Your engagement session is the perfect opportunity to capture your love story in photos that will be cherished for years to come. As such, choosing what to wear for your session is an important decision. While there are no hard and fast rules, there are a few tips and tricks that can help you look your best and create timeless photos that you will treasure forever. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the best clothing choices for your engagement session and how to make sure you look your best in your photos.

First and foremost, make sure you feel comfortable in what you wear. Whether you prefer cozy and casual, or sparkly and fancy; choose an outfit that suits your style. If you have any areas you’re not confident about, such as your arms or belly, consider wearing a long sleeve, cardigan, or empire waist dress.

If your partner is wearing a print, make sure you choose a solid color outfit to balance it out.

Tips for coordinating outfits with you partner

Coordinating outfits with your partner for your engagement session can be a fun and exciting task. One tip is to choose outfits that complement each other in terms of color palette and style. Think about the location and season of your session as well, and make sure your outfits match the overall vibe. Don't forget to communicate with your partner and discuss your style preferences to ensure a cohesive and coordinated look. If your partner is wearing a solid, then you should wear a pattern, and I recommend not wearing the same color.

Why engagement photos are important:

Engagement photos are important because they provide you with the opportunity to capture your love story in a beautiful and meaningful way. As a northern California wedding photographer, I offer a complimentary engagement session to all of my clients because I believe it is a crucial part of the wedding experience. It allows us to get to know each other better and helps you feel more comfortable in front of the camera on your big day.
