We didn’t bring multiple outfits because we were outside in the middle of nowhere.  I bet people probably changed in public restrooms.

We took 2 outfits at the suggestion of our photographer. There were public washrooms on site so we changed there 🙂

We changed in the car.  I just think when you have that many pictures taken together, its nice to not be in just one outfit – change it up a little bit.  You can put the same pair of jeans with a couple of different tops and completely change the look of the outfit; It doesn’t take much.

We were shooting or an hour and only had one outfit.  When I looked at the pictures I didn’t feel like there wasn’t enough variety.  Now if you’re taking pictures for a good 3 hours, then I’d look into mixing up your outfits a little.

We only had one outfit, and our pictures turned out great. I would not feel comfortable changing in the car or in a public restroom, and neither would my fiance. I don’t think that only having one outfit takes away from the experience at all.

We didn’t. It was a quick trip with a friend so we weren’t concerened about that. = ) We did some with and without jackets so that broke it up a little. I loved the pictures we got that day!

We’re only having one outfit. FH is big into sailing/boating so we are doing our session in Charleston Harbor out on the water on one of his boats. It doesn’t really make sense for us to change outfits. That being said I change my mind at the drop of a hat so I may add another session which would mean another outfit!!

We get our photographers for the afternoon so we’re doing the first outfit/location with our dog, then running him home and changing outfits, then a second outfit/location later in the evening. I love that we can do more casual outfits while hanging out in a park with our dog and then switch it up into something a little more dressy at night.

we had our first “set” at our house with our dogs… in our “casual outfits” so before we left for the small town downtown area we shot at, we changed at our house into our business casual outfits.

halfway thru downtown we changed in FI’s car (he’s got dark tinted windows all around)… it was a sunday afternoon in an empty parking lot by a small gift shop away from the busy dtown area.

our photogs were impressed! 😉

Everyone doesn’t, but a lot of people do!  And I agree, I think it adds to the variety.  My suggestion is layering–wear one pair of pants (or bring a skirt/dress you can slip on over them and then pull them off!) and a tank top that you can layer over.  Tell your groom to wear one pair of pants, a white tee (or wife beater, whatever) and change shirts over it.  Should make car changing especially easy, or even out in the open.  But then, I’m also a master of changing clothes in public.  I’m basically Tobias Funke, nevernude. 🙂

We brought a second outfit (planned to change in the car) but ended up shooting for 2 hours in the same outfit and never changed. No regrets here.

I didn’t.  Like others said, there was no place to change.  We were outside at a public park.
