I just did e-pics in a park with red and orange folliage. He wore jeans with a grey striped button down shirt and I wore an oliveish green dress (close to the color used in the wedding bee titles) with brown tights and brown boots. In some photos I had a deep purple scarf to turn down the color. We used a bright purple umbrella at one point and the bright color looked amazing against the leaves.  I would encourage bright colors, expecially of the secondary hues (purple green orange) to compliment the orange leaves, grey and brown are nice but you will pop more with a splash of color, I think royal blue could look really nice as well. Have fun!

we did ours outside with bright foliage too!  i wore a black top and jeans and he wore a black pinstripe button down shirt and jeans.  I just got our pictures back today and they look GORGEOUS!  the background colors look so great against our darker solid outfits.  Plus we really stand out because of the contrast.  Good luck!  I’m sure the pictures will look great no matter what you wear!

just a thought… maybe you can ask your photographer’s opinion. he or she would know what’s best composition-wise and could work with you on the mood you want to convey in your pics. it could be a fun collaborative thing.

We did similar pictures and for the first set last October 07 I had a cream shirt and my husband had a dark green shirt on. I feel brighter colors would have looked better but, we did do them again this fall right before our wedding and we both wore black and it looked gorgeous! It really brought out the colors around us. I also think a dark purple or any dark colors would look great!
