Lauren and Darrin
Wedding planning involves tons of decisions that you and your hunny will have to make together before getting to the altar. For many couples it may be the first time money, family relations (where to sit divorced parents at the wedding is a stickler) and other major issues are being thoroughly discussed. While we are all for jumping in with both feet, there is definitely some value to holding off on a few major decisions and enjoying a “wedding-planning-free” engagement period. An article written for The Huffington Post Blog gives some good pointers on what-not-to-do’s for newly engaged couples.
#1 Don’t spend all your time surfing the web and buying bridal magazines. While pinterest is amazingly addictive, you will be overwhelmed by the thousands of DIY options before even picking a color theme!
#2 Don’t plan a major vacation until after the wedding (honeymoon): unless your wedding is several years away, trust me you are going to need to save every extra penny for the fabulous honeymoon you are sure to want!
#3 Don’t allow the stress of wedding planning to ruin your engagement (and potentially your relationship) This may be one our favorite suggestions! Seriously, getting hitched is about celebrating your love for each other, in all the chaos of planning don’t loose sight of that
NOW lets talk about what you should do! – #1 Call our studio and book an awesome engagement shoot!!! #2 Get a killer manicure so we can get some close up’s of your bling and #3 Post your perfectly color corrected pics on Facebook and Instagram! (don’t forget to tag us!)
This adorable couple, Lauren & Darrin did all of the above and their Dumbo engagement shoot turned out perfect. They even threw in some cute number ballons to celebrate their wedding date.
Our photographer had a great time working with the couple as they strolled the area. They snagged some great photos in Brooklyn Bridge Park and on the cobblestone streets of the nostalgic area. We can’t wait to be a part of their big day!
