Engagement photos can be a lot of things — from super cheesy, to awkward and forced. Lots of the ideas on Pinterest can end up looking like the opposite of natural and stylish in real life, but with the right inspiration (and the right look), you can make sure that your pictures will turn our charming and timeless.
The first step? Making sure your outfit speaks to your personality in an elevated and tasteful manner, ensures your pictures will be just as special as the union ahead. We rounded up our favorite ideas from 5 style bloggers that you can make your ownfor your engagement photos.

This look from Margo and Me's Jenny Bernheim is the most traditional but still feels very fresh. The black mini dress paired with a detachable lace Peter Pan collared shirt is the perfect way to update basic little black dress.

This full Gucci look is more editorial than what you normally see in engagement photos, but there's still a way to pull it off if the look is too much for you. What makes this outfit so fun is the festive nature of metallic mixed in with floral. Try a trendy metallic pleated skirt with a blouse for an elevated alternative to plain blouse and black skirt. Perfect for a holiday-themed engagement shoot.

If you want to wear all black and are looking for something modern, a black pant suit with off the shoulder detailing may be just what you're looking for. Take note of Pernille's simple jewelry, black heels and accent red lip that complete her sleek look. Easy to replicate and timelessly sophisticated.

Sofie's striped maxi dress is a nice alternative to a neutral dress, and is great for the bride who wants to look more dressed up than casual. We recommend pairing with a colored heel, lipstick, and chandelier earrings.

Sequins are another way to add something cheerful to your engagement photos without straying too far from the favorite pieces in your wardrobe. We love the unexpected pairing of the off-shoulder blouse paired with sequin pants and gold accessories that gives off a chic evening look vibe.
