Silly me for not doing this post sooner! Aaron and I took engagement pictures about a month ago! It was a blast...from putting the outfits together to taking the actual pictures I loved every second of it. We chose our locations based on our relationship and wedding theme. The first location is our actual ceremony and reception venue, the historic Carpenter Theater in Richmond,Va. The second location was Shockoe Bottom in Richmond,Va. The Carpenter Theater was so kind to put our names on the marquee the day of our shoot. It was absolutely breath taking to see our names in lights in our home city. People were stopping, cheering and blowing the horn in aw of our photo shoot. Our outfits were perfect! I wore a coral convertible dress by designer MonifC with my navy and cream Jessica Simpson sandals all brought together by silver and white gold jewelery. Aaron wore khaki cargo shorts paired with a butter yellow Ralph Lauren Polo shirt. Later in the pictures we wore matching Chuck Taylor's and Ralph Lauren Polo hats paired with my jean vest. The more casual look we used for the pictured in Shockoe Bottom so that we could walk the streets freely and comfortably.
In many of the pictures I used props. The props I made myself! That was a lot of fun as well. The props are great additives especially since some of the pictures will be used for the save the dates. The props were also chosen based on the theme of our wedding and our relationship. The two quoted hearts, "&" symbol, movie clapper, and A's all brought our pictures to life!
That day we took over 300 shots in about 3 hours. The pictures were taken by my brother Lorenzo Carey of He did an awesome job of bringing our never ending story to life. My make up brows and lashes were done by makeup artist Brandy. Please follow her on instagram: @brandypagemua. There are many more pictures but too many to post on my blog. If you want to see anymore please email us at I will gladly send the rest of the pictures. Bye!
