Outfits For Your Engagement Photos

23 October 2017

Dressing up for an engagement photo leaves you with a lot of options. Do the style and sizing work together? Is the background pretty enough? Does this lettering distract away from the important things? Knowing what to do and what not to do is a learning by doing process, and thus here are a few tips on taking a good engagement photo when you have no clue where to start.

Keep the Season in Mind

Having a summer wedding is glorious; you’re practically guaranteed to have the sun’s rays shining down on your and reflecting off of your dress, and perfectly highlighting your partner’s face whenever you look at them. Yet, a lot of the time a wedding is booked about 6 months after a proposal, so you can’t be sure whether you’ll catch the rays or not unless you specifically plan for it.

In the meantime, use the fall and winter to good effect in a photo shoot. For fall you can wrap up warm and stylish in layers and designer jackets, emphasising your new life and comfort ahead, if you like to think of it that way. Fluffy coats and scarves make us look cute, and a little sexy when we want them to!

Incorporate Your Background

Depending on where you’ve decided to get your photos done, use the setting around you to complement your outfit and make you fit better into the shoot. Opted for the outdoors? Time to get those grassy shots of you lying down with your heads together. Indoors? Use those industrial brick wall shots to show off the colors in your outfit.

For clearer skies, use them in the header of your photos and have the two of you standing happily beneath it, wearing light clothes that show off your curves and grooves, and highlight the feeling of being surrounded by nature. Umbrellas work well in rainy shoots; kiss underneath them!

Get Your Nails Done

Showing off an engagement ring means it should be centre stage, and when your significant other decided to shop amongst 77 Diamonds engagement rings, you’re not going to want people to miss them! Having them act as your main accessory is key, and complementing them with some buffed and beautifully painted nails is the cherry on the top.

Accessorize accordingly! For lighter colors on your nails such as teal, pale green, or pink, a good flower corsage would work. For darker and more striking colors like red and purple, something lacy will have good impact for your hands. Make sure to take a photo of the two of you joining hands, maybe laughing and dancing at the same time.

Remember that the photos don’t have to be perfect, and you can take more than one of each pose. Once you’ve done your serious shoots, have a little fun with your setup! It makes the process a lot less awkward and gives you some good pre wedding memories, perfect for combatting the stress of the rest of the planning!
