What to Wear {Springtime Engagement Session Guide}

Wondering what to wear for your springtime engagement session? With springtime engagement season coming up, I thought I’d create a “What to Wear” blog post with some helpful hints for choosing your outfits. As always, please ask if there is anything I can do to help you choose your outfits or if you need hair and makeup recommendations.

Springtime neutrals and flattering silhouettes inform the first styleguide. For ultra-flattering photos, try a flowy peasant dress, strappy beige shift dress, or contouring body-con with a mock neck and stripes. Pair with leather knee-high or ankle boots, slender heels, or ballet flats. Extra points for fun tassel earrings!What to Wear Women Neutrals

For a casual but fashionable session, opt for flattering high-waisted skinny jeans in a dark wash. Pair with a simple patterned top (like this gingham crop) and/or a comfortable, chic sweater. I love the color-play of a mallard greenknit with this structured mint bag.  Bring in neutral accessories like a suede clutch and booties or heels. Play with texture in shiny patent booties.
What to Wear Women Casual

A daring styleguide for the fashion enthusiast! Wide-leg denim and silk scarves/bandanas serve up ultra elegant photos that will read as timeless and chic. A gorgeous off the shoulder sun dress pairs well with a menswear inspired hat and playful sunglasses. Did I mention the sunny yellow lace crop top?!What to Wear Women Fashion Enthusiast

A blush palette plus dresses, dresses, dresses! This fun springtime style guide offers endless combinations between playful heels and sunset-hued dresses in four gorgeous cuts. An ochre peasant-style lace dress lends itself well to a meadow shoot, and the more structured longsleeve lilac dress to a fun city engagment session.

Classic white and navy pairings make up our first men’s spring style guide. Dress the look up with a silk handkerchief or down with black slip-ons. What to Wear Men Classic

This styleguide plays with grey tones and works well with any and all women’s springtime looks. Go with lace-up boots and a flannel for a casual look, or dress the look up with tailored slacks and sleek Chelsea boots. What to Wear Men Greys

This casual men’s styleguide combines the men’s white tee with two simple pant colors. Finish the look with vans or
converse for a relaxed shoot, or suede lace-up boots for more polish. What to Wear Men Casual

Play with my three favorite colors for menswear this spring: blue, grey, and tanned leather. Switch up the shirt game with a relaxed button henley or a short-sleeve dress shirt. Above-ankle lace-up boots and a classic black belt pair perfectly with slim, tailored slacks.
