Engagement Shoot

Fantasy Friday ~ A Saucy, Playful Downtown Engagement Shoot

I don't know if you've noticed, but I don't share a tremendous amount of engagement shoots on Bitchless Bride. It's not because I don't like them, I do, and I think they are fun and important, but frankly, they all seem to blend into one another. So, when I see a shoot that resonates with me like this one did, then I feel an overwhelming urge to share it it with you, bridey.

The best part of this shoot? Apparently, Joy and Max are fucking funny. Like, so funny that their photographer, Dana of EarthMark Photography, said that, "Seriously, work should not be allowed to be this fun." OMG... If ONLY all brides (and grooms) were this fun and easy to work with! And after the shoot, they dined at a delishious BBQ joint and spilt a pack of Strongbow Cider. I mean... Enjoy this FAB engagement shoot!

Joy! I'm dying over your FAB blue hair with the hot pink surprises!
I love how they are totally cracking up during the shoot!
Such a romantic shot!
Love the dress and the tats!
What are you whispering into her ear, Max? Joy's totally blushing!!!
Thank you for sharing your frolicsome and lovely engagement shoot with Bitchless Bride!

The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ The BEST Advice from the BEST Wedding Vendors in Boston!

Bridey, today's post is like hitting the jackpot of wedding planning. SERIOUSLY. If you are recently engaged or are in the midst of planning your wedding, stop what you're doing, and focus because you are about to be educated by the BEST in the wedding biz! I asked some of my absolute FAVORITE vendors in the Boston area to share the best piece of advice about planning a wedding, and these peeps? Well, they completely spilled the beans. I mean... There is so much wedding planning goodness in this post, that I could fucking chew it!!!

I rarely say cheesy shit like this, but this is a must read!! So, are you ready to learn? Ready to say, "Thank you, Bitchless Bride!!" Good! You're welcome! 

Wedding Planners:

When you are newly engaged, you tend to become inundated with information overload and it can be daunting to say the least.  My advice to newly-engaged couples is to forgo the route of hiring all of your vendors until you’ve secured the right, professional, experienced wedding planner. Some couples feel it’s best to hire a “day of” coordinator and do the rest themselves, only to learn how much money could have been easily saved by avoiding costly mistakes and uneducated decisions along the way. The right planner should be your guide, your educator, your confidant, your representative along the way and you need to put your trust into this person as they do this every day and truly look out for your best interests from the start. 

Paula Marrero ~ Marrero Events 

My advice to new brides: Don't panic, it's all overwhelming at first but it's important to book the top 3 first-top priorities (if you're not working with a planner) are to find your venue, photographer and band--then breathe!  I also advise brides to wait to design the space until about 6 months before the wedding... You'll be able to have a couple months thinking about ideas, pinning on Pinterest , etc... I find that so many of my clients go in with one idea and once they've relaxed and see what is out there or trending in their wedding year they change their idea of what their wedding looks like--so ultimately they get what they want instead of what they thought they wanted--big difference!

Invitations:

Invitations are the introduction of your wedding to your friends and family; they set the tone for the event. You can’t just get a quote as there are a lot of factors to consider such as quantity, quality, type of inserts, type of print, etc. There is a lot more involved then most people realize. So, plan accordingly.

Mara Weiner ~ Allure Invitations

Cake:

Be your own "bride" ...don't worry about what family, in-laws, friends & co-workers want for YOUR WEDDING. Follow what YOU have wanted & dreamed about. 

Paula Kirrane ~ Icing on the Cake

Entertainment:

Once your venue is booked, the next step is to lock in your entertainment. In order to get the best DJ or band out there, you have to book well in advance. Remember, first and foremost? Your guests are going to remember if they had a good  time. That’s why good entertainment is vital.

Always ask your entertainment vendor about their other recommended services. This is how you get the best deals without making a laundry list of phone calls. They may already have what you need and could save you time and money without sacrificing quality.

Mike Amado ~ Entertainment Specialists

Photographers:

Lately couples are asking me if they should do the "first look". My answer is always YES! The first reveal is always so sweet. The moment is far more emotion and allows for a more intimate/private moment with just the couple. 

