Toadtally Us: Couple Portraits

After the first look it was time to get some portraits.

It is very popular around here to get the couple’s shoot days before the actual wedding day, in a different location. But every time I heard that, all I could think about was having to pay for hair and makeup twice, and having my groom see me dressed as a bride days before our wedding day; I was not going to let that happen. So we agreed to have the shoot the day of the wedding at our venue—luckily our venue is gorgeous and has great spots for beautiful shots.

We are awkward people. We are not posers and we act goofy when others are looking, so I am amazed at how romantic these photos look.


Little did you know we were making faces and sticking our tongues out at each other when this was taken.



See? we are awkward posers, but this photo sets the tone for the next one:


Mr. Toadstool said we absolutely needed to have this shot. Truth is I fall all.the.time, like I’ll be still one moment and the next I’m halfway to the ground, and he’s always catching me, so it was only fitting to get this photo.




And finally a pop of color. There was a blooming bougainvillea wall in the parking lot and it made for gorgeous shots.





Are you getting photos taken at your venue? Would you consider having the shoot before the wedding day?

    You both looked so blissed out — in an awesome “we’re getting married!” way! Absolutely gorgeous photos.

    Sooooo pretty. You were such a beautiful bride! Your perfect tendrils of hair around your face are too perfect.

    And your photos look so heavenly Mexican… warm and loving. You two look so in love, it is priceless. :) We also had photos at our venue and I can’t recommend it enough when the scenery is there!
