There’s nothing more classic than a turtleneck, flat brim hat, and booties. Both these looks can be easily layered so you can bundle up if you want to stay extra warm. They’re also timeless, so you won’t look back on the photos in 20 years and think, “what was I thinking?”

When we think of the holidays, we think of buffalo check plaid. We love that this couple incorporated the print in his scarf, while she kept the red color palette going with her peacoat. It’s the perfect way to complement each other without being too matchy-matchy.

Talk about handsome! These two paired tweed blazers with loafers and we think they look utterly dashing. This is a great example of mixing colors within the same color family for an overall cohesive look. Whether you love jewel tones, pastels, or neutrals, coordinating outfits will have you looking like the perfect pair.

Take a trip to the past with this 70’s inspired look. Think wide-leg jeans, colorful jackets, velvet, floral prints, striped sweaters and shirts, and lots of red, yellow, and orange hues. Put it all together and you have a look that is totally rad.

Engagement photos don’t mean you can’t rock jeans. Dress up your everyday closet staple with turtleneck sweaters, camel coats, or jackets with a fair isle print. It’s such an easy way to look laidback and cool.

This ensemble is another great example of what to wear for an indoor shoot. The floral jumpsuit paired with a wide-brim hat gives off a carefree boho look, while the camel coat paired with a button-up is a perfect mix of dressed-up yet comfortably casual. And can we talk about the fact that they’re wearing the same boots? We love the subtle matching.

Neutrals pair oh-so-well with the white powdery snow and these knitted outfits look extra cozy. If you’re going to opt for a dress with no tights or leggings, we highly recommend wearing a sweater dress that is going to provide you some warmth. And don’t forget to bring a nice warm jacket that you can throw on in between photos.

Jackets, boots, and beanies–it doesn’t get much more wintery than that. We love that these two wore similar beanies that added a pop of color to a neutral outfit. If you’re committed to shooting in the chilly temps, bring along a thermos of hot chocolate to help keep you warm–and it’ll give you something to do with your hands.

Are you and your significant other homebodies? If so, consider doing a cozy at-home session! Not only do you get to shoot in the comfort of your own home, but you can also wear sweatpants–it doesn’t get much better than that. Get a matching sweat set and whip up some pancakes while you capture the cutest photos.

Are the two of you outdoorsy? Then consider a look like this. Plaid is a print that is flattering on everyone, and it’ll never go out of style. Pair it with a muted color, like this brown sherpa jacket for an easy yet fashionable look.

You truly can do no wrong when it comes to comfy, cozy sweaters. The neutral colors look effortless when paired together, and we love that there’s a contrast between the light and dark.

It’s a well-known fact that black is the most flattering color. It also photographs really well. If the look feels too dark for you, brighten the fit up with a bold red lip and colorful accessories.

It’s not very often that we get to dress up in colorful dresses with our hair and make-up done. Why not use your engagement photos as an excuse to get glammed up? Bright red pops against the stark white snow, so you’ll stand out like the star that you are.

Are you the kind of person who’s always rocking band tees and chucks? Then stay true to who you are. You don’t have to get dressed up if you’re not comfortable. The band tee and chucks paired with the leather-trimmed jacket is an effortlessly cool look all around.

There’s no trend we love more than matching suits, and this couple completely nailed it. If you and your significant other love the finer things in life, or just love the idea of classing things up a bit, try out this power suit look.
