6 Outfit Ideas for your Engagement Session

Don’t know where to begin when deciding outfits for you and your soon to be hubby’s engagement shoot? We’ve got you covered with a few tips and tricks, plus some of our go to looks!

We suggest having two to three different looks that are coordinated and offer variety. Consider bringing one dressy look and one more casual look. Embrace accessories and statement pieces and keep in mind the environment that you will be in. If on natural ground, we’d recommend staying away from a pointy heel, but if you’ll be in a city go for it! Most importantly be comfortable and represent your individual styles, whether that’s elegant glam or mountain casual you do you boo.

Mountain Engagement 

If you are in a green environment, consider wearing colors complementary to that. You can do neutrals such as white and shades of ivory and tans to blend into the scenes in a natural way, or reds for a bold look. Try to avoid greens for summer mountain engagement shoots and more fall colors during a fall engagement session so that you don’t blend in with the scenery. This Wyoming couple was outfitted perfectly for their Jackson engagement session.

Include your dog! 

We love when couples include their doggo in their engagement sessions, after all they are our best friends! They add the most precious touch and make your session more personal to you as a couple. Not to mention they are a major cute moment. This Colorado couple, who had their engagement session featured in the Breckenridge Wedding Guide, brought along their sweet golden retriever to their session. Talk about CUTE! Also the contrast of the couples outfits with the changing leaves was perfect for a fall mountain engagement shoot.

Go Bold!

Want to make a statement? Go for bright colors such as red or orange. Prints can also be a great addition to your photos, choose a floral printed dress or skirt to ad some femininity. Movement is also great, think flowy dresses and skirts to play around with and have some windswept moments with them. This Utah couple, featured in our Utah 2020 issue, opted for both bold color and print and we are here for it!

Throw on a denim Mrs. jacket displaying your new name like this bride to be, featured in our McCall Wedding Guide. We think it’s an adorable touch and another way to get excited for that new name! Feel free to add a hat or statement shoes if you don’t want to ad the denim jacket also embrace jewelry whether it be an heirloom or something new.

If you’re the couple always in jeans and plaid shirts embrace it! Whether you do an in home engagement session or on horseback if you are a casual couple stick to your style! You’ll not only be more comfortable but it will also showcase your relationship better  because you are comfortable and in your element. Jeans are OK! We are obsessed with this playful couple whose photos are included in our 2020 Idaho issue.

Winter Wonderland 

We love how this bride to be, featured in our Aspen Wedding Guide, added fur to her winter engagement session. I mean talk about chic with that mink coat! For a more bridal look she opted for a white fur jacket opposed to her brown mink that perfectly paired with her fiancé’s tan dinner jacket. Her hat also added another element of style to her look.
