I think wear whatever you would normally wear. I love to see engagement photos where the couple look comfortable and wear things they normally wear..i.e. jeans. Just pick a dress that fits yourstyle and go with it. Hopefully you will post a pic when you get them in.

We just picked our engagement outfits last weekend.
We are wearing two oufits.
1. Me- Jeans and some top I haven’t figured out. Him- Jeans and a purple striped polo.
2. Me- Express dress. Him- jeans and a black button down.
I’m super scared about the heat though becuase it’s going to be late August, and FI sweats A LOT.
Here is a link to the express dress. http://www.express.com/2-in-1-dress-27721-22.pro?user_att_value=Email&user_att_name=Interest&Mppg=0&Mcatpn=category&Mpper=3&Mcat=22&Mcatp=cat_2&Mrsaa=*&Mpos=18&Mcatn=Dresses+%26+Jumpsuits&Mpg=SEARCH%2BNAV&Mrsavf=*
I got it with the red bottom/black top.

We did some jean/t-shirt, jean/blouse, and then me in a causal dress w/ FI in jeans
Here’s 1 of each outfit
We also took some “dressy” clothes for an urban/dwntwn/night out look we wanted but we didn’t get that far.
do some searches on enagement photos so you can get a feel for what you want your photo’s to say.. then just pic things out accordingly =)

Hard to tell you what to wear, since I don’t know anything about your personal style… but this is what we wore.

Wear solids. Avoid solid white or solid black if possible. Wear something well-fitted and comfortable. You don’t want any photos ruined because something fell out of place 😉 My personal taste is for clients to wear something that they don’t mind getting a little dirty too, but that’s just me.

What about a fun light seersucker dress or something? FH could wear a similar color button down and light shorts? Which plantation are you going to? I’m contemplating a plantation, the beach, or downtown and I just can’t decide!!

This is what I wore. It was really comfortable, long enough to sit on the ground in!

Hey there! We always tell couples to bring one dressy outfit and one casual outfit. The dressy outfit can be something like a skirt and fun heels or a sundress, and the caual outfit should be something that looks like what you wear on the weekends (something that’s “you“).

@teddy – I LOVE Boone Hall! I’m going there for my bridal portraits (I think). You will have to post when you get them!
