So, we already had engagement pics taken at Jcpenney’s a few months ago, but we paid waaay too much for them and weren’t happy with the outcome so we decided to have a friend do another engagement photo session outdoors of us in June. We are thinking of taking some shots in a local park and then maybe some outside an old movie theater.
I was thinking of getting a cute summer dress that isn’t really super low cut, but I have no idea where to find one. I don’t want white cuz it’s not really my color and I’m concerned with it being see through. I would love to find something in red, purple, or green.
I already know that he’ll be wearing khaki shorts and a short sleeved button down shirt.
Your help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

I would strongly suggest hiring a professional. You already wasted your time on one bad experience, and I am not discounting your friends work, but what good are images at a low cost or even free, if you don’t like them? A seasoned profesional can deliver what you are aiming for. Even if the pictures are free, you still have to do hair, makeup, get all dolled up, and spend the time for the shoot that could be a wasted opportunity.

Target has a cute line of summer dresses out right now too. They aren’t too terrible expensive (most under $40.00)…check them out online they have a much larger selection then in the store.

Thanks for the help guys! Very cute dresses. I’m especially loving the floral print designs. I will go out shopping this weekend cuz now I got some ideas!
I have seen many examples of my friend’s work and I think we’re making a great decision with her. Jcpenney’s were supposed to be professional and they made us look stiff and uncomfortable in our photos so I don’t think that going with a professional is necessarily the best option. It’s just as much of a risk as going with someone who is an amateur cuz everybody has different styles. It just depends on what suits us and we’re looking for more laid-back relaxed shots that show how we are everyday.
