What To Wear For Your Engagement Photos

It's an exciting time in your Wedding Planning and you've made it to scheduling your Engagement Photos with the expectation that your shoot will be epic.  But what to wear, where to go, how does it all work?  Here are 10 easy tips to set you at ease when thinking about your Engagement photo shoot.  Let's start with some commonly asked questions.

 

1.  WHERE SHOULD I GO AND WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

It's always a great idea to have a location or two in mind for your photo shoot.  Do you live near a waterfall or near a picturesque park?  Write down a few suggestions and be sure to coordinate your outfit for your location.  Your stilettos aren't going to work well on slippery rocks.

 

2.  SHOULD WE WEAR MATCHING OUTFITS?

It's trendy to wear coordinating colors that are complimentary but wearing matching outfits is considered a FAIL.

 

3.  HOW FITTED SHOULD MY CLOTHING BE?

Want to look great?  Super tight clothing or baggy just doesn't make the grade.  If you have a rocking hot body wear fitted clothing.  If you have some love handles that you want to minimize then layers flatter.  Baggy is out and so is skin tight.

 

4.  SHOULD I WEAR MY WEDDING COLORS?

Your Engagement photos have many uses, from Save The Date Cards, Gifts to Parent's and In-Laws, or for use as a personalized Guest Book.  Wearing your Wedding colors or a hint of the wedding colors helps to Marry your colors to your Wedding.  Very trendy!

 

5.  SHOULD I WEAR BRIGHT COLORS?

Wearing colors that compliment your skin tone and wedding colors are a hit.  Wearing super bright colors is definitely out.

 

6.  SHOULD I WEAR THE NEWEST PATTERNS?

We all love a great houndstooth pattern but it doesn't always look great in photos.  Close-up, maybe.  If you must wear patterns then make them BIG, but not too much.  Looking like wallpaper isn't trendy but pairing some patterns to solids is.  It's also advisable to not advertise your favorite brands.  Writing on clothing does not photograph well for Engagement Photos.

 

7.  SHOULD I BRING EXTRA SHOES?

You might be doing a great deal of walking so be sure to have a pair of comfortable shoes to change into.  Clothing that isn't your style or binds should be left on the hanger in your closet. 

 

8.  ARE MANY OUTFIT CHANGES RECOMMENDED?

Start out Dressed To Impress but bring a comfortable outfit that fits your style and personality.  Let it shine through.

 

9.  SHOULD I WEAR JEWELRY?

Adding tasteful jewelry can make you feel like a million dollars.  It's your turn to shine.

 

10.  SHOULD I POSE LIKE A MODEL?

Don't forget to be yourself.  Your clothing, accessories and your favorite place should all reflect on who you are.  Just imagine the fun you can have if you are comfortable with what you wear and where you wear it.  The camera loves a great smile.

 

I hope these Top 10 Trendy  Tips for What to Wear for your Engagement Photos were helpful.  Trendy shouldn't take you out of your comfort zone.

by Donna Brown July 23, 2018

If you are uploading a photo from a cell phone, please be sure to transfer the file in its highest resolution.  For example, on the IPhone, please transfer the file as "Actual Size".  Most files are compressed when transferred, leading to a loss of clarity and resolution. Transferring at the highest setting will provide better results.

Now just click the "Add to Cart" button for the product you desire, and your photo will automatically be uploaded to our production servers and electronically attached to your order.

Please note the following:

Uploading Image 
Files must be 20MB or smaller and jpeg format. The upload time will depend on the file size and your Internet connection speed. Please be patient when uploading a large image.

Please try to use the best-quality image possible.

Uploading from Cell Phone  
If you are uploading a photo from a cell phone, please be sure to transfer the file in its highest resolution.  For example, on the IPhone, please transfer the file as "Actual Size".  Most files are compressed when transferred, leading to a loss of clarity and resolution. Transferring at the highest setting will provide better results.

Best Size for Image
Depending on print area and size of your photo, minimum photo size requirements will vary. For best print quality your photo needs to be at 300 dpi. For example, if your photo is 3000 x 2400 pixels in size, it will print best at 10 x 8 inches or smaller.

Our photo editing process will inform you if your image is below minimum size.

Low-Quality Image
If your image is below the minimum resolution/size requirements, do not simply increase the size in your editing software. You must either rescan the image or use a higher-quality image.

Older Generation Phone Cameras
Please note that most older generation phone cameras will produce photos of very low quality that are too small for print reproduction. Photos downloaded from Facebook are also of lower quality.

Scanning Photographs
When scanning in photographs, please use a resolution of 300 dpi or more. When taking digital images, set your camera at the highest possible resolution. You can always reduce the resolution later. Low-resolution images cannot be increased without loss of image quality.

Cropping of Image
Your image will be reproduced as it appears. In some cases, we may crop the image for size, to fit the product you order. Close-ups and images with bright colors will produce the best results.
