Get Fancy.

If you have no idea where to start I say dress up! Unless you're a movie star we don't have many chances in life to be fancy, engagement photos is a great chance to wear your best or find a dress you wouldn't normally be able to wear. No matter the location a beautiful gown adds to the romance and always photographs well, add a beautiful bouquet into the mix and you've got yourself a dreamy session.

Wear something you're comfortable in.

I can't stress this enough, if you know you won't be comfortable in a fancy gown, don't wear it! There are so many options other there that are both beautiful and comfortable. If you love patterns go for it, if you want to wear jeans wear them. It's better to be comfortable because you'll shine through in your photos even more.

Lastly, Be daring! 

Don't be afraid to push the limits. If you guys basically live in a bathingsuit, why not wear one for your engagement pictures? These pictures are a reflection of your relationship, and if there is something you guys love to do bring that into your session.
