FI and I are getting our engagement photos done tomorrow. We live in the Little Italy neighborhood of Boston that also happens to be right on the waterfront, so we thought the two locations would give us a contrast in terms of setting (the waterfront area has parks too).
This past weekend, I went shopping for something to wear, and ended up with this dark pink dress. It looks really good on, and I like the way it fits. In this picture, I’m obviously not wearing the right shoes/jewelry, but you get the idea.
So my worry is two-fold. First, I don’t know what FI should wear. I want him to wear navy slacks, as I like the contrast between the pink and navy, but I can’t figure out a shirt. Most of his button down shirts are patterned and they seem a bit busy for engagement photos. In terms of solid colors, he only has white, a lighter blue and black. None of them really seem to go well with my dress. I’m willing to go out and buy him a new shirt, but I have no idea what color to stick to.
Second, I’m worried that I chose the wrong dress. I think the dark pink will look really good in the waterfront/park photos, but when we take the remainder of the photos in our neighborhood, I’m worried the pink will blend in with the brick (everything in our neighborhood is brick, brick, brick) and I won’t stand out.
HELP! Am I just overthinking things? I’ve never had professional photos done before, so I’m nervous about everything, but now I can’t help thinking I made the wrong choice in outfit.
If I stick with the pink dress, what color shirt should FI wear with his navy pants? If I should change my dress, what colors do you recommend?
Here’s a photo of my dress on the hanger with the pants I want FI to wear. The dress is definitely a darker pink than it appears in this photo:
