When it seems like most of your energy is being used to plan your wedding, choosing outfits for engagement photos can feel like a chore. Whether you’re looking at pieces you already own or shopping around, knowing what looks great in photos isn’t always obvious–especially when it comes to putting together cohesive looks for couple portraits. That’s why we’re rounding up 9 engagement outfit ideas for guys that will help you feel inspired.

Engagement Outfit Ideas For Guys

If you’re taking your photos in the fall, you may want to consider layering. Weather can be a bit unpredictable, and being comfortable is key. Camel coats are a classic staple piece that photograph well, can be worn for years, and match pretty much any outfit out there. To keep it neutral, pair it with white or black, so your look is cohesive with your partner.

Shop this look:

Want something a little edgier? Opt for matching leather jackets and a plain white tee. It’s a look that will never go out of style, so you won’t look back at your photos years down the line and think about how dated your outfit was.

Shop this look:

It’s not very often that you get to dress to the nines, so use your engagement photos as an excuse! A tuxedo or suit looks oh-so-sharp in every setting. It’s also extremely easy to match.

Shop this look:

Nothing pairs with the outdoors better than flannels. If your session is in the mountains or forest, you’ll fit right in with this look. And the best part is that mismatched flannels surprisingly work together if you and your partner want to match. Just remember to stay in the same color family–i.e., blue and white, red and black etc.

For an effortless look, consider a jean jacket and a graphic tee. This works great for parks, coffee shops, big cities, or other everyday settings that you may visit on a regular basis.

Another option that is perfect for an outdoor session is a vest paired with a polo or sweater. Choosing neutral colors will help you blend in with your surroundings–without blending in too much.

Shop this look:

Engagement photos should be about showcasing your love for one another and your individual style. So if you’re always in Hawaiian shirts or printed button-ups, bring that into your photos. If you do choose to go bold, your partner should go with something a little more understated. Two bright colors or prints may distract from your setting if not done correctly.

Shop this look:

Want to match your partner without being identical? Stick to the same color palette like these two. The cream is the ideal neutral color that looks good on absolutely everyone and looks even better when outside against a desert or open field backdrop.

Last, but certainly not least, is the tried and true sweater and denim combination. Depending on the sweater that you choose, it matches everyone’s style and is extremely easy to match with. If your partner wants to wear something colorful, this helps balance out the photos, as well.
