So, were taking our engagement pictures and im so nervous, hes like whatever… he says whats the big deal you show up smile , pose and your done, but its not that easy well atleast for me its not, i dont know what to wear, dont we all women have that dilema ( we have a closet full of clothing ) but yet we dont know what to wear or have no idea what looks good in pictures. Good thing my photographer send me an email saying to wear something thats me not just somthing that i think looks good in pictures and its true why would i wear something that im not going to be comfortable in … but i am pretty scared in the whole process of taking pictures im not a big fan of cameras or being the center of the attention, but i guess its something i have to get used to since in the wedding its going to be all about “US” , Has anyone been nervous when having your engagement pictures taken, also how was the whole process??

@veramoran: I was super nervous, mainly about my fake smile that comes out during posed pictures, but also about outfits. I told my Fiance he had to be ready to make me laugh, he told me I would be fine and wouldn’t agree to making me laugh… I started crying! Lol. I finally made him say yes! That was the day of, once we got there though it went well! Being photographed is just awkward enough that I had a genuine smile on the whole time, especially when he asked me if I could squint less. We took them on Sunday and they should be here tomorrow or Saturday!

@veramoran: I was a little anxious about my pictures, but I tried to focus on my Fiance who was right there with me and made a point to get to know the photographer so I was comfortable. I tried to be myself and just let loose and tried to have fun.
It went well, but I think the key is to focus on something that relaxes you and think of soemthing that makes you smile!

I was extremely nervous for our shoot. I was nervous about make-up (I never wear make-up), I was nervous about whether or not to wear my glasses (I have a lazy eye when I don’t wear them), I had no clue what to wear…. but then the day came and I did my own make-up, brought my glasses and ended up not wearing them for most of my shots and wore something that I think it’s sexy yet still comfortable to wear.
When we got there it was nerve wrecking but being there with Fiance made it easier, it turned out to be sooo much fun, I worried for nothing.

I was a little bit nervous and went crazy trying to find something to wear. I must have made 4 trips to the mall and didn’t actually purchase anything useful until the DAY OF, even though each time I went I ended up spending more money then I wanted! Wow was that stressful. But our photographer really put us at ease, was easy to talk to and I trust her creativity based on her photos. We actually had a great time and laughed a lot (I hope that makes for good photos lol). I was also worried about my “posed photo smile”, I guess we will just have to wait and see! I think that once you get there and start taking photos you will feel much better about the whole process.
