So we had our engagement photos done over the weekend and already have our digital copies back. Our photographer, Mandy Fierens, did a fantastic job and we couldn’t be happier. She is also shooting our wedding next year, so now I’m extra excited for photos for the wedding too. Also, here is her facebook page. 

Since we got a ton of photos that we love, first I’m going to share my favorite photos in color today. I’ll share the black and white ones next week. Oh and we of course had to include our pugs, Bowie and Rosie! 


Bowie’s super cute bowtie is from Pawsh Accessories and Rosie’s cute tutu is from Ellie Grace Crafts, both great Etsy shops (who I am independently promoting and should note that they aren’t paying me).

My makeup was done by my awesome friend Adrienne Pace, who is a Pittsburgh-based makeup artist. She does weddings, but she is also a regular makeup artist for ModCloth (which is also based in Pittsburgh). I’m so lucky to know such talented ladies! If any of you in this area need a photographer or makeup artist, be sure to check out Mandy and Adrienne. Mandy also has an awesome fashion blog, The Curvy Blogger.

Also check back next week for some black and white photos (if I haven’t already overloaded you with photos!)

Hope everyone has a safe and awesome Labor Day weekend! We will be putting the handrail on our front steps on Monday woohoo!
