Too Early For An Arranged Marriage?

I love weddings! I have always loved looking at engagement photos and wedding photos (and new baby photos…etc).

I really like attending weddings.

I love celebrating someone else’s “Happily Ever After”

It is also a good reason to dress up, but that’s just the selfish talk’n.

My friend’s daughter, Abby, is six years old. Which may seem a bit old for our 19 month old son.

But, my husband likes to remind everyone that I’m five years older than him.

Abby found the little yellow flower and was insistent that it was the focus of several shots.

Every time we see Abby, Danny likes to tease her, “hey Abby, do you know what an arranged marriage is?”

Abby couldn't get Wiley to do what she wanted. She wanted to take a picture with him...and he wasn't feeling the photography bug yet.

It’s more of a joke, but looking through these photos I took a few weeks ago, made me think of engagement photos.

(These particular photos shown above make me think of my brother Keegan, who frequently walks with one hand behind his back…tee hee.)

Usually, the guy isn’t as enthusiastic about taking photos and is ready to be done after three or four shots.

whereas, the girl wants to take as many photos as long as the photographer can hold up their arms.

She told me she wanted one with "this" in the background.

and…eventually, Abby got what she wanted.
