Happy Friday! So excited for Week 2 Fridays with Emerald Stone! With several engagement shoots around the corner, I thought it be a great topic to touch on. Planning outfits can be challenging and time consuming! I hope this helps 🙂

The most important thing during your engagement shoot is to be yourself! The whole purpose of the shoot is to capture exactly who you are, and show your personalities.
Wear solids or simple patterns. Don’t over do it with the patterns. Solid dark colors are the most flattering. Avoid bright florescent colors. Wearing a color that resembles a bright highlighter will cast that exact color onto your face.
Dress for the season, especially if your engagement shoot is outdoors.
You’ll want to coordinate with each other. Think about colors that complement each other, say cherry red and bright blue, or baby pink and turquoise, and make sure your outfits are color coordinated. The same goes for how dressy you’re planning to be; if you’re going for a formal look, then both of you need to be formal.
Consider your location. Think about where you will be shooting with me. Are you going for a soft natural/rustic feel? Then sticking to soft neutral colors may be a great option. Are you going to be shooting in a city or urban area? Then brighter colors or a more “dressed up” approach may work with the setting better. It doesn’t hurt to look at shoots from similar locations and see what other people wore. It’s a great way to see what you like.
I really hope this helps when making the decision on what to wear for your engagement shoot! Here are a few examples of Engagement Photos:
