Alright, ladies, we know it can be pretty agonizing to decide what to wear for your engagement session. One of the awesome perks of being a Hope & Stay Couple is exclusive access to my super-detailed Engagement Session Style Guide, but this post is for everyone; we all need a little help, right? ;)
I always suggest my couples bring two outfits to their engagement session: one casual and the other a little more formal. This helps create two different looks and a lot of variety in your engagement portraits!
One suggestion I make in my exclusive client Engagement Session Style Guide is to consider renting something to wear. Yep, you read that right, you can rent high end straight-off-the-runway dresses to elevate your engagement session style. Imagine how amazing you'll feel in a super gorgeous outfit, cuddled up with your honey during your engagement session! One of the keys to having great portraits is feeling ultra confident and comfortable in what you're wearing.
I've put together a list of my TOP TEN FAVORITE rentals from Rent the Runway's 2018 collection that are around $100 OR LESS to rent for your engagement session.
No matter what you decide to wear for your engagement session, the bottom line is that you should feel comfortable and confident. Listen to your photographer's tips about what photographs well and use them as a guide to make a great selection for you, your body type, and your style.
My final tip is to start shopping early! My engagement sessions are typically scheduled about two months from your booking date. Don't wait until the last minute to start trying things on and finding what you like. Give yourself time to find what suits you and your style. Low stress is the name of the game, gals!
