We hoped for good weather, and all Alex and Marianna wanted for their engagement photos was a location that they could take in beautiful mountains. Then the day came for their engagement session and the mountains were not only socked in by smoke, but there was also crazy wind and torrential rain! Not exactly what you want for your engagement photos. We postponed a week out, hoped for better weather, and boy did it ever deliver. I had so much fun exploring around the Pitt Lake area with them, finding the best spots to take in the lake and the mountains. We talked about how hard wedding planning can be and how much time it takes up. So I shared a little secret with them that I thought of about a year ago.
When you get engaged get a jar, every time there is something you think of that you want to do together, but can’t because you need to do wedding planning/errands write it down and put it in the jar. Then over then your first year of marriage, when you have time to do something together, pull a piece from the jar and do what it says! It’s a fun and exciting way of still doing all the things you want to do together.
These two are so natural with each other and I simply love the way their photos turned out! I was great to hear more about their plans and I can’t wait for the April wedding next year!
