Will you only be outside, or do you also have an indoor location as well?

I did have two outfits because I wanted to have a variety of pictures. Fiance and I both wore jeans in our two outfits.  In the first outfit I had a dressier top, and in the second outfit I had a plain t-shirt with a statement necklace – different jeans in both of my outfits. Fiance just changed dress shirts.

I LOVE your coat! I think what you wear depends on what kind of couple you are. Fiance and I are very laid back, unfrilly people. I don’t usually dress up so we wanted our personalities reflected in our pictures. I would think about what you normally wear and go from there. I normally wear jeans and a t-shirt, so I classed up my first outfit and was more myself for the second outfit.

@javamonkey:  that coat is gorgeous! I love the color fur at the hood – why not pick up that color in a pair of boots for similar contrasting with whatever bottoms you’ll be wearing?I think a nice caramel colored or toffee colored boot with a skinny jean would look nice – either indigo, black or even a soft grey jean would contrast nicely with a caramel boot.

Our engagement photos were pushed back due to weather so we ended up taking them outside on a pretty cold day in November (rather than during no-jacket weather in October). I contemplated taking off my coat during the shoot to have more than one look, but I was just too cold. Even though I ended up wearing it the whole time, I think the photos turned out great.

I agree with other people – wear some cute shoes/gloves/etc. It wasn’t quite cold enough for a scarf when we took our photos, but I loved that my shoes added to the ensemble. 

Good luck!

@flying_hearts:  I’m still angry ked-like shoes came back into style. I used to get called “soccer mom shoes” but then, they cost a dollar! Then trends happened and f’d up my annual tradition.

that said, yall look so adoralble! I love your location (and youre love obvi!) and I’ve never seen a guy look so manly in keds! It really works and shows your individuality!

@subtlebee:  Haha – I feel the same way about Converse. After Nike bought them, the prices sky-rocketed and it seemed like everyone had a pair. The one plus is that they started producing some fun new styles, and I now own a pretty kick-ass pair of plaid ones (in addition to the classic black I had always previously bought) 🙂
