To answer your second question – my fiance wore nice jeans, with a button down shirt/v-neck sweater combo and black shoes.  The shoes and sweater made him look polished, but the jeans kept it casual and not stuffy.  By The Way I wore a fun dress.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I’m 5’5″ and he’s 6ft. but I wore heals and not all of the shots were of us standing.  Hope this helps a bit.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe you can have your photographer stand slightly above you and take the photos on a downward angle? Or stand on different level surfaces (such as stairs). Or just embrace the height difference and get some awfully cute pics of you looking up at him or him picking you up!

My Fiance wore jeans, nice shoes and a zippy-sweater in a color that complemented my dress.

He’s 6’1″ and I’m 5’5″.  I just wore heeled boots and went with it.  Our photographer also chose lots of snuggled up poses that made the height difference seem appealing.  Think:  Fiance as He-man and me as delicate flower.  Or something.

We both wore jeans on our engagement pictures.  I thought of them as more ‘us’ than the wedding pictures, because we aren’t normally as put together as we are in our wedding.  As for the height difference, you might want to consider heels first of all.  If you are moving and one is ahead of the other, this could create an allusion of less of a height difference.  If there is a hill, you could stand behind him and put your arms around his shoulders.  And of course I have seen a lot of great pictures of couples sitting or laying down for engagement pictures!

I’m sure that your photographer will have a lot of ideas as well!

I definitely agree with the downward angle. Not that all the shots have to be that way, but it helps. Get some of you guys sitting too.

As far as the dress clothes go, he could wear nice jeans and a dress shirt or button down.

I’ve shot so many engagment shoots now I’d like to pass on a piece of advice. Bring at least two outfits. Let one of them be casual. I shot a guy that was a metal head. He changed into a metal t-shirt. Another guy was in a country band. He wore a flannel. Sometimes people are sports fans and wear a jersey. Usually, the brides drag their guys kicking and screeming to the e-session. The guy will resent you less if they get to reflect some of their natural personality. Just decide not to use the shots later. ๐Ÿ™‚
