Apple Orchard Engagement Shoot by Nova Markina Photography

Engagement Photo InspirationWhat do you get when you combine two people in love and a lush green apple orchard? A deliciously sweet love story, that’s what! This adorable Ontario engagement shoot by Nova Markina is so natural and effortless you genuinely believe these two are made for each other. Kali first met Matt (your quintessential farm boy) back in high school when they were both working at a local ranch, so it is fitting their engagement shoot is also outdoors.

Nova actually captured these images over two separate mini shoots – one in Fall at the couple’s farm in Glencoe, west of London Ontario Canada, and the other in Spring, at a pretty little orchard nearby in Arkona. Surrounded by crisp bright red apples, velvety green fields and rustic country charm this relaxed and photogenic pair are totally at home. In fact, Kali chose an orchard theme as it ties in beautifully with the apple theme she will use at their wedding. Great choice Kali! If the engagement pics are anything to go by, we know the wedding will be amazing. Congrats Kali & Matt and thank you Nova for sharing these love-birds with us!

Vintage Inspired Georgia Engagement Shoot by Hope Photography

Engagement PhotographyNext I have for you the sweetest Summer Engagement shoot by Hope Photography with two gorgeous people who are totally smitten with each other. I’m loving the whole vintage inspired look of this engagement session, the good old fashioned bottles of Coke featured throughout, and of course the abundance of love these two have for each other. Actually, no-one puts it into words better than the groom-to-be himself. 

Here is what he had to say about his lovely bride to be:  ‘Oh my where do I start? The future Mrs. Taylor to be is almost indescribable. She’s a little peculiar. She doesn’t enjoy partying, listening to popular music, or even following the latest trendy crave going around in the glamour world. She is caring and compassionate, firm and yet tender hearted. She would rather help someone up than kick them down for her own “self improvement”. Yes my friend she is peculiar….. but I have been blessed with the most beautiful, charitable and sincere young woman that any man could dream of. I thank my God for her always, I love you Em.’

Texas Hill Country Engagement Session by Shuffield Photography

Tucked away in the heart of Texas Hill Country is a very small town by the name of Brady. Surrounded by nature and full of country charm it’s the perfect spot for a sweet rustic engagement session such as this by Shuffield Photography. Let me introduce Meagan and Shaun. They celebrated their engagement with this shoot captured initially at Meagan’s parent’s property and then ventured over to a nearby Victorian home complete with a cute barn out back. The results speak for themselves – natural and romantic pics that will stand the test of time. For the record . . . the bride Meagan has a yummy looking food blog called A Zesty Bite and also happens to be a stylist for “Stella & Dot.” So, that explains her fabulous personal style and where the cute accessories came from! I’m happy to report that Meagan and Shaun are now officially hitched as they’ve already recently tied the knot in Austin, Texas on July 23 this year. Well done guys!

Miami Engagement Shoot {Nicole & Edward}

In the mood for some modern love? Well this vibrant and offbeat Miami Engagement shoot should do the trick!  Rosalia from Dolce Photography creatively captured this colorful shoot. She had such a fantastic time shooting this fun couple, I thought it best to let her describe them in her own words:

Meet Nicole and Eddie. They’re fun, they love to laugh, and they’re absolutely adorable together. They also have some rad taste in music (if I do say so myself). Eddie’s eyes are a captivating blue and Nicole’s smile is infectious, aside from the mere fact that she’s incredibly beautiful. I couldn’t help but smile and laugh along with them throughout the entire shoot. Actually, the first time we met was at a wedding I photographed back in May where Nicole was one of the bridesmaids. This time, we met up for a fun filled engagement session in Miami’s Wynwood Art District.

Kate Moss Wedding Pictures and Her Vintage Inspired Galliano Gown

We’re excited to see the first release of supermodel’s Kate Moss wedding pictures and her gorgeous vintage inspired Galliano gown. Kate, and her groom Jamie Hince, tied the knot at a village church and happily posed for photos outside. Kate looked lovely in her cream, slim-fitting John Galliano gown complete with shimmering sequins, delicate sheer panelling and metallic leaf detailing. An equally stunning vintage-inspired floor length veil completed the look, reminiscent of 1940s glamour. Kate’s 15 bridesmaids (one of which was her eight-year-old daughter Lila Grace), looked sweet and summery in whimsical white dresses, ballerina pumps and pretty floral head garlands. We love the 1940s vintage glam style Kate chose –  a look which is elegantly cool, relaxed and delightfully pretty.

The Cutest Surprise Wedding Proposal

This surprise proposal is one of the cutest wedding engagement stories I’ve seen recently. You see, it all takes place in a pretty little Dollhouse Wedding shoot planned by the creative Joy of Wildflowers Photos. Kayla and Shane (the models) are posing as life-sized dolls in her Anthropologie inspired life-size dollhouse. The whole shoot and vintage-inspired decor is as pretty as a picture but, even more gorgeous is the surprise proposal from Shane to Kayla. Here is a little glimpse of their dollhouse wedding proposal. Re-live the whole romantic story and Joy’s beautiful photography here.

Miami Wedding Shoot by Nami Dadlani Photography

Today, I’m really excited to share with you this gorgeous Miami After Wedding shoot sent over by the lovely and talented Nami Dadlani. I particularly love ‘after wedding sessions‘ as they really give the bride and groom an opportunity to relax and have fun in front of the camera without the pressure of the big day ahead. For that reason, you’ll see why there is so much to love about Valeria and Jose’s shoot. First of all, it takes place in the stunning Fairfield Tropical Garden Miami, Florida, giving the whole session a relaxed, romantic feel. Then, lovely Valeria (who I might add, is quite the darling), brings a sense of fun and cheekiness to the shoot. She’s a total natural, effortlessly posing in comfy pink flats, cool sunnies and a fabulous Panama! But, most of all I absolutely LOVE the final picture of the newlyweds beneath the veil! So intimate and really the perfect finale to a truly wonderful shoot.

Haunting Nevada After Wedding Shoot

I’m taken back (in a good way), by this Nevada wedding after shoot featured on One Stylish Bride yesterday. The whole shoot took place in a ghost town in Nelson, Nevada. Using a unique location like this for your wedding photos is such a great idea if you want to give your wedding a distinct edge and artistic flavor. Hat’s off to the talented Las Vegas photographer JamieY who captured this wonderful fashion inspired shoot. The choice of using desolate scenery and abandoned machinery as a backdrop created photos with so much atmosphere and character.  And how about the plane wreck shot – amazing!! Do yourself a favor, check out these stunning pics then head on over to OSB to see the full dose of beautifully ‘haunting’ after wedding inspiration.

Bridal Boudoir ~ Modern Rocker Bride Shoot

Here is a bridal boudoir shoot I found on The Knotty Bride that blows traditional style wedding boudoir photos out of the water. Shot by Courtney Dellafiora (aka The Boudoir Vixen) it is a mesmerizing boudoir style that it is provocative, edgy and super sexy without a hint of white. Courtney was inspired to do something different in boudoir photography and created a theme based on the “modern rocker bride.”   She combined the elements of rock music, fashion and bridal couture to achieve this end result – and boy I think she nailed it!  Not only is it very different but also elegant and visually stunning.
