My only daughter Claire, 28, is getting married on September 15. We love Matt, her fiance', who is five years older.
Matt surprised Claire on New Year's Eve with a proposal at the Seattle Space Center at midnight. They have lived together for four years. Bought a house together.
To my surprise, Claire and Matt had engagement photos taken in Discovery Park, Seattle.
This generation grew up with every life event photographed by their parents. Most are children of divorce. They are getting married later.
Has this made them more sentimental? Are engagement photos a millennial trend?
The photos are lovely. A great idea!
Excellent photos. =] My niece is getting married in October. She is obsessing over every detail of the wedding and personally handmade all of the invitations. There is a photo chronicle of her engagement too. She lives near Monterey, CA. Thanks for sharing this.
I've seen a number of young people do the engagement photos - I think any time you can memorialize a happy time in your life with pictures, you should do it. One day they may be old and not remember what they had for breakfast - but I'll bet those photos will trigger memories...
