We have our shoot this Saturday. Our wedding is Oct of next year, so i wanted to catch the leaves on the trees, since our wedding is in the fall. How do you dress for a shoot..number of outfits. Do we have to match? I have no idea how to prepare for this. Please help!!

We had ours the first weekend in November. Check out this link.
I didn’t have any changes but I have seen some photos of girls who did wear more than one outfit.
We just went with colors that would fit in with the outdoors.

You totally don’t have to match if you don’t want to, but I’d definitely advise that you at least try to coordinate, ’cause I’ve seen some shoots where the bride and groom totally clash and it just looks silly.
We’re doing two outfits for sure, possibly three if we can fit it in (just ’cause a recently bought a dress for a wedding and I love it so much I want to work it into the shoot somehow – I’m a dork!)
Honestly, I’d pick a couple of outfits that you feel great in and have your FI do the same and then just relax and enjoy yourself!

I think it looks better if you have the same color scheme and theme… I call it ‘looking like you’re on the same train.’ 🙂 Three outfits. No crazy prints or colors. No stripes. Dresses are cute with tights and boots. Have your FI take photos of you in your outfit(s) beforehand so you can see how they translate in a picture.

Hi! I did a post on this on my blog. Just thinsg we learned. Hope it helps!http://newportnuptials.blogspot.com/2009/06/engagement-photo-re-cap.html
I think it’s all personal preference. We did three outfits because I wanted a little variety. I think it’s nice to coordinate so you don’t clash, but I wouldn’t say you have to match.
Here are some links to our pics:

First off, congrats– we’re getting married next october too!! 🙂
Have so much fun working it for the camera! We also did a couple outfits. We did a fun one (wearing our yankee/red sox gear) and then a nicer one, me in a dress and FI in a button down. We color coordinated. Below is the link to our photgraphers blog.
I don’t think it hurts to bring options! And everyone else is right, you definitely don’t want to clash and I think you should follow some sort of theme esp. if you’re planning on using these for your save the dates.

I think you should ask that to your photographer. It varies to your photographer’s style. Some like it funky with mismatches.. some like it elegant with casuals.. Consult your photographer about it.. -Ian

Have you started getting any ideas for your outfit choice?

Thanks everyone. @ Habibah…I like your photos too. I know this is going to be so fun…I am SUPER excited!! @ Ian..he said one formal and tow casuals (which I decided will be one matchy and one where we dress to show our personalities) We’ll also shoot some outside, because I want the leaves in some of the pics since we’re having a fall wedding and our engagement season. I think I might also bring one of my Japanese dresses, since I am in love with Japanese stuff since I visited there some years back. I think that would be perfect for me to do as an extra.

We didn’t have any clothing changes during our engagement shoot. You can see our pics on my bio: http://bios.weddingbee.com/profile/missasb The only way that we ‘matched’ was that we were both wearing jeans but that is the only way to stay warm taking pictures outside! Have fun this weekend and I would make sure to bring jackets and gloves, it looks like it will probably be in the 40s and your hands will definetly get cold!
