Our engagement photos are on October 6th, they’ll be outdoor in a park, or somthing like that.. Haha
Hows this top? (add black leggings and UGG boots)
Fiance and I aren’t planning to be matching (he’ll wear a leather jacket, nice black tee and dressy-ish jeans and “dressy” runners – If that makes sense haha)

I strongly feel that engagement photos should reflect the couple (your style and personalities). However, in my experience with professional photos it’s best to stick with clothing with less designs and patterns. It helps the photos be more timeless and gives a more polished look. With everything that will be in the background (trees, grass, plants, sky, buildings, and other structures) wearing clothing that doesn’t have a lot of patterns keeps the focus on the couple in the shot.

@Stephville: I do like the print but that’s it. that will make me think you’re hiding a huge bulge in your belly, it is not flattering and looks sloppy. IMO of course.

Here’s how I see it. Prints and patterns tend to follow the recent fashion trends. If you want something more timeless and lasting I would go with a solid colored top, bottom, and maybe a scarf to add something to it. For example, right now polkadots are cute and in fashion…but looking back at your photos 10-20 yrs you. may not like what you’re wearing.
If your everyday wardrobe is more simple than it might be best to go with the solid colored outifts. If like to really accessorize, bright colors, and busy frabrics then go with a print. Ultimately you want to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing and feel like it represents you.