Some brides envision this grand moment when they are walking down the aisle, and the groom is sobbing… However, in reality, in a traditional formal setting with 200 people looking at you… The groom often looks like a deer in head lights. Not at all the magical moment you think it will be! So yes, do a first look! 

Lauren Killian ~ Person + Killian Photography

Don’t do a winter e-session! People look freezing, and are super uncomfortable. Nothing like having dirty snow and branches coming out of everyone's heads! Wait until the spring when the temperatures are higher, and the trees start to bloom. I highly suggest April-November.

~ Anonymous Photographer

Cinematography:

1. Make sure that your photographer and videographer work well as a team. Even better, choose a team where your photographer and videographer have worked together and enjoy the experience.

2. Ask your prospective wedding film maker how they operate during the wedding day. Will they have lights on their cameras? Will they be on the dance floor circling the couple during the first dance? Will they stand behind the officiant during the ceremony - Or will they stake out spots based on experience and fade into the decor?

3. Ask your toasters to limit toasts to under 5 minutes. 3 is even better. There’s not much they can say (that won’t be dumb or embarrassing) after a couple of minutes.

4. Invite your guests to leave their phones and cameras in their pockets or purses. You’re paying for pros to document your wedding - don’t let the amateurs get in the way!

5. When considering wedding cinematography, check out the sound  as well as the images of potential pros. Capturing pristine sound of your grandfather’s blessing and knowing how to integrate it with music and image, is a complex art form. Don’t settle for pretty pictures if you already have a photographer you love. When it comes to film making, sound is 60% or more.

6. If you desperately want a top notch film maker to capture your wedding, and have a limited budget, consider one of the following:

a. Grab pics from the HD / 24 Frames per second of the video capture and forego the photographer.

b. Hire the film maker you want and see if you can work out a payment plan that works for you.

c. Opt for the best film maker you can afford, ask them to produce a short highlights now, and wait until you’ve financially recovered to have them edit the feature film.

Florist:

The Best way to trim your budget is to trim you guest list (it literally makes every line item more affordable - period, the end)! (AMEN!!!!!!)

If you "absolutely love and have to have peonies" - know that you absolutely MUST select a wedding date in May or early-June!

Bring as few people to each and every appointment that you book ... the less opinions, the less stressed out you will be!

And there you have it... You're welcome, bridey!!! Now, all you have to do is listen to the professionals trying to help you.

Fantasy Friday ~ A Sexy & Sentimental Engagement Shoot

Bridey. This engagement shoot is so lovely and loving that I have no words. In fact, I am going to let Amber, the bride, share with you a 'lil something she wrote to Daniel...

"Here I am, standing at the brink of our wedding day and I haven't felt a single fear. I've not worried once that I will ever miss a day of your love. I find comfort in your feet on mine at night, because we prefer to sleep back to back, and on opposite ends of our bed. There comes a time in your life after becoming a parent that sleep is important and our "I'll meet you again in the morning time" turns into an average thing. I know that just because we aren't always physically "open" for touch that we are lacking something. I find myself everytime I lay with you, I know that where I am today is not where I would be without you. You keep me level headed when I am beyond a breaking point and clouded behind stress. You are my hot shower in the evening when I wash away the last bit of my day. You are my comfort, and you are my roots that ground me. I love you, I need you, I appreciate you."

What a beautiful shot..."Meet you again in the morning"... with a smile on my face.OMG! What a GORGEOUS babe!!Um... Sniff sniff... This pic is simply moving...Such a beautiful (and cool) couple and little family!! Thank you for sharring with Bitchless Bride!

Fantasy Friday ~ An Extreme Engagement Shoot

Yup! They’re filthy. They’re covered in mud from head to toe, and you know what? I fucking love it! Meet Kemper and Ben. They are extreme enthusiasts, and made sure that their passion for all things awesome was captured during their engagement shoot. As you browse these jaw-dropping photographs, you’ll see Kemper and Ben in some seriously compromising “poses”. We have some midair ski shots, mid-ride motorcycle shots, the muddy shots on the ATV, and a few mushy shots of them kissing. Apparently, this engagement shoot was actually a series of three sessions to make sure the talented Brian Smyer of Smyer Image could acquire all of the adventure you are about to see.

