I know I’ve said it before, but I just have to say it again – I absolutely adore engagement sessions. When you love something this much, you have to shout it from the rooftops whenever you can. Especially when you’re smack dab in the middle of basking in what can only be described as an uber-gorgeous e-shoot with two of the cutest lovebirds you’ll ever meet, beyond pretty images by Willow Tree Photographs and one fun-filled moment after another. (Pillow fights anyone?) This is what I call e-session perfection and you can see it all right here.
From the Bride-to-Be… My fiancé, Pete, and I took our engagement pictures a few weeks ago and could not be happier with the images we just received in the mail. Our pictures were photographed by the amazing Nicole of Willow Tree Photographs. She helped us find the perfect place to capture our story, and we love her so much for that! From our homemade sign made from a wooden pallet and chalkboard paint to our love for the outdoors and fishing, here’s some insight from me on what made this day so special.
First of all, this session could not describe Pete and me better. We are two people who are head over heels in love for each other and live to have fun every day The pillow fight pictures really seem to show the playful side of us, and it was nice to see that even Pete was having fun and not worrying about the camera. One sentimental piece that really stands out in these pictures is my grandmother’s purple lapis necklace that was given to me the day before our engagement shoot. She had actually passed away the week before we were scheduled to take our pictures, and my sweet mom gave me Nanny’s necklace to keep and cherish. Little did my mom know that this necklace matched my dress perfectly, so I decided to wear it for some of our pictures. My mom was so touched when she saw the pictures of the necklace. These pictures will forever hold a special place in both of our hearts.
The funniest moment of the day is when we realized that someone loved our wooden pallet so much that they decided to take it home with them. Pete and I worked on this sign for hours, and we had a great time making it together. At the end of the shoot, we went back to get our prized possession, and it was gone! I hope whoever has our sign now is enjoying it as much as we did! The sign sure made for some great pictures. Pete’s favorite pictures are the fishing pictures as he is a HUGE outdoors man. He actually picked out these outfits for us to wear in the shoot (including mine!), which I think is super sweet! He even accessorized our outfits by bringing our fishing poles from home to use for the day! He’s such a wonderful man, and I just don’t know how I managed to get so lucky!
