What to Wear to a Beach Photoshoot

Looks like you’re planning a photoshoot on the beach– how exciting! Now, the toughest part remains . . . what are you going to wear!? It can be overwhelming to figure out what to wear for a beach photoshoot – but don’t worry! – that’s what we’re here for. Below we’ve outlined 5 tips on what to wear for beach pictures; you’ll look perfect in photos that will surely last a lifetime.

All White Never Fails

There’s something about the beach that draws folks to a whiter wardrobe. It makes sense seeing as white is the color choice that will keep you cool in the hottest of climates. We recommend white dresses, white polo shirts and white linen for your beach photoshoot apparel! A white wardrobe looks beautiful against the colors of the sand, water, and sky at the beach.

Bright & Bold

For those looking for photos with a bit more pop, try dressing in bright yellows, teals, or tangerine! These bolder colors simply scream summer fun, sunshine, and smiles. But be careful not to mix these colors with neons or patterns. Also keep in mind that brighter colors will overpower more muted colors so if you’re going to go with a bright yellow top, pair it with a white or black bottom.

Hide Those Tan Lines

Be sure to choose an outfit that will HIDE any dreaded or awkward tan lines. These lines can ultimately take away from a photo– no one wants that! The same goes for sunburn; be sure to lather on sunscreen days before your photoshoot if you plan on being in the sun. You don’t want to end up looking like a lobster!

Wear Hair Tied Back

Remember, things are generally a bit windier at the beach. Be sure you have something to secure your hair so that it’s not all in your face for the photos! Plus, a fun printed headband or neat hair clips can help add further interest to your overall look!

Pick Two Colors

If you’re having a family beach photoshoot or a bunch of friends, it can be a great idea to pick two main colors. Whether guys wear one color and girls wear another, or your kids wear one color while you and your spouse wear another, it’s a cute idea to coordinate while adding interest to your photos.

See? Picking out an outfit for your beach photoshoot doesn’t have to be stressful. In fact, it can be rather fun! We can’t wait to hit the sand with you and your loved ones to see what you’ve come up with. If you have any questions about your upcoming beach photoshoot or if you’d like to book one today!
