We wore ivory and brown. We did our shots outside in the snow under some trees, so we were going for a soft, natural feel. I wore this BCBG dress with a long brown knitted scarf, brown tights, ivory knitted boots, and brown gloves.

My photographer actually said not white. White pops out, so it tends to make people focus on the clothing too much, but I  think it also depends on where you’re getting the photos.  I would say solids, patterns aren’t as photogenic and it can be distracting.    I actually brought a few outfits and let the photographer pick them.  Here’s a couple of my photos.  The photographer was Adam Nollmeyer.

You might want to ask your photographer what he/she thinks–different ones give different advice.

 Wearing white can help brighten up your face, because some of the light will reflect off your shirt.

 Sometimes photographers suggest wearing solid darker colors though so that you’ll cut a clear… silhouette/outline. And of course some of those darker colors can smooth things out & be slimming…

 I would think you should also consider where you’re taking the photos…
