Outfit Help

I need your opinion.. :)  TL and I are taking our engagement pictures at the end of the month, and I have no idea what to wear!  I have been scouring the internet looking for the perfect fit, and found a few things, but want your help deciding.  The photographer says to not wear white, because it can wash you out.  She also says to wear something simple in color so its not overwhelming.  We are taking our pics in our favorite city, San Francisco... it's the city TL and I because "us".  We can change outfits, and I seem to be partial to colors that make help my eyes stand out blue.  Plus, I will have to wear some amazing shoes!  So... what do you think? 
these two were found at nordstrom

I Would LOVE any suggestions you have... plus, I have my regular collared black shirts that I will probably wear in a few of them!  :)

I like the third one best, but maybe in a different color? I think it's best to stay fairly basic with these because you want to be able to enjoy them years later.

So exciting, let us know what you choose!

hello, the aviation blue top is very beautiful, I like its color that makes your eyes stand out, I like its design model that is simple but modern, I find it is appropriate, not too flashy so that the focus remains on you two and not about how you're dressed. I'd pair it with a feminine skirt and heels shoes, not with trousers. Haven't you thought of wearing a dress for the photo, rather than two pieces? What a great time in your life, I am happy for you, you are truly a beautiful couple, that communicates great positivity and joy of life, congrats! ...sorry about my terrible english...

blue and black tend to photograph the best. i agree with b-chic, you should consider a dress or at least a skirt. it would be pretty and feminine.

I love all the suggestions... I am still looking for a dress, too! Thanks so much!

I like the black one if it comes in different colors! But I don't think you'd be washed out in white I almost love the photos of me from high school senior pics in white. With a city life SF you'll end up with gorgeous photos anyways!

I like #2 or #3! But I like #2 the best! ;)

I luv the first one, not only is it simple elegance but the blue is aesthetically brilliant. Your eyes would glisten without a doubt!

I have always heard that you should stay away from low cut shirts because too much skin looks off in pictures, personally I would avoid # 1. But I really think whatever you wear will be gorgeous. I am pretty sure you can't take a bad picture.

Hi! I'm new to your blog... I can't believe how much we have in common!

I'm gonna be getting my engagement photos done soon, I'm planning a wedding, JUST found and bought my dress, and I see those lil puppies you got on the side of your blog... I've got a daschund named Dierks! lol

well hello twin :)

Leslee said...

I too have heard you shouldn't wear low cut for photos!

Really love the color of #1 for you, the other two have too much going on, seems distracting (IMHO)!

Good luck and have fun shopping!

I definitely agree with the low cut thing- I never notice that until I have the shirt on... I need to keep looking!
