there are different milestones along the story of our wedding that make me ask, is this real life? when we booked our venue and locked in our date; when i bought the dress; when we took our engagement photos and now, when i’m looking at our engagement photos. this is real life. i’m getting married! so much excitement. so much to share. so much love. on the docket for today, my dear friends, is our engagement photos.
as mentioned our photographer is the incredibly talented, Matt Addington. we decided on Loring Park area near downtown Minneapolis for the location; we could get some nature backgrounds, city backgrounds, and could have #starksthepup join us for some. after lots of Pinteresting, some fashioin consulting from my stylist Tash, and a trip or 2 to the mall [b] and i were all set with 3 outfits (much to [b]’s dismay – he was hoping for just one. that was cute.) changing in the car proved to be interesting but i made it work and thanks to our friend doogie who came with to help try to wrangle #starksthepup. and to hold my purse. thankfully the weather was perfection and fall colors in minnesota never looked better. it was so much fun and despite the pup being an absolute lunatic, we even got a couple good ones with him.
we got all the proofs from Matt on Monday and i don’t feel like it’s any sort of exaggeration to say that i’ve looked through all 371 2 or 10 times. i couldn’t have imagined them turning out better. matt captured our crazy little family exactly as we are. thank you so much, matt, for putting up with a lunatic dog and a ridiculous couple who kept sticking there tongues out at each other and creating these beautiful images. cannot wait for you to capture our wedding day!
