    My complexion...

    Advertisements
    I'm taking engagement pictures Sunday and I was wondering how you guys think my complexion will contrast with a stark white eyelet lace type dress?

    See siggy.

    You are very pale yes? I can tell you from a makeup artist and a photographers view is you might be blown out in the photos if you don't have a great photographer who has the right lights. I would just say if you can get your makeup done (and let them know why it is happening) it might help and make sure your photographer knows what you are wearing.

    My photog is EXCELLENT. Charleston Wedding Photographer ...Valerie.
    She uses lots of natural light as these will be outdoor pictures.

    AND yes...I'm the epitome of a ginger kid. PALE as a ghost.

    She looks great. I'd say she will know how to use the light to be beneficial towards your ummmm paleness (lol) and the white dress so you look fabulous.

    Girl, I don't hate on the paleness. It makes me beautiful.
    Thanks for your input.

    Looking at the pic on the far right of your siggy, I'm guessing that is more of your "natural" color (the other one looks like it might have been a closeup with a flash?) and like you said, you'll have a professional photographer, natural light, etc. etc. Anyway, I think white will be just fine. My daughter has worn some things with white and I love how it makes her red hair and blue eyes stand out.

    Must say I'm partial to redheads.. this is my daughter... a total fluke of nature because her dad and I (and her brother) all have the same "blah brown" hair LOL... but she got lucky!!

    you are very pretty.

    And I am think you know what I meant but to clarify, when one is to pale or too much white (clothes, blond hair, background) if you have someone who is not a good photographer but just takes photos than they might not know how to work the camera settings, the lighting etc to make one look their best.

    Your daughter AND son are cuties.
    My brother and I are the only ones in our family with red hair.
    My sister and parents all have brown hair.

    Also the pic in the middle is natural light haha in the winter.
    Pic on the far right is during the summer.
