Our Engagement Photos!

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 🙂

  • Wedding reads! The first is from one of my favorite authors ever, @morgamat. I’m so excited that her newest book is wedding themed! The second is my agent-mate, @jasminepics! I’ve heard amazing things about this one! I can’t wait to dig into both. 🤗

  • Swipe left for non-spoilery thoughts on #BlackPanther. In short, it was amazing. Inspiring. Deep. And as someone who has seen almost EVERY Marvel movie, the absolute best! There were so many themes, great costumes, acting and that score!!! Ugh! I’m also so proud to see a fellow South Carolinian (Chadwick Boseman) on the big screen! ✊🏽 #WakandaForever
