Black sweater type top, jeans, fav pair of boots! Definitely not romantic, but we’re casual people.

Depending on what top you wear, pencil skirts (high waisted) can be romantic & vintage feeling.

@.twist.:  Similar story here 🙂 I’m going for a romantic, vintagey wedding, but day-to-day we’re pretty casual, and I wanted my epics to reflect that.

I wore a black sweater, black cords, and my favorite scarf.  I was worried about blending into the woods but it worked out fine…it’s an outfit I wear a lot normally, so I felt more comfortable and more like myself despite the pressure of a strange man taking photos.

my photog recommended something classic with muted colors.

I went with a navy sundress and Fiance wore jeans and a light blue shirt. (sorry no pics on this computer)

Probably the best advice is to find something you feel pretty and comfortable in. Becuz how you feel will affect how your pictures turn out. Oh and wear nice shoes! i wore cute grey heels and my photog took a million “shoe pictures”

I didn’t read and consequently didn’t follow any of the rules and our photographer was just a friend but here’s what I wore. I just wanted something with lots of color because I thought (and think) it would make for better pictures. I also liked the way it tied into our butterfly theme.

@Running Elley: thanks! i figure with my fav brown boots and loosely curled hair it’ll have a soft, flowy vibe. plus, you can make it hang off of your shoulder, so maybe that’ll give us some sweet options. then i’ll wear something harder (pinkish-red dress with black jacket and biker boots) for another outfit and then a tight black dress with a red peacoat and funky black heels for some of the other pictures – variety! variety! :]

I have two outfits picked out. The first is my favorite jeans, gold flats, a purple Anthropologie “corset” strapless top with a yellow sash, and a blue chandelier necklace. The 2nd is a navy dress with black tights and black pumps. Not sure what kind of necklace I will wear with it.

We had two outfits. My first dress was romantic and vintagey:

My second dress was flowy with a few ruffly details at the neck and back, with a silver belt.

I just had my engagement shoot yesterday! 

We had two outfits – 1 was more romantic: a navy blue dress, cream cardigan.  He wore an olive shirt, khaki pants and a navy blue cardigan

The second outfit was more casual: I wore my Vegetarian tee and jeans, he wore a baseball style long sleeve shirt and jeans:

We determined the look of our outfits based on the location in which we shot. We did an urban setting, a “little town” setting and a beach setting and changed our outfits accordingly. We stuck with bold colors and simple prints, and things that were flattering.

I suggest that you can either look at engagement photos that you like (of the same style) or to google engagement photos in that area to see how others styled themselves. Good luck! and have fun!
