Happy Valentine’s Day! I thought it was the perfect day to share the engagement photos that me and my fiancé, Rob, took just a few weeks ago! The photos were taken by the lovely Dailey. After pouring through photographers for hours and hours and hours, I found Dailey’s work and found it to be exactly what I was looking for: she had vision, a good mixture of candid and posed shots, used both moody and natural lighting, was actually available for our VERY close wedding date, and she came at a great price point!
It was our first professional photo session in our 8 years of dating – I’ve always said that I didn’t want to take professional photos until our engagement session. As a result, I was a little awkward (surprise surprise) at first, but Daily was such a breeze to work with and soon we both felt comfortable! We had two outfits, formal and casual, but I’m loving the casual outfits just a little more because they felt more us.
We also incorporated some elements of our relationship into the photos: 8 years ago, Rob first approached me on a bench in undergrad, so we took a few bench shots. He’s a drummer and music teacher, and of course y’all know I love books, so we incorporated that as well! I love these pictures and couldn’t wait to share them with everyone. I feel like our personalities really shine through with each photo!
Okay, enough rambling. Here are a few of my very favorite photos from our engagement session (if you think these are a lot, we received a TON. We loved them all, but I’m sure y’all would get tired of looking at some point!) So grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy 🙂
