First, I have not given up on that other blog I started, but it is going to be a while before I get caught up there.
Second, I think this will make up for the fact that I haven’t posted a picture here for, like, a billion posts.
Third, I consider these more pre-wedding pictures than engagement pictures because, let’s face it, we’re already halfway through our “engagement period”. The teaser pics came out pretty nicely, I think, and I can’t wait to see the rest of them.
Mandi Contreras is our photographer, and she’s an associate photographer with Melissa McClure Photgraphy. We got tons of amazing recommendations on photographers, but we couldn’t afford a lot of them. Plus, the moment we sat down with Mandi, I loved her. She came out to our house after Christmas and we took pictures in our neighborhood and then jaunted over the Old Poway Park. She even got some photos of our pups (nicely groomed just before that last storm hit.. great timing!)
That last one is my favorite… it’s our family! Minus the cats. Look how cute the pups are!
Thanks, Mandi! We had a blast posing and temple-nuzzling, and smiling big smiles all afternoon!
