What to Wear for your Editorial Hotel Engagement Photos

This particular engagement photo shoot was done at night with a heavy focus on flash photography to make it even more editorial and sexy.

Alejandra and Pablo’s Editorial Engagement photos are elegant and has a very fun sexy vibe to them. This was our intentional when we were in the planning stages.

Shopping for Bridal Outfits that fit your personality: What to look for!

Props, which are simply accessories that help tell your story are very important. In the case of Alejandra and Pablo we focused heavily on her white bridal sunglasses, shoes and the dress.

If you see the details of her dress, you’ll notice it’s simple, sexy and has some detail on the bottom that fit perfectly with the tropical vibe we were going for.

My advice is to think of these details and consult with your wedding photographer to help you bring out the vision.

Places to shop for your engagement photos:

  1. Revolve is a great place to start browsing for bridal dresses
  2. Another store with affordable prices and great options is Nadine Merabi
  3. I LOVE Anthropologie – They have options for the modern bride as well as the nostalgic and dreamy bride to be. Not to mention their variety in accessories.
  4. If you’re looking for editorial and fun, you might want to check out Lulus Weddings – They have a great selection for you to choose from with fun colors and patterns.

Tips for a Perfect Hotel Engagement Photoshoot

  1. Plan Ahead: High-end hotels often have busy schedules, so it’s crucial to book your photoshoot well in advance. Contact the hotel to understand their policies and secure the best locations within the venue.

  1. Coordinate Your Outfits: Choose outfits that complement the hotel’s aesthetic. For a cohesive look, coordinate your attire with your partner and the surroundings. Think elegant evening wear for grand ballrooms and chic, casual outfits for beachside shots.

  1. Leverage Natural Light: The right lighting can make all the difference. Schedule your shoot during the golden hours—early morning or late afternoon—when the natural light is soft and flattering.

  1. Incorporate Hotel Features: Make the most of the hotel’s unique features, whether it’s a grand staircase, a lavish chandelier, or a stunning view. These elements can add depth and character to your photos.
