So, let me guess: you’re planning for your upcoming engagement session and have NO idea what to wear😅 I have been there. As a full-time wedding and couples photographer (and past bride), I know how overwhelming and daunting the decision can be. By the end of this blog, you’ll be feeling confident and ready to take some incredible engagement photos with your love. Alright, let’s get into my styling tips for your engagement session.

DRESS FOR COMFORT

This one might seem like a no-brainer but WOW does it make a difference. Wearing something that you feel comfortable in makes the world of difference. Even if you want to buy something new for your photos, try to “break it in” by wearing it a couple times and moving around in it. In my engagement sessions, I love for my couples to be able to move around – whether that’s running, going in for a dip, or twirling around. 

THINK NEUTRALS

When pairing outfits with your honey, keep in mind that neutrals (or earth tones!) photograph really well. Especially if you really want to compliment that location of your photos, wearing those tones will help you stand out but not clash with the environment. 

LET’S TALK PATTERNS

Fun fact: patterns are not the enemy. I love a good floral print as much as the next person. My biggest tip is to choose subtle patterns – and avoid clashing! 

LAYERS, LAYERS, LAYERS

I love a good layering moment. Packing or wearing layers allows you to ✨spice up✨ your photos without having to do a ton of outfit changes. 

Now that you are set with some styling tips for your engagement session, all there’s left to do is pop some bubbly and get ready for your session 🥂

Alec and Athena’s Long Lake Regional Park fall engagement session in New Brighton, Minnesota was full of so much love and personality. This couple was so giddy and in love; I couldn’t stop beaming ear to ear during their shoot (also, their outfits were INCREDIBLE. You need to check out Athena’s dress… wow).

You wouldn’t know it by looking through these photos, but their session was so cold and windy. Despite the chill in the air, the leaves were changing colors on the trees and the grass in the open field was a beautiful golden tone – making for such a picturesque Fall engagement session. Alec and Athena weren’t afraid to be themselves in front of the camera, which made my “job” so much easier! 

At the end of their session, they told me they brought some merch from their favorite YouTuber (Danny Duncan) to showcase their personalities and what they love. I love how unapologetically “themselves” they were throughout the entire session. Once we wrapped up their session, I hopped into my car feeling so giddy to have spent the afternoon capturing this sweet couple’s love story.

Is there anything better than connecting with a couple and instantly hitting it off? ShyAnn and Brett had me hooked from the second we talked. This sweet couple originally booked me for their wedding in Colorado – and I was so giddy. As soon as I was booked for their wedding day, I received an email from ShyAnn asking if I would come out to Colorado for their engagement photos as well. And let me tell you, I couldn’t have possibly responded quicker to her email. She sent me a list of possible locations, but we settled on Moraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park for their adventurous engagement session.

Before I knew it, my assistant (AKA my sweet hubs) and I landed in Colorado to begin this incredible session. Marine Park was the perfect location to capture ShyAnn and Brett’s adventurous souls. We started the session in this beautiful, sprawling grassy field with the mountains in the background. The love between these two was just so evident, and made shooting a breeze. We found a little stream which made for the perfect playful photos. Speaking of playful, I am always down for a classic champagne spray. My favorite part of our day together was actually how the champagne popping came to be. 

The sun was beginning to set behind the mountains when we were gearing up for the iconic champagne popping/spraying. We were in the middle of a road, with cars coming towards us, when Brett grabbed the champagne for the shot – I was not about to miss this shot! Although we might’ve stopped traffic, we took some incredible shots. We ended our session with an outfit change and some cold ones to truly capture the personalities of Brett and ShyAnn. After we wrapped up, we all went out for ice cream (if that’s not a dream ending to your engagement session, I don’t know what is). 

Couples like ShyAnn and Brett remind me just how lucky I am to have this job. Connecting with sweet clients from half-way across the country warms my heart and fills my soul to the brim.

Thank you, my sweet friends, for letting me live out my dream.

Xx, Morgan
