Engament Photos: This is how it’s done

by Meg Keene, Editor-In-Chief

I’m always dubious about engagement pictures, because I’m not sure what I would do with a bunch of cute pictures of us. I’m going to feel awkward enough displaying wedding photos of the two of us, so what would I do with us in street clothes?

But! I’m really into the idea silly, creative, or narrative photos, and Emily over at Emily Style is showing us how its done. Emily and Rob are getting married this fall in Sausalito, and they are having a variety show at their reception. With giant feather fans.
I know. Pull yourself together. It’s awesome. Enjoy:I know what I’d do if I had these engagement photos! I’d make a tiny blurb book of them.
(Partial disclosure: David and I have our own harebrained engagement photo ideas, but I can’t tell you about them yet.)
