Top Outfit tips for your Perfect Engagement Session

Pastels and neutrals are your best friends

When it comes to engagement outfit inspirations; nothing can match the dreamy vibes of pastels, neutrals, and muted hues. They look mesmerizing! These subtle colors create a classically timeless look and highlight the couple. To create a modern chic look, add a pop of bright color to the muted shades and voila, you are done! The soft and subtle color palette compliments the stunning outdoor locations.

Wear comfortable clothes for your engagement session

Comfort is the key    

For stunning engagement snapshots, choose outfits that are super comfortable to wear and make you feel like you. Let your photos be an embodiment of your personal style and aesthetics. Choose an outfit that reflects your persona and makes you feel comfortable and confident. You surely don’t want to be worrying about your dress during the entire photo session, right? Some couples prefer an all glammed-up formal look while some prefer a casual minimalistic style. Similarly, some couples love to go all funky with their engagement outfit while others love to keep it basic and neutral. It’s totally up to you!

Dress according to the location and season

Make a smart choice, think about the location and season while purchasing your engagement outfit, and plan accordingly. This will flatter your snaps and create a bespoke experience. If it’s a beach engagement photo session, opting for stunning flowy skirts or long frocks is an excellent idea. Do not wear small patterns for your engagement session.

If you wish to get your engagement session done while planning a hiking trip to the mountain area, consider carrying comfortable shoes with you. For a mountain-inspired engagement photo session, try to go with outfits that are neutrals or are inspired by tanning hues and merge well with the natural background.


Accessorizing your outfit can jazz up the whole look! Trust us. Wear a necklace, a bracelet, or anything that you like! Feel free to add an heirloom or a statement scarf, or put on a denim jacket with your names embroidered at the back. These adorable touches will help you to create a unique statement for your engagement look.

Focus on the colors and outfits that complement each other, instead of matching with each other. Your engagement snapshots will turn out to be amazing in the cohesive and well-complimentary color palette.


I hope this is a helpful tip. Personally, as a photographer, I like to do a zoom call with my couple and go over all the details with them and help them plan their dream engagement session.

If you are looking for a photographer that can help you, feel free to contact us and I would be more than happy to help you with finding your perfect location, outfit, and pose guidance.

We hired MKEshoots to photograph our wedding. We could not be happier with our decision. Murtaza is an amazing photographer and very easy to work with. He started collaborating with us well before our big day, working on a vision together. With the pandemic, he was flexible to changes to our wedding day and schedule the day of.

There are not enough words to describe how amazingly talented, creative he is as a photographer. From making you feel comfortable and breaking you out of your shell, to cracking jokes, with taking photos, angles lighting, being sympathetic and understanding, poses and so much more.

I have never enjoyed a photo session as much as this one. I am so in love with the photos and can’t believe we got so lucky to find him and for him to take care of us the way he did.

This man is one of the best photographers I have worked with. I have worked in the wedding industry for 4 years and haven't seen this much passion for his craft. When looking for a photographer for my own wedding I had high expectations and Murtaza exceeded all of them. His guidance and instructions throughout our shoot made for some of the best photos we have taken. 10 out of 10 would recommend to family and friend!!!

Murtaza is a super talented photographer and a very kind person. He did an amazing job with our engagement photoshoot; the photos will look beautiful in our wedding invitations. We especially loved how comfortable he made us feel, because we don't get photos taken very often. He made it feel more like a date for us instead of a photoshoot. It was very nice.
