Guys! I’m back!!! Did you miss me?! I heard that Indie Bridal Party was amazing (I’m still so sad I missed it) and everyone seemed to like our DIY Workshop Sponsor Love posts while I was gone. Now it’s full steam ahead this week, back to blogging, gearing up for our first DIY workshop on May 4th (tickets still available here!!!), AND working weddings the first 4 weeks of May! Woo hoo!! Let’s get this week going with a casual, laid-back engagement session from Pier23. I love this engagement shoot because the couple decided to keep things super relaxed, and shoot it at their apartment, in their every day clothes. Love.

Be sure to check the blog again this afternoon for an AMAZING jewelry giveaway! It’s good to be back.

How they met:

Aside from friends and family, Jonathan and Kara are most thankful for Al Gore, because without his creation of the Internet, they would have never found each other. In a city of 646,449 people, there is no way that two witty, astrologically-incompatible, cat-loving, TV binge-watching lovebirds who are absolutely perfect for each other would have sat down at two adjacent bar stools at The Black Squirrel and started a romance they never knew was possible. That’s where we’ll be having a welcome happy hour the evening before the wedding.

For more on the couple, check out their awesome wedding website.

The proposal story:

This could basically be called “The Kitty Photobomb Proposal.

Within the first few minutes of thinking about how I wanted to propose to Kara, I knew what I wanted to do. Even more than loving making lists, Kara is absolutely thrilled to cross things off of them. It would be practically impossible for her to turn me down if she had “get engaged” as an entry on one of her lists. A to-do list also seemed like a great fit within the framework of our already having discussed and planned our future together, and it would be a simple and sweet moment that did justice to the down-to-earth, loving relationship that has grown between us.
