One look at you my whole life falls in line. I prayed for you, before I called you mine. I can't believe it's true sometimes… I get to Love You. It's the best thing that I'll ever do.
I seriously get all weepy looking through these photos and thinking of what a gift it is to get to love this man and be loved by him. Wow. God has been so good.
I'm so excited to share some of our favorite photos from our Engagement shoot with you. But first of all, I want to introduce the two amazing people behind the camera that helped capture "us". If you've been following along then you briefly got to meet Seth & Tenielle of Feather & Stone Photography in this blog: HERE
These two absolutely talented photographers have been such an incredible blessing to us and the best addition to our Wedding Dream Team. We have had so much fun getting to know them, and they have made every shoot so comfortable and fun. Not only will they be capturing our big day, but they have helped us gather memories of the wedding planning, and then captured these gorgeous engagement photos I'm sharing with you today!
I hands down believe that one of the most important things that is worth spending your money on for your wedding is your photographers. These are the memories that you get to have with you forever! We are absolutely ecstatic that Feather & Stone was available to be a part of this very special season in our lives. Give them a follow on Instagram HERE and keep an eye out for more special memories to come from our wedding as they share!
I want this blog post to be about the art of Feather & Stone, and to share with you these photos that Taylor and I will cherish forever. But as this is a part of my Wedding Planning series, I wanted to mention my thought on Engagement photos!
As we began the wedding planning process, Taylor was okay with skipping the Engagement photo thing… maybe a little bit of that is because he'd prefer to be behind the camera, haha. But I had this aha moment of why Engagement Photos mattered to me. These will be our first "Family Photos", just us. And yes, we will have gorgeous photos captured on our wedding day, but we will be all dressed up with different emotions running through our veins on that day. Engagement Photos gives a couple the opportunity to just be "them" together. When I received these photos, tears really did fall down my face as Seth and Tenielle truly captured everything about "us". The way I see us in my mind and the emotions I feel that I can't even describe through words were captured in these pictures. I will forever cherish these. This is us, The Leopolds (almost!), in our own little world. Thank you so much Feather & Stone.
Continuing on with the photos, we started at the beach, which is a place that brings both of us to life. And then ended in a field of wildflowers that was a vision of Feather & Stone and I just think these photos are breath taking. I got to wear a beautiful Rue De Seine dress from The Dress Theory in San Diego. We ended our evening with Seth & Tenielle by popping a bottle of bubbly and putting on our every day clothes and snapping a few more pictures… and as much as Taylor prefers to be the one taking the photos, I think we were just caught up in one another, and the cameras were forgotten.
The way you love, it changes who I am. I am undone, and I thank God once again.
I get to love you. It's a promise I'm making to you.
Whatever may come, your heart, I will choose.
Forever I'm yours, forever I do.
And they say love is a journey. I promise that I'll never leave. When it's too heavy to carry. Remember this moment with me.
I get to Love you.
I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Thank you for choosing me and loving me every day Taylor Leopold.
Thanks for letting me share all of this with all of you! The words throughout the blog are from a song by Ruelle. These words are one of the best ways that I can communicate my heart to my sweet Taylor… I can't believe it's true, I get to love this man. What a privilege, what a gift. It's the best thing that I'll ever get to do, and I will cherish it. If you'd like to listen to the song, you can find it HERE.
I get to love you, And to be loved by you.
Forever I do.
P.S. As I had the privilege to share all of these photos by Feather & Stone, I'd love to show them my thanks by sending them some love their direction! So please take a moment and give them a follow and a little love on their Instagram HERE!
