You see hive- I am one of those people who LOVE the holidays. October 1st rolls around and I’m signing “It’s the Holiday Season!” lol
SO the other day I asked FI what he wanted for Christmas. What does he want? NFL customized Cowboys jersey. (consider it done my love) Then he asked me what I wanted. What do I want? Engagement photos!!! And yes- getting FI to agree to sit in front of a camera for a couple hours and show affection on camera (gasp, right?) is DEF the best.gift.ever!!!! Cannot wait for December!!!
Already ladies- give it to me straight-
Did you have to convince FI to take some pro pics with you? Was it a struggle?
Was anyone else gifted a photo shoot? What did ya’ll wear? Any suggestions or adivce for an e-pic lover??
HEY- As an added bonus- here’s a chance for you to show off your e-pic!!

it was like pulling teeth to get FI to have his photo taken. My aunt did the shoot, so it wasn’t even like it was just a stranger! We kept it casual to keep him comfortable as possible!

I won’t post my engagement pics again because I think I’ve plastered them all over. 🙂
We did something similar, though. My fiance was fine with taking them, but we had a hard time justifying the cost. We don’t really give anniversary presents, but we do go out for dinner sometimes. Instead of that for our 6 year we took engagement photos. It was really fun!

For my 21st Birthday my FI (then BF) thought if would be nice for us to get some pictures taken. He made an appointment at a Sears portrait studio or something, and we got to get some nice pictures taken. I thought it was one of the best gifts he has ever given me!
We wore simple outfits, I was wearing a 3/4 sleeve dark purple scoopneck shirt with khakis and he wore jeans and a black button down shirt.
Haven’t taken our e-pics yet, so I don’t have a clue what we will wear there!

@pumpkinspiceChai – NFL.com actually has some really awesome jerseys! You can even get his last name put on the back. Pricey- but for the quality I’m sure it’s well worth it! 🙂 I’m on the hunt for an Emmit Smith jersey (22) so if you stumble upon that keep me posted!! PS- I LOVE Pumpkin Spice Chais! mmmm mmmm
@mpcmar- That is a GREAT gift!!
@lilyfaith- Great way to celebrate an anniversary!
@7Seven- pulling teeth is a great way to describe it!! LOVE the pic you posted! Very fun! 🙂
