Engagement shoots are meant to capture the beautiful moments between you and your partner before you finally tie the knot. These memories will be with you forever and you would want them to be perfect. And even though there is no specific dress code for this event, people have come up with some brilliant ideas on how to dress for this event. Read on for some suggestions from us.
Like we said, engagement shoots have no particular dress codes. That being said, wearing white on the day of the shoot has become quite popular these days! To bring a subtle bridal feel, wear a simple white blouse or a flowy white dress for the occasion.
Keep the outfit simple but unique, letting it act as a herald for the big day. You could opt for eyelet lace or Swiss dot dresses which will capture beautifully on camera while making you look charming at the same time!
While matching head to toe with your partner may not be a good idea, you should definitely try colour coordinating with them! Try matching a mustard dress with a khaki shirt, less cheesy but definitely more eye-catching.
Also, wearing colours from the same palette will bring out better photos in a number of ways. The colours of your outfit will not clash, the photographer will not have to struggle with the lighting to make you both look good – you get the idea. Thus, colour coordination may be what will save the day!
Comfort over others
A photoshoot sounds plenty of fun till you realize how much posing and moving around you have to do. If your outfit is not comfortable, eventually the camera will catch your discomfort or unease!
So, ditch the too-tight heels or the overly fitted dress. Instead go with something that is comfy, breathable while also being stylish. Try clothes made of cotton, linen for extra comfort. It may also help to keep the photoshoots’ location in your mind and dress accordingly! “Comfort over others” should be your new style mantra!
Gem tones are generally bright colours that photograph gorgeously. Even after the photo has been taken, the colours remain unchanged and look as striking as they do in reality. The best idea will be to keep your background neutral while the ruby reds or emerald greens bring the necessary pop of colour. This will keep most of the focus on you and your partner without diverting attention.
Be you, portray yourself
These engagement pictures are meant to capture special moments of your lives. So, it only seems fit that it is your personalities that shine through and you enjoy the process entirely. Do not feel obligated to wear a piece of clothing just because it is “in style”. Wear something that speaks of you, something that you like, to make the moments more authentic. Feeling comfortable and confident in what you wear will craft a look that no stylist will be able to create. Trust us, this is the new trend!
Hopefully, we were able to make your special day even better by providing you with these tips. Keep things simple and realistic and that is all you will actually need to have a fantastic engagement photoshoot!
