What to Wear for Engagement Photos

Engagement photos are a great way to commemorate this special time in your life. Plus, you can use them for your save the dates!

This blouse has a romantic drape that oozes elegance. You can pair it with denim, leather pants, or trousers. Then, finish the look with your favorite pair of heels.

If you’re taking your engagement photos in a city, you’ll want to look sleek and sophisticated. L’Agence’s Freja Sleeveless Draped Blouse will help you accomplish just that. This sleeveless blouse has a soft, fluttery collar and billowed hem, making it perfect for engagement photos. You can wear it with cropped black trousers, or if you want to go full bridal, pair it with white pants or white denim. For shoes, we suggest a strappy heel.


Zadig & Voltaire Touchy Blouse

Zadig & Voltaire's Touchy Blouse

Are you taking your engagement photos on the beach? You’ll want something as relaxing and laid back as the scenery. We love Zadig & Voltaire’s Touchy Blouse. Pair it with linen pants for a genuine beach feel or light, cropped denim for a more polished look. Since this blouse is a button-up, you can wear it tucked in or opened with a camisole. Make sure you take advantage of the sand and go barefoot.


Smythe Stovepipe Pant

Smythe Stovepipe Pant

Every engagement photo shoot deserves a white pant moment. We love Smythe’s Stovepipe Pant. These mid-rise ankle-length pants feature a tapered leg, so you can pair them with whatever shoe is most comfortable for you. Better yet—you can wear them with any of the three tops we mentioned. If you were envisioning a head-to-toe white look, you can’t go wrong with these pants.


Commando Faux Leather Legging

Commando Faux Leather Leggings

Are you looking for a pant to wear with the L’Agence Freja Sleeveless Draped Blouse? Try Commando’s Faux Leather Legging.

Polo Ralph Lauren Floral Flare Jeans

Polo Ralph Lauren Floral-Print Jenn Flare Jeans are perfect for the Boho bride or someone who wants to make a statement with their outfit.

We think they’re perfect for photo shoots on the beach, in a field, or at a rustic, outdoor location.

Are you doing a lot of walking during your engagement photo shoot? You’ll want a shoe that can take you the distance. We love Colico’s Iris Heel. These gorgeous heels have three delicate straps which cross over the front of the foot and are mirrored by a fan effect of straps cupping the heel. They not only make the perfect shoe for engagement photos, but you could also wear them at your bridal shower and rehearsal dinner.

Another bootie you may want to consider for your engagement photos is the Dolce Vita Volli Ankle Boot.
