Best Engagement Session Outfit Ideas | Rustic NJ Engagement Pictures

Below are just a few examples by season of what to wear to your engagement session. These examples are taken directly from my 2015 Wedding Client Guide that I give to my potential clients at their wedding photography consultation.

The goal is for your outfits to match, just enough. Wear colors in the same color family or contrasting color family. If you do an internet search for a color wheel, you will see exactly what I am talking about. All of the couples featured below dressed for the season that we were photographing their pictures in and embraced their surroundings.

I always suggest having 2 outfits, one that is a little dressier and one that is more casual. I prefer women to wear a dress for one of their outfits. For men, I do not like shirts with writing on it, unless it is part of a theme or prop. Remember, you want to wear clothing that isn’t too trendy or that will age/date the image. I am looking to achieve a timeless and romantic look in all of your pictures.

I hope these suggestions assist you in finding the perfect setting or outfit for your photo session. If you need any additional help coming up with outfits for your pictures, please contact me. I would love to help you create the perfect scene for your engagement pictures. xo

Some refer to me as a Professional Wedding Crasher, others The Baby Whisperer.

I have been building relationships and delivering spectacular wedding experiences to engaged couples for the last 12 years. I have photographed over 150 weddings and have an extensive list of testimonials across the web. Go ahead and Google me :)

3 years ago, I decided that I wanted to specialize in newborns as well. I have spent the last 3 years working side by side with doctors and nurses in my local hospitals, as well as, taking private training lessons with other newborn specialists to learn everything I could about these beautiful little people.

Whether you are looking to show off that new flashy engagement ring or celebrate the growth of your family, I am your girl!
