I could post all of our engagement pictures. ALL! But here are just a few of my favorites. I love them so much & I can't wait for how our photographer captures our big day! She's so sweet and made us feel so comfortable during them. Austin and I take pics together here and there but this was obviously different. Being asked to basically make out in front of the camera and someone else during an intimate moment can make people nervous.
I have heard from so many people that they like to take a shot or have a drink before to loosen themselves up a bit; I thought about it but decided we would be fine without lol. The hardest part of all of it honestly was what to wear. I had bought this dress a few months earlier and was like hmmm maybe I'll save it for this or a shower or something. The week of came around and I was so incisive. Should we have multiple outfit options? Will I be uncomfortable in a dress and heels? What if I look back and it's too casual? That's why I went with my gut instinct though and wore the dress. I wanted them to feel slightly bridal but not over the top as to capture our true style.
We also didn't want to do the same locations everyone around here does. Nothing too country/outdoorsy looking, but not too classic downtown Bentonville vibes either. We are always looking for new places to shoot here anyways so we went with a different downtown feel and found SO many places and cute spots all three of us were shocked at every corner. Aesthetic on point & we will be back (already have been hahaha).
Needless to say, I'm obsessed with how they turned out. Thanks Kailey for doing our shoot & we can't wait to enjoy our day with you in May!
