You have your photography session booked, the location will be awesome, you know how you are doing your hair and your makeup. Then you realized you don’t know what you should wear!
Bottom line, you are really the best judge of how you should dress for engagement photos, but keep in mind some of these basic tips to avoid hassle later!
Color is fun
Don’t be scared of adding some vibrant colors to your wardrobe for your photo shoot. I have to admit I am partial to having people wear black, but adding a little color can really make for interesting imagery.
Solid colors are better than prints
Solids are less distracting than prints. The most important element in a photograph is YOU, not what you are wearing.
You don’t have to match (exactly)
I really enjoy photographing couples that put some effort into what they are going to wear. For example, a couple can wear the same color in different shades. The variety is nice and it still looks uniform.
Add your own flare but don’t dress overly trendy
It’s nice to have your own style and dress modern, but remember you don’t want to look back on your images in a few months or years and realize you look hideous. Instead add a little of your own personality with a favorite piece of jewelry, etc.
