Engagement Photos: Part 1

Dress: Francesca's

This weekend, we stole an hour to snap a few engagement photos in downtown Eagle.
Though we could have hired a photographer, it just wasn't going to happen.
We are planning this whole wedding by ourselves,
and an engagement shoot just didn't fit the budget.

Daniel's parents were kind enough to help us out and take a couple photos.
Sure, they're not professional photographers.
But we were comfortable around them.
They made us laugh.
They took their time.
And they captured some beautiful photos.
It was a moment the four of us will never forget.

*Find Part 2 here!*

Steph said...

They got some really great shots! Love them!

Olga said...

You are so pretty! Lovely photos!!

Kym said...

Beeeeeeee-autiful! Ya know what? Professional pics are overrated. Yes, we had them done...but in retrospect I wish we still had that chunk of money! Pro pics can feel awkward and fake, ya know? xoxo

Alli from Life on LeRoy said...

They are beautiful! We didn't have professional ones taken either but I loved how they turned out. I think the more comfortable you are around the photographer the better! :) Love them!

Carly said...

Love these! And good call on saving money on these, we did our wedding ourselves too....and had to make decisions about what to cut!

IdahoWildflower said...

You guys are beautiful! Great dress ;) great photos!

Lauren said...

The photos came out great! We did the same things...set the tripod up and did them ourselves. You two are too cute!

Kait said...

Well hello there most beautiful couple! I love that you're taking the proverbial bull by the horns and breaking social norms when it comes to planning a wedding (i.e. not spending half your life savings on engagement photos). I admire you--GO GIRL!

Vicki said...

Don't you make an adorable & gorgeous couple!!! :)

Lily said...

#1 this is only part one? I can't take all of this adorableness!!! #2 I wouldn't have known these weren't professional. They can out great!!! Plus having a goo time is way better than spending $500 for photos.

Lindsay @ Trial By Sapphire said...

I love that our wedding planning experiences mirror each other so much! We didn't do FORMAL engagement shots either. Time and budget just didn't permit. And you know what? Who cares? :) It doesn't make us love each other any less! These photos are beautiful!

Mallory Castleberry said...

Your ring is so pretty and unique

Allyssa said...

Beautiful photos! For not being "professional" they sure look it!

Baylee said...

That sounds fun having his parents take the pics. Way more easy. And you guys look really happy and carefree. Probably wouldn't have been the same with a photographer and girl your hair looks great! Shiny!

Michelle said...

Your pictures turned out great!

Lindsay said...

We did the same thing! My now father-in-law has a great camera and some mean photography skills so we went to a park with a pretty few and some interesting buildings and took a TON of photos! It was great and so much fun!

Amanda @ Eloquent English said...

Kristen @ KV Confessions said...

We also didn't have a pro photographer, well, at all!! lol our engagement photos are hilarious... but yours are darling!! I'm loving that first one!!

Janna Renee said...

I love that you had his parents do it! That will definitely always be memorable! We had Will's best friend take ours and he was pretty dang talented, so I'm happy that we saved on that too!

Lisa @ MMT said...

You look gorgeous and so happy in each photo! Congrats again on the engagement! If we lived closer I would so want to take your guys photos :) such a fun couple!

Cat said...

Gorgeous. I think I like these more than if they had been done by a professional. These ones just look so natural.

Lauren said...

Great pictures! I definitely understand about the budget. Photography is really important to us, though (that may have to do with the fact that I'm in the process of starting my own photography business, ha!), so it was our splurge. We have to be extremely inexpensive on everything else! I have no idea how some people can spend thousands and thousands of dollars on one day - no matter how important it might be!
