1. Consider an outfit change to switch things up.

This is a must for couples considering a creative-themed movie engagement shoot. Pack a classic outfit on hand to take a few traditional shots you'll still love 60 years from now.

"We always encourage couples to bring a change of clothes for the classic portraits later on, but the natural fun ones seem to get chosen first," said Josh and Leslie McCracken, who shot this "Up"-themed photo.

I'm shooting my engagement photos on the beach at sunset. It's not every day that I get to frolic in the waves with a paparrazzo at bay, so I've been prepping for my close-up. There's just one little thing I overlooked: My outfit. Now, all I can think about is Kate Middleton's iconic "Issa" engagement dress and how it made her portrait really shine (you know, aside from her amazing hair, smile, and body). Here, photographers give us the scoop on which clothes make the cut for camera!
