Engagement Photo Panic

For the past two weeks I've been somewhat anxious about our engagement photo session becaus, naturally, I think I haven't a thing to wear. Not that I don't like any of my clothes our outfits. That's far from the case. I love them. They just don't photograph well. The cute pants don't go with the top, it's not formal enough, etc. etc.

Then, our photographer emailed me this morning saying it's supposed to rain on Sunday and asked if I wanted to reschedule. I started to think about it further, and I realized the Marine Corps Marathon is also on Sunday. . . and the memorial is smack dab in the middle of the course. According to godc.com, the road closures will end around 12:30 for the area around the Memorial, but now I'm worried about all the signage and rubbish left over from the run. But we also already paid for the park permit and the location fee ($100 total) so I'm not sure if we have the luxury of rescheduling.

And I thought an outfit was my biggest concern. Before, it seemed harder to find than a wedding dress!!

Outfits for engagement pics are the worst. Plain colors but somethign with texture so it doesn't look too boring. Guys are ealy polo or button down and jeans ha. As for the permit our photographer did pictures of us at several locations and as long as he can look like just a friend snapping a few shots aka not yelling directions more whispering them and then standing back to take the pics you shouldn't have any trouble. We didn't have a permit and we did the lincoln memorial, the jefferson and the world war memorial

We took our pictures at the Lincoln and the FDR memorial recently and we also didn't need a permit or anything of the sort. If you want to see our pictures I'd be happy to send you the link! I wore a pretty bright pink shirt which actually turned out well against the white of the memorial. Email me if you want:) I'm sure everything will turn out ok! dchokiebride3@gmail.com
