From my own incredibly biased perspective, Mr. Mole and I have some pretty awesome engagement photographs. They capture our personalities, our sense of humor, and our affection for one another. The only thing that they don’t capture is my engagement ring: Mr. Mole and I had these photographs taken a good five months before he actually popped the question!

Mr. Mole used to work for an ad agency in Milwaukee. Every year, that agency would have a holiday photo shoot for its employees. The resident photographer and other members of the creative team would set up the equipment and scenery and take the shots. Mr. Mole and I jumped at the chance to participate, especially since some of the props alluded to one of our favorite shared hobbies: cross-country skiing. We also decided to allow Tom Boonen to frolic in the “snow” as well. Here’s a sampling of some of our favorite shots.

After we got engaged, we talked about getting “proper” engagement photos done. Then things got hectic: we drove 2,000 miles cross-country with all of our belongings to move to a new city and state, we started new jobs, we planned our wedding. So we decided to use the (awesome) photos that we already had.
So how exactly did we use our pre-engagement engagement photos? I can’t reveal everything yet, but here’s a sneak peek!
When did you take your engagement photos? Are you going to incorporate them into your wedding day somehow? (I am looking for some new ways to use them!)
