California Heritage Schoolhouse Engagement Shoot by Jonathon David Photographers

Heritage Schoolhouse Engagement Shoot

You’re bound to love this little gem of an e session from Jonathon David Photographers. Wendy and Aaron’s oh-so-cute love shoot takes place in a heritage schoolhouse where they got to go back in time and play big kids together. An engagement shoot as adorable as this always gets a big tick in my book. School’s out class!

Bride-to-be Wendy shares: Aaron and I met rock climbing on Bishop’s Peak in San Luis Obispo. We both love nature, so outdoor engagement photos were an obvious choice. One less obvious thing about us, is the goofy streak Aaron and I have in common. We decided to play off of our silly personalities by doing part of the shoot in a historic one room school house. I am a teacher at an outdoor school, so the idea fit us perfectly. We sure had fun acting like over-sized kids. We added details with the chalk and blackboard, before we headed over to the pond on the school property! Because we love nature and the outdoors so much we decided to take a small boat out on the water.

Otter Lake Minnesota Picnic Engagement Session

It goes without saying that we love, love, love weddings here at Love Wed Bliss. But we must confess that when a engagement shoot lands in our laps, which so happens to be styled to perfection, we break out in swooning fit that we would usually reserve for the prettiest of sweet I do’s. So what better way to kick start 2013 than with this swoon-worthy love shoot captured by Katy Hall Photography. The gorgeous Kayla and Josh stole our hearts immediately – with their cool Anthropologie style, picnic engagement session and amazing blue eyes …. so much so, we have no doubt they will run away with your hearts too!

From Kayla: Josh and I met my first night at college in Winona State at a friend’s house and continued bumping into each other through mutual friends and an organization on campus. We first began hanging out with each other because of our mutual interest in the TV show LOST, watching episodes at his house for a study break (or procrastination). I knew he must really like me when I got Swine Flu that semester and he still hung out with me when I was feeling pretty sick! The proposal – There are some really cool bluffs in Winona and a lookout over the whole town from one called Garvin Heights. Some of my friends brought me up there one night and down a little path lit with candles he was waiting with chocolate covered strawberries and my favorite food – cupcakes! A friend filmed the whole thing. My favorite part of the whole story is that’s where my dad proposed to my mom.

From photographer Katy Hall: I choose Tamarck Reserves for their setting because it offered a beautiful organic feel to the first part of their shoot. Kayla and Josh are very stylish, but very simple and real and I wanted their love and fun spirits to shine through. We then went to Otter Lake to bring their adventurous spirit to the shoot. They love anything that allows them to have fun together and is out of the ordinary. Their big day is July 6, 2013. They are getting married at an amazing venue – the Mayowood Stone Barn. I am already counting the days, because this wedding is going to be the icing on the cake to this session!

‘The Notebook’ Engagement Shoot by The Click Chic Photography

Who doesn’t love the most romantic movie of this generation – The Notebook. It’s the type of love flick which, if you’re a hopeless romantic like myself, has your tearing up as soon as the soundtrack starts. Well, like so many, this adorable Kentucky couple were inspired by the film and decided to use it as the theme for their engagement shoot. With lovely photos by The Click Chic Photography, a charming historic country town for an authentic looking location, and 1940’s vintage inspired clothing, it’s a engaging little love shoot which takes us on a sweet stroll down memory lane..

From the photographer: In styling Jen & John’s engagement shoot to compliment their Hollywood-glam inspired wedding, we looked to one of the great Hollywood loves stories of our time, ‘The Notebook’. Luckily we were close to a historic small downtown that lent itself to the perfect backdrop. Jen channeled vintage romance with a 40s-style dress and pumps and red croc clutch and John kept it simple in a white button-down shirt and khakis. Pops of crimson in the details helped make this shoot cohesive and incorporate their wedding colors.

Auckland Royal Easter Show Engagement Session by Coralee & Alex

Auckland Engagement Shoot at the CarnivalYou know it’s a sure sign warm weather is around the corner when you see a happy carnival-style engagement session like this one. This cute pair decided to celebrate their engagement with a shoot at the Royal Easter Show in Auckland, where there’s no shortage of colourful backdrops to feast your eyes on! We totally love their fun vibe and relaxed style in front of the camera. In fact, we’re not sure who may have had more fun at this e session – the lovebirds or Coralee & Alex (who snapped all their gorgeous pics). Judging by this, their wedding will be awesome and you’ll never guess what theme they’re going with? …. a carnival wedding theme of course!

