Finally: Our engagement pics!!!!!

I am so excited to finally share with you our engagement pictures that we took last September.  These were taken as a favor by my friend who's a photographer but doesn't usually do people, so doesn't want to share her business info.  But trust me, she did a great job and we're so excited to have them!

We did two locations, three outfits each.  I went for a different theme or feel on each of them (I got to be the stylist!!).  You'll recognize the dresses I'm wearing from when I made them here and here.  Here are the pics!
Lots of pics!  I ordered some prints online and still need to put a bunch together for a photo book.  I want to do some in black and white, some in the "vintage" effect iPhoto has.  So hard to decide which ones to include!  I've narrowed it down to 123 good ones, so I'll need to pick 50 or so for our photo book which people will sign like a guest book at the wedding.

What do you think?  Which are your faves?

  4. my favorites are:
    you both lying on the blanket- bird perspective,
    last one with the car and second one in the book store. And the one on the meadow where you're legs are in the air. I like when you interakt as a couple.
    There are a lot of beautiful ones.

  11. Love them! My favorite single picture is the one of your two on the blanket - so precious. I love the patterns and colors and how well-lit your faces are. The library setting is my favorite of the three. Congrats on getting such gorgeous photos!

  14. Congratulations! Sorry, been a silent reader all this while. The ones in the library are so quirky, I love them!

    Favourites would have to be him holding the guitar, he's lifting you in the air, two of you lying on the picnic mat, both of you leaning on the VW, and the second library pic. Whew, that's a lot but they're all lovely. :)

  15. Excellent - from the leaning on the car pic, you have fabulous dancer feet. Who knew!? ;-)

  18. Really nice pics- sweet but not cheesy. I love the library series!

  19. How awesome that he shaved in the middle of your photo session!

    I like the third photo from the top. The way he is wrapping his arms around you to "help" with the guitar just screams "young love!" and looks so natural.

    My favorite is the overhead shot of you on the blanket. Your eyes just reach out of the photo. Very Carry Mulligan!

  21. I love these, but I think my favorite is the one where you are being swung around in the field - it's so fun! And the expression on your face is lovely. You did very good work as the stylist!

  26. I love the library ones, and that dress you have one is seriously awesome! Also wanted to let you know I've put a link to your blog on my blog - probably won't generate much traffic but it's a little way to say 'Thanks for all your hard work!' Cheers!
