I have my family portraits taken often enough to know that figuring out what to wear for photos is extremely stressful… Or maybe I’m just neurotic 🙂  My favourite source for finding inspiration for outfits is Polyvore!   People, far more fashion forward than myself, put together full outfits, shoes & accessories included.  From there you can find links to purchase that exact outfit… Or just use it as inspiration & see if there is a similar, more affordable option…since they’re often high end designers.

Mixing colors, patterns & textures makes for visually interesting outfits.  Don’t match, compliment.  Look as though you’re going to the same event.  I love when couples dress really casually… like they’re going to the Farmer’s Market together or a cookout at a friend’s home.

So next time you’re about to have a meltdown before your engagement shoot… Pop over to Polyvore & rely on someone else’s stylish eyes to figure it out for you!

Here’s some inspiration from a few stylish MWP couples…
