Congratulations on getting engaged! The time has come to finally start planning your engagement photo shoot and, most importantly, choosing your photo outfits. Trust me, an engagement shoot is an opportunity to capture your love and fun moments. It should be fun and less formal than the wedding day photos. Therefore, the most important thing you need to do is pick an outfit.
This is because you will likely use these photos for your wedding website, save-the-date invites, and more. If you are looking for what to wear for your engagement session, worry not; I have got you covered with amazing engagement photo outfit ideas. My list includes casual and formal outfit ideas for spring, summer, fall, and winter. Let’s read through more about my favorite engagement photo outfit in detail-
Spring is the best time of the year for a perfect outdoor shoot as the weather is warmed up, and every flower and tree is in bloom. This means you will get more lively and memorable photos. When picking up your spring engagement outfit, consider the weather and location. This is because spring days can either be warm or chilly. But most importantly, consider your style and choose outfits that make you feel special and comfortable. In essence, I generally recommend wearing lighter, more muted shades with fewer patterns. I have provided a few examples below, but these can be just an inspiration to tailor your look. Follow your own style.
You will feel like the star of the show when you wear this ivory engagement dress for a spring shoot. It is designed to be fitted throughout, featuring a back slit and a sweetheart neckline. If you aren’t a fan of heels, you’ll love the idea of wearing this gown with flat footwear. Pair it with a jacket or a chic top, and you can pull off any style you like.
Your partner will go ‘Wow’ seeing you in this ethereal, silver blue dress. It has a lovely sweetheart neckline with subtle lacing, slightly puff sleeves, and an airy, relaxed fit to steal everyone’s attention.
With potential heat and humidity, the wardrobe decision for summer gets trickier. So, what should you wear for a summer engagement shoot? I have compiled the top summer engagement photo outfits to nail your upcoming summer engagement session.
A dreamy, ruffle maxi dress is just what you need this summer. The halter neckline and fitted sleeveless bodice are super comfortable and stylishly romantic. You can pair it nicely with a cute headband, neutral shoes, and long earrings.
The flattering midi dress in soft silk fabric comes with adjustable straps, thigh-high slit detail and slim fit. It is a classy summer engagement photo dress you will definitely want to re-wear. The unique shades of blue, muted light brown, and mint green are just a few things I love. In this case, I would recommend avoiding largely patterned designs. Add a sparkly hairpiece and dangly earrings with high heels to complete the look.
If you’re planning a fall engagement photo session, you are in luck! Why? Fall is a wonderful season not only for the romantic views it offers but also for its overall ambiance. The leaves change, and the warm golden light through the trees makes photos look even more special.
The white long sleeves are a piece you will definitely reach out for regular wear. With a sweetheart neckline, puff chiffon sleeves, and sweet tie detail, you can nicely dress it up with a skirt or denim, depending on the vibe of your fall engagement photo shoot.
Winter sessions are my favorite, and many clients contact me for many proposals and engagements. It’s the time to capture and remember so many fun emotions for a lifetime. Here are my favorite engagement photo outfits for winter.
With this, I conclude the engagement photo outfit ideas for each season. I hope you will find this article helpful. As engagement photos help commemorate one of the happiest times in your life, make sure to get the most out of every moment. In addition to securing the photographer and engagement shoot location, make sure to select the outfits ahead of time.
