Getting engaged is only the beginning of a long journey leading up to your big day; and among the multitude of things that will be on your to-do list, scheduling your engagement photos is an important action item. Your engagement photos will likely be used for your save-the-dates, wedding website, and elsewhere in your celebrations, so putting time and effort into capturing the best images is of the utmost importance. What’s more, along with deciding on what to wear for this moment, you also have to decide how you’d like to style your hair.
Luckily, an engagement shoot is not as formal as traditional wedding photos, so you don’t have to wear your hair the same way you would for your nuptials (though some brides do book their hair and makeup trial on the same day as a test run for their desired bridal look). Oftentimes, many brides go for a more relaxed yet sophisticated appearance, but ultimately, this choice is personal and there are no beauty rules to follow. No matter your engagement hairstyle, it should make you feel confident and help you leave your photo session with portraits that you’ll love for a lifetime.
For those searching for a bit of inspiration, we’ve put together some of our favorite hairstyles for engagement photos below. Take a look, maybe try something new, and don’t forget to smile!
