February 22, 2017 | nicole

When it seems like most of your brain cells are being used to plan your wedding, choosing outfits for engagement photos can be a chore. Whether you’re looking in your closet or shopping your favorite store, knowing what looks great in photos isn’t always obvious, especially when it comes to putting together cohesive looks for couple portraits. We know the ladies get most of the inspiration when it comes to engagement outfits, so this post is just for the guys. Check out our best tips for putting together outfits that feel as good on as they look in photos!

Do Coordinate, Don’t Match

Coordinating your outfits is one of the easiest ways to dress for your engagement photos. Keep the majority of your looks neutral and choose one element to coordinate. A few elements you can choose from are color, texture, pattern, or layering pieces.

Add a Blazer

A blazer can be your greatest weapon when it comes to dressing for your e-sesh. Having a top layer dresses up your outfit, and you’ve got a built-in second look just by removing it!

Elevated Simplicity

If your style leans more minimalist, choose pieces with visual interest. A textured sweater, unusual neckline or hem, or great looking pair of boots can take your look from basic to ballin’.
