  • poll: Engagement shoots: What style do you looks best?

    Nice and natural with casual hair and make up

    Semi formal. Think heels and tutu in a casual setting ;)

    Formal. You don't get to do this often, so why not?

    I’m doing mine in 2 weeks and have managed to secure my wedding trial make up and hair for the same day but looking at everyone’s pictures I’m wondering if I should have my hair down (plan to wear it up on the day) and red lipstick (plan to go nude on the day) so it looks different. Did anyone go with the same hair and make up for pre-engagement and wedding?

    • Wedding: May 2015 - Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception / Courtyard Marriott Legacy Ballroom

    We went casual, but more nice casual! My Maid/Matron of Honor does photography on the side, so she shot our pictures when she was visiting last summer. I decided to wear the same thing I wore when we got engaged (FI wore a different outfit entirely), and we decided to take pictures at the park where he proposed.

    christabel:  We went with a more dressy casual, I was in a red coat, a black dress, tights and little high heels, and my Fiance was in a black coat, jeans, and nice boots. Ours were also in the Canadian freezing weather!

    I think we were “dressy casual.” I wore a black maxi dress and he had a dress shirt and pants (love that rolled-up sleeves look on him) for our first outfit, and then we went a even more casual with the field pictures, but I still wore a dress.

    I love looking at everyones photo and the support on here. My Fiance and I wanted our engagment pictures to be very romantic and formal. We loved our photographer Judy Hoang from Vancouver ,she did such an amazing job. I was worried at first that  I would feel alkward since I can’t pose but she made us feel so confortable and it  was so much fun for the both of us. 

     

    The pictures below aren’t edited yet since we literally took these pictures over the weekend but they look amazing. Thats how good she was. 🙂
