What to Wear for a Fall or Winter Mountain Engagement Session

How to Choose the Best Fall or Winter Mountain Engagement Outfits.

Engagement photos are the best way to get those perfect photos for save-the-dates, engagement announcements, or wedding websites. But the age-old question stands, what do I wear!?!? When you book with me, your engagement session includes time for an outfit change. Most couples use this chance to change from a “dress to impress” outfit to a more casual one. When it comes to deciding what to wear for a fall or winter engagement mountain engagement session, there are a few things to consider.


Time of Year Matters!

I always tell my clients to think about the season that they want their engagement photos. DEFINITELY dress for the season. Choosing outfits that match the time of year is a great way to ensure timeless and beautiful photos that you will love forever! Warm fall colors, jewel tones, creams, and neutrals are great choices for your romantic fall or winter engagement session and will complement the location.

If you are dreaming of snowy photos, a pop of color is a great way to make sure you and your partner stand out. This session with Kyle and Kayla in Angelus Oaks, CA was perfect for a snowy engagement session. Kayla went with a beautiful copper corduroy dress that perfectly complimented Kyle’s Sherpa denim jacket.

Casual Fall or Winter Engagement Outfit Ideas

Always wear something that is comfortable for YOU!

As long as you are feeling confident in your outfit, you will feel comfortable and confident in your session. If your go-to outfits are dresses, then go for a velvet or corduroy dress for your fall or winter session. For a dreamy romantic look in the fall, you can’t go wrong with a velvet or midi-length dress. If your vibe is more simple, jeans, a sweater, and ankle boots will be the perfect choice for the perfect casual engagement photos.

Personalize your engagement session!!! It’s always a great idea to have layers that add to your outfit and make it a little more dynamic – like a jacket or a scarf, or even fun earrings. These denim jackets added such a perfect personal touch and unique element to these photos!

As you are deciding what to wear for a fall or winter mountain engagement session, think about a few things. 1) Think about the time of year that your engagement session will be and match pieces to the season. 2) Wear what makes you and your partner feel the best and choose pieces that match your style and bring YOUR personality to the session!
