Most brides don’t have the luxury of hiring a professional stylist when it comes to their engagement shoot, but with a little bit of creativity you and your husband-to-be can be the most stunning couple on and off camera. It’s always best to bring at least five outfits for each of you so that you can have a variety of choices. Always keep in mind that when it comes to your choice in outfit, it should be appropriate for your chosen location. For example, you won’t be wearing a bikini in the middle of a forest would you? Unless you are sticking to a medieval theme, then your outfits should be more or less simple and well-coordinated with each other, but not too “matchy” with each other.

Do you remember the day when your husband proposed to you? Relish that moment, and with that thought in your mind, just exude that light and love to your husband and to the camera as well. If you want to highlight your engagement ring, you should wear less accessories and stick to classic ones like a pair of pearl earrings. When it comes to your outfits, avoid busy patterns and really loud colors such as reds and oranges as it may overwhelm the whole color scheme of your shoot.
Since you’re ready with your wardrobe, your attitude as a couple should also match. Be comfortable and candid with each other. It might take a while to get used to the camera but your engagement photos will be phenomenal when you just work together to just naturally show off your chemistry.
