We were originally going to pass on e-pics, but I got to thinking that FI and I have about 3 total pictures together from our 4 years together (did I mention that I HATE having my picture taken?) Thanks to the lovely vc10um, we found an amazing photographer and decided to go for it!

We spent most of the session in this amazing nature area that's gorgeous and even has a huge waterfall. We did head to the city for the last bit, but it was really windy and my hair kept blowing everywhere. I'm looking forward to seeing the whole session once she gets it edited in a couple of weeks.

Oh, did I mention that there was a tornado watch, too? Luckily it only sprinkled for a few minutes at one point and the storms held off. I'm so excited to have some nice shots of FI and I to frame. Here are some of our teaser photos.

OH MY GOODNESS THAT HOT PINK DRESS! I love it! And I also particularly love the one of you on the bridge.

Wonderful photos of you two!

Like I said before...TOTES FABOOSH!!! :love: :love: :love:

I'm also kinda partial to boys in green polos (FI wore one for our pics, too!)...

I think my faves are the waterfall one, the one on the bridge, and the one where Sarah shot you from above with your eyes closed in the field. Loooooove!

So glad you enjoyed your session with her (and that you didn't die during the tornado watch!)...she's such a blast! And now you have TONS of super-cute pics to put on display before your wedding!!! :appl:

Thank you so much, sillyberry, vc, and amy!

SB, the dress is from New York & Co and I just bought it a couple weeks ago, so I bet it can still be found. :naughty:

VC, I definitely loved shooting with Sarah...I added her as a friend on FB and saw she tagged you too! Creeper or not creeper if I add you as a friend?

I debated the same thing yesterday, so I say NOT CREEPER. :lol:

We just had our consult with her yesterday for our wedding day timeline...she'll be with me for about 11 hours on the wedding day! :appl:

Beautiful! I love the one of you two sitting on the bridge the best! But they are all lovely.

Thank you, slg and blacksand! I'm loving everyone's e-pics, too. Oh and I really like the bridge one, too! I'm thinking we definitely need to frame that one.

VC, that's too funny! I'll add you and you can ignore it if you decide it's creeper after all. :lol: I seriously can't wait to see your wedding pictures. They're going to be so gorgeous! I can't believe your day is almost here!

So cute! I really love the dark and stormy one next to the light pole. I don't know why you hate having your photo taken - you look lovely in every photo!

Awww, thank you, FMS! I have a spectacular talent of looking like a complete idiot in pretty much every candid photo taken of me ever. I guess a good pro photog can help rectify that. :)

Fantastic pics, merilenda! Judging from these I find it hard to believe you don't look great in all pics! :cheeky:

Thank you for the kind words, AN and Thing! You know, I've thought about it, and I think my biggest issue stems from the fact that I suffer from inability-to-not-blink-when-there-is-a-flash-involved syndrome. I've had it since childhood. :)

Ha, such a terrible syndrome to have! I have too many syndromes to count when it comes to posed pictures. Luckily our wedding photographer was a journalistic type so we have a ton of great candids. The posed ones, not so much! :cheeky:

So sweet!!!! I just showed my fiancé your photos and he said,"nice" and then I said, " we have to get ours done" and then he said," omg! I thought the LIW forum gave you too many ideas, this BWW is going to ruin my life" and then he giggled, he hates to have his photo taken!!!! Congrats, you look lovely and you guys make such a cute couple!

Thanks, Ladybug! Aw, that's cute about your FI. We're trying to go as low budget as possible, as we originally weren't going to do e-pics. But you know what? I totally recommend it! Because engagement sessions seem to be very reasonable (compared to all the other out of control wedding costs!) and I think pro photos from this time are priceless!
