Nice Jeans!

Our engagement shoot with Nicole is happening sometime this summer and whenever I have a moment I peruse/stalk photography blogs for engagement photo shoots.
(My all-time favorite is this one by Jasmine Star. Stunning.)
I was browsing the portfolio of Jessica Strickland and found a fun shot that kept reoccurring in the various engagement photos in her portfolio:

I feel as though a good pair of jeans are a staple in a woman's wardrobe and, along with a cute pair of pumps or flats, often make an appearance in engagement photos. Will you/did you wear jeans in your engagement session? Or perhaps you opted for your favorite dress. Maybe both. Please, do tell.

I wore my tried and true Citizens of Humanity jeans with a pair of ballet flats, and switched into an Anthropologie dress later :)

i wore my favorite seven for mankind jeans with a fun pair of heels that i love...

i wanted to change into a dress for the second outfit but couldn't find one that i really liked (wasn't to trendy) as there were so many 'sack' dresses last summer...

We both wore jeans! I wore a dark pair of Joes Jeans with a lighter blue top and he wore lighter jeans with a navy top. They looked great!

We are taking our engagement photos on Monday and I plan to wear jeans and a dress. I love how both look in pictures so much I couldn't decide and since one of our best freinds is a wedding photographer and is shooting our engagement and wedding photos he is granting me unlimited outfits! I just need to find shoes for the dress...I'm 5'1 and my FH is 6'3... so I think flats are out of the question.

i would/will wear both jeans & a dress. the jeans have to be fantastic or you might as well wear sweatpants. i'm a big fan of wardrobe changes. plus nothing shoes off a great butt like a fab pair of jeans! PLUS i'll probably never look this good again in my life. i want it documented as much as possible!!! good luck =)

i've already scoped out some hot jeans and killer black pumps (my fiance is a foot taller than me!) but i feel like a black shirt is so cliche. i like the idea of a navy/light blue combo, littlemoments! any other color ideas? i want them to look classic.
