There’s nothing more classic than a skirt and a turtleneck and a soft camel coat. Both 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?”

Are you and your partner super trendy and fashion-forward? If so, then you’ll love this edgy look. Just keep in mind that outfits like these do better indoors or in places where the weather doesn’t get as chilly. Engagement photos are all about capturing your love with your future forever partner, and if you’re uncomfortably cold, it’s going to show in photos.


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.



If you know the weather is going to be frightfully cold, there’s nothing wrong with bundling up. We love that this feminine printed puffer is paired with combat boots to give it a slight edge. And let’s face it, you can never go wrong with a leather jacket and white sneakers. You’ll be looking carelessly 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.


This look screams cuddling up in a coffee shop–and we love it. Sherpa denim jackets are an easy way to stay warm and add a casual touch to a dressy skirt. The hat and the brown hooded jacket give this overall look a relaxed boho look perfect for an easygoing couple.

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.

Puffer jackets, big scarves, and beanies–it doesn’t get much more wintery than that. We love that these two wore matching jackets yet incorporated different accessories. If you’re committed to shooting in the snow, bring along a thermos of hot chocolate to help keep you warm–and it’ll give you something to do with your hands.


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 a laidback yet fashionable look.


Who says you can’t dress a little sexy for your engagement photos? We love the big city vibes paired with the leather skirt, sheer blouse, bodycon dress, and over-the-top fur. Just keep a warm running car nearby!

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.


This is another great example of a lowkey, yet put-together look that will have absolutely everyone feeling comfortable. The beige stripes of her dress match flawlessly with his chocolate-colored pants, and all of it comes together to complement nature’s natural color palette.


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.



Is there anything more festive than fair isle sweaters? We don’t think so. Wear matching sweaters in different colors and winter boots for the ultimate holiday-ready look.



We love any reason to get dressed up in a sparkly dress, and we think it looks magical when combined with cafe lights like this. Paired with the button down and loafers, this look is just the right amount of glam.

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.
