Chris and I got our engagement pictures done at Wagner College on Staten Island which was where we went to college and obviously, where we met. I was nervous about getting our pictures done because Chris and I had never posed for professional pictures before. I was also nervous about the heat and humidity; it was the hottest day of the week, and probably one of the hottest days of August! Luckily, it wasn't too bad while we were there from about 10 to 12, and most of our pictures were in the shade.
It was great to be back on Wagner's Campus, which served as the perfect backdrop for us. Wagner is gorgeous and it's no surprise that a lot of movies and commercials are filmed there. School of Rock was filmed there, many Law and Order episodes, this Brooks Brothers ad was filmed entirely at Wagner, as well as a ton of other stuff. I would recommend Wagner for anyone in that area who needs to get great pictures taken, whether they went there or not. Our photographer, Jose, was laid back but professional. It was awesome to get to know him and how he works, since he'll be our photographer on our wedding day. He made us feel very comfortable. At times, he asked us to just walk around and act natural, so Chris and I reminisced about certain things we remembered while at Wagner. Like, that night during Senior Week that we found Matt sulking near the gym because he was sad we were graduating! (Haha, he's going to killll me). We took pictures on the oval, near Main Hall, at the entrance for our senior year dorm, in the parking lot, in the Union Building, on the union steps, and near Trautman Square.
So without further ado, I give you our engagement picture highlights!
