Our Engagement Photo Shoot

Last week, I shared our "Save the Date" magnets.  But the photo we chose for those was only one of the over 350 photos our amazing photographer, Carrie Draghi.  The shoot took place this fall at Wickham Park, a beautifully scenic park with views overlooking Hartford!
Here are a few of our favorite photos from the shoot:

Now a few "outtakes:"
tackle!
we love this one
Mike found this hysterical article on The Onion right before our shoot, so we were dying when she had us throw leaves in the air.  Please read and laugh.
We were just walking to the next shoot location, and Carrie took this.  It's not quite an outtake, but just a fun surprise to see when we opened our photos.

I'm so excited that, instead of a traditional guest book, Carrie will be making a photo guest book for our wedding with these photos and other favorites from the engagement shoot!
Here's what we did: Meg and Mike's Wedding:
The Proposal
Will You Be Our Flower Girl?
Will You Be My Bridesmaid?
October Wedding List Update
Will You Be His Groomsman?
Will You Be Our Ring Bearer?
"Save the Date" Magnets
Linking up for a couple of Wedding Wednesdays with Kristyn & Mary and Meredith & Jordon!
