West Village Engagement Shoot

From the photographer:

Scott and Fiorella came to me about a year ago for their One Year Anniversary Shoot in Central Park. Those images were stunners, but these were even more amazing! I suggested an evening shoot and we got to the West Village, their most favorite NYC nabe. We were just in time for the Golden Hour, my absolute favorite time of day to shoot. Scott and Fiorella are beautiful people on the inside out and genuinely, some of my favorite clients.

Picnic By The Sea by Trigger Happy Images

We just adore unforgettable engagement sessions, and this Noosa love shoot from Trigger Happy Images happens to be downright amazing! Gorgeous couple Tegan and Jordan captured their romance not just with a pretty picnic setting, lounging in the sun, and listening to the strum of a guitar. But they hit the jackpot by including a stroll along the breathtaking headland with the sun setting no less! Luckily for us (and you), the talented folks at Trigger Happy were happy to share…

From the bride-to-be:

 Jordan and I met 19 years ago in ‘Year One’. Despite showing very little interest in me at the time, he managed to make a lasting impression on me as i can clearly remember from my primary school days thinking that i wanted to marry someone like Jordan when i grow up. It wasn’t until i left that particular school and some 11 years after that, that we crossed paths again at church. It was only then that he took an interest and finally asked me out (i’d been waiting for quite some time!).

For our one year anniversary we decided to celebrate by spending the weekend in Noosa. Little did I know that there was soon to be more reason to celebrate! Jordan had organised a picnic by the bay, where he popped the question. We wanted to keep our engagement relaxed and true to us – acoustic tunes over a picnic by the sea, much like the day Jordan proposed. We are counting down the days until we say the ‘I dos’ at the most beautiful property in the Byron Hinterland in the presence of our closest friends and family. We have loved every second of our journey together over the last 2 years, so much in fact we’ve been inspired to create Roost Film Co, a boutique film house specialising in short cinematic films to capture life’s special moments! http://vimeo.com/roostfilmco

From the photographers: 

We spent one perfect afternoon with Tegan & Jordan, capturing the love, down at Fingal Headland in Northern NSW. The conditions were perfect: gorgeous people, stunning light, gorgeous location, a picnic, sparklers, party poppers and champagne. We couldn’t ask for better. We ended up spending over 2 hours with these guys and we think the images really show. No one was rushing, we were all just relaxed and having fun!

From the photographer: This boudoir session gave me a wonderful opportunity to apply my experience in fine art nude photography during my years as a young photography student. I tried to create an outcome that would be tasteful and elegant, because there is really a fine line in the aesthetics of photography between the artistic and the unrefined.

From the photographer: Where do I being with Amanda and Keith? I’ve known these two for awhile now through mutual friends and frequently seeing a band that Keith was in whenever they were local. At the time Amanda was local and Keith was in Brooklyn. Next thing I knew, Keith moved here. Then she moved with Keith to Brooklyn. Every time I saw them they were together. These two were just inseparable. And I’m so proud to say that throughout all this time I witnessed them fall in love and knew they were meant to be. And they are both genuinely kind people that I like to call friends. So what makes better for a photo shoot then already knowing who you’re working with, right? Thanks Amanda and Keith for accepting me and my goofy self! And also thank you for an awesome engagement session around Madison, New York. I had tons of fun baring the heat together, running around antique shops, frolicking through fields, and working with amazing people!

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!
