There are definitely a few photos that I don't love as much as others because of random reasons (my side profile/nose, for example), but overall I feel like they captured our love perfectly. (cheesy, I know!) Even though we've been engaged for a while now, it is nice to have professional photos of us that we can look back on that aren't wedding photos; photos of the two us in "day to day life." I did my hair & make up trial for the wedding prior on the same day of the photos, so that worked out well so that I had help trying to look pretty!
I love pretty much all of the ones where the sunlight is coming through, and I really loved the location. We did it at Green Timbers park, which is where Edwin & I went for a very long walk on a VERY hot day two years ago, and where he proposed to be almost one year ago. I also liked the location because there is a pond (lake maybe? It's pretty small, but people fish!) with a little "dock," and lots of greenery and wild flowers.
Just in case you are wondering how I decided what to wear, let me tell you that was quite the ordeal. I had decided for one outfit to wear the blue & white striped dress you see below, and then for the second outfit, I wanted to wear exactly the second outfit you see, just with a solid bright coloured shirt. Turns out I bought not one, but FIVE new shirts to wear. And guess what? I didn't even love any of them!! Poor Edwin...So, the shirt in the second outfit is one of the five new ones, but I wasn't in love with it for photo purposes. I like the shirt, but was wanting something solid coloured (not striped again) but really struggled to find something! Go figure.
Here are a "few" of my favorites:(and if anyone wants to see more, come on over! I have all 300 available for your viewing pleasure!)
|All of our photos were given to us in both colour AND black & white!|
|I LOVE this one of my ring!!!|
|Of course I wore flip flops - I wouldn't be myself if I wasn't wearing them!!|
|This is the exact bench we sat on on our first date, and the same bench where Edwin proposed to me last June. So meaningful to me!|
Thanks so much to Gary & Louise for taking these pictures!! I can't wait for our wedding day, for so many reasons, but the pictures will definitely be fun! Also, the pictures came on a USB stick with a thank you card, and the most fun packaging:
Happy weekend - hope it's a great one! (don't forget to wear sunscreen...)
