Hi Bees 🙂
My FI and I are having our engagement photos tomorrow at the beach! We are so excited and cannot wait to see them finished! I have my attire for our photos picked out already but as for FI, not so much! I am wearing a coral/ivory dress with yellow gold heels, a simple yellow gold diamond necklace, yellow gold cz dangly earrings and my yellow gold ering. I am thinking that FI could wear a nice pair of khaki shorts and a nice white button down shirt with the sleeves rolled up (i love it when he has his sleeves rolled up so that is for my benefit hahahaha). I will add the link to my dress for inspiration. Also, is it a good idea to bring two different outfits for variety? One more thing, I would love to go for a natural looking makeup but am torn on the color I could use for eyeliner as having brown hazel eyes…any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I love your dress and the entire ensemble sounds beautiful! I like the idea you have for your FI’s attire too. Have fun!

We are also having our pics tomorrow!! I think your idea of khakis and button down for FI would be good. Def bring at least two different outfits, our photographer said 3-4 so I am bringing 2 dressy and one casual. I’d suggest at least one of each for both of you. For make up I’m just doing everyday make up, so whatever color eyeliner you usually wear would be good, or maybe black? Have fun!

My husband wore very close to what you envision…Here are some of our pics so you can see what it looks like:) He didn’t wear khakis, but dark jeans instead..I will post a pic of our honeymoon shoot so you can see it with shorts..He wore the same white button up:) Haha. I would stick with solid colors, simple.
And our honeymoon shoot..Same white shirt, but with shorts, like you mentioned..
We also did two outfits and I loved it because it felt like we had two feels for our pics..One more dressed up, and then another more laid back..This was our “laid-back” option..Just a thought:)
All-in-all…HAVE FUN:) I remember how I felt trying to find outfits, not just for me, but for him also..A HOT MESS!! Haha..You see all these shoots on Pinterest and it’s quite intimidating..Also, I don’t know your fiance’s style, but my husband would be content wearing athletic shorts and a T-shirt everyday, so I didn’t want to pick anything where people would look at the pics and go..”Hmm, that just doesn’t look like him or something he would wear.”
Looks to me by what you describe that yours will look stunning:) Good luck!!…And BREATHE:)
Also, as for make-up, I think a natural look would be great!! You want to look like you do naturally, so I would stick with a little more than on a typical day (because pictures often wash you out), but don’t overdo eye make-up, blush etc. You mentioned golds, so you could use golds, browns, tans, creams…I LOVE my Naked 2 pallete.. The colors are wonderful and very natural:) It’s a little pricey, but lasts for a long time and so worth it!
