#tbt: The Engagement Photos

Since I was not a big blogger at the time we got engaged, I have decided to do a few posts about everything leading up to the wedding.  It has officially been a full year ago since we took these so here is the story on our Engagement Photos.  

We knew from the day we got engaged that Susan Lines would take our photos.  She is a beautiful and talented friend of ours that so graciously said yes to taking our pictures.  Susan has known D.J. since he was a little freshman at JMU so it was surreal for her to be taking his engagement photos! We decided that the best time to get together would be over Thanksgiving break.  Just like we knew Susan would take our pictures, we knew she would be taking them at one of our most memorable locations- James Madison University in the heart of the Shenandoah Mountains. 

Pictures on the quad was a must.  Although neither of us were ever on the quad for class, it is still an important part of JMU!

This is seriously one of my favorites.  I can't help but notice how blue my eyes are!

Must have a picture kissing on the "Kissing Rock"
If you don't know, I was the first girl D.J. met at JMU. I was an Orientation Guide at the time and with a little bit of luck from JMU, it was fate that I got Ikenberry that August of 2009.  From day one I thought for sure that D.J. and Billy (the other baseball player I had) would be the hardest to get to participate. Ironically, it was the opposite- they were doing everything..although I think this was because D.J. had a little crush ;).  So it was a no-brainer that we had to take a few pictures back at our old stomping ground!

The railroad tracks don't have too much significance to us, but I always wanted to take pictures on there... so we did! I am pretty sure Susan was thinking this chick is crazy for wanting to take so many different pictures, but in the end I couldn't have been happier with the way they turned out.  

Last but not least was the baseball field.  We had seen a friend of D.J.'s take pictures on the field a few years before we got engaged and there was no option but to follow suit!

We were so lucky to get Susan to shoot our engagement photos.  After our shoot, Susan became pretty popular for her photo shoot for Megan and John!
