We are doing our engagement pictures tomorrow. I have a few outfits planned to wear – casual and more formal. The only problem? I got a cute sweater to wear with jeans and tall boots but it’s supposed to be 80 DEGREES here! Ahhh. Oh well. It’ll look cute.
Anyway, do any of you have any general tips? My photog is coming down here tonight so we can scout out locations. The forecast is warm and sunny for tomorrow.
So, tips? Not sure how I’m going to do my makeup so I don’t look washed out. Also nervous because Fiance and I aren’t very good at posing together. We’re just awkward in photos! Anyone else have this problem?

Wear the sweater LAST (you don’t want to get all sweaty, cause that’s just not cute)
We started with a margaria, which helped 🙂
Look at epics to find poses, styles you like and share them with your photog.
And HAVE FUN!

I think once you guys are relaxed and get into the flow of taking the photos you’ll be fine. If you have a good photographer, they should help direct you as to what to do/where to do it and make you feel comfortable in the process.
As for make-up, you’ll want to punch it up just a pinch and keep some handy for touch ups if your shoot is lengthy. Are you doing pics during the day or at sunset?
My mister and I are doing our pics this weekend too. Have fun!

@nmsoonerbride: Great tip on wearing the sweater last! I didn’t think about it, but it makes so much sense. Good tip also about the makeup. I guess I’ll be laying it on a little thicker than normal.
@emtheartist: I hope you have fun doing your e-pics this weekend, too! Thanks for the tips.

Thanks again, girls, for your good tips! We had a blast doing our e-pics yesterday, and our photog shot for 4.5 hours! My face hurt at the end. I will be sure to show everyone the results when she blogs them. 🙂
