Engagement Session Photos (What to Wear)
Ever wonder why bridesmaids have been rocking dresses in weddings for years? It’s no coincidence. Dresses come in styles that offer so much variety. Think about it: you can wear a dress and feel cute, elegant, or sexy. Not only that, dresses have a magical way of flattering all types of female figures.
Say Yes to the Dress!
A long, flowy dress brings a touch of romance and movement that looks incredible in engagement photos. Wearing a dress while twirling or walking looks even better paired with a natural backdrop outdoors — so let’s head to the ocean, forest, or mountains. Not a fan of a long dress? Shorter cocktail-length dresses and midi skirts look great on camera too.
I shot all of the images in this post for the one love photography team and I can’t tell you how pumped I was with the outfit styling. Sam’s terracotta dress looked amazing with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, and her patterned romper, fuzzy sweater, and hat below were perfect for a cozy session at Lover’s Lane in San Francisco.
When is the last time you had a reason to wear heels?! Dust them off and put them on! Heels and booties elongate the leg and give you a reason to stand tall and confident. Bring along a pair of flats or flip flops to change into while walking around.
Final Tip: Layer and accessorize your look.
Accessories and layers are simple addition that make a big impact! Adding them pulls your entire look together. I love scarves or jackets (think leather moto or denim). Additional show-stopping accessories to include: earrings, a necklace, and/or a hat!
