I posted a couple of these pictures on Instagram and I received a few texts from friends congratulating us on the engagement. Full disclaimer, we’re NOT engaged! But, when your super talented photographer friend asks you and your boyfriend to model for pictures, you definitely don’t say no. Especially when the majority of the pictures you have over the course of your relationship involve the same side hug pose (and maybe a solo cup here and there because #college).
The second photo was taken right after the first. We were both laughing uncontrollably because it was 95-degrees, I was sweating profusely, and he had to kiss my forehead for a full 12 seconds. Not cute. But, these pictures are so authentically us. We rarely take ourselves seriously, and I think that’s so important.
And speaking of not taking ourselves seriously, we didn’t exactly coordinate our outfits for this shoot. Instead, we decided to go with the flow and reach for what we would normally wear on any given day.
I bought this floral maxi dress at Abercrombie & Fitch last summer on sale, and I absolutely love it. It’s flowy and feminine, and I’ve worn it too many times to count. A floral maxi dress is incredibly versatile, and works just as well for spring and summer as it does for fall. Simply throw on a denim or leather jacket, trade your sandals for ankle boots, and you’re good to go.

Now, onto this guy. Fritz is definitely a button down fan. And I love this one on him, mainly because I’ll never say no to gingham. He also accessorizes better than I do…I mean, look at the arm party he’s got going on. Impressive, right? I also love how he added brown dress shoes to round out the look. That is a major key.

Thank you so much to Sydney Marie Photography for these photos. We love them!
