The Engagement Shoot

I won't have the proofs for about two weeks, but in the meantime I'll sum up the experience. The day started off crazy. My mother couldn't go with me as planned and I was irritated about that and something else. By the time I got to the make up trial I was ok, but the moment I left and got back on the road, I begin to feel the onset of a migraine.

I was planning to get a manicure on the way home but my head began to hurt so bad and I was running around on an empty stomach {I should have known better}. By the time I got home I felt as though I were going to puke. I barely found the strength to eat a plate of rice and take Advil.

I rested for an hour and then it was time to get dressed. I started working at a slow pace but overall I was just in a funky mood. Naturally {but wrongfully}, I started taking my attitude out on Mr.Golden when I thought he wasn't going to make it in time. We were bickering all the way up until we saw the photographer and then we put on our best fake smile and said, "Hi! Nice to see you again" in unison. {lol, don't act like we're the only couple who does this!}

Comically, the photographer didn't pick up on our beef. Instead, he found an area that he wanted to shoot us in. We got there and he positioned us, then said, "Ok, now KISS!" We scrunched up our faces at each other like two toddlers being forced to make up, neither wanting to be the first to give in. But we kissed and then laughed at how silly we were acting.

The rest of the shoot went off without a hitch. We did two locations and two outfits a piece. I can't wait to see the pictures and share them with you all!

Have a great weekend to all, and much love to The Buckeyed Bride and her fiancee for their wedding this Saturday. Congratulations sweetie. I feel like I know you already! You're going to make a beautiful bride, enjoy your day mama!

Love these kinds of shoots. I did one for the collection a couple months back with a killer case of bronchitis so I know how you feel (had fun anyway even though I passed out). Curious to see your photos. 2 weeks seems like a long time but most photogs take time to edit and refine.
