How do you find the right style for your engagement session? Do you go all out or keep it simple? I find the best engagement session looks stay true to each persons aesthetic, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go out of your comfort zone and dress it up. Clothes can really change the mood and give you confidence. Which brings me to my engagement photos. I still regret what I wore, which is probably why I’m on a mission to help those in need. I had one of those moments where you forget everything you know and walk out the door in jeans and a black shirt… which is not all that bad in and of itself but it really didn’t do anything for me. If I could do it again I would probably buy a dress, rent one, or borrow one from a friend if I was fresh out of college, pick some accessories that brought it all together, and encouraged Matt to do the same.
These days most couples choose to do two different looks so that not everything is fancy or casual. Some select one killer outfit that will work in all the settings. Either way, a successful engagement session can often come down to style. It’s pretty hard to not feel beautiful in a gorgeous dress.
I recently asked a few friends to help me come up with some spring / summer pinterest inspired engagement style boards, and they pulled some great options. Many thanks to Mary, Jamie + Lynda for contributing! click the images to go directly to the full boards and pin your own inspiration.
