I don’t know about you but I consider myself blessed to be living back on the Gulf Coast of Florida with some of the best backdrops for photography sessions! With the pristine white beaches and turquoise blue waters, what’s not to love living near these beaches? And the sunsets here are so magical!
I know for most of us though, planning our outfits for your engagement session can be a struggle. And if you are just vacationing here for your engagement session you have to make sure you can get your outfits ordered quickly before your trip! Hello, Amazon prime shipping! Lol.
The first list is from Amazon and is the most budget friendly and some are even in my client closet!

Your purchase helps support my work in bringing you content that helps get you the most out of your photograph session.
My first recommendation is to get a maxi dress with a side split in it. This creates the opportunity for the wind to pick up your dress and looking absolutely stunning in images! My favorite brand for these dresses is Shein and they have all different colors and designs! Here are a few dress options like this:
If you’re going for a more boho look try these two dresses! Paired with a cute hat it would be perfect for sessions!
I know a lot of you can pull off the crop top look and I’ve found some of the cutest skirt and crop top combos on Amazon too! Take a look at these below! A boho hat would also look amazing with these too!
And I know we can’t forget about the guys! For them I recommend a pair of slacks and a button up shirt that they can roll up to their elbows since it does get hotter here in Okinawa. We are usually in the water by the end of the session anyways so they have that time to cool off. I would definitely buy two though and bring to the session in case they are more liable to sweat through their shirts. I tried finding slacks at the Exchange but they didn’t have his size. So I bought these pants for my session with my husband on Amazon instead and he looked so fine in them! Haha! They have some in every color!
My other go to online website is Lulus.com . I love this site because they have higher quality dresses which fit more true to size (use the sizing chart and a measuring tape for the best fit) and they run a lot of sales so you can usually score a gorgeous dress for $60 or less! I’ve bought a few dresses for myself and a lot of my clients end up finding the best outfits for their session! Here’s a few pictures below from sessions. They actually rotate through a lot of products and different colors so no direct links but go check them out!
A newer website I stumbled upon is Asos. I actually bought one of my maternity dresses here for my own photography session and I loved the higher quality of the dress.
Comment below if you have ever shopped at one of these websites for photography outfits or if you recommend another place to look for outfits!
