engagement pictures, T-minus 4 days!

Our engagement pictures are in 4 days... First of all, I really hope the weather is nice.
As of Monday it was forecasted to be high 84/low 61 and mostly sunny with 10% chance of precipitation. As of this morning the forecast was a high of 81/low 60 and mostly sunny with a 10% chance of precipitation...
NOW, however, the forecast is a high of 78/low of 60 and a 40% chance of thunderstorms. No buenos.
Eh, I'd rather it rain this Saturday than on October 15.

I am completely unprepared to embark on this said photo shoot. Firstly, I HATE having my picture taken. Despise it. Secondly, I haven't sent my ever-so-patient photographer a single inspiration picture. Oh my.

I have, however, chosen 2 of the 3 outfits I am going to wear. I can't decide if there will be a third, yet. I am SO stinking excited, as tracking down one of the J.Crew dresses was a feat, and i love. it. And I got my hair done last Friday. I was in dire need. And the mom and I are getting manicures and pedicures on Thursday night. I should probably throw in an eyebrow wax on Thursday, now that I am thinking about it... Also, CSB and I are going to stake out our location tomorrow at lunch.

I'm guilty of some serious engagement picture stalking this evening. Here are a few I will be sending along to my photographer for inspiration! Did I mention we plan to have Paisley in a few pictures?














Any suggestions?

those are so cute and the first pic actually looks a little like CSB. Did you notice that?

Oh my goodness, I was clicking around on blogs this morning and stumbled across yours and decided to read a bunch and suddenly I see me! That's me and my husband in the first two pictures! We took those at Carnton Plantation. Your wedding planning sounds like it's going well, enjoy it, getting married was the most fun time!

So funny, Katie! I feel like it would be weird to find my pictures on someone else's blog so I hope you weren't completely creeped out, haha! Our photographer brought your book to show me when we first met and I loved all of the pictures. And they were so similar to CSB and I's style (and your fiance could pass for CSB's brother!). Glad you found the blog!

Not wierd, I took it as a compliment! And yes, I noticed our men look similar as well and thought it was funny, ha! I'm hoping to pick up blogging again soon, just waiting on some good news...~!
