Our Engagement Photos in Lisbon

lark linen engagement_6

Our relationship isn’t something I speak about publicly often, but it is something that is tremendously valued, and continuously worked on day in and day out in our household. My wonderful fiancé, Justin, and I have officially been together for eleven years now, so it was pretty exciting when we (finally) decided to take that next step. 

In all honesty, neither of us is religious, or terribly traditional, so I truly didn’t think that getting engaged (and ultimately, married) would be a big deal. Plus, we knew that it was always on the horizon for us – I mean, it was a done deal the moment we met a decade ago, as far as I’m concerned… But I’ve surprised myself time and time again over the last few months. It truly feels as if we’ve fallen in love all over again, which I wasn’t expecting in the least. 

We picked our venue, our date, and booked our photographer, shortly after getting engaged, and then decided to take the summer off to really soak in this beautiful phase of our lives before digging deep into all things wedding planning.

With a trip to Portugal on the horizon, we both agreed that it’d be a unique, and unforgettable, experience to capture our engagement photos in the picturesque streets of Lisbon. Enter: Branco Prata – arguably two of the most talented folks we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They captured our essence and our love in a way that I didn’t realize was possible, and I’m so excited to share the photos today. I know with absolute certainty that we’ll cherish every last one of them for as long as we live. 

Needless to say, Portugal now holds a particularly special place in our lives. And we can’t wait to head back to celebrate anniversaries and milestones alike down the road.
