I am sure it hasn’t helped that I am in the middle of the busiest month I’ve ever had since starting Southern Fete but this whole engagement picture thing has got me going crazy. I see hundreds of engagement sessions from all over that keep me from settling on the tried and true outfit, location, etc.
Nope, Tyler and I have one go around at this and I’d like to make it special. Our goal was to capture our silly side and the best parts we bring out in each other. At least once a week I say to him when we are in the middle of a laughing fit “We have fun together!!” in this silly voice.
I feel lucky that our time is so full of fun and laughter that I’d love for that to come across in photos. With a few other factors thrown in.
Could we please take them somewhere that showcases who we are (i.e. where we met, favorite outing) and can it be over the top beautiful (i.e. the French countryside or Spain, I am pretty jealous of you, too, California)? The pickins are slim here in Louisiana. Don’t get me wrong, as you can see from these fantastic engagement photos by Mark Eric, there are beautiful places to shoot in Louisiana. You just have to do a little more hunting. : )
So that’s what we did. Well today is the day for our engagement session. Can’t wait to show you what we came up with. Did I mention Mark will be shooting our engagements along withJason Cohen?? I am giddy just thinking about what kind of goodness they’ll whip up.
P.S. If you are trying to figure out what to do for your engagement shoot, check out Mark’s post here on picking locations, clothes and of course your photographer.
