Jeff and I have been engaged for just over a year now and we’ve checked quite a few things off of our Wedding To Do List. We found the venue and booked it! I got my dress and my shoes, I’ve proposed to my bridesmaids (and he found his groomsman) and put together a look for each of them, and even designed and ordered our Save the Dates, (they’re in a box in my bedroom waiting to be sent out) BUT the one thing everyone has been pushing us to do that we honestly haven’t done yet is take Engagement Photos.
I know all you brides out there are probably shaking your head thinking what are you doing and what are you waiting for but truthfully it just hasn’t been something on my radar. I’ve gone back and forth so many times about what I want to do for our engagement photos. First I wanted to do very fairytale like photos in the Botanical Gardens, then I thought how fun to take photos in the graffiti covered venue where we met, then my thought was we can take super couture photos in one of the few museums here in Orlando. I’ve definitely been pretty scattered with my thoughts on our engagement photos but ladies I think I’ve figured it out!
Back in December (only a year and half after our engagement) my brother is getting married in beautiful Saint Augustine during the Night of Lights! Jeff and I went up with my family last year during the night of lights to tour his venue and find the house we’ll be staying in for the weekend. Last night I thought ; being there for 4 days we should definitely have a few hours to sneak away to the Lightener Museum and take some beautiful photos one night with all the lights! I talked it over with Jeff and he agrees it would be a beautiful back drop for some amazing photos! I’m beyond excited to start planning it all!
Now Let’s Get Into This Look!
I want to definitely take my engagement photos in a BOMB outfit. Something that compliments the lights and also isn’t your cliché white sundress, I’ll definitely be in white I think I’ll move toward wearing a dress oppose to a pants look (unless I find a killer jumpsuit) however with wanting to take the photos at night in the light museum area I’m looking for more of a formal or at least a little e more jazzed up dress. I’ve found a few looks I think would be fun for Engagement Photos so be sure to leave me a comment and tell me which is your fav!
I’m always a fan of House of CB and there are so many looks that would be perfect for our engagement shoot starting with this super sexy starting with this Camora dress! I love the fitted midi skirt, and the peeking shoulder.
Its no secret I love Revolve just like pretty much every other girl out there and they have a killer selection of dresses. This About Us Coco High Slight dress would be a great look for our engagement photos. Showing just the right amount of leg this dress is super sexy! I could certainly see this dress with middle part styled sleek hair or even a pony!
Now I did say that I didn’t rule out the thought of a jumpsuit. I’m pretty tall and I feel like a good jumpsuit on a tall and slender girl can be super sexy. I came across this on House of CB that is literal perfection! Fitted to the body, a little sexy with a plunging neckline and stark white!
Keeping on the theme of dresses I didn’t want to leave out the idea of a fitted floor length dress. Again on House of CB, this Merveielle dress is super slender and very sexy. It could be a fun look for our engagement photos!
I definitely know which one I’m leaning toward but what are you loving?
