Engagement Pictures (Erin) (Archive)

This past week in Huntsville has been extremely busy. We decided on a caterer and a florist, but the most exciting thing was taking our engagement photos!

Tuesday we went out to Camp Maranatha (for those of you who don't know, this is where we met while we were working together) to walk around and reminisce and think about the special places we wanted to get photos at.

Tuesday night and Wednesday, though, we were nervously watching the weather. It stormed on Tuesday night and they predicted rain on Wednesday, but thankfully it cleared up and we had perfect weather for our engagement session!

We had no idea that taking photos could be so much fun! We had such a great time and enjoyed walking around finding great spots for pictures! We had to do a little trekking through the woods, too. ;)

We know that we got some amazing images (Simply Bloom photography is incredible!), and although they all won't be ready until September or October (they are taking a bit of a vacation after a busy summer) they did post a sneak peek of upcoming sessions with one image from ours included!

Go to their blog post a scroll down to see one of our images! Let us know what you think, and we will let you know when there are more to see!

Busy, Busy, Busy... (Gerrit) (Archive)

Hello everyone!

It's been awhile since we've posted, but there is certainly good reason for it! Erin and I have been finishing up summer school recently, but as you are certainly already aware, sometimes "vacation" can be busier than normal life. We each were overwhelmed with work during the July term (I was taking two classes and working 20hrs per week, Erin was taking two classes, working, and doing undergrad research).

Now that we're home, we've barely had a moment to stop and breathe. Between our younger brothers getting ready to move into their respective colleges and trying to find the perfect dress for Erin for our engagement photos (which are supposed to happen on Wednesday, weather permitting), we've been moving non-stop. Today we have an appointment with a caterer, so you can go ahead and throw wedding planning into that mix as well.

Of course, despite the "go-go-go-ness", we are certainly enjoying having these two weeks off in between semesters to spend together.

Hope life is treating our faithful readers well...
