If you’re considering an engagement shoot: think natural and relaxed—wear what makes you feel most comfortable and most beautiful. Remember, you don’t have to go too formal. Engagement shoots are about candid, casual moments between you and your partner (Plus, you can always bring multiple outfits).

Which Colors Photograph Best?

Solid colors usually are best. Try to avoid plaids, florals and patterns, and keep the silhouettes streamlined. Jewelry should be minimal—you don’t want distractions in your pics.

Where Should We Have the Shoot?

The most successful engagement shoots are usually done in a spot that is meaningful to you and your partner, from a special spot in nature to a local cafĂŠ.

How Do I Coordinate My Outfit with My Partner?
