C + C Engagement Photoshoot {Behind the Scenes}

I totally forgot to post behind the scenes photos from Caleb and Claudia’s engagement shoot. Sorry! 😛 I have been extremely busy lately, and blogging is on the to-do list, just not at the top.

While waiting for Caleb and Claudia to change their outfits, Joel, Abby, Phoebe and I took a peek inside this lovely little shop, Fair & Square.  Well, it was a little more than a peek.– We ended up buying a few handmade items there– 3 headbands, and a few bracelets. 🙂 They have quite a few up-cycled/re-fashioned things (e.g. leafy earrings made from an old plastic bottle; a coin purse made with coke can tabs; etc.), and as you know, I am huge on that type of creativity! 🙂 I was rather in my prime in that shop, hehe. 🙂

Riding in the back of Caleb’s truck. Don’t worry. This was out in the country, and at a huge park/trail so we were safe. 🙂

While we were at the park, I snapped some photos of Madeline. 🙂

Image

Maddie is: sweet, sarcastic, skilled, a sister, sometimes silly. I’ve been privileged to know her for going on 4 years, I believe. She plays violin in her school orchestra; sings in a choir; and recently started modeling for a Christian organization. In her spare time, she shops, sips Starbucks drinks, and she acts as Caleb and Claudia’s third-wheel. 🙂 Oh, and guess what?! Maddie’s birthday is tomorrow! Please wish her a happy day down in the comments. 🙂

Isn’t she gorgeous?! 😀

Caleb + Claudia {Engagement Photoshoot}

A couple of weeks ago, my sister Phoebe and I got to shoot our first ever engagement photo session for our brother (Caleb) and his fiancee (Claudia). It was an exciting experience, and I had been planning it for weeks. 🙂 Our shooting locations were a local historic downtown, as well as a large park nearby. Now, without further adieu, here are the photos– I’m posting them in two sections (the first will be ones I took, and the second– ones Phoebe took).

C+C’s Engagement Party

Nearly a week ago, our sweet friends (the G. family) hosted a party to celebrate Caleb and Claudia’s engagement. 🙂

Image
Mrs. G. showed us their urban farmyard.–They have chickens. 🙂 Isn’t their coop adorable?!
Image
The stately rooster.

Claudia and Jaden

The cute couple 🙂 And yes, I did “photo bomb” them–kind of. Except, not really because I was already standing there and they just *happened* to be taking a photo.

Dad converses with Claudia’s friend, Beatriz. 🙂

Romanian cuisine (Claudia is Romanian, as are the G.’s)– heavenly. 🙂
