I love the outfits. I like him with no tie and you with the belt 🙂

Like your hair, not the tie, not the blue dress ( too short, maybe wear leggings under it). I looks like you are ready for spring and he is ready for fall. Maybe a short sleve button up for him.

I would go with no tie and only one necklase, but other than that they are cute outfits.

I vote no tie(or new tie, mellower pattern/no pattern and orange or similar blue as your dress?) , and necklaces around the neck! When you put it as a belt, it shortens your torso. I love your makeup and hair!

I say wear the long necklaces around your neck. I love long length pearls. Also, I say yes to him wearing a tie. Either that one, or one that has more light blue in it to go with your dress. And thumbs up to the flower in your hair.

I like the necklaces as necklaces and him with no tie :). I love the hair, but maybe you should consider going a bit darker on the eye makeup? That’s something I wish I would have done in my own e-pics, your eyeshadow will be several shades lighter than in photos from your personal camera.

As a photographer I feel it my duty to chime in here!

 

Your outfit is great (long pearls around the neck, not waist). Definitely too short though, if only for the reason that it’s going to be hard for you to sit on a bench or blanket without baring too much. I think his outfit needs a total change, and here’s why: you’re wearing light blue and white, he’s wearing muted, darker versions of those same colors (two other shades of blue, khaki). This will not photograph well together. You want to think about both your outfits as one big outfit instead of two separate outfits. They’re both fine on their own, but in a photo together they won’t. Do you have other options for him? I would suggest a complimentary color to light blue that ISN’T any shade of blue or green, and possibly not patterned. Right now your look says classic and chic, his says rustic and vintage.

Ooooh I LOVE the second set!!!!

ETA different shoes though! White peeps, or maybe even pink/red would be pretty!

Now I like his outfit but not with the new dress. Hmm. I think the issue is the color/style clash. You’re going for a vintage type feel, and his outfit is perfect for that, but yours doesn’t really fit that style. Do you have something with more muted tones?  You look classic alice-in-wonderland-garden and he looks vintage-hipster-field. Also, it’s worth mentioned that everything in all of these outfits will register as greys with no dark/black or light/white. That’s not the best for BW photos. Any other ideas?

Second dress is way better. But his outfit is too dark
