There are several elements to your engagement shoot that must come together to depict the best example of your love as it translates through photos. Lighting, composition, and typically the location selection are solely influenced by me as your photographer. However, what you wear to your shoot is just as important. And for this reason, I would not recommend trying to assemble an outfit 30 minutes prior to your session.
I reached out to Stylist and Fashion Blogger, Felicia Hunter, of Fashionable Purpose to share her tips on what type of attire to rock for your engagement shoot!
1. Wear the colors of your wedding.
2. Choose a style of clothes that incorporates your theme (i.e. if you have a beach theme, wear sandals, sundress, bermuda shorts etc).
3. Avoid wearing formal attire to your photo shoot. Leave this expression for your wedding day.
4. Get creative!
