    I LOVE LOVE LOVE the lace skirt. But solid colours are generally better for photos, so I chose the first JCrew dress. Seriously though, love that skirt.

    @hbean:  I love #2 and #4!!  Do you get an outfit change?  I think #1 is too busy.

    I love #2, the navy Jcrew dress!  I’d wear different shoes though.

    If you do a second look, wear the shorts and white tee…but get a different necklace since you’ll be wearing that one with the dress.  I think your gold sandals look great with the casual look.

    @hbean:  I love the Lilly skirt but I am a biased, major Lilly Pulitzer fan! I would wear the Lilly for outfit #1, and then the coral dress for something a little more casual.  Bright colors look good in engagement photos! Everyone does black, white, and plain colors.  Why not be fun, fabulous, and bright?

    I love 2 or 3 and then 4 as a very casual outfit if you switch it up. I love the skirt in #1 but it looks like something I would wear to my office.

    I love the first – the colours will really pop on camera – and also the Poppy dress. Great colours.

    2 or 3 would be best! Try to avoid busy prints as it may ruin some of the look of your poses. Not to mention, patterns can be dated. Solids are forever 🙂

    Man, everyone here is right but i just had to vote for #1 because i’m in love with that lace skirt! But #2 is a close second for me.
