I’m Gonna Be a Supermodel

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.

Blue Olive Photography

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!

UPDATE: You can see a full slideshow of the images here!

    “I didnรขโ‚ฌโ„ขt even recognize myself at first glance.” Gulp, same here. Blue Photography did post a lot today, so I did scan through more than usual. Their wedding photography is crazy good.

    Wow!! I love the family shot at the end… Nice tongue on that dog.

    You look stunning. These are the best engagement photos I’ve ever seen.

    GREAT pics! You do indeed look fantastic! I have to say, my fave pic of the one on their website is the one where Neil is getting a big wet kiss from your furry friend. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Those folks are amazing photographers – I love all their work!

    Definitely awesome photos. Of course, you look that good ALL the time in real life. Photos just aren’t fair (most of the time).

    Wow, guys… M&R deliver again. I must say, I’m so proud of them — They’ve seriously got incredible talent. I send people to their site just to gawk at their amazing work!

    You two look stunning… ๐Ÿ™‚

    since your regular pictures are this great I can’t wait to see the wedding pix.

    I suppose it’ll be like that tuxedo commercial… everyone’s staring at the bride, and the bride’s the only one staring at the groom.