Bridey, if you and your sig other are driven towards anything out of the ordinary, bring it to your engagement shoot! Not only will you have some FAB pics to hang around the house, but you could display them at your wedding reception like Kemper and Ben did! BTW… Kemper purchased two wedding dresses; one for the shoot and one for the wedding. Totally genius!

I mean... Holy shit!! That's amazing!OMG! Kemper! Are you freezing?So cute (when they're all cleaned up!)!Here they go!OMG!! You can't even see them!Easy now...Take it off, baby!Hose her down!So awesome!!! Gotta love the dirty hands and passionate hearts!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ A Flashy, Fun, Blue Shoe Wearing, Cherry Red Chevy Rockin' Engagement Shoot

Envy. That's all... I am completely and totally envious. Seriously, I just can't get enough of Leah's hair. Right?? It totally makes me want to go back to my teenage years and rebel (well, a little bit more). The only time I got my hair a teeny, tiny bit this fire engine red was when I dyed it with... KOOL-AID!! Yup. I dyed my hair with fucking Kool-Aid! And it worked! I don't know what's worse; that I dyed my hair with a popular (at the time) tasty bevy or that it fucking worked!! And, according to wikiHow, apparently, I was WAY ahead of my time! (Bridey, if you're interested in trying it, you must use the unsweetened packets vs. the sweetened.... TRUST ME!) Anyway, back to Leah and her fabulous hair and this cool ass shoot!

Between the red hair, the cherry red Chevy, the blue stilettos, the Golden Retriever and the heat between Leah and Matt, I just couldn't help myself. I HAD to share this engagement shoot with you, bridey. Because, if you're interested in having an engagement session, then take a few pointers from Leah and Matt. Shake it up! Change your clothes, bring props (the Chevy does count as a prop, right?) and get into it! Or else why do it? Right? So, doll, have fun scrolling!

I mean... FUCK YEAH!!! I need these shoes!Look at that hair!! OMG!!!Hot!Awwwwwww.... Doggie....

Fantasy Friday ~ A Downtown Denver, Save the Date Engagement Shoot

I am a sucker for these photographs. Seriously, look at the fabulous dip happening! Right?!! In the middle of the street... OMG! I love the element of danger (I mean, shit... there are cars coming!)... It's fun. It's sexy. And, perhaps it's because I have always wanted to be "dipped" or perhaps it's because Kiri and Michael are definitely the "cool couple", but either way, these engagement pics tell an awesome story and double as pretty kick ass save the dates too!

Bridey, if you are looking for a way to capture your engagement AND need some save the dates, then let Kiri and Michael lead the way. These pics are interesting and tell a story. I find that I am curious to see what happens next. The locations (and the "costume changes") will draw you into the web that is Kiri and Michael and entice you too!

Kiri, you are adorable! I love the look on your face! But, Michael... The way you're looking at Kiri... Hot damn.OMG. Here he goes again!Gotta love the smile kiss!HAHA! This one makes me laugh...So sexy. So cute.

Fantasy Friday ~ An Engagement Shoot that is Sexy, Fun and Fabulous

Bridey, don't you kind of feel like you are encroaching on Abbey and Dan's space somehow by staring at this picture? Good! That's exactly how I WANT you to feel. Actually, I'd be happy if you felt anything when you look at engagement photographs. Because oftentimes they can be a bit lackluster and ordinary. But, these? Well, they are anything but ordinary. They are extraordinary. They are fun. And you know what? Other people (as in anybody who is not the bride and groom) will actually want to look at them. I mean, there are costume changes and scenery changes and mood changes... Seriously, I could go on and on...

Brideys! If you are looking for inspiration for your engagement photographs, just look down. Abbey and  Dan nailed this shoot with the help of their talented photographer, Tyler Boye of Tyler Boye Photography! Whatever you do.... Be extraordinary not ordinary.

Like... The cutest pic! I love how Abbey is totally ticklish!Lovin' the how colorful this shoot is!!Wardrobe change in three... two... one...Hot damn.Get ready for some steam...H.O.T. H.O.T H.O.T.Compete with THAT, bridey!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's a Superhero Engagement Shoot!

