Engagement Pictures

We are so looking forward to seeing Steph from Saltwater this weekend for our engagement pictures! I've gotta say that I've been a little nervous about what we're going to wear. I thought making some mood boards would help me decide. We also had to choose where we would want to have the pictures done...

Jay made it very clear from the get-go that he wanted pictures in front of City Hall. If not a little cliche, he at least does a lot of work here and I'm so proud of all he's accomplished in his career. If this makes him happy, than it makes me happy. It doesn't hurt that pictures on Broad Street always turn out awesome.

Oh, and yes... Blitz will be making a guest appearance in some of our photos :)

The best part about these outfits is that we already own all these goods, and maybe have had some of them for over 10 years... a la Gap Jean Jacket (similar here).

For me: white dress (similar here, here, and here), engagement ring, Tiffany Necklace and Bracelet (both Christmas gifts from Jay), knuckle ring, Joyfolie shoes.

For him: Polo shirt and patchwork plaid pants (Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet last summer and unfortunately, ebay is the only place I can find them), Men's Black Invicta Watch- we actually found at Costco on a random grocery trek but they don't have the same one anymore (similar here), Shoes (Sperry Topsiders - Nordstrom Rack).

We're also planning on getting some of our pictures done at Penn's Landing by the Irish Memorial or around Independence Hall (we haven't quite made that decision yet, but I'm we're leaning towards Penn's Landing).

I'm completely loving the idea of an outfit swap and change of scenery so that when we have pictures from this session all over our house, it won't be like seeing the same one over and over again.

We're planning a Penn State inspired picnic for this shoot, since we both went there and it holds a very special place in our hearts. We Are :)

For me: jewelry (same as above), hat, dress, shoes (Marshall's, similar here)

For him: Shirt, Jeans (Polo Ralph Lauren Outlet), Shoes (Sperry Topsiders - Nordstrom Rack)

Fun stuff: PSU Blanket, Blue & White Striped straws, Football tug toy (Petsmart).

Don't worry, there will be mason jars filled with fun snacks for our picnic and maybe a growler of our favorite beer.
