What do we wear?
The next big decision is clothing. Engagement pictures give you a chance to capture some professional pictures of both of you in casual wear. These will be a welcome break from the hundreds of wedding pictures you will have of both of you in your finest attire. Many couples choose to coordinate their outfits. This can mean blue jeans for both of you or a white shirt for him and a baby pink dress for you. If you would rather wear Indian clothing for your pictures, choose something elegant but casual. Select something both of you are comfortable in and plan in advance so you aren't rummaging through your closet for an outfit the morning of your session.
