Engagement Photos!

I hate pictures of myself. I cringe when I know that I'm about to see myself on film. Does anyone else feel like they look differently in real life than they do in photos? It's like when I look in the mirror, I somehow see something that the camera can't pick up. I guess what I'm saying is, I usually feel more pretty in real life, and then suddenly that idea of myself is shattered when I see a picture of myself. Sheesh, do I really look like that? Immediately I want to change everything about myself. My hair, my face, my weight. You know how it is.

But then I have to realize that I am what I am, and I can't change much. And, even more importantly, is that I'll have these pictures for years to come, and I'm sure that when I'm 60 I'll look back at these and think, Wow, I was so pretty. And skinny.

So here are a few of my favorites. He looks great. We look great. Our photographer is wonderful, and was so fun to work with. Now I can't wait for the wedding!


I played around with some Photoshop actions. Have I ever mentioned how much I love Photoshop?

You both look great! And, you're right, you will look back at these photos (way before 60, I might add) and think-"Ooh I was/am HOT!"

With the exception of some hairstyles and fashion trends, Joe and I have aged gracefully. It's been almost 18 years of marriage.I think the fact that we have such an amazing history to look back on trumps late 80's-90's trends exponentially! Best of luck!
