I'm thrilled to be heading to my old neighborhood in NYC Friday for our engagement shoot with my fave photographer, Tec Petaja. He is also our wedding photographer, and I'm super excited to meet him in person after months of emails.
At first, I was on the fence about the whole notion of engagement photos. When I looked at wedding blogs, I got overwhelmed by how highly stylized some of the shoots looked... and while beautiful photos of couples eating macaroons on quilts with old typewriters are amazing eye candy... it isn't who Bry and I are as a couple. We're much more beers and burgers with a jukebox!
But after seeing Tec's artistry as a photographer, I knew that we could be ourselves and he would just capture beautiful shots of us in a place we love, the West Village, during this special time in our lives. Plus, we couldn't pass up a chance to meet Tec before our wedding.
Now I'm just a few days away from the big shoot, and trying to throw together a few outfits.
I would love your thoughts on any gorgeous classic dresses you may have seen out there. Oh... and I did pick up that Marc Jacobs number I posted about a few weeks ago... and it was half off!
UPDATE: The shoot got postponed... can't wait to let you know when it gets rescheduled!
