Style Inspiration: What to Wear For Your Engagement Photos

Natasha writes, “Greetings! My fiancee and I are taking our engagement photos in a few weeks. Any suggestions on what to wear? Our photos will take place near a lake.”

Congratulations, Natasha! When I think of engagement photos, two words come to mind: fresh and simple. You don’t want too much going on with your outfit, as these photos are about you, your fiance, diamond engagement rings , and the beautiful love you share. However, that doesn’t mean you should give up style! I suggest a flattering, airy, feminine dress like this one from Z Spoke by Zac Posen. It has enough detail to make the dress interesting without being overwhelming. You’re going to be by a lake, so there will probably be lots of grass: wear some wedges so you don’t sink in the dirt! These Alexander McQueen peeptoe wedges add a pop of color have a unique shape which again, gives this simple look some subtle stylish flair. I love these Tarina Tarantino Merchant Stone earrings, which will look great on camera! For makeup, I’d go with a natural look: save the glam for your wedding! The wildly popular Urban Decay Naked Palette is a great way to play up your natural beauty!