Don't be jealous of Diana and Kyle's shirts (I know, right? I totally am! I need to have that Wonder Woman tank!). Be jealous of this phenomenal engagement shoot! You know what, bridey, fuck that... Don't be jealous, be inspired! Be inspired to do something different. Be inspired to do something colorful and unique as opposed to simply smiling for the camera and planting a few kisses here and there. It doesn't have to be this, but why be boring when there are so many fun places to shoot your engagement photos?

These insanely awesome photographs were taken in front of Kyle Brooks street art in Atlanta. You know I'm a graffiti enthusiast, so when I saw this shoot, I just HAD to share it with you, bridey. Just wait, these two are getting married any day now, and I am hoping that Julie of Jules Photography will be kind enough to submit their COMIC BOOK WEDDING to BB so that I can share that with you too... WOW! You think that was a big enough hint? Anyway, enough outta me... Enjoy these fabulous and fun pics!! 

Between the tat and the shoes... I am OBSESSED!KAPOW!!!! Obvi, I love her hair, but with the KAPOW? I can't... It's just too awesome!Time to kick these off! Um Kyle... What are you whispering into Diana's ear? That girl is blushing!!Diana, I love your dimples! So cute.Costume change.LOVE everything about this shoot!!

Fantasy Friday ~ Not Your Average Engagement Shoot

Every now and again, I receive an engagement shoot or a wedding submission that so perfectly fits my mood, that I truly do feel like it's fate that it ended up in my pretty little hands. Enter Kacie and Shaun. Their engagement shoot is super unique and edgy, clearly encapsulating who they are, and I gotta say, it is exactly how I am feeling as of late. Plus, I am heading to Vegas in a few days, and let's just say that when I'm in Vegas, my edgy side definitely shows her face! And, I wanted to leave you brideys with a post that will stay with you while I am dabbling in debauchery at the Bellagio, and I feel strongly that this post will do the trick!

Really look at the opening pic... Got me thinking, and I felt like I needed to know more about Kacie and Shaun, so I had Kacie answer a few Qs for me! Pretty fucking fab!

BB: How did you two meet? I was best friends with Shaun's cousin, Candace, growing up and we used to say that we were cousins; now we almost are. It wasn't until Shaun and I were older, 5 years ago maybe (not sure), that we got to know each other. I was working at a local bar that he frequented often, very often, like his name was everyday guy, and the rest is history. I was even almost fired for dating him in the beginning, but that's another story.

BB: Kacie, have you ever shaved Shaun's head before? No, he doesn't let me! I offer all the time, something about him wanting to live is usually the response I get... He was scared, and still sleeps a bit uneasy.

BB: When and where is your wedding? Our wedding is Halloween! The ceremony is being held at the Newburgh Brewery & reception at F.E.A.S.T. at Round Hill in Washingtonville, NY.

BB: Who proposed and how? This is a complicated story, I'm not even sure if most of our friends and family knows the truth... Long story short... Shaun had an 'experience' while quite intoxicated one night, and woke up the next day a new man. I was terrified and had no idea what this new Shaun did with old Shaun. I went to work at Gleason's, a restaurant in Peekskill NY, an he showed up 15 minutes later just to tell me he loved me. Now, I'm really freaking out, I thought he was going to kill himself or something, this behavior was very unlike him. Later that night he showed up at my job again, sitting at the bar, holding my hand, crying, I knew something was up... He said I want to spend the rest of my life with you, will you spend the rest of your life with me, I said I'm In! And that was that. 

BB: How many tattoos do you have between you two? I have 3, but it's really over 30 hours. How many is a trick question. The Dragon piece on my back is now finished, what see you was just the start! Shaun has 8, but well over 60 hours!

BB: What's your favorite kind of beer? 
Shaun's is Guinness. I can't pick just one! But if I had to, La Roja from Jolly Pumpkin brewery.

BB: Are you going to have a signature drink at your wedding? Since we are doing a 1920's Speakeasy theme we're going to stick to the classics, a Bee's Knee's or a variation on a Manhattan.

I really love this shoot! Thank you for sharing with BB!!!

