    I sent you a private message about this… your photos have to be 150kb or less to upload. 🙂

    I picked the red and gray..just bc white/black combo can be horrible to photograph esp if you are fair skin..

    And, for our engagment pics..we did outside ones and was climbing on things and I jumped on his back for one..and we were sitting on rocks and in swings…I think the comfortable one is the best..

    Can’t see the pics, but first and foremost, go with comfort and check the weather to make sure it’s appropriate.  You don’t want to be freezing or be too hot/sweaty.

    The black and white one is SO cute!  But I do think that for pictures, the red and grey one will work better.  Busier patterns sometimes don’t photograph as well as simple ones.  Plus, having sleeves might be easier, depending on what type of setting you’re having your pics taken in.  They are both adorable though…tough choice!

    Ok, so I voted grey and red, BUT I like the b&w one better. But I was told that you shouldn’t wear black for pictures…but I think in this case it would be okay because it’s all mixed in.  My Fiance and I just got our pictures done on Saturday….it was a great time.  I hope you have an awesome time. And remember to have fun, relax, and don’t feel too awkward about things that should make you feel awkward.

    they’re both super cute, but i think the grey and red will be better for photos.  perhaps save the b&w for rehearsal dinner?  or do both, i know a lot of couples that had a costume change 1/2 way thru…

    I agree that red and gray looks adorable for pictures 🙂

    Have the other on hand for showers, rehersal dinners, etc like @krissycake suggested!

    I voted black and white. It is less likely to date you when you look back on your engagement pictures I think.

    Love both dresses, but I think red/grey is better for E-shoot.  What are the backdrops/locations you are thinking of?  What type of “mood” do you want the pics to be?  More casual?  More formal?  What is your Fiance going to wear and how does his outfit look next to yours?  Just a few things to think about.  😉  But again, you have to be comfortable!

    Why don’t you do a wardrobe change mid-shoot and wear both?  They’re both super cute and it’ll give you more choices when it comes to choosing your engagement photos!

    Black and white…or both. Can you change in between pics? They’re both cute.
