It’s a question many couples ponder as they prepare for their engagement photo session. What do we wear? Bright colors or muted tones? To match or not to match? Should we go casual, elegant or creative? All it really takes are three simple principles! Here are our suggestions:
- Stay true to you. Your shoot is a great opportunity to express your shared interests, personality and style. Wear outfits that reflect who you are as individuals, and also as a couple.
- Coordinate (not match). Whether your outfit choice reflects a love of the outdoors, going out for cocktails, or chilling at the beach, your mate should be wearing something with a similar vibe. We suggest though to not wear matchy outfits though. Most people don’t go out together wearing the exact same thing. If you want the shoot to be more believable, find commonality within your outfits, but don’t duplicate them.
- Keep it clean. Overly casual choices, like t-shirts with a lot of graphics, are not the most aesthetically pleasing. If patterns and prints are your thing, it is recommended that you opt for clean and consistent patterns.