Fantasy Friday ~ Dogs Are People, Too... A Hawaiian Engagement Session

Yeah... I can sometimes be a softie. Seriously, look up! There's a dog in that photo. See that adorable couple with their adorable golden retriever? I mean, how could I resist the cuteness? Not too mention that I am a huge fan of bringing what's important to you into your engagement shoots. For some of you, that means spicing it up with a paint fight or rolling around on an old truck or trashing an old motel room together, and that's fantastic, because it's personal... But, for Michelle and Seung, it's about their love for their dogs, Bailey and Sadie. Sadly, Sadie died about a week before this shoot, but if you scroll down, you'll see how Michelle and Seung paid tribute Sadie without turning a happy day into a sad one. 

Bridey, remember that if you're going to take the time (and that of your photographer) to have an engagement or save the date shoot, then do it right! Make it personal, or don't do it at all. Seriously, look around at all of the photographs you have of each other. Are they the same? And, are they boring? Probably!! So, step out of the box, and make your engagement shoot personal or don't bother. Okay... off my gigantic soapbox. Go look at the FAB pics!
I love how they are looking at each other!!

I am SO going there... I feel like Seung is looking at Michelle, like "Hey girl... What do you say we take this to the grass?"Bailey is wearing a photograph of Sadie around her neck.

Fantasy Friday ~ A Divinely Sexy & Seriously Funny Engagement Shoot

When I think about an engagement shoot, it's rare that I think of them as "sexy" or "funny". Usually, I think about them as "boring" or "cheesy". Sorry, but it's true. I mean how many ways can a couple smile at the camera or look longingly at each other? Right? But, when I received Chelsea and Darian's shoot from the super talented Creatrix Photography, I was excited to show you, brideys, that an engagement shoot can be fun and sexy all at the same time.

It doesn't hurt that Chelsea and Darian are a great looking couple, but more than that, it's clear that they are completely captivated by one another. Sparks are flying all over the place with these two! And yet, they are laughing their way through the shoot. They are having a ball and it shows! 

Brideys, this is the way to do it! Have fun with it! Get into the moment! Lose yourselves! Trust me, based on these photographs, Chelsea and Darian will look back at their engagement session as more than just a photo shoot, but more like a fantastic memory.

Sexy. Funny. Sexy.Clearly funny! I wonder what she was laughing at!!Anybody else thinking Top Gun right now?

Fantasy Friday ~ I Love a Good Time Warp! An Amazing 1920-30s Inspired Engagement Shoot

I’m a little obsessed with time travel. Like… I think I get it from my dad, who is a touch crazy like me (oops! I def have that backwards; obviously I get that from him, right?), but no matter what, we’ve both been somewhat drawn to what life was like in other decades. I think that’s why I love Nicole and Jonathan so much. Their engagement shoot was inspired by the 1920s-1930s, and apparently their wedding had a 1940-50s vibe to it (don’t worry, something tells me that you will see it showcased on BB). Seriously, how fucking cool is that? I mean, love the idea of being swept into another era, even if it is just for a few hours at a fabulous wedding.

The other thing I absolutely adore about this engagement shoot? Nicole and Jonathan clearly had fun. Just look at these photographs! They are having a ball! They look fantastic, and when they look back on their engagement shoot, they will actually remember it. It won’t just be some day that blends into all of the others, like, “Oh look, here we are together smiling in front of this tree.” Or, “Look at us kissing in front of this statue.” BORING!!!! They will remember their experience at Idlewild, a park that dates back to the 1900s. See? History IS fun! Who the fuck knew!

Bridey, I’ve said it a million times… Your engagement shoot should be something that means something to you two as a couple. Put some thought into it… Don’t just phone it in and do whatever. Take advantage of the opportunity to shine. Ahem… Okay, that’s enough preaching. Just enjoy these kickass photographs!

Suddenly, I have the urge to go to a carnival!

OMG... Nicole! You are so adorable!! So cute!

Bam! Bam! Bam!

Fantasy Friday ~ A "Trashy" Engagement Shoot

I couldn't resist. I just had to share an engagement shoot that was not only super distinct and off the cuff, but so cool and so fun that I wish I could have been there. Well, maybe not rolling around on the bed with the bride and groom, but definitely in the vicinity!

From the photographer, Jessica Olivero: Nikki and Michael are getting married in next year in New Jersey, and they wanted an engagement session that went against the grain as well as fit who they are as a couple. Michael is a DJ + both he + Nicki are total music junkies. We rented a low key hotel room + "trashed" it with bottles, records, clothes + lots of other rad things.

