Engagement Picture Montage

For me, pictures are a way of capturing the essence of a moment in time. Throughout my 26 short years, I’ve come to realize that our time on this earth only lasts so long.  Pictures allow us to preserve memories when they otherwise might have slipped our minds.

I love reflecting on the scrapbooks I made during my high school days, and this blog is turning out to be no different. Ryan values photography just as much as I do, and this is why we decided a photographer was one of our top priorities when we began wedding planning back in January.

I’m not exactly sure how we came across Audrey Snow Photography. I believe I simply stumbled across a picture on a wedding blog somewhere, and clicked over to her website. A few minutes spent perusing Audrey’s work and I immediately knew I had to get in touch with her. Her style is incredible, and talking with her on the phone felt like chatting with an old high school friend.

Audrey and her husband, Michael, are incredible people. They both have such kind hearts, and they absolutely love what they do. In fact, they met through the craft of photography a few years back, and are now growing their own business together.

I am already so grateful to Audrey and her husband. The afternoon and evening Ryan and I spent with them has turned out to be one of my favorite memories with Ryan. Ever.

We had so much fun gallivanting all over Sanibel and Captiva Islands.  I am so glad that we have these memories captured on camera for us to look at for years to come. New memories to reflect on. Just like those preserved in my high school scrapbooks.

If this experience is any indicator of how fun and exciting June 15th, 2013 is going to be… I cannot flippin’ wait!!

Audrey and Michael met us at my  mom’s condo on Sanibel Island. We started off taking some pictures on the beach and on the grounds of the resort (with little Miss Happster by our side!). From there, we moved on to Blind Pass, an area surrounding the bridge that connects Sanibel and Captiva islands. We had a blast shooting pictures at the marina (I may or may not have narrowly escaped falling in), and later headed to the beach for some pictures at sunset.

So without further adieu, here are our engagement pictures!

(Fair warning, don’t go cross-eyed, there are quite a few!!).
