The thought of planning an outfit can seem stressful as heck. “What should I wear?” “What goes with what?” “Does this match enough or is it too matchy?” “Do I have to go buy a whole new outfit or do I have something that will work?” GURL (+ DUDE) I know, it can seem tough but I have a bunch of tips here to help you out and make this clothing conundrum a heck of a lot less stressful and a lot more simple. Let’s talk about what to wear for your couples or engagement session!
Always choose comfort over flashy! If you’re into flashy + formal then by all means, do it! But if formal isn’t your usual, you most likely won’t be comfortable in it and if you choose an outfit you aren’t comfortable in, your photos will show it! If you aren’t comfortable, you won’t look comfortable.
I know it sounds cliche to say be yourself, but it’s true. If you’re more comfortable in jeans and a plain T-shirt, wear it! I would rather you show up comfortable and choose a comfortable location to you, because if you’re not comfortable it will show! If showing up in a cocktail dress and popping champagne is not crazy out of the ordinary for you, then let’s do it! But if you’d rather be shotgunning Busch Lattes in an oversized T-shirt — let’s freaking do it. You don’t have to have a glamourous, extravagant outfit or location for great photos that show who you are as a couple.
This is my fave. Adding texture and pieces that have movement + flow is a gorgeous way to add some details to your photos. Whether that’s a flowery dress, skirt, fringe, adding on a chunky, knitted cardigan or even having your hair down. Movement and texture add much more dimension to your photos!
When it comes to picking outfits, simple is usually better! Try not to stress! If you’ve booked a session with me, I’m always just a text away. Always feel free to send me photos or ask any other questions about outfits or ideas. If you’d rather show up in a solid neutral top and jeans, do it! I don’t think there is a thing as too simple.
Thanks for checkin’ in + reading about what to wear for your couples + engagement session. Stay tuned for more blogs to come!
