Today’s featured styled engagement is a good ‘ol southern themed shoot. For those that don’t know, I am kind of obsessed with Barnsley Gardens. The light here is unreal and if I had to describe Barnsley with just one word it would be “magical.” For details on how you can WIN your own FREE styled engagement shoot, scroll down!

As you may know, I am a lover of fashion. And while my shooting style is fun and romantic, I love to add a little editorial flare to my photos as well. That’s where this idea began, as a way to merge my love of fashion and all things editorial with photography. To make every couple look like they are in the pages of a magazine. Enter, styled engagement shoots.

 

What is a styled engagement shoot? Simply you and your fiancé: your loves, hobbies, passions and fashion, curated by industry experts. We meet and you talk. Then we put together an idea. A vision. It can be as simple as a location with a few props and  putting looks together from your closet, to a full out team including hair, make-up, wardrobe and set stylists. A styled engagement shoot is more than just an engagement session, it’s an experience.

 

This week will be filled with photos from multiple styled engagement shoots to give you a better idea of what makes them unique. For now, here’s a sneak peek and a little behind the scenes video (watch until the end for the REAL behind the scenes) of what’s to come. And to make this launch even better, we are giving a styled engagement shoot to one lucky engaged couple! Scroll down for the details and how to enter!

Well hello there. Yes it has in fact been over a month since a new blog post has hit the blog. At the end of wedding season, I was so wrapped up in finishing all of my wedding edits, shoots etc, that the first thing to fall wayside was blogging. That being said, there are some exciting things in store for 2014 starting with a new and exciting project NEXT week! You won’t want to miss it!

As 2013 comes to a close, I take time to reflect on the past year: what went right, what I can do better, and how amazing my clients are. Each year gets better and better and I am so incredibly blessed to get to photograph some of the most amazing people. To all of my couples this year, Thank you you for being so unbelievably amazing. Thank you for trusting me. It has been a great adventure and I cannot wait for 2014!

As the last post of 2013, , I thought I would finish with one of my favorite kind of posts, behind the scenes photos from this past year.

We’ll start off with the things I put my second shooters through, posing so  can test light. And I present, Evie to start things off:

This wedding is incredibly close to my heart. Since Drew and Meghan’s engagement session, there has not been a week or even a few days that have gone by that Meghan and I have not chatted via text. Meghan is one of the sweetest people I have ever met. She is incredibly sentimental and  grateful for every single thing in her life. It is really inspiring to see the way she cherishes everything around her. I think she reached out to me after every single wedding I posted this year, with nothing but words of encouragement. If I ever felt down, it was as if she knew it and messaged me the exact words I needed to hear. This girl, is truly special and I am so incredibly honored to have been a part of the most special day of her life yet. Even more so, to call her a friend.

And Drew, well he is her match. They are absolutely adorable together and are so incredibly in love. It is truly something special to watch them together. They are one of those couples you know will become even more in love as they grow old.

And I cannot say enough about Drew and Meghan’s wonderful family. Every single person was so kind and warm. I felt as if I had known everyone for years. The love this family felt for Meghan and Drew was unmistakable. And this wedding, well it’s one for the history books. Here are just a few of the narrowed down images from this special day.
