This Friday's engagement session goes out to all your fashionistas and fashion-lovers out there!  Not only does M Studio Life Photography capture some seriously sweet and stunning moments but we love this couple's modern Mad Men-esque attire.  This make-up artist bride-to-be is working from H to T!  We are loving the beige palette and adorable bow headband.  It's classic and chic all rolled up into one gorgeous package!  We adore it so much we just had to share a buying guide!  So make sure you check it out below after you spend some time in the full gallery!

1. This bride-to-be's outfit is pretty much perfect just the way it is with the beige BCBG dress, Michael Kors peep toe pumps and black headband.

2. A little lighter on the wallet but just as easy on the eyes is this Vince Camuto dress, Marc Fisher pumps and adorable bow clips from Forever21.

3. This Rachel Zoe dress definitely brings the perfect blend of classic and chic with a little dash of sexy!  Pair it with nude pumps by Vince Camuto and a darling sequin headband!

From Maggie of M Studio Life Photography... Victoria and Johnny have been dating for almost a decade. They will be getting married in July 2012 in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. They chose a destination wedding to accomplish two things: to have their wedding somewhere exotic and warm and to sneak in a much deserved vacation/honeymoon. Their wedding theme is modern vintage meets nautical influences. Victoria is an established makeup artist in Toronto. Johnny has jumped around careers over the years — going from auto mechanic to studying to be a firefighter. Firefighter jobs are scarce in the big city (think 3000 applicants for 7 positions), but he was offered a job in the outskirts of Muskoka. Being a firefighter means having to live a maximum of 10 minutes away from your station. With Victoria's gigs happening mostly in the downtown core of Toronto and within local GTA, Johnny decided to give up firefighting in the meantime to be together with Victoria. He is currently now a project manager for a tiling company.

Moving out together was a huge step for them ... so they decided to rent first. They currently live in a downtown condo in a penthouse suite close to Liberty Village — they've been calling it home for the last few years. Many of Victoria's makeup gigs are within a few kilometers of the condo, so the location was perfect. We decided to do their engagement shoot there, as the location is close to their hearts. With floor-to-ceiling windows, a beautiful party room and rooftop patio, the natural lighting was absolutely gorgeous. Keeping with the theme of their wedding, Victoria had that bit of vintage-style dress, makeup and hair going on, while Johnny had that nautical/preppy feel. With their wedding coming up in DR (meaning all-inclusive, all-you-can-drink!), we incorporated some martini glasses filled with vodka into the engagement story as just a little sign of what's to come. Cheers!
