This past Sunday, Thea, Hollie, Mike, Erick, and I headed up Hwy 6 to visit the Aberfoyle Antique Market. It was the opening day for the season, and I had desperately missed it while it was closed over the winter. We went up with the intention of doing a little engagement photo shoot with Hollie in addition to checking out the wares. We decided that if there was an absolute downpour (which was forecast) we could always take pictures later. Well, it did rain. A lot (though you can't really tell from the photos). But we decided to give it a go regardless.

Hollie is amazing! Even in the pouring rain, with a foggy lens and no umbrella, she managed to produce a selection of really great photos! She was absolutely drenched, and it was cold, so we're very grateful. And we're super happy with the results. Especially since we were mildly apprehensive about engagement photos initially. We're not big PDA people, and the thought of expressing affection in front of a camera (without being slightly inebriated) was sort of scary. But I'm glad we did it. It was a practice round for the big day, which I'm really looking forward to. Only 86 more days! Holy poop. I hope it doesn't rain.

p.s. I don't know what we're doing in that last photo.
