Engagement Photo Outfit Combinations

Taking engagement photos is something that every couple looks forward to. They’re a great way to have professional-quality photos that can add emphasis to your engagement announcements or add visual interest to your wedding décor. Engagement photos also tend to be less “formal” then wedding photos, meaning you’ll have images of you as a couple that are a bit more relaxed. When it comes to taking engagement photos, choosing the right outfits are key. The clothing you and your partner wear will largely depend on the season and type of engagement photo you are looking to take.

Here are a collection of elegant engagement photo outfit combinations that will make your pictures pop.

Springtime-Soft & Styled

For photos with a soft, slightly bohemian aesthetic, there’s no better time to take your engagement pictures than in the Spring. Beautiful flowers, bright colors, and a gentle breeze are just some of the things you’ll get to enjoy if you opt for taking your engagement photos outside during this season. Match the ambiance of nature by keeping the clothing light and breezy – a floral sundress and boho accessories will work for her, khaki trousers and a lightweight linen button down are the perfect pick for him.

Summer-Urban Elegance

There’s nothing more chic than summer in the city. If you want to put a more contemporary twist on your engagement photos, stick to an urban setting. Rooftops are a great place to take elegant photos that feature your city’s soaring skyline in the background. Or, choose an iconic landmark location like a fountain, statue, or historic building – either way, you’ll end up with classy downtown engagement photos that will take everyone’s breath away. For this type of engagement shoot, stick to a monochromatic color palette – for her, try a little black dress with statement heels. For him, dressy trousers with a button down is the perfect complement.

Fall-Rustic Chic

Early fall is a popular time to take engagement photos. The sky is blue, the foliage is at its most beautiful, and there’s a slight chill to the air that only adds to the ambiance. For rustic Fall engagement photos, create a luxe layered look full of warm colors and rich textures. Layers also mean you can easily switch up your look so you have a greater variety of photos to choose from. For her, try layering a chambray shirt under a classic sweater – then finish the entire look off with jeans and riding boots. His favorite flannel or three-quarter zip pullover will look classy when paired with dark jeans and dark brown boots.

Winter-Cozy Wonderland

Most couples don’t consider taking their engagement photos in the wintertime. But the ones that do almost always walk away with charming, snow-capped photos that are whimsical and wonderful. Slightly retro outerwear – like fur-trimmed winter boots, a cable knit cap, and other cozy accessories – will add a timeless quality to engagement photos taken in the snow. For him, consider a weathered anorak jacket and jeans. For her, a chunky sweater and jacket with accent pieces like a hat, scarf, or fur vest.
