Notes From the Future "Mrs." - Engagement Photo Teaser

Recently, I have been on a little blogging "vacation". Saying that these past few months were busy would be an understatement of the century. But now that we're through all the incredible events that we've participated in this fall, I am back on track! And my wedding planning hiatus has come to a end. Finally.

Below is sneak preview of my most recent accomplishment. I can now proudly announce that I have checked "engagement photos" off of my to-do list! Chris and I spent last Saturday exploring downtown Grand Rapids with the extremely talented Jen Kroll of Jen Kroll Photography. Anyone who follows In Any Event's blog is no stranger to the fact that Jen photographs most of the events for In Any Event. Jodi actually has a long-standing joke that "Jesus lives in her lens". It's true. Her work is unbelievable, and I am thrilled we are able to have her as our photographer.

For the shoot, we went to various spots including Rosa Parks Circle, St. Cecilia Music Center, and Jen's own studio space. Our day, although a little chilly, turned out great. And I think Chris actually enjoyed himself, which is a big "wow" because you couldn't hand-pick two people that are more uncomfortable in front of the camera than us. But Jen managed to handle it all with grace.

Many thanks to you, Jen, for spending your Saturday with us and making the whole process a fun (and painless) experience!

Hope you all enjoy these!

~ Jillian
