Wear something you are comfortable in – feel like YOU in….  and perhaps if you can do a outfit change, also something a bit fancier?  Or add a scarf or cardigan for texture and depth so the B & W photos look extra great.

Wear whatever you feel confident and comfortable in!  You want your personality and love for your FI to shine through in the photos, not the fact that you are uncomfortable in your clothes.  

Color is great!  Maybe try a cute dress and boots for one outfit (can add/take off scarf, cardigan, etc.), and a pair of jeans with a nice but casual shirt for the second.

@MaryRachel:  I did two outfits – a white dress with brown belt and cowboy boots, and then a nicer green dress with nude pumps.

 

I got both of his shirts at J.Crew and my green dress was from Antonio Melani (Dillard’s) and my white dress was just from a local boutique. Hope this kind of helps!

@MaryRachel:  date twin! And city twin! 

FI and I just took our e-pics downtown Chicago last week! We took some at Daley Plaza (that’s where we actually got engaged) and then walked over to the Art Institute gardens for our other pictures:) 

i wore a nice dress (light pink with heels) FI in black pants and a button down, and then we changed…both of us in jeans, him in a brow. thermal shirt, and me in an oatmeal long sleeved shirt, tall boots, and cute printed scarf. Neutrals are good! 

 (Second outfit!)

@MaryRachel:  Flowy cardigan would be fine!  As is black.  Do you have a scarf that could be a fun pop of color?  

Just remember to get some comfortable above all!  It really will show in your pictures.  After all, it’s not about the outfit it’s about you and your FI!

We’re taking ours tomorrow! It’s going to be in th 60’s this weekend, so I’m doing jaans for one outfit and a favorite dress for another. 

 

Our locations are the lily pond in lincoln park, Michigan Ave by the river, and the skyline at the planetarium.

 

One place i wanted to visit that my fiance didn’t is Lightology. It’s a light store downtown that lets you take pics inside, and on their gorgeous rooftop deck. No appointment needed, just show up during businees hours.
