Real Engagement Week :: Amanda + Dan

Happy Monday! This week we will be posting real engagements all week long. I think one of my favorite part of my wedding planning was my engagement photo session. Not only did I get to spend half the day with my fiancĂ© walking around town being all lovey dovey, I also get to keep these images that capture our love and our story. I have these pictures all over our home and they still make me smile every time. So when you’re planning your engagement session, whether you’ll be using props to tell your story or just let your love shine through, make sure you’re comfortable and in your elements. There’s nothing worse than forcing yourself to be a certain way or do certain things that would make either of you uncomfortable (for my husband and I, we don’t like the sand, so no sandy beach for us!).

So onto our first real engagement! Amanda and Dan wanted to do something incredibly romantic, so their photographer Rose of Simply Rose Photography picked this amazing field of tall grass and set up a cozy bed and rustic chair for their session. LOVE! Now that the weather is getting cooler, I SOOO wanna be under that blanket in a big field of grass! So irresistibly romantic!
