engagement pictures

i know i'm way late getting these up here, since i've had the cd for like...oh...6 months?  i dunno, it's been a while anyway.

here's our engagement pictures!  we had a blast taking them.  even kyle opened up a bit and SMILED.  now that never happens.  or at least rarely happens.  in photos.  i mean he smiles in real life all the time, just not in photos.  i'm glad our package included engagement pictures, it was a great way to get to know our photographer before the wedding and see how she works and so she can get to know our personalities a little.

all photos by jackie cooper, check her out at

i think this is one of my favorites.  i look like i have a secret or something...

jackie appeased us by letting us bring along the brats.  look at sly, such a model.

i love this one!

we had an impromptu shoot at the house when we went to change.

i heart sun flare!

another favorite.  we are hoping to get one just like this during the wedding with all the guests in the background!  i can't wait to see that one!

doesn't it look like he likes me or something?!?  :)

this is over by my work, so i threw this one in there, and i love that necklace that i happened to find at my grandparents house the last time i was there.

LOVE!  peaks of the exploration place, looking into the future, and the colors look amazing in this.  it was almost pitch black when she took this, but i love it anyway!

when the boy is away...

...the crafter will play!

so, probably something you don't know unless you have been one of the poor souls that has had to listen to me drone on and on about my wedding, is that i'm pretty much DIYing the shiz outta my wedding.  why?  because i love to craft.  and i love weddings.  and i'm cheap.  so why not?  :)

[that being said, i'm SO INCREDIBLY GRATEFUL for the crew i have handling a lot of the projects that i took on and am now like, "holy crap, i'm getting married in almost insertnumberofdaysatthetime days and i don't have this insertrandomprojecthere done yet!"  they have SAVED MY ASS on a lot of this.]

more on the awesome people helping me out later, but i thought this was hilarious.  i found it via weddingsandcookies who found it via 100layercake (side note: how did i miss this?  damn you google reader and my ability to fly through super fast while trying to decide what to read!!!)  and it's totally appropriate being that i'm going to attempt to tackle over half of my "wedding to-do list" this weekend.

anyway...this is awesome.  and so true.  i needed this about, OOOOOOOOOH, 8 or so months ago.  but that's okay, i'll survive, thanks to my awesome crafting crew!  enjoy.
