We got our proofs for our engagement pictures back today. They look awesome! Evan Baines did a great job and we can’t wait for him to shoot the wedding. Looking at those pictures just make me so happy, Jennie is absolutely beautiful and we have such a good time together. She is going to be such a great wife, I’m excited and so very blessed!
This past Saturday, Chad and I went down to Nashville for our engagement pictures. We were originally going to have Ashley (Chad’s sister) take them, but we ended up getting them as part of our wedding photography package. After seeing some examples, I was excited about taking them. I thought it would be nice to have some pictures up around the house where Chad wasn’t in a tux and I wasn’t in a white dress.
When we got there, Evan had some cute scenes all ready for us. He told us where to stand, but said that he wouldn’t be directing us very much. He simply said, “Every time I click, do something different, and if you feel inspired to kiss, go ahead.” Well, after about 10 shots, everyone realized that we really needed some directing. Chad was trying, but all I could do was smile and stare at the camera. We just didn’t know what to do. It was very awkward trying to look all lovey-dovey in front of a couple photographers. The most uncomfortable time was when we were asked to dance. We felt really silly as we barely swayed to some jazz music.
As the day progressed, it got a little easier. The last pictures we took were at Percy Priest Dam. We stood together on a little rock peninsula and looked out over the water. It was a little chilly, so we held each other tight. The best part was the photographers were at least 10 feet away, and we never knew if they were shooting or not. It almost felt as if we were alone. Later that night, Chad’s dad asked, “How did your dam pictures go?”
Evan said he probably shot about 600-700 pictures of us that day. From what he showed us on his camera, they look like they’re going to be great. I can’t wait to see them and share them with you all.
Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything. Well, I have big news. We bought a house! Yes, we will be homeowners when we close on March 17th. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to us! It is a very cozy and cute brick house here in BG. This will be my first house, and I’m so excited. We will have a couple months to get it ready and get moved in before the wedding. This house will be the “Webbs’ residence,” so neither of us will live there until we officially become the Webbs. This was the first house for the couple we bought it from too. I can’t wait to be Chad’s wife and live with him there! He has done such a good job of getting everything taken care of with the house, and I really appreciate it. It’s fun to have a mental image when I think about our future together.
I know the wedding is not that far away, but I’m so stinkin excited that I wish it were here tomorrow! I love you, Chad!
To save 12 bucks a month I have shut down this old site. It was a hard decision, but whatever, the three people who checked it out can check out the updates here. I have promised Jennie not to put “stupid” stuff up on here until after the wedding. I plan to eventually bring HDJ back…eventually.
Our offer on the house wasn’t taken, so the search continues.
