I’ve been photographing couples in love for years, and “what do we wear?” Is my most asked question when we are prepping for their engagement session! So I rounded up my favorite AMAZON finds that would look amazing in photos for the spring and summer months!
The best part? most of them are Prime!
I usually recommend couples to wear one “fancy” outfit and one that’s more of a date night outfit. I’ve been married for 5 years now, so my date night outfit is sweats and a top knot, but that’s not what I mean when I’m instructing my couples on what to wear 😂. Think more of a cute dress and statement earrings.
I also recommend having at least one flowy dress! Dresses that have a lot of movement photograph so beautifully, and they twirl so naturally.
With all of these things in mind, here are some outfits I’ve rounded up for my peeps 🤗 All of these have direct links (listed below the image in green) to the products so you don’t have to waste time searching! (FYI, I have not ordered all of these from Amazon for myself (I’ll tell you which ones I did and LOVE) but they all have wonderful reviews and real photos on amazon! A lot of them have free returns or try-ons!)
