I’m in the same boat…… so welcome 🙂

We are waiting until January to get ours taken so my half sleeve tattoo will be finished.  Due to the season, and living in Northern MI, I am assuming most of ours will be indoor shots. 

I would first ask myself, what is he planning on wearing? Definetly coordinate, not matchy matchy.  

Do you get outfit changes?  If so, I would maybe play around with differnt looks. 

Will they be taken outdoors or in?

What are the options? 🙂 I think a classy dress and fun heels always look great. Or jeans with a cute sweater. In what kind of setting are you taking your pics? What outfit makes you feel the best? If you’re happy it will definitely show in the pictures!

@ offbeat bride: Another Michigander! 🙂 My FI is from that area so I’m up there a lot and we almost had our wedding in Interlochen.

I think something classic, classic, classic. You don’t want to look back on your pictures and go “what the heck was I thinking?

I think those ideas sound perfect! Maybe he can wear a solid color shirt (sweater, button up, tee… whatever is his style) in a complimentary shade. Maybe a dark brown or cream or something. And for pants, again I’d say go with his style. If he’s a jeans guy, he could do some nicer dark jeans. Or some dressier pants or khakis. I totally agree on not being too “matchy”!

I went for a funkier look, but it was still not too funky, I think. We’ll see for sure when I get the pics back!

Just basically try to wear something that makes you feel like a rockstar! (jacked these images from my blog, hence the captions. lol)

I don’t know if this is helpful, but I’ll tell you my experience. Everyone told me – go casual, wear your favorite weekend outfit, etc. Jeans and a nice top. I wore a sleeveless marigold dress that is not “classic” – it will be out of style in 5 or 10 years for sure. And it was 45 degrees outside.

It was the best wedding related decision I have made so far! I have gotten SO. MANY. compliments on the dress. That’s the biggest thing people notice. It ended up matching the color of the leaves on a tree we took pictures with, and that’s going to be our save the date photo.

So I guess what you can draw from this – wear something you love. Don’t be afraid to wear something extra pretty just because e-pics are supposed to be casual. But if you want to dress casual, do that. Just do what you want! That’s the most important thing.

Hi, everyone.  I am also in the ‘what to wear?’ boat.  My FI and I are doing our e-pics in Key West, which is also where we are planning to have our destination wedding.  I was thinking about going to buy something new, but then I figured why not wear something that’s already in my closet that I know I love.

I’ve seen all over the web that you are not supposed to wear white.  However, A LOT of the beach e-pic shoots I have seen have included white sundress or top.  Has anyone had a poor experience wearing white for their session?  I was thinking of wearing a white, eyelet halter sundress. 

I was also thinking about wearing jeans and a black tank top–just something casual.
