Loud and proud, bright colors and spot on styling, this couple made a sartorial spread out of basic polos. With carefully selected quirky items, their coordinated outfit is perfectly bold for an engagement session. But it gets better: when broken down, each item would be casual enough for the couple to wear later on.

The polos take a backseat, tucked into the red and blue Rue 21 pants, belted neatly. Socks as cheerful as the pair and matchy-matchy grey toned shoes ground the look. On the solid colored bow ties topping the attires, we noticed it's no accident that the red and purple follow the embroidered logos on their shirts. Yup, the little details that matter!

James and Brian met in the summer of 2010 via an online dating website, their first date was nothing overly fancy, they got to know each other over coffee at the local Dunkin Donuts. Soon after James left for the Disney College Program at Walt Disney World and told Brian that he would be coming back for him! They kept in contact the entire time, and soon after James returned to Wisconsin from Orlando they officially began dating. They both decided to move to Orlando, in June of 2010, Brian proposed to James in front of Cinderella castle in 2013 at Mickeys Very Merry Christmas party, which was perfect because that is their "happy place".
