Q: What is one kajillion x better than engagement photos?

A: Elopement photos!

When Meaghan wrote in with this wee update.....

Hey ESB,

I just wanted to give a big thank you to you and your readers for all the suggestions on my question about how to tell people once we'd eloped (especially whoever thought I was serious about the "news item" thing... amazing!).

We went the postcard route, and had a blast picking out cards, especially some of the weird ones we found in vintage stores (although we went with more traditional "I heart NY"-type ones for the famjam).

As for coworkers and local friends, we just told when it came up in conversation. A lot of people thought we were joking (which, let's be honest, that wouldn't be a particularly funny joke) but the rings convinced them. 

Overall, it was a great day. We wandered around with a photographer (whose services we had won a while back), drank coffee, and tried not to squint too much in the pictures.

I knew we had to see em.

    I would for sure rather shoot your elopement than your engagement session any day, hands down.
