Cool, Fun and Unusual Engagement Photo Shoots!!

So I have been scouring all over for unusual engagement photo shoots to share with you all. I think it is really cool when I see couples that are choosing to be themselves in everyway even when they are headed for the altar. In this day and age, it is not necessarily the easiest thing to do since everything is mass produced and in someway made for you. We are often told how things should be, what clothes are supposed to be in right now, right down to the colors to use for this season's wedding. I am always impressed by couples that choose to remain true to themselves and do what they feel is right for them. I thought I would share these photos of couples on their engagement shoots to give you ideas of how you might make yours not just a unique event, but also one that tells a wonderful story about the kind of couple you are. I for one was really floored by a bunch of these photos, so I hope you enjoy them and that you are
inspired to go out of the box to create your own wonderfully unique engagement story. Unfortunately not all the photos have names on them, but in the event that you are the photographer that took any of these, please contact me and I will be more than happy to give you the credit for it because I would absolutely love to! Otherwise Enjoy!

Inspiration for the Offbeat Bride!

Hi Everyone,
It's been a while, as I have been out and about working hard. I may have mentioned that we were working on putting together some photo shoots, and that is where I have been and what has been taking up so much of my time. The good news is that we just finished one, and I even have some photos to share with you. We were so lucky to find such an amazing location - it was easy to get inspired. This concept came about while I was thinking of how offbeat brides who want fantasy weddings can do it creatively by adding color and texture to an unexpected location. I made the centerpieces, and all the stationery as well as the head wear and accessories. The gowns are all part of our bridal gown rental collection. I wanted to show a variety of bridal expressions, so we played with the colors and accessories to create different looks. Take a look at the rest of the photos on our website I hope you get inspired to think outside the box and to have your own creative wedding. Enjoy!
