Linking up with Elizabeth today
over at Life with Elizabeth for Bridal
When thinking of when I would debut my Engagement Picture
sneak peak shots that our photographer posted on Facebook
I thought there would be no better time than
on Valentines Day and also on Bridal Talk Tuesday.
How convenient that these are on the same day today! :)
A little history first.
Maria Glassford of Maria Glassford Photography
was the first photographer that [KP] and I met with.
I knew I wanted to meet with her first because she was
my #1 choice. I was intrigued by every photo that she
posted on Facebook and stalked her page for new
photos long before we were even engaged. (Every bride
is a stalker, dont deny it!) So we met with Maria after
we had been engaged for a few months. I planned a Friday
out for us to meet and we met with her first thing in the
morning and I had plans for us to meet with two
other photographers that day. I wanted to meet
with all of my favorites in the same day so
that I could compare them best that way.
We talked with Maria like we had known her
forever.. and we actually knew a few other couples that
she had photographed. After we talked with Maria we
got in the car and [KP] looked at me and said "Ok,
my mind is made up. Can you cancel the appointments
for the rest of the afternoon?" At that point I knew
Maria would be our photographer. But of course, like any
good bride does I proceeded to go to the other appointments.
But I just didn't feel a connection with any of the other
photographers like I did with Maria. Her photos capture
so much emotion and I wanted the same things to be
captured on my day. I also loved that she was
a detail-oriented photographer. I love details! And
boy will there be lots of them to capture on our big day.
Now- the good stuff!
I hope you enjoyed them as much I did!
Happy Valentines Day!
