What to Wear for a Photoshoot Outdoors: Best Outfit Matching Ideas

Coordinating outfits for a photoshoot can help create a cohesive and visually appealing look. When everyone in the photo wears similar colors or styles, it can help tie the photo together and make it look more put-together. This can be particularly important for group and family photos, where having everyone in coordinated outfits can help prevent any one person from standing out too much or clashing with the others.

Matching your outfits can also help set the tone for the photo shoot. For example, wearing bright and bold colors can make the photos feel fun and lively, while wearing neutrals can create a more subdued and sophisticated look. By coordinating outfits, you can help ensure that the photos accurately convey the mood or theme that you’re going for.

Finally, coordinating outfits can make the process of choosing what to wear for the photoshoot easier for everyone involved. When everyone knows what general colors or styles they should aim for, it can help eliminate any confusion or uncertainty about what to wear. This can help everyone feel more relaxed and confident during the shoot, which can ultimately result in better photos. Now, if you’re looking for an outfit inspiration, check out our tips that our clients typically go for:

Inspo #1

Coordinated Neutrals

Choose neutral colors such as white, beige, gray, or black and coordinate your outfits with your photo partner or group. For example, one person can wear a beige dress while the other wears a white shirt with beige pants.

Contrasting Colors

Contrasting colors, such as blue and orange or purple and yellow, can add energy and excitement to the photo, and make it stand out from others. They can also help to create separation between the subjects in the photo, making it easier to distinguish each individual.

Prints & Patterns

Wear prints or patterns that are not too busy or distracting. For example, a floral dress or a plaid shirt can add some visual interest to your photos.

Inspo #8

Tones of One Color

When everyone in the photo wears different shades of the same color, it can help tie the photo together and make it look more cohesive. This approach can also help eliminate any clashing colors or patterns that might otherwise be distracting in the photo.

Fancy outfits, such as formal gowns or suits, can help create a more elevated and polished look, which can be particularly fitting for certain types of photoshoots, such as engagement photos or wedding portraits.

Remember, even if you’ll be wearing your best dress, make sure that you are comfortable! Clothing that allows you to move and feel confident during the photoshoot is as important as having fun and smile upon your face. Don’t forget to also consider the weather and the location of the shoot when planning your outfits – a photoshoot in the rain is very romantic but it can get seriously cold.
