Next Monday, we Thimbles will be meeting with our photographers near our hometown for some engagement pics and to get comfortable in front of the lens in prep for October.
In the meantime, Mr. Thimble and I took a stroll around our neighborhood a couple months ago with our good friend Duane Tollison to take a few key “urban” shots for what will eventually be a nice little collection of engagement pictures. And, because apparently, we needed some practice.
Round 1: The sign, a blue door, and a corner near our apartment”¦
It was imperative since the day we moved here that we get engagement pictures in front of this zany sign. (We weren’t engaged yet). I know we’re small in them, but it’s really more about the sign than us.
Then we found this blue door we didn’t know what to do with:
Look, we’re in the door frame! Arty, right??
Are you”¦ looking straight at the camera and”¦ smiling?
Here, I admit door failure and skeedaddle outta there. I still think I was onto something.
And finally, for the traditionalists:
Communication breakdown”¦ GO!
This whole shebang took about 20 minutes. Honestly, that’s not too bad for being stressed out and unprepared, if I do say so. Duane did an amazing job. Thanks Duane!!!
I leave you with the owl outside our window, and our comically unpracticed dip in front of the Chinese I Love You Stainless Steel sign:
Do these pictures bode poorly for our future engagement session back home? Did anyone else have to shake out the sillies a few times before they could get some worthy photos?
