rhirsen :  I like the last dress (blue) and the orange top. 

Since you’re going to Old Navy, you could also check out this one:

rhirsen :  Black is my go-to also! I think blCk would look great in engagement photos with an accessory that pops, like a bright pair of shoes or earrings, or a denim jacket! You will look beautiful!!

rhirsen :  I really like you in the red dress with white flowers. It looks very flattering on you. I also think jeans with the white/blue top from ON would look super cute as well!

I like the last white dress with the pink flowers, I think it looks the most bridal which I always like in engagement photos. I also like the blue old navy top with jeans, I love casual looks too.

rhirsen :  I think the blue dress (but full disclosure, I’m just not a fan of floral print and would also stay away from black). I like the blue and white top as well.

rhirsen :  Black will photograph beautifully; as a PP mentioned, add color with accessories. For example:

From 6pm:

or if you prefer low heels, from Zara:

with earrings and bracelet from Old Navy:

I like the blue dress, but I lean that way. Second choice would be the next one up from the blue. I wouldn’t do the cold shoulder dresses only because they are ssuch a fad right now. I refused to buy one for my rehersal dinner cause I didn’t want the pics to look dated.

I like both shirts.

Personally you should wear what you usually do. My engagement photos were free, and thats the ONLY reason I did them. I think they look so cheesy and goofy it doesnt matter who does them. But I saw no reason to put on airs and be someone who I wasn’t.

I’d lean towards jeans + a top, or the red floral dress.

The black dress silhouette looks a little plain/casual to me but you might be able to dress it up, and the white floral reminds me of a pajamas (sorry – just being honest)

Also, see what your fiance wants to wear so you guys complement each other in terms of dressiness & color/patterns or lack-thereof. 

Have fun! My engagement photos are on Sunday as well – I’m wearing a solid cobalt blue dress that is sleeveless FWIW. 🙂

I like the red floral dress or else the blue one. 

Of the tops I prefer the blue one.

I actually liked the orange top. Definitely go for something that’s comfortable.
