Hey There Good Lookin’

That’s right, we look good…but only when we have AMAZING photographers cracking us up and working their mad skillz.

As I discussed previously, I was completely indecisive when it came to engagement pics. All of a sudden, we were just a few months out from our wedding and I realized it was time to get my stuff together. Thanks to all those who left comments, because it helped me realize e-pics are a great way to document the love Mr. Squirrel and I have. That’s it. No pressure, people. I realized the best possible engagement pics would be ones where we were relaxed and comfortable. We decided to first get some pics at Ballast Point Park on Tampa Bay where there are lots of luscious trees and great views. Then we went super casual and picnicked it up nearby at Fred Ball Park. Thankfully, our photographers were amazing enough to let us end the evening by starting a campfire, complete with s’mores and a few smooches.

Tampa Bay brides, I cannot rave about Sarah & Ben enough. I mean, their tagline is: Photography for Storybook Love. Did you just melt? I did…

They are this adorable married couple who are so in love themselves. They are all about capturing the little moments…the soft smile, the stolen glance. I think our pictures turned out wonderful and, while we may not use them specifically for the wedding, I am so excited to have some printed on big canvases to hang around the house, er…apartment (wah wah).

To top it off…Sarah and Ben are hysterical. They had us cracking up the entire shoot, even as Mr. S was not so gracefully about to let me drop me off a dock. We also had a bit of a trespassing incident, and the women from Grey Gardens chased us away. Oh the things we do for art…

Enough yammering, here are some of our favorites!

All photos by Sarah & Ben













So worth it. I would gladly hire Sarah and Ben for everything…for the rest of our lives. Anniversaries, pregnancies, Christmas cards…heck, maybe just a random Saturday. These are the people to call when you want to document a moment in time that is too precious to forget.

    I love the colors of your first outfit SO much! Seriously!

    Our photographers are a husband and wife team, too, and we just love them – we call them Friendors at this point.
