My mom will be most pleased to hear that Neil and I finally got our engagement photos done, so she can snag one to send in with the newspaper announcement she’s been itching to create.
We had absolutely stunning weather as we made our way to Granville Island yesterday with our photographers – the phenomenally talented Miranda and Reilly Lievers of Blue Olive Photography – and spent the better part of an hour giggling and smooching and snapping.
I’ll be the first to admit that I spent the better part of today obsessively refreshing their blog to see when the promised teasers would be up. Partly out of excitement, and partly out of photo-phobia.
I don’t have much anxiety in front of a camera, but the results of the photos afterward generally send me screaming for the hills.
Well Miranda & Reilly were crazy post-heavy today (four blog posts in as many hours – seriously – I was going nuts over here!) and by the time our shots showed up, I didn’t even recognize myself at first glance.
I look…. good! This just does not happen in photographs. I am generally represented by a 6-chinned gigantic forehead. With eyes thrown in for good measure, if you look carefully.
And they made us both look absolutely incredible. Click through to their blog to see a few more of the teasers from the day.
Booking these guys (just in the nick of time, I might add) was definitely one of our better moves, and I can’t WAIT to see the rest of the photos, and what they manage to pull out for our wedding!
