Engagement Photos

Last month we braved the cold and headed out to get our engagement photos done. Some may wonder why, when you’ve almost been engaged for a year, you decide to get engagement photos taken. The first reason is that we don’t have any professional photos of the two of us and the second is that we are procrastinators and had been planning on getting photos taken since February.

February. November. Meh.

We got really lucky because there were still some beautiful fall colors at the University of Nevada (my alma mater), but it was freezing. My friend David, who is an amazing professional photojournalist and not a wedding photographer at all (I make that distinction purely for David’s sake. He totally could be a wedding photographer, but from what I understand wedding photographers are kind of low on the totem pole of photographers), took our photos and will be making the trip to St. Croix to capture our Caribbean nuptials. The engagement photos were a good test run.

Travis insists that he doesn’t know how to smile so his sister, Sylvia, came up with a great trick. Every time he would start looking too serious, Syliva would say, “Travis you look like you are constipated.”

I’d like you to think about that when you look at our pictures.

Come on, who doesn’t giggle at the word constipated? Except maybe people who are, in fact, constipated or those who are too sophisticated. You won’t find either of those here.

Anyhoo, click here to check out our photos. I wanted to create a slideshow, Ála Myspace 2004, but I couldn’t find any free, easy slideshow thing-a-ma-jigs.
