    I vote for cute sundresses as well. I would concentrate on just a small portion of the room at a time for your shots, i.e. the settee at the window, the fireplace, the two chairs etc. Check out some wedding photography, you will see windows used to great advantage. Also from my own experience photographing rooms at the club with lots of windows, knowing what kind of light you are going to get would be a good idea as well. You are not necessisarily going to get the smooth even light you see here in real life.

    Also for just $25 for a month, you can watch any of the many experts at Kelby training do what they do. Yeah, I know, I push the kelby training a lot but any of their courses would cost a couple of hundred bucks to go see live.

    I added some test images of the room that I took today.

    Looks like the white might prove to be difficult to control. If you shoot in RAW you wont have to worry about white balance while you're shooting though.

    I must say I find your idea intriguing. The room is wonderful, so white, bright and light. Taking the leap to asking if you can use it and then having a trial shoot is excellent. Your models will look good dressed both ways, and I would try both costumes if you have time. In my limited experience the one most important thing you can do to improve your shots is get your flash off the camera and onto a light stand, using a remote trigger. This will give you a way to decrease the shadows without the complications of the LED continuous lights. Also it will help a lot if you can use a tripod for your camera. But my take on your whole project is that it will ultimately get you some excellent photos, no matter how you decide to proceed. I'm looking forward to seeing the results.
