What to Wear For Your Engagement Session | West Palm Beach Wedding Photographer

What do we wear?! Ahhhh. The age old question that we get again and again. Don’t worry, I’m here to help!

Follow our professional tips below to ensure that you and your significant other look great during your engagement session!

Wear stylish but comfortable clothing.

This may seem like an obvious point, but we want you to be comfortable during your session! We always do a lot of actions during our posing, so comfortable clothing will help you feel more relaxed and confident while you’re striking your poses! We might even ask you to dance, so be prepared! ;) Nothing’s worse than wearing a mini skirt that’s just a bit too short, only to have you re-adjusting the whole time!


Bring two sets of outfits, one more casual and one dressy.

This of course is an optional suggestion, but our sessions are long enough to get great photos with two separate looks! We always find that couples love having a variety to their photos, and different outfits help achieve this! You can decide how dressy you want to be, depending on your personalities! Love wearing gowns? Wear one! We love it!


You don’t need to match.

Gone are the days of the ’90’s photos, you know the ones! Where everyone is matching in one way or another. I remember family photos where we all wore denim. Ouch. It’s perfectly fine to have outfits the are coordinating, but no matching. Do you want to wear a pretty pink dress? Maybe a gray shirt and nice jeans will work wonderfully to compliment your outfit. Does he have a favorite bowtie he wants to wear? Pick your colors based off of his favorite details!


Incorporate things that you both love or your culture!

We always love when couples include special traditions, cultures, and hobbies into their sessions! This is the exception to the “no matching” rule! Do you both love baseball? Matching jerseys of your favorite team might be adorable! While you’re at it, bring some props to complete the look! Do you have a special garment from your culture that you want to showcase? Wear it!


Bonus Tips:

Bring props! There’s just something extra fun about shoots with props (or pets!)
