So, you get engaged! YAY!! You set a date! DOUBLE YAY! You plan the entire wedding… TRIPLE YAY!! Your Fiancé agrees to do engagement pictures and you finalize your awesome photographer! Check. Mate. I WIN!
You do TONS of research on the most reliable source for outfit planning… Pinterest. DUH.
You decide where to have the pictures and find the “perfect dress” from LuLu’s (which is the greatest site for dresses… seriously, don’t let my poor choices affect your great fashion!)… You get your hair and makeup done by the ever fabulous Glow Girls and your picture day has the best weather Boston has seen all spring!
Your man dresses in the color coordination you’ve planned, and you set out for a funfilled day of photos in the city!
You take pics in all the traditional poses you’ve sent the photographer from pinterest. You spend the day holding hands and “casually” walking down the pathways in Beacon Hill, you avoid the protests in the city, find the most adorable little streets that depicts Boston in all its glory, you realize that kissing in public is pretty freaking awkward and your guy has the most soulful eyes… which I can honestly say I’ve never spent all that much time staring into!
You get your photos the next day (because your photographer is awesome) and you realize 2 things… One. You made the right decision in picking your photographer, because your photos are gorgeous and Two. that you REALLY MESSED UP in your outfit choice…
FLOWY DRESSES ARE NOT YOUR FRIEND!
WHY. DIDN’T. ANYONE. TELL. ME…………
Ok, Fine, Lesson learned… in all fairness the results were pretty adorable and we got some pretty perfect pics for the purpose of the shoot – the save the dates….
Forever I will keep in mind and share for the greater good the following…. DO NOT WEAR FLOWY DRESSES TO A PHOTO SHOOT. YOU WILL LOOK LIKE A BIG PURPLE GRAPE AND WILL HATE YOURSELF COME PROOFING TIME.
On the upside… I’m pretty sure it has finally given me the push over the edge of motivation I needed to get back to the gym!!
