We are getting our engagement pics taken on Sunday and I am kind of freaking out! I guess I wouldnt be that stressed if we werent planning on using them for our STDs…..but thats not the case, so i am stressed! Did any of you stress prior to your pics? I dont feel like I am prepared enough or something. I want my teeth to be whiter (can they photoshop that?), I dont have any tan, I havent 100% picked my outfits or my locations yet or if we should use props! hahaha. I am a mess! 🙂
If you guys did stress-did you feel better when the day came and did your pics come out as planned????

Cabana, don’t be nervous! E-sessions are fun! The more relaxed you are the better the pics will be. They can Photoshop your teeth, but some photogs might charge you extra for it. It doesn’t hurt to just ask 🙂

aww i was in the same boat just about a month ago!
and don’t worry, once the initial nerves wear off you’ll have a great time!!
FI and i talked about a couple outfits the week of, but didn’t even finalize it until the morning of! (we started our shoot around 4pm) we def had swapouts, etc. and the pics turned out well to our liking anyway! 🙂
in my opinion you should:
- wear bright colors, to give photos a POP 🙂
- don’t wear patterns that are eye-straining
- do at least 2 outfits to have a lil variety
- just be you! laugh play just hang out like you two normally do, those were some of our favorite shots
- as far as teeth whitening – i didn’t get as far into my whtiening regiment as iw ouldn’ve liked, but they turned out decent… (i brushed my teeth ’til we were out the door LOL)
- and as far as a tan, just a light glow is better anyway, u don’t want to look different than your normal self.
HAVE A GREAT TIME!!!! just relax and enjoy it!! 🙂
can’t wait to see pics!

missjyc-GREAT advice! I am going to look for a few items to wear this week, so I will definitely keep what you said in mind.
I hope its fun! I am sure it will be awkward at first, but isnt that what the engagment shoot is really for? To learn to be comfortable with your photog and taking these types of pics? I am excited for that

I felt the same way! My engagement pictures were smack dab in the busiest week of my engagement. Talk about bad timing. I cried that my teeth weren’t white enough as well! I haven’t seen mine yet-they were last week, but if I could have done it over again, I would have looked at the engagement sessions in the gallery. So many cute ones. We just did whatever the photographer told us which was nice, but I would have liked to have been more in charge and done some cute ones like a piggy back or eating ice-cream or something. It will all work out!!
