@lemiller:  Yes! It’s called Enchant Me and I’m so excited to wear it. 

@EffieTrinket:  I love your choices! Can I ask where you got the cardigan from?

@lemiller:  I actually don’t get a red nose until I start to warm back up, I just get pale when I’m cold as does Fiance so we didn’t discuss that with our photographer. We were trying to capture the sunrise over a lake and the clouds were most uncooperative. The beautiful pink color in the sky lasted for all of 30 seconds during which our photographer took a picture to check the light and by the time he went to take the shot with us in it the color was gone, so he plans to shop us into the pic with color πŸ˜› We may not have gotten the gorgeous sunrise we were hoping for but the light changed constantly during our shoot as the sun rose so I think the different lighting will make up for the lack of outfit changes.

@MichiganGirl24:  Sorry I don’t remember exactly (it was my sister’s and she doesn’t remember either). But I can tell you it was a pigment enriched lipgloss/lipcolor that was a coral color πŸ™‚

The gloss was so rich in color that I had to dab off the extra so my lips would look a little more natural.

@O.My.Heart:  Darn!! I’ve been looking for the perfect coral shade and I haven’t been able to find one yet! Thanks!

We did ours in January in NYC and it was COLD!!!!  I think it was one of the coldest day of the year.  I had a bag that I took with me with extra gloves and hats etc.  We took them off for some of the photos, then ran to put the back on.  Under my coat I wore long johns and a thick sweater. Also I had knee-high boots on.

I think I’d like ours to be in the snow, so I’m using this shoot for inspiration (from Ruffled). either this, or wear some sort of heavy sweater.

@lemiller:  thanks! Funny story…the sweater is my mom’s, and the scarf is my little sister’s! I really wanted a fitted, mid-length sweater, and had the hardest time finding one. My mom did our photos (she’s a photographer) so I brought tons of clothes to her house and she basically picked what we wore lol. Which was totally fine because I was clueless!

We had ours done a few weeks ago in a vineyard setting (Northern California), and it took me forever to finally decide what to wear! We did decide to do an outfit change…the first was a casual outfit. I wore dark jeans, tall brown boots, a lacey beige tank and a cream open sweater from Banana Rep; fiance wore dark jeans, a nice long sleeve tee, with an olive BR light jacket and brown boots. For the more formal photos, I wore an eggplant cocktail dress with nude pumps and fiance wore dark jeans, button down dress shirt with a dark grey pullover sweater and dress shoes.

 

Here are some pics of the tank and sweater from the first outift, and then the dress from the second (still waiting to get photos back):

 

Hope this helps! Good luck!

I did jeans, boots, super cute light sweater. Fiance wore nice jeans and flannel shirt.

I also pulled out a peacoat and cute scarf for part of the shoot. 

It turned out really amazing. Make sure your sweater is well structured or a bit fitted though, it will photograph better. 

You could also do dress, tights and cardigan, or anything really depending on how warm it is outside. Generally heavier fabrics reflect the season a bit more.
