I mean... How could I NOT open this awesome engagement shoot with an ass grabbing photograph? Right? The rest of the pics are totally FAB, but this one definitely "grabbed" my attention. Sorry, I couldn't help it... Anyway, bridey, this is a perfect example of fun engagement shoot which doubles as a really cool Save the Date. Seriously, do you think Jessica and Mario are ever going to forget this? Somehow, I doubt that this particular day is going to get lost in their memories. You know what does get lost? Boring and mundane engagement shoots. That's what!
So, bridey, if you're looking for a fun way to capture your engagment, why not sling Holi powder at each other and photograph it? Right? Nothing wrong with a good ol' paint fight!! Especially if you're an art teacher like Jessica is! Seems totally fitting! Have fun with this one!!
Oh shit! Here it comes!OMG! I totally want to play!This one is cool and scary all at the same time.
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....
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.
