1.) Will I have lost enough weight to be photogenic/pleased with my shots??
2.) What outfit should I wear that will be classic and timeless for years to come? I want to be trendy but I'm sure the lady in her engagement shoot from the 80's thought the same in her acid wash Jordache...
3.) Will Ordy and I be awkward? Stiff? Weird?
4.) WHAT IF I HAVE THE WORST HAIR DAY?! Speaking of hair, will I have it up/down, straight, curly?? UGH!
5.) Will Ordy refuse to do cutesy things? Ha... this is one I always worry about. Because, he'll kiss me on the forehead all the time, but ask him to reenact it for the camera and he says, "no way!"
Anyhow, I was perusing the glorious world wide web and decided to share some inspiration shots with y'all. Now, I know Ordy will not do half of them, but a girl can dream...
I knew from the beginning since picnics are a huge part of our lives (and he proposed during one), that I wanted a picnic themed engagement shoot... at least for a FEW pictures. Then we could do classic pics. We're also huge quilt people so we have plenty to use as blankets :) Maybe even have the Scout in the background...
|All of these pictures (and a lot more) were found here.|
Another idea I was obsessed with since I saw it on pinterest, was the camping theme! I loved that it could be overcast and only add to the charm of the shoot. All you need is some plaid, plaid, and more plaid! I love this idea so much!
Other ideas I love: anything outside in a huge field or on a lake. My sister has a lake with a deck that I always think would be perfect for a photographer to be able to take a shot from... but I'm not sure about the logistics of it all!
|Love the tall corn around them|
|I just need a boat like this!|
|kind of even looks like us from behind (minus how tiny the girl is ha)|
|words can't even tell you how much i love this pic|
|we're looking high and low for an ampersand to use either for pics or wedding|
Can I tell you what we're NOT a fan of? The headless shots... Sure, they're artsy... but I think it's too much... So disregard any of the headless ones.
And finally, the one picture I will recreate because I'm just so obsessed with how much it reminds me of Ordy and myself...
