I need your opnions on our chosen outfits. What accessories to wear, how to make them better, what works, what doesn’t etc..I have no fashion sense at all so any input is greatly appreciated. The shoot will be outdoors at a park hopefully surrounded by beautiful coloured trees :). Ignore the tags on his clothing and my horrible hair and face for that matter lol.

@Lauram018: I am voting for the red dress outfit. Lovely!

@Lauram018: I vote for #1. #3 seems way too casual (IMO) and I think the red would look lovely with the fall back drop 🙂

i like red dress and jeans. i would do a little dressy and a little casual.
i think 3 outfits is too much and the 2 dresses are similar.

We are doing the casual one for sure, opinions on how to make it better are more than welcome.
And a formal one – just can’t decide on the dress haha. Thinking of the red for this and the blue for my shower!
Just want to make sure we coordinate well and aren’t too matchy matchy too.

@Lauram018: I agree with your choices.
Can you find a scarf that has red and purple (maybe even blue). You could wear it with both outfits (again… even with the shower dress) and it will make your looks cohesive.
Your left jacket sleeve is a bit long. Because, I assume, you want to show your engagement ring, you might want to tailor, tuck or roll up the sleeves.

@MrsBonJovi: I don’t wear scarves EVER so i don’t even own one lol..I don’t even know how to wear one lol. I might have to go purchase one and see how it looks.
I agree about the jacket, i just noticed i don’t have much of a hand! eep! thanks for pointing that out.

@Lauram018: I LOVE red dresses in engagement pictures. I definitely think you should wear the red, BUT I don’t like how his tie matches your dress. I would go without a tie or maybe the second tie. It’s too matchy matchy with the red tie.
I also like the casual outfit, but agree with PP about your hand being kind of cut off by that jacket. A light gray cardigan would look pretty with that outfit and would also coordinate with his gray sweater.
Other than those things, I think you have selected some cute outfits!

@Lauram018: I love the red outfit! It’s perfect!
Do you have black leggings or skinny black pants that you could wear instead of jeans with those boots? You could wear a flowy black top with a colorful statement scarf and a couple of fun bracelets 🙂 There are so many tutorials online of how to tie scarves different ways–scarves are the best accessory!

@futuremrsgo: No tie looked too plain, what colour tie should we get? To think i purposefully picked a tie with similar red in it lol
Def goign to get the sleeves shortened, didn’t even realize that and my ring must be in pictures!

Love the first picture!! I wouldn’t change anything about it. I’m not sure about the casual picture, I don’t know if it is just not my style or if something looks a little off.

@Lauram018: That sounds so fun!
Are you planning on all 3 outfits? If so, I’d dress down #1 a little, so you have a formal, semi formal, and casual.
#1: How would you feel about a patterned black tight? Something like this: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/545005992377177643/
Keep the belt (super cute with that dress), and maybe add a scarf or shawl? You also need some pretty fun earrings since you aren’t wearing other jewelery. I’d ditch the tie.
#2: I’d keep this as is, maybe adding some pearl studs and a pearl bracelet. The neckline is interesting enough it should be left as is.
#3: I think the jacket is too “warm” for fall photos. I think a cardigan or sweater would be better (and you can cinch it to your waist. I like the jean and boot combo. But this DEFINTIELY needs a scarf!

I love the jeans and boots combo. I am doing fall engagement pics too and plan to wear something similar for our “casual outfit.” I’d love to find boots like yours! I think it’s maybe the jacket I’m not crazy about. I like the suggestion of PPs to wear a scarf, but since you’re not a big scarf person, what about a sweater or nice top with a “statement necklace?” Something big and chunky in a bright color, maybe?
You look great in both dresses, but I particularly like the red one. I disagree with PPs that said they didn’t like the red tie; I like the tie having some red in it so that it goes with your dress. I think it looks coordinated without being too matchy-matchy. 🙂 You could always have him go without a tie, though, or do a plain gray or silver one?

Love outfit #1 with the red dress. But I think it needs a fitted black cardigan to make it more appropriate for fall. Accessorize with a fun bracelet and either a dainty necklace or cute earrings. For him, lose the tie and leave the top button or two undone.
Love outfit #3 with the jean/boots/purple top combo. However, the jacket is a bit bulky and it hides your figure. I’d replace it with a (fitted) black blazer or a black cardigan (same as above). Throw in a patterned scarf or pretty (chunky) necklace for some visual interest.
Good luck! I’m sure your e-pics will be lovely!!
