Congratulations you CUTIES! Engagement pictures are a fun way to celebrate the exciting news, but deciding what to wear is arguably the hardest part of the process. To get the best Colorado engagement pictures possible (assuming you’ve made the badass decision to take pictures in our beautiful state), here are some tips I always give my couples.
If you scroll through my Instagram or blog, it’s pretty obvious my couples are the baddest, most unique people around. I’m obsessed with all of them. When it comes to your engagement photos, they should 100% reflect who you two are as individuals and as a couple. If sequins make you happy, wear them. If Vans and leather make you feel like a bad bitch, wear them. Plz try and avoid logos though – we don’t want your engagement pics to look like an ad.
If you’re still feeling lost, go with muted colors like burgundy, navy blue, khaki, white, and black. They look great on camera and usually compliment any skin tone. Whatever you decide on, always always always pick what you feel good in. If you’re not comfy, it’ll show in your photos.
Most of my Colorado engagement sessions are long enough to accommodate two outfits, which is great if you’re having a hard time deciding on a fit! When we’re going over details of your shoot, let me know you’ll want to do a quick change so we can plan accordingly.
Two outfits means two vibes, and it’s always fun to see what my couples come up with. You can do something a little more casual and then switch it up for something more vibrant or flashy. I have this fun pop-up changing room I can bring that makes it super easy for you to have privacy.
If you’re taking engagement pics in an adventurous spot that requires hiking, make sure you wear something that’s comfy to walk in. You can always wear something better suited for hiking and then change shoes once we get to your location. Always check the forecast when planning, too! A cute sandal isn’t gonna go well if we’re up in the mountains – even in the summer, there will still be snow up there.
For my besties traveling to Colorado for their engagement pictures, pack smart! If you’re bringing any kind of dress, I’d recommend packing a handheld steamer or confirming your hotel/Airbnb has an iron so you can get rid of any wrinkles. Garment bags are also great if you’ll be hiking to your engagement picture location. Just throw your clothes in and we can carry everything up for you to change into.
The moral of the story here is to wear what feels best to you. If you hire me for your Colorado engagement pics, I’ll give you a handy guide that has even more tips and a breakdown of what to expect during your session. Speaking of engagement pics with Kenzie, an engagement session is always included in the price of your elopement package! Only want me to shoot your engagement photos? That’s cool too.
