What to Wear for Engagement Photos | Minneapolis Wedding Photographer

Are you struggling to put together the perfect outfit for your Minnesota engagement photos? Help is here! As a Minneapolis engagement photographer, I have a few rules to help my couples decide what to wear for their engagement session. Before searching on Pinterest, consider these two questions: What will the weather be like on the day of your engagement portraits? Where do you want to go for your engagement session? Dress smart based on the answers to those two questions. You don’t want to wear a short dress and 6 inch heels if you want photos at Minnehaha Falls in February. You also don’t want to wear five layers and leather boots while walking around the Stone Arch Bridge in July. Choose your outfit’s style based on the weather and location. You also want to wear something comfortable! If those shoes hurt your feet, if those skinny jeans feel too tight, or that skirt seems too short- skip it! You want to be able to move around, have fun, and feel confident! So without further ado, here are the 5 basic rules to engagement outfits along with photo inspiration from real Twin Cities engagement sessions: Choose one formal outfit and one or two casual outfits. Wear layers. Coordinate with your partner’s outfit.  Add a pop of color. When in doubt, stick with solid colors. Avoid logos, graphics, writing, or patterns.   We hope you’re inspired to put together your engagement session outfits now! If you need help choosing your outfit before your session with Jeannine Marie Photography, feel free to text photos to me. I’m more than happy to be your fashion...

Laura and Ben had a beautiful Saint Paul Hotel wedding, full of romantic red roses. These two first met after a mutual friend set them up. The two eventually moved in together, and Ben popped the question with the help of their cat. He had tied the ring around the cat’s neck with a note that asked Laura to marry him. Of course, she said yes! The two chose the Saint Paul Hotel as their wedding venue because they loved the beautiful, comfortable atmosphere and that it was centrally located. Laura has loved the venue for a long time, so when Ben proposed, it was a no-brainer to book the Saint Paul Hotel right away!
