Visit Rachel here!
Have y'all seen this link up?
I thought it seemed like SO much fun, and then I went "Wait a minute...we didn't have a dang wedding!"
Well, at least not in the sense that they are referring to.
I almost didn't participate, until I realized that I need to represent for the non-traditionalists out there. This is about sharing you personal wedding experience, so that's just what I'm doing!
Who cares that these "Engagement" photos were captured after we were married?
Their essence is still pure...

My Engagement photo tips:
-The Photographer is key-
A great one is WELL worth the money.
If you are going to spend $ on them, invest in someone worth your money.
We were lucky enough to have a very talented friend who did ours for FREE, which is an even better option! As a matter of fact, I even shot my girlfriends photos on a point-and-shoot and with a little editing they were well worth the free pricetag ;)
-Location, location, location-
Choose a backdrop that works for you out of what is available to you. You can do Urban, nature, rustic, country, etc. and make sure that it suits you! Savannah was the perfect backdrop for Carmela and her soldier, and Maymont Park in Richmond, Va. was perfect for us!
Just have fun with them, that will come through your photos.
These are YOUR photos, so have fun with them! People get wrapped up in stressing about every little detail, and although what you wear, location, which photographer to use, weather, etc. are important, what's really important, is that you allow your love to be captured in the photos. Lose yourself in each other and you won't be disappointed <3
Thanks for stopping by!!
By the way, I have some good news and some bad news...
Bad news: Vegas got pushed back :(
Good news: I'm still getting paid for the trip AND now I get to go to my girlfriend's party!
It's a "Wig" party, so there will be AWESOME photos.
Now go see Pamela @ Pamela's Place, because there are just a few days left to enter her SWEET giveaway.