I LOVE how raw this session feels....like the morning after a crazy party.

I love all of the "trash" in this shoot!!! Every time I see a cool engagement shoot like this one, I wish I could rewind, grab a cool photog friend and the hus and get snappin'!

The BEST album cover ever!

Super Stylish Sunday ~ Little Italy Engagement Shoot

Don't get me wrong, I love the wild and crazy engagement shoots. Painting each other, hunting each other and even rolling around in the snow with bottles of spray paint are fantastic, but if you're not into the craziness, a traditional engagement shoot is just fine. However, if your passion for each other bleeds through... Well, that's just fucking splendid. Take Louanne and Joe for instance. It's clear to me that they have electricity just by looking at these cool ass photographs. Right? 

Louanne is a super stylish and creative hairstylist and makeup artist. Joe is a witty and sarcastic middle school english teacher (awwww...). I'd say their personalities balance each other out perfectly. 

From the Iliana, the photographer: "For their engagement session, Louanne and Joe wanted to go somewhere vibrant and fun. We decided to shoot in Little Italy in Downtown San Diego because there's so much color and energy there. We had fun exploring the area and snapping some great photos. At one point it did start to rain, so we ducked into a nearby bar-- Bottlecraft-- which is one of all of our favorites. Those ended up being some of my favorite photos! And in the end, the sun began to shine, giving us just enough time for a few more photos, with the sunshine glistening off the wet surfaces!"

This one really speaks to me. If I were them, this photograph would totally be hanging over my fireplace for the world to see..

Super Stylish Sunday ~ Engagement Session Gone Wild!

I know that this will surprise you, but I like to have fun. Seriously, sometimes a girl just needs to let her hair down and get a little bit crazy. But, what happens when you throw in some paint (and maybe even some booze) and bring your man with you? A fucking awesome engagement shoot! That's what!

Gotta be honest (because I don't know how to be any other way), I LOVE to work with people who like to have fun. It certainly makes my job so much easier and more enjoyable when a couple is great to work with, and rock a fantastic sense of humor. And this engagement shoot? Well, they definitely have a sense of humor!

And you know what else? The shoot? It's super stylish too. What a great idea for an engagment session! I mean, I love all of the bright colors, the natural surroundings of Mount Charleston, and the whimsy fabulousness, don't you? But, most of all? I really dig how Ayla and Jon play with each other. It's clear that they have deep connection, and I bet a superb love life too! Sorry... Couldn't help it! Anyway, enjoy the cool photographs! I hope they inspire you, bridey, to break out of the mold and let your true colors (haha!) shine through!

In case there was any question of who the groom was!

Or the bride...

I love Ayla! She's always laughing; her mouth constantly stuck in a smile...

Super Stylish Sunday ~ Pick Up Truck Engagement Shoot

I gotta say... I really LOVE Super Stylish Sunday. I love it because anything goes. And today? Well, it's no different. Although, I must admit... I was going to go a whole different route for the post today, but when I saw this in my inbox, I felt like I NEEDED to share it. Immediately. Because for some of you, today's post is simply a cool couple who chose a pretty fantastic way to photograph their engagement session, but for me it's much, much more.

I hate to say it, but usually? I get so damn bored with the majority of engagement photographs I see. And while the couple may be pretty to look at, dressed perfectly and completely in love, the photographs tell me absolutely nothing about who they are. They are empty somehow. But these? Well, they tell a story, and outside of how "pretty" the couple is (and they are pretty!), you get a feel for what they like, and who they are, versus how long they can gaze into each other's eyes for the sake of a picture. 

Seriously? What an incredible way for two lovebirds to spend an afternoon together? A gourmet picnic in the park on the back of their teal 1950s pickup truck?! It doesn't get much better than root beer, apples, French cheeses, bread, nuts, and some caramel popcorn. Right? Oh, and you know what? Let's snap some photographs and call it their engagement shoot! LOVE IT! I love the energy, I love the spirit, and I totally love how their photographer was able to truly encapsulate who these two people are as a couple.

I cannot get over the whimsical look in her eyes! So stunning...
