Today we’re bringing you an engagement photo shoot photographed by Family Creative Photography. I just love the styling of this shoot, both edgy and sweet. Enjoy!
Most of the time, if you’re going to have a photo shoot done, it’s because some big event in your life has happened…. Like, there is a new rock on her finger, and the wedding date is scheduled.
But sometimes a couple has been together for awhile, and committed to each, but there just isn’t a actual ‘rock’ in the picture yet – pun intended!
Adamm & Nicole are one of those creative couples that are involved in everything! Adamm’s a musician, playing guitar and singing in a ’604 Records’ band called Fighting for Ithaca. As well as working with graphic design. Nicole is former project manager at ’604 Record’ and is now a creative/artistic director working in the film and tv industry, as well as a writer, blogger, social media expert, multi-medium artist, and is heavily involved in the local arts and music community in Vancouver.
As a couple, they’re a little bit punk rock, a little edgy, but still in love none-the-less. So without further ado…
Today we’re bringing you this gorgeous engagement shoot, shot by Kim+Phil Photography in San Francisco! I just had an opportunity to go out to coffee with Kim and Phil and they are truly wonderful and friendly people. Not to mention their beautiful photography, as you can see!
Talented photographer Carly of Carly Hack Photography sent this gorgeous set over — Baylee and Martin’s beach engagement photos, shot at Henley Beach Jetty in South Australia. They’re actually getting married tomorrow — our best wishes for a wonderful day go out to them!
See the rest of the gorgeous photos after the cut…
Jenna & Tim didn’t want the straight forward engagement shoot, so instead decided to get hold of some over-sized animal heads. As you might know, I prefer things to be a little off-kilter so jumped at the chance to photograph it for them.
We took in some of the often used sights around Melbourne for engagement and wedding photography, but with the heads, they seem to take on a different, almost surreal feel!
Their cute little Pug came along for some of the shots too. What a smart little fella he looked in that jacket!
It’s been nearly 4 months since Luis and I got engaged.
The time has really flown by, and since Luis was teaching this summer and preparing to finish his dissertation and I have been so heads down building awesome features for WeddingLovely, I have to admit (somewhat embarrassingly) that we haven’t done much wedding planning.
We have decided two things: it will be next summer, 2013, and it will be in California. Details: TBD.
However, our lack of planning is slowly contributing to more family inquisitiveness. My parents have started sending me wedding invitations that they have received, and they have written out what they like and/or don’t like about them. My sister text-messaged me last week to ask if I was changing my name (I’m not).
The engagement shoot briefly satisfied my parents that we were making progress, and Luis was happy that his parents could finally have a better photo to put up in their home on the wall with the rest of the family (the previous photo they hung up after we announced we were engaged we were both wearing Pajamas and Luis had horrible bed head and looked like Egon from Ghostbusters.)
But, alas, another month went by with no progress and I recently got a rude awakening that we need to start seriously planning. This happened when: (1) My hairdresser reminded me that her availability for next summer is quickly filling up, and (2) a close friend who got engaged after me already has her venue booked and her save-the-date cards in the mail! Then, (3) a cousin of mine who also lives in California got engaged and my parents emailed me asking us to coordinate so that we wouldn’t get married on the same weekend.
This all made me realize that if we don’t get this process rolling, then all the venues and dates might be gone, and I’ll be coordinating with more and more people in my family as more cousins get engaged (I have many, many cousins).
So, of course, I’ve been using WeddingLovely and our first task was to determine our wedding style. I used the quick links to sort out where we fit in. We’re definitely a “casual” pair but we’ll see if we slowly creep into formal…(casual is more “budget friendly” than formal). I would also describe us as wanting a “Garden Style” wedding. Next up we will start tackling the budget. Speaking of which, have you seen the sample budget breakdown in WeddingLovely? It’s fabulous and very useful! Once we’re done with that we’ll get a venue booked…(baby steps, baby steps).
We’ve decided to spend a few hours every weekend on wedding planning, so I promise more exciting details to come!
A few weeks ago, the WeddingLovely team went on an adventure. Not just ANY adventure, but a real live engagement shoot. Not just ANY engagement, but the one of our lovely and talented Julia! Josh Gruetzmacher Photography was kind enough to let us tag along to Half Moon Bay and share in the excitement of Julia and Luis. The photos in this post were taken with our iPhones, thanks to a camera battery mishap. But, that’s okay because tomorrow we’ll be sharing Josh’s photos – which are all kinds of awesome. Thanks Josh!
Can you believe that this is practically in our backyard? This is the spot where Julia said “yes.” If you missed it, you can read her engagement story here. Half Moon Bay is such a beautiful place.
I caught myself going through these photos several times because I am so in love with this engagement shoot! I could feel the love and passion radiating from this couple when I was first looking at these images. The love that is shown through these beautiful photos cannot be done without the fantastic works of Emmy K. Stone Photography. Thanks for sharing!
“There is a world. A world unlike ours. An undefined Home. An unspeakable belonging. We find ourselves caught in it’s rapture, and it never lets us go. A world that shows us less of hurt and more of healing, of trust, of understanding. An entire world two people can create with no physical means in any form. A world inside the Heart; a universe within a bond, with galaxies as kisses and moons as eyes, and suns as an embrace. This world is the world of Love. The world between Michelle and Jeff.”
Today’s shoot comes to us from WeddingPhotoLove’s Danielle Hartland Design and Photography. I don’t know about you, but after seeing this shoot – I can hardly wait to see the wedding photos. Congrats Ellie and Sam!
Ellie and Sam will be married on July 20, 2012 in Erie, Pennsylvania. They both LOVE the outdoors: from hunting to camping – and they’re die hard country music fans. They styled themselves to fit what they love, and they did a great job! Ellie wanted to do this shoot at the blueberry farm where she and her family spent her entire childhood collecting blueberries. As we were walking around, she was reminiscing about some sweet childhood memories. Ellie is basically a sister to me, so this shoot was a complete honor and delight, and I love Sam…he’s perfect for her. Ellie and Sam’s love is pure and true, and I think these images give a small glimpse into that love.
Eliza J Photography submitted this wedding to us through Two Bright Lights and I knew I had to share it on our blog. This couple is so adorable – it had to make Eliza’s job pretty easy. I can’t wait to see their wedding, I sure hope she submits it (hint, hint!).
Jen and Chandler are the absolute ideal couple to photograph! They brought a great wardrobe and had wonderful matching personalities which was what made this shoot so compelling! We laughed out a loud a lot, ate some good food, dug our toes in the sand and even got to watch an incredible sunset on the beach. These two were up for anything and everything, and I was so glad because the outcome was exactly what we wanted…a beautiful Californian engagement. Their wedding in May will be beautiful, right in downtown Laguna Beach, CA. Keep your eyes peeled for Jen’s hand sewn couture gown. It will be stunning!
