What to Wear for Guys Senior Pictures

The question I get asked all the time is “What to Wear for Guys Senior Pictures”. Well, guess what? I have some good news for you! You may see most of my website showcasing the ladies, but don’t be fooled.. I love to photograph the guys just as much.

When you’re thinking of what to wear for your guys senior pictures, it really comes down to what is your style and what do you feel the most comfortable in?

Be “YOU”

One of my things that I say, time and time again, is that if you would wear it to Target, don’t wear it for your senior pictures! No, but seriously, you should choose a mix of styles that are you but also photograph well. When you’re deciding what to wear for guy senior pictures, I have a few suggestions. How about something that is more laid back and casual? For instance, a pair of your favorite jeans with a graphic tee, hoodie, and your favorite sneaks. Next, plan an outfit that is a little bit more polished say some thing that you would wear to a nice dinner or even a semi-formal dance. A super easy outfit is to incorporate something from your high school experience like your football helmet and jersey or even a full uniform.

If you have a favorite color, go ahead and incorporate it into your looks, but I highly recommend having some variety. Mix it up from outfit to outfit so you’re not basically wearing almost the same thing in every shot. For instance, if you like rich deep tones, go ahead and wear an all black outfit (like the pics shown below), but mix up the STYLE. If you’re wearing black jeans with a black hoodie, then in the next outfit, mix it up with the same black jeans but paired with a dress shirt. The overall look and feel of those two outfits will be completely different.
