This past weekend Cody and I took our engagement photos. We were supposed to choose a place that meant something to us (which is a lot harder than you think it is). We decided to take our photos in Pinecrest, CA, where my family has a cabin. I have spent a good portion of my life up there and Cody loves it up there too. The only bummer about taking photos there is that it is 2.5 hours away. There was a lot of driving involved. But it was good. We got to know our photographer better and he and Ellie sat in the back with him and they got to “bond.” It was a really fun trip. We had a bunch of props, some we didn’t even use. But mostly it was just the 4 of us having a wonderful time in a place that we love.
Ellie got to run wild pretty much the entire time and absolutely loved it. The lake was almost completely empty so many of our photos were taken at the bottom of the lake, which was pretty neat. I have found that it is really difficult to take not silly photos the entire time AND I have a really hard time being super cuddly and lovey dovey in front of people. Oops. Sorry babe.
I can’t wait until we get to see our photos. I have to wait 2 weeks for them! It is going to be a long two weeks. So until then, I have to remember our trip by these few photos that we took.
