I didn’t really want to do engagement photos. I really didn’t. I mean, if you’re not sending Save the Dates, what’s the point?
But (and there’s always a but with wedding stuff, isn’t there?) our wedding photographer Ashley includes them for free and since free is my favorite price, I thought, eh why not?
Then I realized that this was a great opportunity to have photos of our whole family i.e. DOG PHOTOS. So I asked Ashley if Archie could come along. Ashley said “of course!” because she’s a dog lover too.
Plus Archie improves every photo he’s in and immediately becomes the center of attention so it was definitely a good move for us.
^ If it wasn’t a super cheese ball move, I’d totally send this picture with a note from Archie: MY PARENTS ARE GETTING MARRIED! Love, Archie.
Doesn’t he look so happy? Oh gosh I love him. I LOVE N TOO, obviously.
BRB gotta go love on my pup for a sec.
….10 minutes later….
^We love our city. This one is a strong contender for our favorite.
^A little beginning of the session coaching. Archie just wasn’t so sure.
^Let’s be honest. This one is going to be my Mom’s favorite.
^Get a room.
And just in case you think I’m getting too full of myself, here is my absolute favorite photo of N (it’s his real smile!) with my DOUBLE CHIN on full display.
I’ve been told I could probably ask Ashley to edit it out but that seems a little unfair to my chin, now doesn’t it? It was just trying to get in on a good laugh.
I didn’t think I was going to love these as much as I do. It’s probably because Ashley was so fun and easy to work with (Seriously check her out if no matter where you are located. She loves to travel!) and I feel more prepared about what to expect on our wedding day (just like she said). But now I’m that girl looking at her engagement photos all googly-eyed and trying to keep her inner bridezilla in check. I love it.
If you want to see more photos from our session, pop over to Ashley’s blog. There’s more Archie. I know you want to.
p.s. Now we’re sending Save the Dates. OOPS.
