Our engagement pictures are finally here!! (We got engaged in September 2013 so I've been eagerly waiting for quite some time.) With my crazy work schedule, I haven't even thought about what to wear in the pictures. FH is easy - jeans and a nice polo. But I have NO idea what I should wear! I'd love to see some pictures form you all to get some ideas Smiley smile

Here's a pic from our photographer at the location we will be at.

    We went to a local garden in my hometown. I went with bold colors but only because FH picked my outfit. I am so happy I listened to him because the colors really pop in the pictures. This is something we would wear any typical day - so my suggestion is wear something comfy and YOU.

    I wore two different outfits, FH brought three different shirts but ended up staying in the first one.

    I LOVE that your FH picked out your outfit, Alysha! He sure made it easy for you - and your dress looks perfect!

    I was thinking of doing something similar to you, Monana - one dress outfit and one jeans outfit. We are bringing our dog with us too Smiley smile

    We had two outfits. One to show off our love for superheroes.

    We went to a local park that also had a rose garden and a beach. I wore a black top and jeans and he wore a plaid shirt that was blue, black and white & jeans to match my outfit. Then we had another outfit. Mine was jeans with a pink, black and white shirt and his was jeans with a black polo. Not dressy but not jeans and tshirt thing.

    That field is so pretty! We had two locations, one was in the Old Town part of the city so we chose to go more casual. We also took pictures in a field and went for a more romantic look. Smiley smile

    We did ours in a similar location to yours. I would suggest two outfits. One with colours so that it pops and the other- dark/bold strong, solid colours.

    I don't have our photos yet, but we brought 3 outfit changes each:

    -Dressy: I had a lemon colored dress with a denim jacket and a bright blue statement necklace. FH had black dress pants, white dress shirt and a black,, grey, white and lemon striped necktie

    -Casual: FH had jeans with a black bowling shirt, I had black pants with a bright magenta shit and black and white statement necklace (also wore it jeans)

    -Sassy: FH had a distressed grey polo with jeans; I wore jeans with a purple wraparound tank top with a white underneath and layered silver necklaces.

    At one point FH had on a black tshirt and cargo shorts as well, which is how my "casual" outfit also got paired with jeans.

    TIPS:

    -Cute shoes! They will end up in some of the photos so makes sure they look nice too!

    -Don't be afraid to suggest locations too (a couple times it rained and we ended up having drinks in the bar and took some photos there)

    -Be yourself and wear things that you would normally wear...these are SUPPOSED to look like you!

    -Have fun with it and don't be afraid to get goofy

    -Bring water

    -Bring some makeup/hairspray to refresh things, especially if its hot

    -There is A LOT of walking around, if you wear shoes that hurt your feet, bring a pair of flip flops to slip on and off during the walking

    Our outfits probably won't help you since we took ours in the fall, but hey, a chance to show off engagement photos!

    We did a 20's, 30's theme. It was at my photographer's house. I wasn't so sure when she was telling my over the phone, but the location was beautiful and she had amazing props for us. I changed twice and put on a coat for a few.

    I still want to do some in regular clothes. Guess we'll have a do another shoot soon Smiley smile
