What We Wore







On Her: Dress(similar)//Shoes//Bracelet On Him: Shorts//Shirt

Everyone keeps telling us that being engaged is the worst and it sucks and I mean to a newly engaged couple it is kind of hard to hear. Although I can totally understand where they are coming from. Now that there is a ring on the finger and promise of forever, all you want to do is get forever started! I am probably the luckiest girl though to have a fiancé who always reminds me to just have fun in the moment and to soak up the being engaged phase because who says you can't always just be having fun! I do however just want the day to finally come so I can see all of this planning come together and see his face when he sees me in my beautiful white dress for the first time. But, all of that will come and in just eighty-six short days. I mean…who's counting? In the mean time we are having fun being engaged and making all the plans for our forever future! It really is fun. Stressful and fun and exciting all at the same time. The most fun we have had so far has being taking our engagement pictures with the ever so talented Lori Romney Photography. She was such a dream to work with and speaking of dreamy, this location was stunning! We loved every minute of it. 

When it comes to engagement outfits it really can be hard to decide what to wear. For us we were doing this gorgeous location which meant we didn't really have to be all dolled up. I still wanted to look fresh and to stand out but to keep things casual at the same time. So this light summer dress was the perfect choice for me (shout out to miss Ariel for helping me out) and then I knew we were going to be riding a bicycle so a cute flat shoe was the way to go. Let's face it…you never see me in heels always. As for the fiancé I wanted him to feel as comfortable as possible in front of the camera since we all know just how much men dread having their pictures taken. I did however push him just a little out of his comfort zone with a bright read short. But daaaang that man of mine looked good! All in all I think the most important thing when it comes to engagement photos is to feel and LOOK like yourself and to dress for your location.

I also found that it makes for a more relaxed situation if you have something fun to do as a couple. Like riding a bicycle! Our cutest pictures were just of us having fun and being silly together. So props people! It helps so much to just relax and have fun together! 

What's next on our list of fun engaged people things? We are on the hunt for a food truck to cater! So watch out food truck world…we are coming for you! Stay tuned to see what we find!

  1. I so wish we had used some more props. We brought a picnic basket and some mason jars so we could sip some wine, but that was it. I wish we had involved a bike or something!
    Oh, and I always thought being engaged was so fun! Haters gonna hate! ;)

    1. I agree, haters are gonna hate or stress you out unnecessarily. I loved being engaged! It was a time when everyone was so excited to celebrate our relationship and it was fun to call each other fiancé.
      Btw, I love your pictures. You too look beautiful and so sweet together.
