His+Hers=Ours: Engagement photo ideas

Happy November! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and are enjoying the holiday tunes! His+Hers=Ours is back to share a few engagement photo ideas with you. Scott and I are less than a year out and earlier this month we met with our photographers from Mi Amore Imagery (one of the photographers also doubles as my awesome sister-in-law and one of my bridesmaids – she’s the best!). To get these engagement photo ideas, we walked around downtown and in a couple parks. We had a great time! Here is a sneak peek of a few. We have to keep some secret for our save the date cards and Christmas cards. :) Engagement photo ideas

Kelly & Jay
It has been a busy month of wedding planning! Jay and I were able to meet with our photographer from Pretty Pear Photography at the end of the summer to do our engagement shoot. We did a sunrise shoot and had an absolute blast. Our photographer is really talented and so much fun to work with. We’ve enjoyed spending some time going over our photos and deciding which ones to use for save the dates, for the guest book, and of course new profile pictures.
Hope you enjoy some of the photos from our shoot, and that they inspire your own engagement photo ideas! Continue reading

His+Hers=Ours: The planning begins!

Wedding PlanningAfter coming home from our engagement/skiing trip we went to my mom’s house to pick up our puppy, Lola. To our surprise, my family and friends were there to greet us with an engagement party. Such a fun way to come home! They had the room decorated with balloons, flowers and signs to welcome us – it was great! For one of the gifts, my friend had bought me this huge binder with everything you could ever possibly need to know about wedding planning – I was slightly (ha understatement) overwhelmed when paging through it. Am I going to need this? How am I going to pull this off?!

Save the Date CardWe got back home late Sunday evening, exhausted, but I squeezed what energy I did have left to play with our save the dates! I know, we don’t have a date, church, photos or reception site picked out, but those things will come in time. All I wanted to do was play with our names and colors; S+D, Scott & Dani, Scott + Dani, save the date magnets or save the date cards? Ohhh, I’m going to love this!

Though they hadn’t thought about a save the date card at that point, the photographer suggested using the framed chalkboard as a prop to incorporate their engagement and wedding dates into the photos–one of the all-time-great save the date ideas! (See our blog post on engagement photos for more ideas.)
