If you are one of the lucky ladies who found herself getting popped the question this summer, chances are your days are spent with ironing out the dozens of details for you and your fiance’s special day.
We want to make one of those many acitivities just a little easier with a guide on how to style a fall engagement shoot.
The engagement shoot is one of the most fun things about the first few monrhs of an engagement– a time to get to capture the too-cute-for-words love that you and your significant other share during one of the most exciting times in your life.
Here are our best tips on styling a fall engagement shoot:

For example, a navy dress goes gorgeously with a white shirt, but looks a little off with a brown. Other color pairings that we love are camel and greens, greys and light blues, and maroons and creams.
- Show off your personality!
Wear subtle pieces that mean something to you. Maybe it’s a ring from your grandmother that you wear next to your engagement ring, or maybe it’s a gorgeous scarf loaned from your mother. These photos will be hung in your home for decades, so make sure that they pieces you choose are full of meaning.
- Clothes can serve as intimate props.
What is more cute than a fall date cuddling under a blanket by a lake or in the forest? Not much, but that doesn’t photograph easily! A shawl or wrap is a beautiful piece to take some shots of you and your man cozying together. This gorgeous 360 Cashmere oversized fringe sweater photographs really nicely in every color no matter what you and your cutie are wearing.
