Engagement shoot overview: I managed to blowdry my hair just fine (investing in the right hairspray didn't hurt). The makeup was photo-ready, but not quite pro-perfect (oh well). I hoped against hope that I could succeed in my fake eyelash application attempts (no, I couldn't). It turns out that folks use props in engagement shoots for a reason (the cupcakes were an amazing distraction that helped a lot). When we got home - with our raw file photos in hand - I spent a good hour simultaneously freaking out about my crows feet (when the eff did THAT happen, and why are they apparent in nearly every smiley picture - which was most of them) and reliving the fun and of a great afternoon with Jason via tons of joy-filled, beautiful photos. We had some fun being schmoopy, we had some fun being artsy, and we had some fun being goofy. Although we haven't had a chance to edit them, here's an untouched sneak peak.
