I worked so hard on these. I am so excited to show you!!
Okay, first of all, just because I want them all presented together, here are my STD pics I took when I sent out my STD's in December.
After that was done, I knew I really wanted more. We have such a crazy nerdy personality that I could display through pictures and I had a ton of ideas to make it happen. I wasn't sure if I would do them since it's really an extra cost and I'm on a crazy tight budget. BUT I found a deal on seizethedeal.com that I couldn't pass up. A local photographer that usually does shoots for $150 had them for $45.
I had some more taken by a photographer, J-Wood Photography.
She did a great job. My Fi was more than hesitant. To be honest, he reminded me of a grumpy little kid, but she made him comfortable in front of the camera and got some great pictures. She really helped me show his personality in the pictures as well. It helped that she was almost as nerdy as us :)
We did have tons of fun taking them. I had collected tons of inspiration photos and we used many. I even had a list of shots in order (i.e: outside in dress do these, inside in dress do these, outside in comic clothes do these, etc.) My photographer didn't think I was crazy at all. She actually appreciated the direction. She still had her own creavtiveness as well, it was just so we wouldn't miss any of my must haves in all the confusion of getting shots. And it was kind of a surreal moment of I didn't know what I was doing so I was glad to have it all written down. I realized if I'm this big of a mess on E-pic day, I'm going to look totally insane on my wedding day. I wish I would have taken a few more poses, but maybe I can get something similiar on our wedding day instead, and maybe (cross our fingers) my hair will actually stay curled that day it looks like such a hot mess in these pics.
So I'll stop teasing with all this talking.
