Engagement/family photos!

We recently got out engagement/family photos back. I LOVE them! I'm so happy we were able to work in a session with Kjrsten before she relocates to London later this month (check out her photography blog here and her fashion blog here). I love that she uses film only, no digital. She is beautiful, sweet, and oh so talented. See for yourselves:

  3. Your engagement photos are fabulous. So unique. My favorite is the Black and White of the both of you. The next one of you is stunning. I love the close up, and your gorgeous Green eyes.

    I love the photo of the two of you under the window holding hands. And the last of your Red Anthro Shoes in the Green, Grass with little flowers. Now that would make a Great Blog Header.

    Your Photographer did such a fantastic job. She captured your personality and your relationship perfectly.

  5. Beautiful photos, and I love that dress! Also, your matching glasses are so cute. I'm looking for a pair of fake!nerd glasses because I love them but don't need them. Best of luck to you and your fiance!

  8. What gorgeous photos (great job Kjrsten!) of a gorgeous couple :) I especially love the b&w one of you two together. And your outfit choices were perfect of course. The Spinning Lace looks lovely with navy and gold, and also with pearls and bright red accents :)

  13. WOW! Those pictures are amazing! You both look so happy together! Film does have such a rich quality to it - that while digital is convenient it just doesn't have that same depth. Having your dogs there too is awesome - they are such cuties. Beautiful!

  15. This photo series is wonderful- I especially like that the photographer seems to have made an effort to capture you in familiar environments with your dogs- the love shines through and you both look smart and fantastic.

    You guys could also be really fabulous poster children for the wearing of spectacles!

  16. Thanks so much ladies! I really appreciate your sweet comments. It was such a fun photo shoot and I really enjoyed working with Kjrsten. Getting the dogs to cooperate was quite the challenge - you should have seen us! Every time another dog would walk by all 3 of our dogs would start barking, jumping, and acting crazy. It was pure chaos, but that's just how it is with our 3 dogs, so I think the images are very true to who we are.

    Laura - you are right! It would make such a cute header. I need to figure out how to make that happen.

    Elle - I totally agree with you. There is definitely something special about film.

    Carly - I love big dogs too:) Sometimes having 3 of them is a bit much, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!

  19. Tammy - Thanks! I felt like it was the perfect dress for the occasion:) Yes, definitely try it with the red shoes.

    Molly - Thank you so much! Isn't Kjrsten great? I have also been an admirer of her for quite some time. When I found out earlier this year that she was moving to London, I contacted her right away to schedule a session. I'm so happy it worked out!

  26. Kristin these pictures seriously brought tears to my eyes... they are absoutely breathtaking and real!! You both just look so comfortable with eachother and so unbelieveably happy.. that it just shows throught these images. I have to say that my favorite is the black and white one where the two of you are together and you are hugging him from the back. AMAZING
