- Wedding: November 2012
I am new to this site but am loving every post! I decided it was time I get involved and post some things of my own starting with my engagement photos. Unlike most my engagement photos are also my engagement =) I am very proud of my man for taking the time to really plan this out. He is usually the strong silent type so I did not expect this at all.
So the back story… We have been together for almost three years and this past Christmas we had planned on getting a family photo done for Christmas cards. We were proud new puppy owners and we had never up to this point had a professional photo done so it seemed like a cute idea. (Well at least I did)
So we went off to Bowring park in the middle of St. John’s Newfoundland. I the unsuspecting fiancee to be 🙂 We tried several shots to warm up (It was FREEZING that day Dec 11, 2012) We had planned on just wearing our nice sweaters but it was to cold to take our jackets off. Also our puppy Ruger would not sit still for very long. I was like sit Ruger sit Ruger come on sit for the picture.I remeber after this shot I was kneeling down trying to get him to sit for me and Justin took the leash and handed it to the photographers girlfriend so I would focus on him hahaha its funny looking back.
Then he grabs my hands and starts with a speech I am sure he practiced several times but I remember realising what was happening and didnt really listen I just couldnt believe it!
This is where I started to regain focus and listened to what he had to say and I started to cry my eyes out!
This photo makes me laugh every time beucase after all the nice things he said I turned away from the camera. Did I mention it was FREEZING outside plus all the crying made for a messy waterworks. I was like “I don’t want the photographer to get my snots on camera!” haha
A bit more relaxed here and I managed to get Ruger to sit still in this shot as well! I called most of my family right after this bursting into tears everytime I would recall the events! We are set to be wed Nov.24.12 🙂
