I am so excited to share these cherished engagement photos in Dallas, Texas, taken by my talented sister, Catherine Vigen.
My fiancé and I recently got engaged and we couldn’t wait to take pictures for announcements/save the dates.
My sister is a photographer, so we knew exactly who we would ask to take our photos.
This session was captured at two locations, Prather Park and Flippen Park. Both of these spots have a whimsical, outdoor vibe.
We decided to wear two different “looks,” with one look being more casual while the other one looked more formal.

What to Wear for Engagement Photos
What you wear depends on you and your style!
For me, I preferred doing a more “casual look” and as well as one “formal look.”
Keep in mind, that you are likely to use these photos on announcements and/or save the dates. Whatever vibe you are going for at your wedding should be considered. Whatever style you choose, just remember you start to set the “tone” of your wedding from the beginning.
That being said, if you are a bride who likes a rustic-style wedding, you may prefer a casual, outdoor vibe.
Perhaps you’re having a wedding in the city, in that case you could have engagement photos taken in front of the Dallas skyline such as at the West End Park Garage.
Nonetheless, follow these tips for picking out your best engagement photos outfit!
1. Wear What Makes You Feel Good
As the saying goes – look good, feel good! Wear what makes you feel your most confidently.
2. Aim to wear complimentary colors or styles.
When deciding on what you or your partner should wear, stick to solid prints and and complimentary colors. It is best to avoid matching outfits or matching patterns as these do not photograph as well.
3. Stick to a Color Scheme
By choosing a color palette, you can tie everything together in the photos. It will look very nice on camera.
4. Opt for Classic Rather Than Trendy Looks
You may love oversized blazers and baggy jeans right now, but as the years go by you may feel like the pictures look “so 2020s.” Instead, I recommend going for timeless pieces that will look good for years to come.
