We hate engagement photos…there, I said it! Neither Damien nor I were into the idea of getting engagement photos because he hates having his picture taken and I hate how cheesy they usually are. We had decided against it until I tried to create our wedding website and realized we didn’t have any photos of us together. Not a one. Or at least, not a one that wasn’t at a bar or taken with an iPhone. So, we had to bite the bullet. On maybe the coldest, windiest LA day ever, we recruited our photographer bud Bradley Meinz to take some quick shots. We were miserable because it was so cold and windy!!! But, they had to be done asap because our Save The Dates were in the mail and the website had to be completed. This is the outcome…simple, silly “engagement photos” with minimal cheese factor. Now, that it’s done, I’m really glad we did them. I know when we are old and grey we’ll appreciate having these. Plus, we can laugh at the story of roughing it through the photo shoot.

    Grasie — curious if you’re using a specific service to help you with your wedding website? I’ve heard of a few but nothing that’s blown my mind. Don’t have time to build one from scratch and certainly don’t have the budget to hire someone. Any tips you can share?

    Thanks! Love the site :)
