Do you know how hard it is to narrow literally thousands of engagement images from our fantastic couples down under 100 favorites?! Super duper hard!!! It has stretched our brains and our hearts to the limit!
But that being said, this is one of our favorite posts of this entire year. Why? Is it because we get to put so many gorgeous images in one place? Well, that’s part of it. But that’s not even our favorite part! Our favorite part is the way it touches our hearts. When we scroll through this post, we are looking at the faces of our friends. We are looking at images of the sweet, amazing people we got to spend our life with this year. With each image that passes across the screen, we are remembering the little moments that made that image special. The joke that Ryan told to get that genuine laugh. The fitness-trainer-like intense encouragement that Alyssa was giving them as their smiles were starting to tire out. The “Shake It Off” Taylor Swift that Ryan was singing (and sometimes even dancing!) in the background to keep everyone’s energy up.
But most importantly, the stories behind each and every one of these smiling faces. There’s a first date sometime in each of these couples’ past. There was a day that he got down on one knee and popped that all-important question. And whether their wedding has come already or if it is yet to come, we pray that stories will continue with love and passion for eternity. And we pray that these images will be a constant reminder of their love!
So don’t just scroll though these images. Rather, let your mind imagine each story as you let each image cross your screen. Because the most important part of an engagement session isn’t the images. It’s the people. And these are 42 people that we love dearly. So enjoy!
