Stroll down Memory Lane - Engagement Pictures

When we were wedding planning and finally decided on our wedding photographer (Keira Lemonis) she advised us to schedule a date for our engagement pictures. I remember Sean asking why we needed that and she said that it would give us an opportunity to work with her before the wedding. I wouldn't have dreamed of asking such a question because well you know ... the more pictures, the merrier. Oh yeah, that's just my motto.

I also remember Sean saying that it would be awkward. And I said, "nah, just pretend we're models who do this for a living". I think Sean took me seriously and you'll see why shortly. And unfortunately for you I could not narrow the pictures down enough so you'll get a million of my favorites. Well, not a million. Just 25, I counted. See? I'm kinda considerate ;).

Have you ever seen him look more cooperative for pictures? Yeah, me neither. The best part was that we actually had a good time. Of course Sean had to say a few crazy things during the shoot but I'm thinking our photographer did not mind as she still showed up to shoot our wedding. Yeah, and let's pretend that you didn't notice that a bug bit the crap out of my upper left eyelid the night before our shoot. I just pretended that I was a model with a lazy eye. Highly possible, right? ;)

LOOK AT YOU TWO! The second one is my absolute favorite <3 Now go make some Dominic's :)

Cece said...

You got some really great shots!! He even got to make his funny face. We didn't do engagement shots. His choice not mine! But when we did shots before the wedding we felt awkward at first but after a while you forget about the camera and it gets funner and more relaxed.

Ashley R said...

These are all so great! I love that dress!

Pegster said...

OMG, the cuteness of this post is killing me. You guys are such a sweet couple and I just love how much fun you have together. Loving this trip down memory lane

PS - That pic where Sean is making a face had me dying. He couldn't possibly keep it all cutsie cutsie, such a Sean touch, I love it :)
