Gifts made easy

One of the (many) awesome parts of this whole engagement and marriage thing is the photos. We were so blessed to have two incredible photographers do these shoots for us. It’s been great– I finally have some pictures of myself that I love, and the best part during this season– we have instant gifts!

Last year, we had the engagement photos to use. We printed and framed them for parents and grandparents. It was so simple, and they were a hit! The last time there were professional photographs of either of us was in high school (and that was SO long ago for my husband)– so there was some updating to do 🙂

We used these photos last year for gifts– I still love all of them…webready_BrianLindsey111211_026 webready_BrianLindsey111211_054

This year, of course, we had the wedding photos. We also had the bridals and our “day after” shoot. Though we love our candid wedding photos best, we printed a lot of the posed photos for family. We also printed a large bridal for my mom. Here are a couple of them…

Our “day after” shoot made our Christmas cards simple, too. The toughest part was deciding which photos to include– they were so beautiful!

But unfortunately, we can’t keep this up. Our family will run out of room for framed photos and will probably get sick of looking at us. What in the world are we going to do for gifts next year?! I think we’re going to have to actually use our brains… oh bother…
