10 engagment photo commandments.

23 Oct

Jake and I are getting ready to take our engagement photos soon and after partially going blind from pinning 1.5 billion photo’s that I love, I think our photographer might hate me and my “ideas”. In the efforts to go against the grain in our shoot; I figured I would make these 10 commandments to Jake:

#1. I promise to not make a heart shape with our hands…in anyway, any form.

#2. I promise to not make you reinact the Notebook, Titantic or any other overly romatic movie.

#3. I promise to not hold a book and make you pretend like we are reading it together.

#4. I promise to not cut your head out of the picture.

#5. I promise to not write our wedding date anywhere on you.

#6. I promise to make you laugh so that you wont have to pretend for a great picture.

#7. I promise to try and love at least one of the photos so you wont have to go through the whole thing again.

#8. I promise to let you wear whatever you want, within reason 😉

#9. I promise these pictures will be more about “us” and less about “me”.

#10. I promise I will love these pictures with you for the rest of my life.

Now, watch. I bet half of these photos will take place because him and I are both too nice to tell anybody no. 🙂

    Great top ten tips! We had a couple of tips not about photography per se, but of the wedding in general:
    1) No horses are to be involved in any aspect of the wedding as we have seen too many funniest home videos on the theme
    2) No stretch Hummers – enough said, and
    3) No expressions of love through stationery!

    My wife and I have been back in Australia a couple of months after an amazing round trip around the States from Chicago to LA…needless to say we loved your country!!!
