Here we are in 2019! Smack dead in the middle of winter, too. Congrats to all the couples who got engaged at the end of 2018! If you're considering booking your engagement session during the chilliest months of the year, have no fear — the cold season is a perfect opportunity (and excuse) to be close and cuddly with your significant other. You can stay warm and look amazing without your entire session being photographed solely in your coat.
With the added cold, choosing your outfits for your engagement photo session can be difficult. Here are suggestions to help you stay warm and stand out.
Choose a Color Palette
When we think winter, we think Navy blues, Pine greens, Cranberry deep reds, Sugar Plum purples and of course the classic Snow White. There are typically three ways to match your color palette for your outfit: complimentary, analogous and triadic.
Complimentary colors are your primary and secondary colors that work well together. Analogous colors are three shades of the same color (similar to a gradient). Triadic colors are the colors spaced out in between that form a triangle on the color wheel. Triadic colors often create a bold look — think fuchsia and turquoise. If you're a minimalist, wearing a neutral color like grey and adding a pop of color here and there works out well, too!
