Okay, we are getting our engagement pictures done next week, and I am having trouble figuring out what to wear.. I definitely want to be comfortable, so no 6 inch heels or cocktail dresses. We are both jeans and a t-shirt people, so I want the pictures to be “us”, but a more refined us… Any ideas??? I was thinking a long flowy dress with cute shoes, and maybe dark jeans and a flowy black top? I’m not big, but I am uncomfortable with my weight. I am dieting, but I am not yet where I want to be. I just don’t want to look back on these pictures and think I looked like a cow.. Help please!
Our pictures will be in a park, our downtown area, and we have a field of yellow wildflowers picked out to go shoot at.
Also, we are both huge Indianapolis Colts fans, and we both have jerseys, but how could we incorporate that into our engagement pictures??
I should also mention that we live in Arkansas, where it is absolutely as HUMID as can be right now, and I am VERY hot-natured! So any tips on how to keep your hair in place or your make-up from melting off are appreciated as well!

WELL taking E Pics is a TON of fun!!! You’ll def enjoy it! Don’t worry about makeup– photoshop is amazing!! I was worried too– we did ours in July on a baseball field but our photog said he would take care of it and HE DID! Also, I feel you on not being where you want your body to be– if the photog is any good he can shoot in ways to make you at least 10 lbs lighter 🙂 Again, photoshop is amazing!
Love doing sports themes– can you do a couple outfits? My photog let us do a couple so for the first batch we did baseball theme red sox and yankees on a baseball field then drove 20 mins or so to Mystic, CT– an area with a really nice water front/cute town and took more “formal” pics… that way you have some fun ones and somre really nice ones! Here’s the link to some of ours http://rawphotodesign.com/blog/?p=2064
ENJOY!!! Can’t wait to see yours! POST when you get em

Okay, thanks! We are fortunate enough to have a friend of mine doing them, and I have just been shy about telling her I am self-conscious about my weight, but I will definitely tell her and see what she can do! Her pictures are really good, so I guess I should just trust her! We are doing as many outfits and as many locations as we want… Below is a link to some of her pictures!
