Our Engagement Session by Sargeant Photography

Hi friends!  I know I’ve shown you a few of my engagement photos here and there and links to where our pictures have been featured, but today I wanted to share with you my favorite photos from our e-sesh with Paul and Leanne from Sargeant Photography.  Of course it had to rain on the day we were scheduled to shoot but honestly it made the pictures come out so unique and cool looking, Ryan and I were so happy with them!  We began shooting at a wilderness park in Laguna Beach then moved to downtown.  We finished on the beach with some of my favorite images of the whole day.  Paul and Leanne are truly talented!

I love our sign by Brandy at baybee-dahl boutique.

Aren’t the clouds so beautiful?!  This rain loving girl had such a fun time on our shoot, wish we could do it again!  What do you all think of the pictures? 

Have a fabulous day!



Engagement Session Featured on The Loveliest Day!

Hello!  Guess what?  6 months from today I will be a married woman!  Time is flying by, it’s crazy!

I was so excited when our engagement pictures were featured on one of my favorite wedding blogs, The Loveliest Day.  I love Melissa’s write up for our feature, and of course the pictures are great … check it out here!

Special thanks to our photographers as well, Sargeant Photography, we love how everything turned out.  Take a minute and show Melissa some love on her blog!

Have a fabulous day!



Save the Date Postcards

Good morning!  Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their week so far. 

Would you like to see our save the dates?  I’m really pleased with how they turned out, and have been receiving good feedback on them from our guests.  I stumbled upon Pear Tree Greeting’s website in my search to find save the date postcards.  They did a fabulous job!  I’m considering even using them for our invitations later this year.  They offer all kinds of services from graduation cards, to bridal shower invitations, and children’s party invites.  It’s super easy to create your desired look on their website and shipping is unbelieveably fast.

It sure was hard picking my favorite pictures from our engagement session but I narrowed it down to two different shots, one looking at the camera and the other facing away.

Sneak Peek: E-Sesh with Sargeant Photography

Good morning!  How is everyone doing today?  I promise I haven’t forgotten about you, just been busy these last couple of days.  I’ve also been working on a post to show you the amazing time I had on Sunday at The US Grant Hotel’s Wedding Showcase, Love Etc.  Hopefully tomorrow I will finish uploading and editing all the pics; there was a ton of beautiful inspiration and so much to see!

So the next item on my wedding checklist are save the dates.  I’m hoping sometime this month we’ll receive our CD with all the images from our engagement shoot back in February.  Until then, here’s a couple of shots that I just love!  A few of you may have seen these already on Instagram, but for those of you who haven’t … enjoy! 

So I think this is one of my favorites.  Totally the “Rainy Day” shot I was hoping for.  And look how cute Ryan looks 😉 Let me tell you, it started to come down after this!

I love those shoes and so glad I wore them that day!  They give the pictures that extra pop!

That’s all I have for now, don’t want to reveal too much, just a sneak peek! 

Have a great day loves!



Valentine Burlap Banner

Is everyone almost ready for Valentine’s Day?  I love all the decorating and DIY projects this time of year.  One fun element I’m loving is Valentine banners and boy do I have a cute one for you!  In fact, this banner is the one I bought for our engagement session/wedding day decor.  The pictures don’t even do it justice, it’s the cutest thing ever!  Brandy from baybeedahlboutique makes the burlap banners, and you can check out her shop here.  There’s all kinds of different designs she sells, all of them unique and oh so cute 🙂

Engagement Session Inspirations

Time is flying by and there’s only 364 more days until our wedding!  Ryan, my mom, and I went to our first food tasting yesterday and it was fabulous!  So many delicious things to try and the best fondue bar ever!  We had so much fun and it only made me more excited for our big day.  Pictures coming soon!

I love looking at engagement photo sessions almost as much as I love looking at wedding pictures.  With my engagement shoot coming up in the next few months, I (well we :)) need to start figuring out the theme and location of the shoot.  There’s so many great ideas out there, and I wanted to share some of my favorites.  Which ones stand out to you?Looovvveee this, so sweet and soft – via 100 Layer Cake

Thanks for reading!  Hope everyone has a great rest of the day!



Water Balloon Engagement Sesh

Engagement sessions keep getting better and better.  I’ve had this super fun post from Ruffled blog saved under my “favorite wedding stuff” for quite some time, and be lucky I’m sharing with you now 🙂

Matt & Julie sure looked like they had a ton of fun for this shoot.  But then again who wouldn’t have fun with water balloons?  The pictures from Daniel Kiyoi came out perfect, don’t you just LOVE it?

Minneapolis Engagement shoot by Erin Johnson

I love engagement shoots that come with props.  This shoot comes with one of the cutest props of all – a puppy!  Jes + Andy incorporated their new puppy Lucy into their engagement photos and they couldn’t be cuter.  It gives me ideas for my engagement photos 🙂

Engagement Session – Jackie & Eugene

Up doing some late night blogging to share the cutest engagement session by Caroline Tran.  Both Jackie and Eugene are ER doctors who love to bake and I just think this is the cutest idea for their engagement photos.  Not to mention I LOVE cupcakes!  Enjoy!

Time for me to go to sleep and dream about cupcakes 🙂
