Why not both? Depending on how long your session is, he may have time to change (but better start in the dress blues, those can be finicky to get on just right!). Our session, and most I’ve seen have plenty of time for one or two changes.

If you must stick with one, I’d go with nice civies. My guy doesn’t want to wear his ASUs to our wedding since so much revolves around the military already. The way he put it was that the military is a lot of our NOW, but our wedding and all that’s related is about us as a couple forever, and we may not want uniforms in those pictures 30 years from now.

Does your Fiance have an opinion either way?

@mexicanabeibi:

Hi there!

My fiancé is in the Navy, but we are planning a destination wedding and want to keep it casual, so he won’t be wearing his uniform. But like you, he’s been stationed overseas and we don’t really have any photos of us together in his uniform. I’ve asked him how he’d feel about doing some of our engagement photos in his uniform (the whites specifically cause I LOVE them!) and he thinks it’s a great idea. Maybe that is something that could work for you as well.

Best of luck!

@mexicanabeibi:

I should read more carefully (long day at work) – yes, I think the e-pics in uniform is a great idea, and also agree with PP, if you can do both, go for it!

Both definitely!  But if you can only do one due to time, I would go with the ones in uniform, personally.  I love seeing Darling Husband in uniform and can’t wait to get some pictures done of us with him in his blues… *swoon*

We did blue jeans. I ran the idea of some pics with him in cammies by my Fiance, he wasn’t into it. We’re getting married with him in his whites so some nice, non military focused pictures were needed.

@mexicanabeibi: Well, we just found out we’re going to be stationed in Hawaii! So excited! Which means we’ll do the wedding there (we’ll move a few months before our slotted wedding date), so guess I have to start researching venues in Hawaii.

Good luck to you! Be sure to post your engagement photos once you have them, I’d love to see them!
