There's so much to think about - where to have the wedding, what dress to get, where to honeymoon - but one of the first things on your list is engagement photos!

Check out our style guide to engagement photo outfits below for a little inspiration.


Go Monochrome

A wide brimmed hat is the perfect addition to you photoshoot, and adds such a fun, boho feel to your photos. Just make sure it doesn't cover your beautiful face in the photos!
