Exciting news in the home front: The pre-hubs and I got our engagement photos back! We had them taken at the art museum, and they're very cute, if I do say so myself. Since we're such cheapskates, we bought a Groupon for a local photographer, which included five sheets of pictures and three digital images--which really is not a lot of pictures. But in the end, it worked out, because we only really liked a few of the photos anyway. These are the favorites:
I spent last night trying to find frames for the pics. One of the coolest frames we have is one we got as an engagement gift from a couple of very sweet friends. They saw it and thought it was our style (it is!), so they bought it. It feels so personalized and sentimental--a great gift!
It wasn't easy arranging the composition, though. You'd be surprised how frustrating it is to not be able to run out and have more photos printed in whatever size you want. I think I've gotten used to the immediacy of online photo editing and publishing. Oh well!
Here's what I was able to work out:
We still need more photos; we have hardly any of our parents, and almost no vertical shots. Something to work on in the future, I guess. But first, I'll have to find a home for the frame...
On a completely unrelated note, it's amazing how different my paint color looks. The top photo was taken at night, and the bottom one was taken during the day. At night, the wall looks so yellow! (In most lighting it's really a khaki color.) Iiiinteresting!
