A peak into our rustic cabin engagement photo shoot over the fall – think campfires, beers, and s’mores. Many, many s’mores.
Steve and I celebrated our one year engagementversary on Christmas and it’s crazy to think how one year has already passed since I said “yes” and it’s even crazier to think how our wedding is THIS YEAR! Eight months away to be exact. And I know those nine months are going fly by even faster.
As we just celebrated our one year engagementversary (and our 13 year dating anniversary – yes, THIRTEEN on December 23), I thought I would share our excitement with you all by showing you a sneak peak into our engagement photo shoot by the INCREDIBLY talented Nickel City Studios. They are the best and I cannot wait to see what magic they create on our wedding day.
In thinking about where we wanted to do our engagement photos, we wanted to steer clear of all the usual spots we see and do something special and unique to us. We thought my father’s cabin would be the perfect, natural backdrop as it sits among 6 acres of tall pines and a pond. Plus, my Dad designed and built the cabin from the ground up and has been his labor of love for over 15 years now. He continues to work on it to this day, always finding new projects to work on. Growing up, Steve and I spent nights together and with friends at the cabin, having campfires and cookouts. It holds a lot of special and fun memories for us.We also couldn’t hang out at the cabin without doing our favorite cabin activities. Drinking brews and making s’mores by the campfire.
It took Steve and I some time to figure out this last photo. What are those magical looking firefly-like glimpses of light? Steve thought it was embers from the fire but this picture was taken nowhere near the fire. It was taken next to the pond. Ah, the pond! This picture is our reflection in the pond and that magic is the ripples in the water. How cool is that?!
Hope you enjoyed the photos! For more wedding fun and inspiration from us this year, follow along with #happilyeverevancho on social.
