Matt and Liz : engaged!

I took these pictures almost two months ago... and just was able to get around to editing them... which is ridiculous, because they were the engagement pictures for my brother-in-law and his super-sweet fiancee! {I'm using my chubby baby as an excuse, here. Like my grandma says, tongue in cheek... always blame someone who can't fight back ;-) }

We had an hour or two to work with before our flight out of Boston {remember, we were there shooting this beauuutiful wedding?}, so we met downtown and played around in the commons. It was such a beautiful day {hurricane Earl was long gone by then}... we were seriously blessed with some gorgeous weather!

I'm pretty sure Matt and Liz invented a language that only the two of them speak... these two are tight. They just get each other, and they're really, really cute about it :) They met at the University of Illinois; Matt's an engineer, and Liz is getting her master's in psychology {read = good looking and really smart}. The first time I met Liz, she was wearing the cutest pair of black flats that I'd ever seen {and of course, I liked her instantaneously *wink*}.

Matt is really savvy, a huge thinker, and a total gentleman. And Liz is classy, smart, and has one of the best smiles I've ever seen {not exaggerating}. If you watch the slideshow at the bottom of this post, you'll notice a Cubs/Cards rivalry {haha! competition is good for marriage, for sure!}, jumping shots {they were really good sports, especially when I got all scatter-brained on them and started telling lame jokes}, and football jerseys {I won't even start about how die-hard these two are when it comes to U of I}.

Alright. It's late, and I'm starting to ramble. {Marty's sitting next to me, playing Angry Birds on my iPhone, and the squawking is getting to my brain.}

Bottom line? I really love my brother, and his wife-to-be!! They're a lovely match, and Liz has killer shoes. The end :)
