Congratulations on your upcoming engagement photography session! As your wedding photographer, I want to help you look and feel your best during this special occasion. Here's a style guide to ensure that your engagement photos reflect your personalities and the beautiful moments you're celebrating.
Comfort is Key
Choose outfits that you feel comfortable and confident in. The more at ease you are, the more natural and joyful your photos will be.
Consider your usual style, and aim for a look that represents both of you individually and as a couple.
Opt for smart casual attire that strikes a balance between formal and casual. Think stylish, but not overly formal. This can include well-fitted jeans, khakis, blouses, dresses, and button-down shirts.
Avoid clothes that are too flashy or distract from the focus of the photos – you want the connection between you two to shine.
Spring/Summer - Embrace vibrant colors such as pastels, blues, and pinks. Light, breathable fabrics like cotton and linen work well and consider floral patterns and lighter accessories.
Autumn - Earthy tones like oranges, browns, and deep reds complement the autumn landscape. Textured fabrics such as knits and tweeds add warmth.
Winter - Jewel tones like deep blues, greens, and burgundy look stunning against a winter backdrop. Layers can be stylish and functional – think scarves, jackets, and stylish coats.
Coordinate your outfits without being too matchy-matchy. Choose a color palette that complements each other rather than wearing identical outfits.
Time of Day
Consider the time of day for your session. Soft, golden hour light during sunrise or sunset can enhance the overall warmth and mood of your photos.
Feel free to accessorize! Hats, scarves, and statement jewelry can add a personal touch to your photos.
Consider a fresh haircut or styling, and for makeup, choose a look that enhances your natural features. It's okay to wear a bit more than usual for the camera.
Ultimately, the most important thing is to be yourselves. Let your personalities shine, and enjoy the experience together.
Remember, these are just guidelines, and the most important thing is that you feel authentic and happy during your engagement session. I can't wait to capture these beautiful moments for you! If you have any questions or concerns about your outfits, feel free to reach out.
