Since our wedding is in Mexico (and a mere six months away), I had to send out save the dates rather early so guests would start to book their travel. Because I sent them so early, they didn't have the usual couple picture plastered on them because Eric and I didn't get engagement pictures right away. Once the save the dates were sent, I wondered if we needed engagement pictures at all. I opted not to do them and instead came up with an idea to do my own. All you need is a camera (check), a willing family member (thanks, Emily), and an interesting backdrop (abandoned barn near my parents' house).
We had blocked off a good amount of time to do this project but ultimately ended up spending about a half-hour to take a montage of photos. It was especially freezing outside and Eric and I couldn't take the cold in our 'indoor' outfits. Sometimes when you DIY, you have to improvise and go with the flow.. Which reminds me--these aren't the outfits we had originally planned, hence the lack of coordination (it looks like Mr. Fall met Miss Winter for casual outing).
