Engagement Photo Shoot Outfits

Best Outfit Ideas for Engagement Sessions

As a San Antonio wedding photographer, I have seen many couples struggle with what to wear for their engagement photo shoot. Choosing the right outfit is important because it can set the tone for your photos and help you feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera. Here are some tips on what to wear and what not to wear for your engagement photo shoot:


  1. Dress comfortably and wear something that makes you feel good. You want to be relaxed and confident during your photo shoot, and that starts with wearing an outfit that you love.
  2. Coordinate your outfits with your partner. You don't have to match exactly, but your outfits should complement each other and look good together.
  3. Choose clothes that flatter your body type. If you're not sure what looks good on you, try on different styles and see what makes you feel comfortable and confident.
  4. Wear solid colors or subtle patterns. Bold prints can be distracting and take away from the focus of the photo, which is you and your partner.
  5. Consider the location of your photo shoot when choosing your outfit. If you're taking photos in a natural setting, earth tones, and neutral colors work well. If you're taking photos in an urban setting, bold colors, and modern styles can be a good choice.


  1. Avoid wearing clothing with large logos or graphics. They can be distracting and take away from the focus of the photo.
  2. Don't wear anything too trendy or fashionable that might look dated in a few years. You want your photos to be timeless and classic.
  3. Avoid wearing anything too revealing or tight-fitting. You want to look and feel comfortable and confident, but you also want to be tasteful and appropriate.
  4. Don't wear anything that clashes with your partner's outfit. It's important to coordinate your outfits so that they look good together.
  5. Avoid wearing anything that doesn't make you feel good. Your photo shoot is all about capturing the love and connection between you and your partner, and you want to be relaxed and happy during the shoot.
