Katie + Alex: A Summery Southern Engagement Shoot by Almond Leaf Studios
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Engagements

Today’s gorgeous engagement shoot comes straight from the South—Chapel Hill, NC to be exact. Katie and Alex met as undergrads at the University of North Carolina (go Tarheels!), so when it came time to capture their pre-wedding bliss, ace photographer Elizabeth Marx of Almond Leaf Studios scouted three picture-perfect spots around campus.  We love the way they used simple outfits and backdrops—it really lets their love for each other (and those beautiful smiles!) shine through.

From the bride-to-be: Alex and I grew up about 20 minutes from each other in small and smaller towns in eastern North Carolina.  As close as we were geographically, and as intertwined as our families were in the local arts and athletics communities, it wasn’t until college that we (finally) met.  Our overlap at UNC Chapel Hill was very brief, but we were introduced by mutual friends during Alex’s senior year and my freshman year.  Post-grad, Alex and I both found ourselves in Charlotte (he beat me there by three years, naturally, and had secured a graduate degree in the meantime) and apparently we both needed a little nudging from our mothers (guilty, yes) to get us on our first date.  After sharing chips and salsa and a bottle of wine at a local Mexican restaurant, we realized that the saying is true—Mothers do always know best. And here it is, four years later, and we are getting hitched!

Suzanna + James: A Very NYC Engagement by Alea Lovely Fine Art Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements

Suzanna and James’ engagement photos make NYC look like just about the most romantic place on Earth… from the Brooklyn Bridge to the steps of a brownstone, Central Park to Times Square, Alea Lovely captured the bride and groom-to-be, dressed up, dressed down, and dressed for a night on the town in soft fading sunlight…

Alea says… This was a lovely New York City engagement. Suzanna and James just got engaged a few months ago and are planning their wedding for 2013. It was beautiful in the fall for New York and we shot in Central Park, on the Brooklyn bridge and in Times Square to get the full feeling of NYC. We went with colored attire for the park that gave it a very fall look, and stuck with clean dark formal looks for the bridge and Times Square. I felt that look was very “New York” and fitting for the couple, as the bride-to-be is an attorney and the groom works for the city as a developer. New York is their home and I wanted to give them photographs that resonated with their personalities and their story.

Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements

Here’s a big dose of color to nearly round out your week!  After getting engaged on a trip to the Oregon coast last summer, lovebirds Megan and Brian headed to a kitchsy trailer park mall in an industrial neighborhood of Seattle for an engagement sesh with Genevieve Pierson.  Megan says, ‘Brian and I met through mutual friends in college.  I asked him for the first date, as he was a little shy.  Our first date was at his place, painting and drinking red wine.  Shortly after he fell for my giant cats and it’s been true love ever since!’

These two look so presh in their Modcloth (her) and J. Crew (him) ensembles!

Colorful County Fair Engagement Session by Look Here Photography
Posted by Kate. Filed under Engagements

I’m totally loving all of the engagement session goodness we’ve had to share this week!  With the winter holidays behind us, and Valentine’s day upon us, ’tis the season, as they say!  Most importantly, I love how couples and photographers are coming together to create charming, heartfelt, stylish vignettes that tell the couple’s love story.  Take these two cuties, for example.  Eric and Rachel have planned a Milwaukee wedding day, but Rachel really wanted to incorporate some aspect of her hometown of Greenville, Ohio into the wedding planning process.  She has so many childhood memories of the county fair, so she dreamed up a whimsical concept.  The colorful setting in the late afternoon, summertime sunlight was quite the photographer’s playground; Amber of Look Here Photography did a fab job capturing these two in action! 

Rachel wore a darling summer dress from Anthropologie, and hand-in-hand with her colorfully preppy clothed fiancé, they traipsed the fair ground and Greenville sites: the brick gum wall at the Maid-Rite (where people leave their mark with, ahem, used gum), game stations, a vintage photobooth, and the ferris wheel!  Sigh, what fun it is to be in love in the summertime… Big congrats to these two!
