    Hey Bee! I don’t think I would wear the shirt for engagement photos. You look like you have a killer figure and I feel like this shirt isn’t really flattering you the right way. I also don’t think the sparkles would look quite right. 

    Some things to consider on your outfit is the location of your photos, the weather, and also if it is your typical style. You want your photos to look like you πŸ™‚

    I recommend something more like this since it’s spring time and these color palletes are soft and perfect for the season!

    Also if you really want to do something that sparkles, I don’t know how casual your engagement photos are going to be but here are some possible outfits or pieces that could be nice!

     A skirt like this with a white top of some type could be really cute!

    i did a sparkle skirt. I don’t have pics though. But it was a matte black sequin skirt and I wore a royal purple turtle neck, black tights and some cute black heels. We did our pics in the mountains, there was snow so it was appropriate, I guess. My fiancé was dressed up in black slacks, black sweater with white button shirt and a tie that coordinated with my skirt.

    Im all for sequin if in the right way. I do think you could do better than that blouse though. Sorry!

    I voted yes before I saw the shirt. I think some of the suggestions from the previous posters are great! But ultimately it’s up to you and your personal style πŸ™‚

    As a photographer: sparkles, yes! that particular shirt, no.
    I agree with the types of styles that the pp posted above.

    I don’t think the shirt is bad… love the sparkles but I’d personally prefer it without the cutout sleeves. It’s giving me major Fashion Bug flash backs.

    The suggestions other bees have are great! Though if your goal is to be more casual, wear the sparkly shirt πŸ˜€

    I love how sequins photograph, and as I can only tolerate the texture for about 1 hour at a time, I’m going to use my engagement shoot to endulge in a sequin dress.

    I found this photo online of a similar dress to what I have (except mine is a bit more golden):

    I like your top – it’s not personally my style, but I think it’s edgy and sexy. I’d pair it with some leather pants, and sky high heels. Or if it’s cold, with a leather jacket for a rocker chic feel.

    I wore sparkly shoes and got tons of compliments on them specifically!
