Engagement Photos.

We got our engagement photos back the other day. I don’t have enough words to express how much I love them. There are so many choices that you make while planning a wedding and sometimes you get just a little nervous sometimes hoping that you made the right decision. Well, we had an amazing time taking our photos at my family’s cabin and Ryan was so amazing and made us feel so comfortable during our shoot. I was feeling good about our decision to go with him.

We got our pictures back and I know that we went with the right photographer. I am so happy and so is Cody.

Anyways, I will get to it. Here are a few of my favorites!











I love looking at them. And the fact that we chose a place that really means something to us makes them so much more special.

Engagement Photos.

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.

Engagement Photo Outfits.

I have had a really difficult time finding something to wear for our engagement photos. Well time is up, our shoot is on Monday. I have what I have, and even though I am not 100% satisfied with the outfits I have chosen, they will do.

Thank you all for your suggestions on where to buy dresses. I ended up getting this one at modcloth.

I do have a question though. Grey or textured beige. Super important question over here. Which set of tights do you like better?



What do you think?? I don’t know which I like better.

And then cody entertained himself by playing with his flash.






My fiancé man is super nerdy but I totally love him.

Happy Thursday!
