Outdoor Engagement Session Outfits

Often engagement sessions happen near a lake or a field or a mountain - all beautiful places, but also places where a formal dress just doesn't make sense. I would love to see couples dressing to match the environment they've chose for their engagement photos. If you want to wear a cocktail dress and heels, have your session in a downtown or urban type environment. 

This is a collection of outfits (some even with links!) that I would love to see at engagement sessions set in outdoor environments.  

 This flowy outfit would look amazing in a field at golden hour or at an in-home session. Sitting, standing, running around would all be feasible - and most importantly, not look out of place.  Pants:  Elizabeth Suzann

 If someone showed up to an engagement session wearing this outfit, I would be over the moon. The way the material flows with movement would be captured so beautifully on film. Also, the simplicity of it would make the focus on the people - their interactions, emotions and connections, rather than a busy pattern.   Eileen Fisher

 Unfortunately I don't have a source for this red shirt dress, but it's a great source of inspiration. If you want to add color to your engagement session outfit, do so in a way that  adds  to your figure. So often I'll see girls in tight dresses that don't flatter in a pictures. Stick with flowy, just trust me!

 If you're not looking to break the bank, check out  Piper and Scoot . They have incredibly affordable dresses that are flowy, cute and would look perfectly normal in pictures just about anywhere. I might be a broken record at this point, but just don't wear a cocktail dress in a field! It doesn't make sense and will look out of place!  Dress:  Piper and Scoot
