After my “HELP!!” blog a few days ago, i got some links & ideas from various people for The Engagement Shoot … I had a look at the sites recommended, and found a bunch of really nice stuff :D

There was a suggestion that we take the beagles to the shoot – but I’m not totally sold on that idea… dont get me wrong, you all know how much a ADORE my boys – but they are quite a handful… and we are going to a place we haven’t explored before, so I’m a bit nervous to take them along… BUT i was thinking, maybe later in the year we can do a “family” shoot – the 4 of us at a nice park or something… I’d like that a lot!! :)

Anyway… back to the task at hand …

I saved a couple of pics that I really like – for some reference etc… hmmm, is this like the start of wedding planning?? eeek!! i don’t need to be thinking of that kinda stuff! Sheesh!

Oh well… here are some snippets of photos i liked :) … there’s not really a particular “feel” that i like more than another – i seem to like everything – the fun shots, tender/romantic and the more abstract stuff…

Off Christine Meintjies site, I really loved this shoot – particularly the pics of the couple lying in the grass: (more on the site)

********

Off Rock ‘n Roll Bride I liked this fun pic


********

I found a lot of sweet, romantic tender pics…

I really like this one off Rock ‘n Roll Bride (I think its my favourite pic i found)


********

also off Rock ‘n Roll Bride – i like how it looks so natural, not posed at all… like the photographer snuck up on them :)



********


Then, I like these more abstract type ones too:

Rock ‘n roll bride (Thanks Angel, I think I’m becoming addicted!)


********


I think this is super cute


********


Then, we must get a couple of shots of the #Sparkly!! Most of the shots i could find are REALLY cheesy… like her hand resting lovingly on his… I mean, I know that the whole idea probably is quite lame… but i managed to find a few that weren’t that awful ;)


This one is a little cheesy, but not too bad, hey?


********

This one I like – it’s different and something new


********

and then this one is a lovely shot – maybe it would look cheesy if the ring wasnt so pretty ;) but u can almost see the movement here – it doesn’t look staged – which is cool.


********

And then, Jeanette sent me some links of shoots that couples did with their dogs :)

- like i said, maybe we’ll do that later in the year – I would really like to!!

Take a look at the doggy-friendly engagement shoots here, here and here… it looks like it could be a lot of fun… but The Beagles are quite naughty little buggers sometimes…! But ever so photogenic! :)


So – I’m really looking forward to the shoot… which is just over a week away. Thanks to everyone who commented and sent me some inspiration :D much appreciated!!
