It can be hard enough to pick out the perfect outfit for a date night or evening on the town with your girlfriends, let alone for your engagement photos. That's why we teamed up with Rooted Boutique and White Oak Formal Boutique in Littleton, CO to bring you five tips to help you figure out what to wear to your engagement photos.
Wear something that represents your personality. Whether it's an outfit that is super glam, or very simple and casual; the most important thing is to be comfortable. Since most people don't spend a lot of time in front of a camera, you might be a little out of your element. Picking an outfit that you are comfortable and confident in will make the process so much easier and more fun!
Go for a cohesive look with your outfits, and stick to a few outfit changes. You don't want to have so many wardrobe changes that you aren't spending enough time in each one. Since you will likely have a time frame to take your photos in, pick around 3 looks so you get plenty of options in each. Coordinate with your partner so the transition from each look makes sense. Whether that is a color scheme or a nod to your wedding day theme. Try to pull each look together in some way.
Bold Colors and Patterns
If you are going to incorporate a pop of color, have it be an accessory or piece of clothing rather than the entire look. Avoid large patterns that are overly bold or bright. The focus should be on you and your fiancé, not just what you are wearing. Soft prints and solids tend to look best and don't steal all of the attention. However, if you want to bring in a pop of color, make it an accent piece like your top, skirt, shoes or necklace!
It's all in the Details
Show off fun details in what you wear. Whether you are wearing an open-back sweater or a high-low hemline. You can get really creative with the way you show off details in what you wear. Flowy skirts look beautiful in the wind or draped in your setting. Photos from behind can be just as interesting as ones from the front, so think about your outfit from all angles.
Show off your Assets
Whether you are rocking an amazing glam dress or some jeans, make sure your look fits you correctly and shows off your assets. Over-sized sweaters and billowy dresses are so cute but may make you look bigger than you are in photographs. Pick outfits that show off your favorites features and, again, make you feel confident!
If you need help styling outfits for your upcoming engagement photos, pop into your nearest local boutique and ask them for advice. Many boutiques will also be able to provide suggestions for what your significant other should wear.
