Quick Note: We now have this nifty little app (all phones) called “Wed Pics” where you can upload pictures and videos of us/for us. If you want to join in, the code is Gildea. There’s albums for when we were dating, our engagement pics- and further down the line ceremony/reception/etc. Think of it as a wedding Instagram, pretty cool.
I felt like a personal blog today…I dunno why.
I’m hoping I’ll have time later on to put up another one with some pics of another recent session but in the meantime…
Most of you know I’m in the beginning stages (or the “throes” I guess) of planning a wedding.
It’s not a secret this is my second marriage.
But, what is very different this time…is pretty much everything.
On an emotional level most of our family & friends say it’s pretty obvious
on a totally different level, the actual wedding planning level, this is all so foreign to me.
I have to give you full time wedding photographers
props MAJOR PROPS for what you do
I have photographed plenty of weddings but doing this day to day would probably kill me.
Don’t get me wrong, I love everything about the details and the symbolism of a couple’s life together
(but I’ll be honest, it’s overwhelming. And pinterest might be trying to secretly kill me)
So off the mush.
There are some things I find downright cheesy.
Or a total waste of time/money/energy.
When we started looking on Pinterest (yes, it’s killing me) for engagement pic ideas…
we kept joking about all of the “I said yes” and “She said Yes” photos.
Our wonderful photog Stef even suggested some snarky ones.
I was in sort of a mood today and I thought I would make this
Cause let’s be honest ladies, yes is not the first thing we normally say.
Although this was my first time being proposed to, I know I didn’t say “yes”
But I found out…”I said you little $*%&*!” and “I said you sneaky $%*&!” didn’t really fit in scrabble tiles.
So there, it’s a snowy day in Denver.
And I have been off my foot for a week and feeling weird about not shooting much.
So I did something for me, to make me smile.
And here are a few more engagement pics from the fantastic Stefanie Newcomb to make you smile
PS. Please note ALL photos in this post except my silly scrabble tiles are by the very talented Stefanie Newcomb
