What to wear for your engagement shoot?

January 20th, 2024

Hey there!

So, you've booked a photo shoot. The date is approaching, and that sneaky little thought creeps in - "What on earth should I wear?" As your photographer, I've got your back. Let's dive into this discussion like a swan into a serene lake - gracefully and without a splash!

First off, remember this: comfort is key. If you're uncomfortable, it'll show in the pictures. So, choose outfits that make you feel like a rockstar, or a princess, or a suave secret agent - whatever floats your boat!

Now, let's talk colors. Neutrals are a safe bet. They don't distract from your face and blend well with most backdrops. But hey, if you love that neon green shirt, bring it on! Just remember, the focus should be on you, not your clothes.

Patterns can be a bit tricky. As a rule of thumb, small, subtle patterns work better than large, bold ones. But rules are made to be broken, right? Just make sure the pattern doesn't overpower the image.

Now, onto accessories. They can be the cherry on top of a fabulous outfit. A statement necklace, a cool hat, or a vintage watch can add that extra oomph to your look. But remember, less is often more. Too many accessories can make the image look cluttered.

Should you bring changes of clothes? Absolutely! Variety is the spice of life, after all. Different outfits can give a range of looks - from casual to formal, playful to serious. Just don't bring your entire wardrobe, okay?

Now, let's address the elephant in the room - to match or not to match. If you're coming for a couples or family shoot, coordinating can be a good idea. But matching outfits? Not so much. It can look a bit cheesy. Instead, aim for a harmonious blend of colors and styles that reflect each person's individuality.

One last thing, this is your photo shoot. Your pictures should reflect who you are. So, if you love that quirky sweater your grandma knitted, wear it. If your style is more t-shirts and jeans, that's awesome too. The most important thing is that you feel good in what you're wearing.

Well, I hope this helps you in your quest for the perfect photo shoot outfit. Remember, these are just guidelines. You do you, and I'll do my best to capture your unique style and personality in the pictures.

Can't wait to see you at the shoot! Cheers!
