It’s a question many couples ask me when they prepare for this engagement photo session. Should we match? Go formal? Wear white? Color? The clothing you end up choosing is an important part of the final art, but it’s easy. All you need to do is just follow a few simple principles. Here is what I suggest when planning out your outfits.

 

  1. Stay true to you.Your shoot is a great opportunity to express your shared interests and personality. Wear something that reflects who you are as individuals and as a couple. Go with something that you are comfortable in and avoid baggy. Fitted is always more flattering.

  1. Coordinate. This doesn’t mean you have to exactly match as that doesn’t look natural. Choose outfits that reflect your love for the outdoors, getting dressed up for a night out to the theatre, or just chilling with a picnic. Whatever that may be just go with a similar vibe.

  1. Keep it simple. Solid bold colors work great vs lots of graphics on a T.shirt for example. If you like patterns opt for something a bit more clean and on one person only.

  1. Avoid all white. It tends to make people look bigger in photos and can be distracting. Embrace color, especially pops of color! For the fall colors such as wine, dark yellow, red, tans and royal blues work well. For the spring colors such as pink, blue, yellow and greens fit the season.

  1. Have variety. Bring a couple outfits to wear. The sessions usually run 60-90 minutes so there’s time to change and show off two to three different parts of your personality.

 

Below are few couples who put these simple principles into action. Check them out …
