I think you should try and coordinate but not match – if that makes sense. I personally think it looks kinda silly when the couple is wearing almost the same outfit. I’ve heard that it’s best to go with solid colors and not too much of a print if possible. Also, keep in mine you’ll be holding onto these pics for a while so pick outfits that are classic looking – not too trendy.

I’d probably bring a few options (if you’re doing at a studio where you can change). Personally I’d stick with maybe a black skirt or black pants and a cute tank top.

Good luck! and have fun 🙂

If you wear almost the same outfit, it looks like some kind of uniform (IMO).  You should definately coordinate, so that you wear things that go together – as colors that are too different, like one really dark/one really bright – are kind of distracting in photos.  I would agree with MsB that solid colors are generally best, again because you want the eye to be drawn to the face rather than the shirt or skirt.  In general I think you want people looking at the portrait to say "What a cute couple!  You look so much in love."  Rather than "Wow, where did he/she fine that skirt/tie/shirt?"

We chose the outfits ourselves. Except for the last one we had different outfits and different colors. You can check out our pictures at
