style me bridal : engagement photos
We hate engagement photos…there, I said it!
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.
