Engagement Pictures!

We got our engagement picture proofs in the mail today! Although I will not bore you with all 209 pictures, I am going to share some of my favorites. Before the pictures, I wanted to pass along a little advice for anyone who plans on doing any kind of beach pictures in the future. So here goes...
  1. Do not wear as much lotion on your legs or arms as usual. The sand will get all over you (obviously) and the lotion makes it a lot harder to remove.
  2. Bring a towel, for situations such as those described in #1.
  3. Don't wear anything that will blow too much in the wind. Our picture day was SO windy and this little flap thing on the front of my dress was all over the place, as was our hair. The wind would also blow under my dress at times, causing me to look 6-8 months pregnant in several shots.
  4. Bring a brush. I think brushing my hair each time we changed spots was the only thing that kept my hair looking (somewhat) normal.
I hope these tips help someone in the future.. I definitely wish someone would have told me a couple of them beforehand! I am also REALLY glad we decided to go with color and not khaki/white outfits. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Nice pictures. I was to take my engagement pictures this past weekend, but photographer is pregnant and due any day now, so we rescheduled. Hopefully we will have some great fall shots. I see that you took your pictures in Hilton Head. Can you tell me any about Hilton Head? We had thought about that location for a honeymoon site.
