what to wear wednesday: engagement session | bay area photographer

in case you haven’t figured it out by now, i’m a big fan of neutrals.  it could be because of a wedding i’m looking forward to in september, or it could be because they are just so darn timeless.  or it could be both.

anyhoo, as you can see, i moved from super sharp to nice to casual.  all have their place in an engagement session, but really only if they only all have a place in your life.

for example, if you don’t have anything you’d consider to be “super sharp” and you don’t intend on ever needing or wearing that type of clothing, then buying them for the sole purpose of wearing them for photos, only to later be locked away in the abyss of your closet is a little silly.

similarly, if your comfy, lounge-around-the-kitchen-on-a-saturday-morning-attire consists of a cocktail dress, heels and matching necklace & earring set, then by all means…let your engagement photos be an excuse to shop ’til you drop and liven up that formal collection.  otherwise, stick with what you’ve got, what you wear often and what you love being in.  because if your saturday  morning is anything like mine, your better half isn’t loading eggos into the toaster in-a 3 piece suit, right?  engagements are about the REAL you, and what you love about each other and about being together.  however, like i’ve said before, if you were looking for an excuse for a new pair of heels or some jewelry “essentials” (and you’ll use them again later one) please feel free to use your engagement photos as an excuse to treat yourself.  :)
