E-pics tomorrow. I need some advice

Recommended Posts

I am so excited, FI and I are taking are e-pics tomorrow. It's kinda funny cause It's Canada Day tomorrow and its also the day we got engaged. So itâ€s a real special day for us, and I want to look real cute!

 

Anyhoo Iâ€ve heard so many mixed feelings about what 2 & what not 2 wear on your e-pics shoot, but I need some more advice from fellow bride 2 bes on what to wear. Should I go all dressy/club or something more laid back and comfyhuh.gif

 

Were taking the pics in 2 different locations. The 1st has a more urban/city background and the other is at a local Toronto beach.

 

Gosh I'm so confused I really want the pics to be just right. Gosh I'm such a dork... LOL...

 

So ladies what should I do?

It was freezing cold when we took ours so I was bundled up with heels and jeans.

 

I personally like the casual look, but then again he and I are both pretty casual people. I like the contrast in the urban setting and think it will look very natural with the beach setting. You could always do both.

 

My only tip would be to wear a little more make up than usual so you can see it in the photos.

If you are doing two different locations, why don't you try two different outfits? Personally I prefer more formal attie which is why I wore a dress. Dean wears suit & tie to work everyday (including casual fridays) so it was very appropriate for us :)

 

I can;t wait for your pics!!

Hey Tam!

 

I would vote for a more casual look - FI and I had ours done in the snow... we didn't have a choice but to bundle up!

 

lol

 

good luck, I can't wait to see the proofs!

I'm sure you will look fantastic no matter what you wear!

 

I'd like to suggest something a bit different. I've shot literally hundreds of engagement pictures - Here's two things to think about -

 

#1 - Remember that you two are in love. If you can, forget about the camera for a few moments, and just try to be in the moment with your fiancee. Have him hold you close, snuggle, enjoy each other, and just be!

 

#2 - Look for spots with "open Shade" Avoid direct sunlight. Instead look for a big shady area near the side of a building (don't get right up next to the wall all the time), or under an awning. Also avoid spotty shade, like under a tree, where there are lots of light and dark patches that can make your face and clothes look mottled.

 

Have fun, and be sure to post a link here when you are all done!

We went casual with ours & I love how they turned out!

 

Maybe even bring a change of shirt/shoes so you can be more dressy in your urban shots & more casual on the beach...

 

But I'm sure they'll be great whatever you decide to choose!

I think it really depends on you and your fiance. Jay and I are so laid back and casual that when we were going to take ours (we didn't get to afterall) we were going to wear jeans and black shirts....We would never wear a suit and a dress, but that is just because that's not really us.

this is totally us too martha :) we both wore jeans, doug wore a black hoodie and i wore a black velvet jacket, he wore hi-top vans, and i wore my work dansko's. just like an everyday normal out fit for both of us. the pics we ended up liking best were close ups anyways, so really all that mattered was makeup being heavier than normal, and we wanted to wear the same color.

Well... my engagement pictures were a surprise and I was told to wear fancy clothes. I love our pictures, but if I had to do it all over again, I'd go more casual.

 

For your shoot in particular... I'd do jeans and heels for the urban part...

and then what about a really nice sun dress for the beach part? I love flowy dresses on the beach. Perhaps your FI should wear kahki pants. I always think those look best on the beach. He should wear jeans in the city to match you.