From the photographer: Courtney and Cori are a treat! When Courtney emailed us and suggested we do their engagement session at The Royal Easter Show, we thought it was a freaking awesome idea! After a couple of coffees to fuel up, we hit the show late Easter Monday when the light was low and (hopefully) the crowds had died down a bit (they hadn’t). As an added bonus they reduced the entry fee to $10 (from what used to be a whopping $50…..or something ridiculous like that!).

Courtney and Cori are hands down the cutest, most ridiculously bubbly, friendly, awesome and completely head-over-heels-in-love with each other people,  we’ve ever met. The kind of people that when you meet, you never want to say goodbye to at the end of the shoot, ’cause you just want to go and hang with them some more.

In-between gobbling down candy apples, hot-dogs and candy floss,  we managed a few laps and photographed the playful couple amongst the carnival rides. As the sun dipped behind the Super Loop we enjoyed way too many Lil’ Orbits donuts before we said farewell. But never fear, in true Courts & Cori style, these two will be having……you guessed it…..a CARNIVAL themed wedding next year. As we strolled around the Easter Show, Courtney excitedly pointed out all of the rides they had booked to be at their wedding! Yup, fun-park rides at a wedding! Can’t wait. Courts and Cori, congratulations on your engagement! Quite possibly the cutest couple….EVER.

From the photographer: Finally spring is here and we’re so excited to go out and shoot. We loved the idea to shoot on a Farm. Luckily we found one! The shoot was held on Riverdale Farm, in the heart of downtown Cabbagetown Toronto. It represents a rural farm in Ontario. We were so blessed because the weather was perfect. Not too hot, not too cold, and everything was bright and sunny. It was so delightful to feel the spring breeze once we were on the farm. Flowers were blooming on the side walk, the grass was so fresh and the children had a fabulous time watching the animals.We then went looking for details to enhance the shoot –  like rustic farm items (e.g. pale and sprinkling can, eggs, baskets etc). We brought some tulips and purple spring flowers to add colors and a spring feel and to complete it all, our real lovely engaged couple Jessica and Ron. Finally, to perfect our Southern country theme, Jessica wore her southern country boots.

1920s Style Engagement Shoot by Rennard Photography

Hold on to your hat’s lovelies, because you’re about to be blown away! This 1920s style engagement shoot delivers nothing short of ‘wow’ appeal. Captured by the talented Rennard Photography it’s a editorial style love affair with a stunning vintage glam theme, a real engaged couple (who totally rock the 20’s era) and wait for it….not one, but two 1920s vintage airplanes which, my lovely people, are the real deal. I’m still picking my jaw off the floor from the AMAZING kiss on the runway shot! Check it out and you’ll understand!

From the photographer: Chad and Melissa met at a training meeting that Chad was training Melissa for. She felt those butterflies in her stomach and they did not seem to want to go away. The demo was complete and the lesson drifted into great conversation. They talked about the weather, Canada, travel and other various topics. After a few minutes they noticed that they were the only ones left in the conference room. Later that afternoon, she received an email from Chad. It read, “Hey there Melissa… Wanted to make sure you had my email address just in case you had any additional questions while you get acclimated to the new sales tool… Happy to help…” She knew that this email was not just an ordinary email. It was Chad’s attempt to pass on his contact information. Her heart skipped a beat and stirred up those butterflies. Their engagement session was inspired by the couples love for the 1920’s. Chad is a pilot and had a friend who owned this unique plane that only two of it’s kind exist in the world.

Laguna Beach E Session by Jodi B Photography

There is so much love and sweetness emanating from each and every image in this lovely Laguna Beach e session it makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over.  This adorable couple not only showed how much fun they can have together, hamming it up with a cute chalk scene and hitting the kiddies playground; but they also showed the romantic intimate bond they share as they strolled along the beach and only had eyes for each other. Thanks Jodi B Photography for sharing with us the California love!  

From the photographer: Alex and Lorie let me play with them!! I got to create a CHALK scene and posed them laying down on the ground as I ran up the stairs to do an aerial shot! It was so fun! He’s a traditional southern gentleman, cowboy boots and all…and she’s a sweet Southern belle! Love these two! Check out his boots! We ran around town in Laguna Beach, and ended with some sweet beach scenes.
