    Yes, it is a little plain. Can you add a fun printed scarf or something? That would look amazing and really pull it all together.

    Something like this:

    Also, there really isn’t such a thing as being too over dressed for you own engagement pictures. A yellow sundress would look fabulous too!

    I like the above suggestion of a scarf. Depending on your style, maybe a statement necklace or a headband instead? Something that’s a focal piece that adds a color pop and accentuates your favorite features.

    @krj:I agree with PPs – accessories over a different shirt. You can change a look completely just throwing on a scarf! I would reconsider the color choice for where you’re having photos done. Yellow in a rustic atmosphere (wheat fields, farms, etc) may get lost since everything else in the photo is going to have those same tones. I love yellow for city-scape shoots (it looks amazing against grays and blues in a downtown area) but I always suggest couples go for cooler or at least bolder in more vintage, rustic settings. Think burnt orange, or cooler colors like blue or purple. This will compliment your surroundings rather than match.

    Rustic doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a dress. When I picture that setting, I think of a beautiful vintage-print dress. Sun dresses and barns/fields go together really well!

    @Gingersnap:  I love the scarf idea and I LOVE the dress!

    @krj:  My engagement shoot was in a park- very laid back- and I wore a dress.  I love the idea of “rustic” with a dress- I am a photographer and I have modeled- and I have done shoots at an old farm with dresses- I find it charming.  I agree with crayfish.

    I agree with PPs- as soon as you described your shoot location I thought of some kind of flowy, casual dress.

    @krj: I would never wear what you’re wearing in the setting you described. I would wear a dress and inapproriate heels that I would be sinking in the ground in πŸ™‚ I don’t own a t-shirt either, except one’s for sleeping in. So hence, we are different.

    I am saying this becuase if you would never normally wear something like what we are all describing, then dressing the way that we are all suggesting isn’t going to make sense to your friends and family in the pictures. Trust that what you have chosen is good for you.

    A quick basic suggestion on a dress though if you change your mind

    @krj:  You are welcome!  See how they are in rustic settings?

    I would strongly suggest do NOT wear capris. Capris are not flattering on anyone, no matter whether you’re 90 pounds or 500 pounds, 4’5 tall or 7’0 tall. They cut up the leg line and make everyone’s legs look shorter and wider than they are.

    Love the dress that Gingersap suggested. The scarf is very prety too, just make sure the scarf doesn’t add unwanted bulk.

    Really keep in mind that you’ll want to wear something that you feel comfortable and pretty in. If you’re uncomfortable, that will come through in the photos.
