So, my FI and I won (!) our engagement photos (from the photographer we are hoping to go with for our wedding, so very helpful!), but now I am between three outfits..
Outfit One- Jeans, Red Cardigan
Outfit 2- Blue Dress (I think I look too boxy and straight in this one- but my FI likes it.)
Outfit 3- Red Sweater and Greenish Mustard Dress (an odd combination, but I think I like it…)

I showed this to my BF and he thinks #1. I like #1 too, and you’re more comfortable in it than #2, so that’s a plus. But maybe a cute jacket would work better than the cardigan because it looks like the cardigan might bunch up as you’re posing.

I like the blue dress! The mustard dress is cute too.
Sorry no jeans for me. I think jeans are so boring to look at in special photos.
The random blue bucket and the empty bottle lying around are interesting also.

@misscakeandtea: I really like the ruffled part of your mustard dress! I think the reason why outfit 1 doesn’t work is because the neckline is a little boring and flat. I wish you had the mustard dress in a different color though. I don’t know if that color would photograph well with your skin tone. I think you definitely need something brighter or darker.
Ultimately, I voted for outfit 2. I think the red sash defines your waist and the navy looks great with your complexion. I don’t think you look boxy at all!

I think all of your outfits would look much nicer without the belt:)

I think that the blue looks best on you – especially if it is bright out or you are going to a beach – I’m rather fair too and I always feel washed out in pastel colours in photos

@gramgeek: Hahaha… The bottle is the only “toy” our cat will play with, and the bucket is our clutter bucket… It was the best wall to take photos on… Should have moved them in hindsight!!

Red cardigan and mustard dress is ADORABLE!
Detailed prints don’t photograph well and may hurt a shot and draw attention away from your face.
Simple one colored pieces are the BEST way to go. #3 all the way!!

Definitely definitely the mustard dress combo! It’s more fashion forward than the other looks, but still manages to be classic and timeless. I plan on wearing a similar dress/cardigan combo for my engagement pics 🙂
