I think what you described sounds great to wear! and I love the idea of going barefoot since you are at a lake!  Some of my fave e-pics in a setting like that are: pictures of a couple dangling feet off of the dock, maybe a cute closeup foot picture of the feet dangling and the sunset in the background with the sun shining in between their faces.  Have fun! My Fiance and I just got ours taken last week and we had so much fun doing it!

sounds super cute!  I’d bring shoes – maybe heels incase you want to do some shots with shoes and some barefoot!

Get some candid or semi-candid. Ours are all really posed.

Bring several changes of clothes if you can. That outfit sounds good, but also consider jeans.

It sounds like you have it all planned out pretty well. I think a dress will be super-cute at the lake. Some of my favorites from our engagement session were photos of us walking and holding hands, and also ones of us running (looks like I am pulling him along by the hand). Have fun!!

I’d recommend a 2nd outfit too, I just took mine on Sunday and it was super fun, we did 3 outfit changes!  One medium dressy (I wore a jean skirt, a sweater and boots and finace wore khakis and a sweater).  Our second outfit was a little nicer, I upgraded to a simple dress with a belt and flats (we were at a lake/on a doc too and it seemed ok, since we weren’t getting in the water) and he wore khakis and a button-down.  Our last pictures were in our college sweatshirts and jeans, so super casual.  We just kind of wandered around and our photographer found different spots that looked cool.  I’d definitely try and get some semi-candid shots too, aka, not just looking at the camera and smiling.

Have fun and good luck!
