Picking out what to wear for your engagement session can be difficult (I changed my own outfit for engagement photos in the car on the way to the session LOL), which is why I’ve compiled a list of tips to help you gather some inspiration!
I always suggest looking over your photographers’ style to see if there are any outfits or colors in common between the photos that you like, that is sometimes the easiest way to see what you’re drawn to!

If you’re uncomfortable in what you choose, it will show in the photos! I always remind my clients that the more comfortable and confident you feel in your outfit – the more comfortable you’ll be in from of the camera!
As I suggested above, take a look at your photographers’ portfolio/Instagram – take note of what you notice! Say your photographer’s clients mainly wear neutrals and you show up in hot pink – the photos may not have the same vibe that you’ve noticed in the photos in their portfolio. If you were to take a look at mine, all of the couples are wearing muted, neutral, or warm colors – but for good reason! It keeps the focus on you two!
Just like colors make sure you’re not mixing too many patterns together. I typically suggest sticking to one pattern, but if done correctly, two or three can look pretty epic!
Matching is okay (like the photo above) to an extent. Though showing up in the same shirt and pants, or the same anything really, can look not great in photos. Remember, we like coordination, not matching!
This might sound like an obvious tip, but make sure you dress appropriately for the weather outside! If you’re hot or freezing in your outfit, it will show in the photos.
Now that we’ve gone over my 5 tips on what to wear to your engagement session, it’s time for the fun part – the inspiration photos!
