    Your hair is naturally curly, right? Go with that, since it’s how you are.

    Also, curly hair is awesome. I know this for a fact.

    I would definitely wear your hair as natural as possible. I went for really curly hair for my engagement pictures and it ended up raining during our shoot which really loosened up the curls and gave it a natural frizz/wave. I had no idea how my hair looked in the pictures after being rained on, but my favorite pictures were the ones where my hair looked really natural. Plus, your hair has such a beautiful natural texture that I think would look really great.

    I have naturally curly hair and had the same dilema for our engagement pictures! I wear it curly more often so I decided to do our pictures with it curly. I didn’t regret it!

    Professional pics can be so much fun! Especially if you have a great reliable photographer 🙂

    I agree about going with a more natural style, but you may be able to change the style when you change outfits.. maybe bobby pin a section up or back for one look and then take the bobby pins out for the other outfit.. just s subtle difference suggestion. That’s what I did because I was afraid of having the same “look” in every pic.

    I love the look of beachy waves, so somewhere in between? 😛

    I think however you most often do your hair is how you should go for your shoot. I always think that engagement pics should be representative of who you are at the time of your engagement. I wore jeans and pumas because that’s who I am. Though I did get my hair and makeup professionally done. That’s not so me. Have a wonderful time!!

    Curly! I had my hair dyed when I got married, and I kind of regret it. You want to be as natural as possible, since you’ll have these pictures forever!

    Definitely curly! I think your hair looks shiny, healthy and beautiful when its naturalness shines through.

    P.S. Plus you could always wear it down and curly for some of the pics, and then slightly different in others, pulled back loosely or just the front pieces clipped back, etc. Curly hair can be very versatile.

    My fiance and I did our engagement photos last Saturday downtown at Curtis Hixon Park and I am dying to see them! I had the same hair issue and ultimately went with straight. I agree with some previous commenters that I wanted a more natural and less “done” look. But, I wish I had brought a cute headband with me because it was pretty windy and we kept having to push my hair out of my face. Anyway, good luck with yours!

    I also have curly hair and I usually end up going straight for important events for this reason: I KNOW my hair will look good when it’s straight because I am controlling the straightening process! But if I go curly there are so many variables that it is impossible for me to know whether it’s going to come out super cute or frizzy/limp/gross. You know? And I’d hate to look back and be like UGH that one piece of hair is sticking way out/is straight/look at all that frizz. If you love the curls no matter how they come out then I would go with that, if not my vote is for straight! Plus it seems like you wear it straight a lot so it is not a drastic change from your normal style. 🙂
