinking about what to wear may overwhelm you; here are some tips that can help.
The first thing to keep in mind is that comfort does matter. For your engagement session, dress like you, not like someone else. Make sure you two feel comfortable with what you wear. Believe it, that kind of sensation does not escape the camera lens.
Following your intuition will be key. Some couples prefer to wear a casual and refined look, and others prefer to wear an elegant and fun outfit. It's up to you and your partner.
Combine, Don't Copy
Find contrasting colors and match different accessories that complement each other's outfits. Two different looks with similarities will look great in your photos! Try choosing colours on the opposing sides of the colour wheel such as blue and red when deciding what to wear for your engagement session.
Your engagement photos will be everlasting. and you will go back to looking at those images forever. One of the keys to achieving harmony in the photos is to identify the primary color your partner is wearing. That makes it much easier to combine them, giving a coordinated look where everything fits together.
Pastels, Neutrals and More!
Pastels, cool colors, and neutral tones can help bring out the best look, especially amongst natural scenery.
If you want a splash of bold color, it may be the perfect touch that your engagement session needs. Your wedding photographer may be able to give you some great ideas.
Complementary accessories will add detail to your outfit. Ideally, use accessories such as sweaters, necklaces, jackets, scarves, and hats, plus you can add some layers. That will give you different looks without having to change outfits completely.
I hope this has been helpful in helping you to choose what to wear for your engagement session. Remember, these sessions are a heap of fun and you should feel confident and comfortable in what you choose to wear.
