My FI and I are having our engagment pictures taken this Friday and I’m not sure what to wear. I want us to be ‘us’ and casual. We are having them done in a park near the lake and I love the look of sandals or bare feet. I was thinking jeans and a t-shirt but then thought it was too casual. I don’t like wearing white blouses as I know this is classic but not me. I always wear black tops but thought that might be too bland or dark.
Any suggestions??? Thanks for the help ladies! I will post the pics after they are done.

I’m having my engagement photos next week, too, and can’t decide!
We had t-shirts printed with one of our wedding logos that we’re going to wear for part of it – I’ll be in jeans, and he’ll be in khakis – but I’m not sure if I want to wear a dress or a nice shirt for the rest.
You should do what you’re comfortable in! I had a friend who had hers in a t-shirt and hoodie because that is what she wears!

I wore some dark jeans and a cute top and my FI wore a sweater and some jeans. That is pretty much a normal outfit for us. Just be comfortable with what you wear, dont go out and get something ourtagious that isnt you. You can always take a bunch of stuff that you would like to wear and see if the photographer has an eye for something.

We dressed like pirates.
He proposed in Salem, MA. We met in Salem, MA. Salem is important to us (and no, we aren’t witches lol).
Anyway, there is this vintage photography place we always walked by when we were in Salem and because neither of us had a camera, but really wanted our engagement pics to be taken in Salem that day, we finally decided to go for it so we could have some pics, in Salem, on that day. 🙂
Everyone thinks they are awesome and sooo us.
I’d post some but I can’t figure out how to post pics. 🙁

wear whatever you are comfortable in. some couples like to dress up a bit, some like to dress down….bring couple outfits if you want….
we do advise against wearing black, just cause its sorta bland….and white, just cause its tougher to expose properly, but in the end, we can deal with whatever you decide to wear.

I’m having mine done Friday and I told my FI to pick one nice outfit and one regular outfit. And “nice” for us is dark jeans and dressier tops. I’m not really a dress/skirt kinda girl – FI and I are into baseball and UFC! But, for my nice outfit, I am wearing a cute top and finishing it off with some bright flats and my pearls. My dress down outfit will more likely be flip flops and a more T-shirt leaning top. I’m really wearing two similar outfits, but changing it up with shoes and jewelry. You don’t even have to have more than one outfit either. My goal was to wear something I was comfortable in (jeans) but that looked like I was going somewhere nice (pearls).
Post your engagement shots on your bios when they are done. I love looking at everyone’s different styles!

We did ours last Thursday and did three outfits…
1. Him: Light blue polo, jeans, white shoes; Me: Tangerine colored tank, jeans, white sandals
2. Him: Red polo, jeans, white shoes; Me: White v-neck, denim knee length skirt, red heels
3. Him: Olive polo, khakis, dress shoes; Me: Plum colored Anthro dress, nude heels
We (and our photographers) loved them all. When I get the pics back (in less than 10 days!) I’ll post some!
