Engagement sessions are some of my most favorite images of the wedding experience and I think I’ve pinned down just why I adore them so. It’s all about the love, people! Every image is solely focused on the couple and their love. And that simple concept is just what makes this engagement session from Timwill Photography so essentially wonderful. It could also be that to die for Badgley Mischka gown and you can see all its glittery goodness in the gallery here.
From the Bride… After six years of dating, Will proposed to me in March 2012 in the sparkliest way possible. We were taking photographs after a wine tasting in Napa, when Will handed me a bottle of Schramsberg sparkling wine with his proposal etched in gold on the bottle, along with a beautiful, three-stone sparkler! We had talked previously about getting married either in the California wine country or at the historic Ford Plantation in Georgia, a very special place to us. Since our engagement took place in Napa, we knew The Ford Plantation would be the site for our wedding. We opted for a fall wedding, so we chose to shoot our engagement photo session at Ford in October to get a sense of what our wedding day would be like. Our incredible photographer, Tim Willoughby, captured the beauty of the location exquisitely. We incorporated our proposal story in the shoot and celebrated by popping open a bottle of Schramsberg. The result, was a fun, sparkly, very “us” experience. Tim has left us more eager than ever for October 2013!
