Ours were taken at the very end of summer, and wore sunset colors. I didn’t really plan it that way, but I just thought the outfits looked good together and would go nicely with the green trees.

We had a couple outfits:

1. Alma mater shirts – both were white/grey/black.  These didn’t look great with the summer colors of the trees and stuff

2. Me in an olive tank top and a cream cardigan and blue jeans, him in a navy button-up and blue jeans.  I didn’t love the way the cream photographed, and I think the olive blended in too much with the trees/grass.

3. Me in a white lace sundress and him in khakis with a plaid brown shirt.  This option definitely looked the best!!

If I were to plan it all over again, I’d definitely do more navy because it looked nice.  But I think browns looked better than greens, and if I didn’t have really red hair, I’d try some yellow or pale pink!

I hope to do ours in a sundress or shorts with him in shorts and a polo!

Ours were in the summer. We had two outfits. Our super casual ones consisted of me in a cami, thin button up top, jeans, and sandals. He was in a tshirt, jeans, and sneakers. The slightly less casual (though admittedly still casual since that’s how we are) consisted of me in a skirt, tucked in tshirt, and the same sandals. DH was in a button up and the same jeans, though he changed into dressier shoes. We were comfortable and the heat wasn’t a bother!

I had such a hard time finding the right look for our summer engagement picture session. 

I was able to get this black dress with sheer overlay at RW&CO and the jewelled belt at Le Chateau. I was so so happy how it looked in the pictures. 

I picked up my better half’s blue shirt at RW&CO and he had the shorts already. 

I had planned on wearing cute sandles but because we ended up hiking I wore runner and so did FI. I do think I look way more formal than him but what oh well. 

Good luck! You will find something that will fit your vision.

antique_acorn:  There’s a really pretty mountain where I used to live. Our e-pics were in June, so it was around 105F during the day, but the mountain is usually about 10-15 degrees cooler. It has a variety of landscapes – from this really gorgeous rocky area (where the pics I posted were taken) along with typical pine forests.
