Matt and Lillian's Engagement Photos!

... and a few other pictures too.

First, let me say how much I adore Emily. She is such a talented photographer... and a generous friend! The pictures she took last weekend are my new favorite thing to look at.

Me, Em, Lil
Thank you for taking all those pictures of us, Emily! You are the best. And I'm so glad we got a picture of us three girls together.

Let's start with Matt and Lillian's photos. We walked around West Chester with them for a while...

The classic library shot...

Don't you love Matt's hat in this next one?

At the Book Barn:

As you can see, they have an old-fashioned, nerdy scholarly vibe like Frank and I do. What can I say? Twins!

They took a few gag photos, like this funny one of them reading a giant Bible.

Lillian captioned this next one, "Dear Lord, just help us survive wedding planning."

Emily also sweetly took photos of both couples together. Maybe one of these framed would be a nice Christmas present for my mom:

Of course we had to do a gag photo. Our classic is, "Be pensive!" and then we try to look like members of the Bullingdon Club.

Very pensive, wouldn't you say? Or maybe Matt's the only pensive one -- the rest of us look a bit more like The Sopranos.

And last but not least, my very favorite photo of all:

The end!


  1. Such beautiful pictures! And congrats to your sister and her fiancé (:

    1. Thank you, Deanna! I'll pass on the message - I'm sure Lillian will be happy to hear it. :)

  2. aw! y'all are all so cute!

    also, I want to go live in the book barn. it looks aaaaaaamazing!

    1. Isn't it a dream come true? I'm secretly scheming to start my own book barn with Frank in our retirement... totally realistic and practical, of course!

  3. I loved every one of your pictures!! What a blessing to have a wonderful photographer as a friend! I think many of wish we ourselves did! Especially for pics with our sweet hearts. ♥

    I'm so happy for all of you! Enjoy this wonderful time preparing for your marriages.
    I absolutely love hearing and getting to see your journey!


    1. Thank you, Becca! I love sharing about the wedding on here, and hopefully before too long I can put a few more details of the planning process!

      We definitely feel so lucky to have such great friends as photographers, from Emily to Frank's sister. It inspires me to work a little harder at photography myself!

  4. Cute, cute, cute. That is all.

    1. Thanks darling. Please come visit DC for the March for Life! Miss you!

  5. I like them all...but the last one the best.

    1. Thank you! It's my favorite too - I even made it my profile pic on Facebook. Thanks for stopping by the blog!
