Crystal and Micheal met through Micheal’s band so they wanted to incorporate a music theme into their engagement session. Gabrielle Halle Photography set the scene with an urban backdrop, guitar, speakers, and mic creating a wonderful shoot that not only captured their love of music but most importantly for each other.
From the Photographer
We started in the historic Strip District of Pittsburgh which is an area of renovated warehouses, old churches, and industrial history. Most of the Strip is now a market district of specialty shops and art galleries, but along the river, the 40th street bridge and old railroads lend a beautiful architectural backdrop. Micheal and Crystal were so natural in front of the camera and quick to laugh and enjoy their time together. We headed to the North Shore afterwards, to shoot against the beautiful Pittsburgh skyline and close out the evening enjoying the lights on the waterfront at sunset.

With crystal blue waters and a romantic sailboat as their inspiration, this captivating couple decided on a gorgeous sailing theme for their engagement session. We love everything about this fab shoot – from the nautical details, to their sunset stroll on the beach, to the absolutely STUNNING engagement ring. Add in some gorgeous images by Studio Sequoia, and well, we agree they can ‘sail away with me’ anytime!
From the photographer: When we got the call from Jackie and Chris saying they wanted to do an over-the-top engagement session on a sailboat, we just about lost out minds with excitement… then we met them and the first thing that flashed through my mind was, “holy moly, they’re GORGEOUS!” And SO IN LOVE!!! From the moment we came upon them readying their sailboat to the very last sip of champagne on the beach, their spark of passion and true intimacy just overwhelmed us. From San Diego Bay to Coronado beach, we’ve fallen head over heels for this couple.

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.

You 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.

I’m seriously in love with this couple! From the very first precious photo by Emily Davis Photography, you can tell that they are head-over-heels in love with one another! They’re just too cute for words! In fact, everything about their Texas engagement session is totally heavenly…. the beautiful natural light, their sweet loving poses and the cute quilted tent creating their own little love haven. Ahhh, yes… I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait to see their gorgeous wedding here sometime real soon.

Welcome to another fab week at LWB my lovely country bumpkins. It’s time to take your seats, cos this might be the best farm engagement session EVER. Snapped to perfection by Litrato Studio, this boot-scootin e session at Riverdale Farm in Ontario Canada is full of sweet rustic charm, baskets of fresh farm eggs, and an engaged couple completely in love, who happen to be the real deal. Now that’s a combo sure to put a smile on your country-lovin dial!
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.
