Happy Veterans Day, marblelous babes! ❤️💙
I’m SO excited about today’s special post! I’ve been planning this post for weeks, and my photographer sent me sneak peek shots on Monday, so I’ve been DYING to share these pictures with you guys for days now! But I somehow found it in me to practice self-control & waited until the time was right! 🙈
If you know my boyfriend, Vic, you know he is a bit camera shy! Usually, taking a quick picture with him would require a little bit of convincing. haha So when I thought it would be super cute to wear our military jackets together and get a professional photographer to take pictures of us, I knew it would take A LOT of convincing in order for him to agree.
So what did I do? I bribed him with a new pair of shoes. HAHA Yes, you heard that right.
As I mentioned before in one of my previous posts, he LOVES shoes. He was eyeing an olive green pair of shoes at the mall a few weeks ago, and I managed to hunt down the exact same pair online and surprised him with it in the mail. All it took was a pair of shoes and a little cheesy “Olive you” note and I got him to pinky promise to take some pictures with me! YAY!
When Vic and I first saw his military bomber jacket at the mall, we were immediately in love! We love all the different patches on the jacket and the fact that it is hooded! We also love how well his shoes pair with this jacket. They’re both on sale AND extra 20% off on top of that if you use the code “VETDAY” this weekend! 🙌🏻
If you look close enough, my military jacket has a cute patch on it, too! I love how the patch adds just the right pop of color and doesn’t look too busy and overwhelming with too many patches, which makes pairing it with dresses or a crop top and shorts a breeze!
Aren’t these pictures just SO stunning? We are so in love with them! Special thanks to Jessica from Johearn Photography for these amazing pictures! 😍
This is by far my favorite picture!!! 😍 How apt that when these pictures were taken, Vic and I have been together for exactly 1 year and 9 months, and he still sweeps me off my feet! 🙈
If you’re in the Long Beach, Orange County, or Los Angeles area, you definitely need to hit her up for some pictures. Now that the holidays are just around the corner, this is the PERFECT time for some cute holiday shoots! She seriously is the sweetest! 💕
Although Vic and I were a little nervous as we have never had a professional photographer take our pictures before, Jessica made our experience SO effortless and memorable! She was super engaging during the whole process, which definitely eased our awkward nerves and we eventually got the hang of things! Jessica is definitely a natural and has an impeccable eye for capturing the best and most precious moments, especially the ones where we were in a fit of giggles! haha 🙈
