Engagement photos are the first thing friends and family anticipate seeing after you’ve announced your happy news (and shown everyone the ring, of course). Oftentimes, these images will also be what you use for save-the-date announcements and other events along the exciting road to saying, “I do.”
So how do you decide what to wear to document the happy moment that started it all? There’s a lot to consider, including the fact that you’ll have these photos forever—no pressure or anything! To help, we’ve rounded up 12 stunning engagement shoot outfit ideas, and the pieces to shop them, so you can knock your photos out of the park.

The high-contrast look of black and white always looks impossibly chic on camera, especially when the pieces involved are crisp, tailored, and borrowed from the boys. For a sophisticated downtown ensemble, try high-waisted black denim with a dolman-sleeved white silk top like The Glamourai's Kelly Framel, or go slightly more playful with a suspender dress over a sweet lace blouse a la Ring My Bell's Ashley Madekwe.
Could I Have That
Don't be afraid to wear all white in advance of the big day, since your engagement shoot outfit is another way of expressing your bridal style. We love the edge of a white leather jacket over a raw-hem linen dress, and the dramatic impact of a monochromatic crop top and high-waisted trousers.
