engagements - detail shots

June 14, 2012








When it came to our engagement pictures, we mostly just wanted to create something similar to our first date. Although we clearly did not have cupcakes with milk and mason jars, (think: subway sandwiches and bulk candy instead) -- our picnic in a lot of ways made me feel like I was 16 again (in a good way :)

What was really special, though, was the fact that most everything we used in these pictures belonged to Max's dad, who passed away while Max was on his mission two years ago. One of my first memories I have at the Bingham home is of Max's dad showing me his smurf collection, and giving me old antique costume jewelry which I still have saved in my memory box :) Going through boxes and boxes of these things a few weeks ago seriously felt like treasure hunting! So it was a lot of fun for us to have so many memories of his dad that day, and in all of our pictures, too.


And last but not least, thanks a million to Robin and Sara. None of this could have been done without them! I may even name my first born after them both: sarobin. And if its a boy? robara.
