The Final Four

Hi Gang!
Here are the final four pictures of Lindsey and Matt's engagement pictures.

I have really enjoyed these photos. I hope you have too. One of the things I hope all of you brides-and-grooms-to-be will take away from Lindsey and Matt's shoot is how the focus is on their love and happiness.
I know when I was trying to figure out what to wear for my engagement pictures I didn't have a clue how to dress or what to expect. The last time I had engagement pictures taken of me I was 19 and we had a coupon for the Dillard's portrait studio. Yuck!
I love how they are both dressed nice, but still comfortable enough to try out different poses. Think about that as you are shopping for your engagement portrait outfit. And did you notice the subtle stripe in Matt's shirt? Think about how the pattern in your outfit will photograph. If you aren't sure then have someone take pictures of you in a few different outfits so that you can see what will work and what won't.

Finally "bug free"

I'm soooooo tired of being sick. I take a handful of vitamins every morning and during this time of year I'll even add Airborne to the mix for the extra vitamin c boost. I know I'm stressed and run down which doesn't help but I also work with some of the sickest people I've ever met.

Since Christmas I've had 5 count them 1, 2, 3, 4, freakin 5 DIFFERENT BUGS because these people come to work hackin and coughin and spewing germs everywhere (and yes some of them had just spent a week at home with their children who had the swine flu) instead of staying home and using their sick days for SICK LEAVE. Argh. I've never seen so many people in one company use their sick leave for hangovers, extra vacation days and my favorite...a cut and color. It's so frustrating.
So TONIGHT I will be posting the last installment of Lindsey and Matt's engagement pictures....even if I have to drink a dozen Red Bulls to keep myself awake and coherent.

Round Two of Lindsey and Matt's engagement pictures

Are you ready for more? Here is the next group of amazing pictures! And a little more from Lindsey....

As a bride on the plus side, I actually found it harder to find an engagement outfit than a wedding dress! I went all over town and couldn't find anything that fit right. I finally found 2 shirts in the Kohl's women's section and jeans at Old Navy. I felt good in them and that's what matters. After all, I wanted to look content and in love, not uncomfortable! :)

I completely understand! I didn't want to go crazy and buy an expensive outfit for our engagement shoot that would just sit in the back of my closet so I bought a pair of nice jeans that looked nice with the jacket that I already had. To finish off the look I wore a tank under the jacket that I've had for more than 10 years. I felt good and and that is all that matters.

Introducing Lindsey and Matt's engagement pictures!

Hello dear friends!

A few weeks ago I received some really great engagement pictures from Lindsey and Matt's engagement shoot. She sent me several pictures and since they are all amazing I will be sharing them with the rest of you over the next few days.

She said...
I love your blog and the idea behind it! I've recently had my engagement photos taken and wanted to share them. They were taken at Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island by Jaclyn and Bill of Robinson Studio and Design.

Thank you Lindsey and Matt for allowing me to share your pictures!
