I think you should take test pictures of the outfit if you are worried, and see if you like the way it looks on film.

I think it depends where you are talking your pictures.  If there isn’t a lot of color where your going, then the pattern will make you stand out, which is good.  Can you go to where you were thinking of taking e-pics and have Fiance snap a couple of pics? Just as a trial.  Oh, and people usually have an outfit change.  So, you could do the pattern dress and then something more neutral for your second outfit.

I hemmed and hawed over this for a LONG time before my epics…and I decided that it would be best to go with solids in the end…I had a bright green dress, and it popped so well in our surroundings! I changed into a shirt with a lot of texture (ruffles) in it with jeans and bright pumps for the second half of the shoot. Can you attach a pic of what your shirt looks like? If it was a small floral pattern, it might look great! I’d avoid big huge pattern, because it might draw your attention away from your faces! I’d love to see it though!

I thought they turned out great; here is a link to them if you’d like to see! He just mentioned us on his blog today…and mentions Weddingbee as well (there are two links to the pics…part 1 and 2)


Oh, and becacuse I do love my pics, I’ll attach one teaser…

Good luck on your e-pic wardrobe decision!!!

so your photog is a fashion guru now?


just wear what you feel comfortable taking pictures in….the photographer should be able to manage if he or she is a true professional.

I just love Katiebug’s e-pics! I agree with the solid color advice, though. If you have a pattern if will be really easy to tell if your clothes folded weirdly or if your fiancé’s arm around you caused the fabric to bunch up. I just looked closely at the teaser pic Katiebug attached and I think if she had been wearing a patterned dress, the bottom of her dress might have looked strange and taken attention away from the awesomely sweet facial expressions.
