What to Wear: Engagement Photo Dresses


Engagement Photo Dresses

You’ve booked your photographer, and your engagement session is in the books. All you have to do is figure out what to wear!

Of course, that’s always easier said than done – especially with so many options out there. Where should you even start? So I decided to compile a list of some of my favorite places to buy engagement dresses! These also all work well for anniversary sessions, too.

Top Places to Shop



Rent the Runway



Show Me Your Mumu



J. Crew

Morning Lavender


Ted Baker

My couples all have the option of wearing one or two outfits at their session, and many decide to wear one formal outfit and one more causal outfit. For example, you might decide to do a formal length gown along with a pretty sundress. But it’s completely up to you! I’ve included a few photos below for more inspiration.

  1. Winter engagement photos are the perfect opportunity to get into the holiday spirit—after all, you have a lot to celebrate! To pull off a festive photo shoot, consider metallic embellishments when choosing what to wear. Monochromatic embellished pieces (like the gold sequin top above) will give your engagement photos just enough sparkle without becoming distracting. Have your fiance wear a dress shirt in a crisp solid color to complement your glittery outfit.
