Engagement Shoot this Saturday...need help!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies,

 

Our engagement shoot is this Saturday in Central Park, NYC. He proposed last thanksgiving at the parade so we though it was appropriate to do the city.

 

I have NO IDEA what to wear. I have read neutral colors, no patters. It's November, so I was thinking a sweater dress. But then someone said jeans/blazer and heels.

 

Second issue...picture ideas...what were your favs? Close ups, background shots.

 

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THEM!!!!

 

Thanks a bunch,

Shannon

ohh I like patterns and unique things in e shoots - I think they look great. I would recommend looking at different photographer blogs. I like the jeans, heels, and blazer...what about a dress?

Both! Just change in the middle! =) I think patterns are okay on one person, but not both. Just don't do two solid shirts of the same color! I think that's so boring. For ours we both wore jeans. He wore a white collard shirt with a dark plain sweater over top. I wore skinny jeans, brown boots and a shirt that had a pattern and then a plain brown sweater. I think they looked okay together... but I haven't gotten the pics back yet!! Good Luck!

I always tell my brides to wear outfits that they know they look GREAT in! Then, you'll feel great throughout the shoot. I also think dressing up a little looks awesome. And, bring several outfits. No need to limit yourself to just one. Do jeans etc. for a bit, and a dress for another bit. As far as what dress - again the one that looks best ON you.

I LOVE when my clints have a dress up outfit and then a casual one. It really gives a great varity in photo options. If you have a pattern dress, that you feel awesome in, wear it, I was never one to say you have to match.

 

The main thing to remember is just have fun, and your pictures will turn out awesome.

Thanks, I am definitley going shopping for a dress then this week. Hopefully something brown as that's a good color for my hair and then perhaps bring jeans and a sweater.

 

We'll be in the park, so I will ask the photographer about the outift change.

 

Thanks so much ...

 

Anyone have picture ideas? Exampleshuh.gif

I did my engagement session in Central Park, so here is my photographer's blog post about it...

We met at the fountain (where my husband proposed) and then walked past the big lawn thing (where the large rocks are with the city view behind it) and then through some bridges and things. We ended at the restaurant in Central Park where my husband and I had a very nice dinner... but they have awesome photo ops.

 

I hope this helps! :)

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
