All images via Caili Helsper Photography
Ok, plenty of them turned out nicely. We met with our photographer, Caili Helsper, on a lovely September evening for our engagement photos. It was a month earlier than planned because she had a cancellation, so we jumped on the better weather (and then I promptly freaked out because I had nothing to wear!) We’re, well, kind of awkward (I make a lot of faces) but they turned out great.
We got some shots right near 310 S Michigan (the one with the beehive on top!) which is where Shamrock lived when we started dating.
But who wants to look at nice pictures? Don’t worry, we love our photographer–she did a great job on these and I’m sure she’ll be wonderful at the wedding. But now for the most outtake ones she included. (I’m sure there were worse, but these made me laugh!)
I make some stupid faces:
We slope dance (I made it up for my math classes. Next big thing. I swear.):
And there’s a whole series where Shamrock isn’t so much looking at me lovingly as much as looking like he wants to kill me/suck my blood:
And I bet there’s a not-awkward way to touch foreheads…but we don’t know what it is and mostly just look like we’re weirdly putting our foreheads together.
But really, they were awesome. Our photographer is super sweet and she took some great pictures.
How did your engagement pictures go? Did you have to touch foreheads? How do you make that not look awkward?
