This gorgeous retro engagement shoot, brought to us by Kanella Brown Photography, is full of amazing details and the best part is that it’s styled in three completely different ways! Here’s Kanella to tell us more:
Giving Back is the theme of this styled engagement session. The Real engaged couple Bethany & Philip was chosen after entering into a contest for a free styled session.
See more after the cut!
With the help and collaboration of McCrite’s Cottonwood Estate, Kanella Brown Photography, Three Strand 412, Bailey Grace Boutique, Lion’s Thread , Hair & Makeup by Chelsea Lauren, bvPottery, and setup/design of Tori McCrite with Alex Swinney Weddings this giving back styled session was more than just a free engagement session.
Included in the giving back are the vendors themselves who also give back to the community and also globally. The beautiful necklaces and earrings worn by Bethany from Three Strands 412 donates 10% of their profits to various local ministries in McDonough Ga. The handmade pottery from bvPottery gives back to BeLoved Atlanta, a transition home for women coming out of the sex-trafficking industry in Atlanta Ga.
The ties worn by Philip in the pictures are from Lion’s Thread, a nonprofit that employs Ugandan women and gives back to a small village in Uganda to help their economy. Bethany & Philip found each other in the Army while attending Leadership school. Philip is still in the Army & Bethany is currently in school to become a teacher. Philip proposed to Bethany on top of Stone Mountain after a long climb to the top.
