It can be tough picking out the perfect outfit, but we are sharing our favorite engagement photo fashion trends!

Florals bring a lot to the table  — print, color and texture. It can be overwhelming if you don’t know what to look for, so we suggest that finding neutral colors or smaller patterns can help balance the design with the landscape. With florals, you have plenty of room to roam.

Don’t Forget the Desert

Living in the desert has its perks, one of them being the fact that we can wear cacti on our clothes AND see them outside. We suggest you find an adorable cactus shirt to wear for any casual-cute photos you want to take. Cacti will surely bring the vibes of your desert home to any location you choose for the shoot, even in chilly Flagstaff.

Show Some Sheer Genius

If you’re looking for a way to spice up your shoot, bring a dress with a sheer skirt, or a top with an illusion neckline or sleeves. Illusions also offers some protection from extreme heat, and can include little details like sequins or lace for some added drama.

Gone with the Wind

Flowy dresses are an engagement session staple for good reason. These wispy and billowing gowns instantly take your images to the next level. If you are looking for a more formal look or a hint of romance, flowy dresses are a must!

Get the Skinny

Skinny jeans that is! If you’re looking to bring big city class to the sunny Southwest, wear a cute peplum top with some sleek skinny jeans. Or add a hint of country with a plaid flannel.

Be Cool in Booties

Sometimes, all you need is a giant fuzzy sweater and a cute pair of boots. For outdoor adventurers or ladies who just don’t like the cold, adding warm hiking boots can be perfect for a northern Arizona engagement session. If you’re looking to take your photos in someplace a bit warmer, cute heeled booties will do the trick as well, and will give you some added height if your man is one of those vertically blessed humans.

No matter where you take your engagement photos, know that there are trends to fit each person, and you can be sure you’ll look fab from head to toe while commemorating your special moments.
