We love photographing Engagement Sessions! This is the time when we can practice for your wedding day photos, try various poses and learn how to work with each other. Our couples love their Engagement session photos and some of them choose to include them in their Save-the-Date cards, invitations, reception table decor, guest book, etc.
The question we ask the most prior to an Engagement Session is WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?!
So we just wanted to cover a few of our ideas regarding your look for an Engagement Session.
Our general guideline regarding clothing is to wear solid colours or simple patterns. Big logos and writing on clothes normally distract from the images and just don't look right. We also suggest wearing neutral colours. Camera will love you in it. :)
To make it nice and simple generally a nice shirt and pants always look great on guys. For ladies a cute cocktail dress is always a good way to go, if weather permits. If the weather a bit cool, a nice jacket or a vests will look lovely.
Some people prefer to dress more casual and its totally fine. Just be you and you will look amazing! A pair or jeans, a nice shirt and/or sweater will always work great together if this feels more comfortable to you then a fancy dress..
So we believe you should stay true to your style. You don't want to look back at your photos and think "Why on earth did I wear this?" Make sure you wear something you are comfortable in.
Ideally it would be great if you could coordinate colours and styles. For example if you both wear blue jeans and white shirts. However, they don't even have to be the exact colour. The same colour family would work well (for example light blue and dark blue).
Let's see below some photos from our previous Engagement Sessions to see what our couples to wore for some examples and inspiration!
Both girls above wore pretty white dresses. One wore a short dress, another girl a long dress. White dresses look great in photos and are such a cool idea for your pre-wedding photoshoot!
