It’s been a long while since I’ve posted so I thought I’d pop on to share some exciting news and fun new pictures. I’m engaged!
We’ve set a quick date for this September and are hustling to get arrangements made and invitations in the mail. We wanted to include an engagement photo but each time we’d set out to take pictures they just never seemed right. I SOOOOOO prefer to be behind the camera and not in front of it and it was getting more and more apparent with each shoot we did. They all seemed so stiff and awkward. I seemed so stiff and awkward rather.
I finally realized for me to loosen up I was going to have to change the feel of the shoot to be something less formal and more fun…the problem was I WANTED the pictures to feel formal. Getting married is a big deal. Anyway, here’s what we came up with.
Justin was a great sport about this shoot…and every other shoot preceding this one, that I made him do, in search of the perfect images. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Not very traditional…but neither are we. I love them.
Funny unexpected side note: So many people mistook our wedding announcement as an announcement that we were expecting (until they READ it of course). In hindsight I can see how blue and pink cotton candy could be misleading. I see an exciting birth announcement in our future though!
