Engagement Pictures

David and I met up with our photographer, Sarah Cotherman of Photos by Sarah, on Sunday. She knows a great location that most people would not anticipate. It was a perfect fall day, and we got some amazing pictures out of it!
These are edited from screenshots of our slideshow, so the quality is not the best. However, our images are awesome! I am so excited about them!
All photos are credited to Sarah Cotherman.

We had to get some with the ears - it's part of our story!

The location had an awesome gazebo that gave us these pictures

Of course, with all the leaves on the ground, who can resist?

With a good tree around, any number of things are possible

And of course, some cutesy pictures

And what engagement session would be complete without a kiss?

I have to tell you, I've seen a lot of debate the past few weeks about engagement sessions. I saw one blogger who felt that contrived pictures would feel completely unnatural. True, David and I don't usually stop to throw leaves at each other, or stand against a brick wall. But I have to tell you, this session was so much fun! We got just over 60 pictures in about 25 minutes. I have a couple of thoughts on how to use them. It was part of our package, and I'm so glad we got to do it!

Looks like you guys had fun! We felt the same way about our engagement shoot. Love the leaf throwing ones!

love the pics where you're both tossing leaves. also. when you have kids, do not - i repeat - do not toss your kids in the air like that.

they won't float gracefully down to the ground like the leaves.

true story.

Oh these are beautiful!! I'm a fan of family pictures, and I think it is good to start a tradition of family photos.

I like it! You look really cute. And I don't think that pictures have to all be candid every day moments to be worth having.
