Flashback Friday: Our Engagement Pictures

There are so many things that you have to take care of when you are engaged to be married. You have to pick a cake, flowers, location, dress, and more! One of the easiest decisions we have to make was who you take our pictures.

It was decided early on that Jon's friend and roommate, Nate would took both our engagement and wedding pictures. These pictures were taken in the Fall of 2006. It was fun going to the park and having our pictures taken like this. Nate did a great job!! We are so thankful to have him be such a big part of our wedding.

The only regret that I have now that I look at these pictures, is that I was not able to get my weight problem under control before we were married. I was in denial about my weight gain and felt so much shame about it. Many of my favorite pictures were head shots so that people could not see what the rest of my body had become. I'm not feeling sorry for myself, just remembering what it was like back then.

Fast forward, Jon and I have grown up so much since 2006. Who knew that four years could fly by so quickly!!

Here are just a few of my favorite photos.

They look great! I loved my engagement pictures, but still don't have my wedding pictures, after two years of marriage. My Photographer is a PITA and I'm hoping to finally have them this Christmas. Maybe.

Losing Brownies - Thanks! That would be a great Christmas present. I hope you get them. It took me two years to get our wedding video. :(

It's always nice to have someone you know taking the pictures. Yours are so cute!
My sister is a photographer, so I will use the "I am your sister, do them for free" card when the times comes :)
