Rule number 1: wear something comfortable.
Rule number 2: wear something that makes you feel confident.
Rule number 3: don't over-think it.

It's super easy to fall into the "I have nothing to wear" pit. Once you have a few options picked out for the both of you, try them on and stand next to each other in the mirror. Do you love it? Do this a week before your session so you're not scrambling at the last minute trying to figure out what to wear.

Here are a few things to avoid:

  • Anything that shows straps or tags that have to be fixed frequently

  • Fabrics that easily wrinkle

  • Shoes that are uncomfortable/difficult to walk in

  • Tiny patterns with a lot of bright contrast

  • Shirts with logos/emblems

  • Baggy button-ups 

  • Flip-flops or sandals

  • Tennis shoes/sneakers

  • Cargo shorts/pants

  • Baseball caps

 

To pull everything together, treat yourself to getting pampered, hair/nails, whatever that might mean to you. You want to look and feel your best when you're having your photo taken, so do your thing and take care of yourself.  A couple of things people typically don’t think about:  moisturizing hands and lips!  Dry lips, hands/cuticles can be difficult to correct with editing. 

 

Here are a few more tidbits:

  • Avoid matching, coordinating is better.

  • Accessorize! Nothing over the top here, simple earrings and a necklace can pull things together nicely.

 

Dress for the event. You both want to look like you're dressing for the same occasion. A good rule of thumb is to dress as if you were going out on a nice date, not super dressy but not your daily outfit. 

I hope this information has helped prepare you for your Engagement Session! I'm looking forward to getting to together!
