Four months from yesterday, I am getting married.
My fiance (Rachel) and I got engaged last February after dating for four and a half years. We decided we would tie the knot in May 2009, giving us a (relatively long) 15 month engagement.
Last fall, our good friend Jason MacLean agreed to take our engagement pictures. Jason is a photographer based in Charlottetown, PEI, and has been doing some wedding photography (as well as family, engagement, and general portraits) for several years.
I think the pictures came out pretty darn good. We wanted to leave them until the fall so that we could take advantage of the changing leaves, and while it was getting late in the season (meaning a lot of trees were already leafless) we managed to find one nice little spot in the woods that offered the colours we were looking for.
The whole process was quite different for me. I’m so used to being on the other side of the camera, and it made me realize why people sometimes feel awkward when I am directing them around (not that Jason was doing a bad job… I’m just not used to it).
