    I prefer the last dress with a cardigan maybe since its september. I’d lose the brown belt if you plan on doing those boots with the first dress (maybe subsitute some cute tights in place of the belt as an accesory). And as for the second dress, I think the print/colors are too loud for pics.

    I like the first dress! The others are way too busy on the prints for my tastes, but I don’t know what your backdrop is going to be. If the pictures are going to be outside, you want to stand-out in the photos, not blend in like camoflauge!! lol

    I like #3 a lot!!! Everyone wears a white lace dress, and I think that green dress is more flattering anyway. I wore a bright pink dress for mine and it looked great!

    I would be careful with the length of your dress and height of your boots…dont want to run the risk of looking shorter or throwing off your proportions. Out of the three outfits I would do one with different accesories and three.

    I like dress 2 and 3. I think 1 makes your shoulders look broad and your torso look boxy. 2 and 3 are much cuter.

    Will you not be changing outfits a few times though?

    @garden_bride:  I agree. I like #1, but maybe with some cute flats instead. You have great calves, show ’em off!

    I like # 1 but get rid of the thin belt it looks weird. The boots are too high. wear pretty shoes. or ankle boots.

    I do like the other two but like another poster said, too much pattern and color, you don’t want to look like camouflage.

    number 1 looks like you are getting married, and it is a nuetral which will go in any light and with any background also with what Fiance is wearing.

    I like the third as well. I wore a white sundress with my favorite boots for engagement pics, and honestly I wound up wearing my shorts and red top with my boots WAY more, just because it photographed better. White tends to make you look bigger, and the cut of the dress isn’t flattering on your figure at all. 

    Definitely go with the third. 🙂 

    I also agree with the comment about the boot height. If you can, find some shorter boots so you don’t make your legs look uber small. And since they look like they are riding style boots, consider adding a cardigan with the dress. Maybe even some leggings, too.
