How to Be Well-prepared for Your Fall Engagement Photos

As the leaves change color and the weather cools down, it's time to think about your fall engagement photos. Fall photoshoot ideas are a great way to capture the season's beauty and celebrate your upcoming nuptials.

If you want to make sure your photo session goes smoothly, there are a few things you must do in preparation. In this blog post, we will give you tips on being well-prepared for your fall engagement photos.

When to Plan Your Fall Engagement Photos?

If you want your fall engagement photos to be taken in the most picturesque time possible, then you need to plan. Here are a few tips to consider when making the arrangement:

1. Decide When You Want to Take Your Fall Engagement Photos

The best time of year for some fall photoshoot ideas is typically September or October when the leaves are at their peak color. However, it's important to remember that the weather can be unpredictable during this time of year.

2. Weekends Are Often the Busiest Time for Photographers

If you're looking for more affordable rates or have a flexible schedule, consider booking your session during the week. You'll likely have more options regarding photographer availability, and you might even be able to snag some discounts.

3. Don’t Wait Until the Last Minute to Book Your Fall Engagement Photos

The best photographers often get booked up months in advance, so if you have your heart set on a particular photographer, it's important to start the planning process early.

What to Wear for Your Fall Engagement Photos?

Regarding what to wear for your fall engagement photos, there are a few things to keep in mind.

The Do’s

  • You can also accessorize with scarves, hats, and boots.
  • Think about the colors you want to wear. Fall is a great time to break out the jewel tones like burgundy, emerald green, and sapphire blue. You can also use more muted colors like cream, grey, and tan.
  • Patterns like plaid, stripes, and polka dots are great for fall. Just make sure your patterns aren't too busy and distracting in your photos.

The Don'ts

There are a few colors you should avoid wearing for your fall engagement photos, no matter the location.

  • Steer clear of all-white or all-black outfits. These can be very harsh in photos at times.
  • Avoid neon colors, brown, pink, or anything too bright. You want your outfit to complement the fall leaves, not compete with them.
