Fake Engagements

A couple of weekends ago Kevin and I pretended to take engagements again to help Kristin Brown with a video she is making. We took them at Exchange Place in Salt Lake, and it was fun to take pictures in a city since our engagements, bridals and wedding were all in a natural setting.

Kristin was easy to work with, and her styling felt real, not contrived, which is very important when looking for a photographer. Although she took pictures in color, Kevin and I loved the black and white photos the most.

And yes, I had to bribe Kevin to take these. He told me, "I already took our engagements and that was painful enough." Luckily, the promise of Chipotle and a Prison Break marathon was enough to keep him smiling for the camera.

I love that man.

I would love some engagement photos like these. Not that I am engaged or daring but a girl can dream, right?

Emily Dawn said...

I love these pictures so much! And- I had my bridals (and senior pictures actually) taken at that same spot!

You're very pretty!

great shots.

last year we celebrated our 4th year of marriage with an engagement or fake engagement session and it was so much fun! It's different when you've been together for a while and you take these pics. The excitement is still there, you're just more comfortable. You guys look very comfortable and in love in your photos!

I LOVE these! Your hair is gorgeous in them!
Once you're married, you need some non-wedding, non-engagement photos.
