You Make It Easy
The You Make It Easy Midi is perfect for a little pop of color for engagement portraiture. Just pair your partner in a solid color from one of the stripes and explore somewhere lush with greenery or with solid colored walls. This would also be super adorable for your honeymoon, or for a guest attending a casual summer/early fall wedding.
Hooked On You
The Hooked On You Wrap Dress is a great neutral for a classic set of portraits. Dress it up with wedges or heels, or down with a detailed pair of sandals. Your partner can fancy up in a suit for some edgy fashion-forward portraits, or keep it casual with dark jeans and a button down. This is another great pick for wedding guests as well!
Leave Me Be
The Leave Me Be Dress is a beautiful coral that will pair perfectly with a muted teal or navy for your partner. Use a lighter color to keep it light and airy for summer, or a darker jewel tone to tone it down for fall! Another great piece for wedding guests - I even picked it up for a rehearsal dinner I am attending this month.
The Addie Belle Crochet Top is a fun causal piece that could be paired with wedges and dark skinnies for a beautiful set in lush greenery. Add a bottle of wine or champagne, and this would make the cutest vineyard picnic scene for your engagement portraiture! This would also be a great addition to your honeymoon bag - cute and comfy!
Chasing The Sun
Sing along with me, "It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini, that she wore for the first time today." Come on, this yellow pretty just SCREAMS summer, but it's also a perfect transition piece for fall when paired with jewel tones for your partner. The Chasing the Sun Dress has delicate polka dot that isn't overwhelming and adds a great little pattern for fun portraits.
The Summer Love Embroidery Dress is just solid gold when it comes to picking a dress for engagement portraiture. The dainty embroidery detail adds a great depth, and it would pair well with a light blue, lavender or coral for your partner. This piece would also be perfect for a bridal shower, bachelorette trip or your honeymoon. It's light, airy AND lined so you don't have to worry about it being see-through. Basically, I'm obsessed with it, and I had to have one for myself.
The Ruffled Romance Dress is another great pop of color for your portraiture and this peachy coral looks great on everyone! The movement and ruffles are perfect for a little depth and movement in your portraits. This is another great piece for casual summer weddings if you're a guest, too!
The Frances Floral Kimono is adorable and would be perfect if you're planning to take your portraits somewhere with lush florals - a vineyard, garden or arboretum! You can pair your partner in SO MANY solid colors that would coordinate with the floral pattern. Also, how cute and fun would this be as a cover up on your beachy honeymoon?!
