Inspiration for your road to the altar


How great is this couple and their cheery balloons?  I think the contrast of their formal attire paired with the colorful balloons makes this engagement session extra adorable.  Kellee and Derek are from Savannah, Georgia and chose to take their engagement portraits in the historic downtown area.  Perfect backdrop!

My favorite type of engagement shoots are those that capture the personalities of the couple and give a joyful vibe…they capture a moment in time that will allow you to look back on your life at that moment and remember what you were feeling, how excited you were to take the next step in your lives and be married.  This is exactly that type of session!  Denae and Dan are the type of couple that ooze creativity – she is a writer and he is a photographer, and their engagement session with the talented Kaylee Eylander Photography perfectly represents them as a couple.  The photos were taken on a gorgeous fall day on Lake Washington in Seattle, and it’s pretty safe to say that row boat is all sorts of fabulous!


I am sure a lot of you newly engaged readers are starting to think about engagement photos, and I thought this shoot from Kay English Photography was full of great inspiration. In my humble opinion the best engagement photos are simple and timeless – something you would still have framed on your mantle when you’re celebrating your 50th Anniversary. The dramatic and artistic backgrounds make the perfect backdrop for these photos and I also like that the couple opted for both formal and casual styles. Timeless for sure! Have you started planning your engagement session yet? What all do you have in mind?
