Colorful Brooklyn Engagement Session

This love sesh from Betsi Ewing Studio is a recipe for Monday morning happiness. Splashed with a colorful Brooklyn backdrop and fabulous Manolo Blahnik‘s to match, it’s no surprise this painter Bride and her Groom are getting hitched in New Orleans. Until then, we can soak up all the fun right here!

From the beautiful Bride-to-be…It’s a long love story in the making. I’m a cajun lady from Lafayette, Louisiana and he is a midwestern cheesehead from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We met almost 10 years ago at freshman orientation at Savannah College of Art & Design. Many years, cities, and a furry Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Oliver later, we are now engaged! We live in Chicago at the moment and Peter surprised me and flew us back to one of our favorite places (and former home) Williamsburg, Brooklyn to pop the question. It was a magical night with great friends, family, sparkling rosé, & whiskey at Fada, followed by fun at the trendy Wythe Hotel. All of our favorite things!

We are tying the knot in New Orleans, Louisiana at the New Orleans Museum of Art. The ceremony will be under age old oak trees and surrounded by amazing artwork. I am a painter myself (LIZFLORES.COM) It couldn’t be more perfect for us! We are excited to start a new chapter in our lives that will definitely involve laughter, love and if I get my way – more puppies!

I’ll be walking down the aisle in an Anna Campbell gown from lovely bride NY. My shoes are Manolos from Bergdorf Goodman’s which is sentimental to me because I was a part of the window display team before our recent move to Chicago.

Dreamy Al Fresco Boudoir Session

We don’t feature boudoir sessions nearly as often as real weddings, but when we do it’s a serious treat, because they end up being beyond beautiful (like painfully beautiful), like this one from Connie Dai Photography and Shalynne Imaging. It’s ethereal in every sense of the word, from the wildly gorgeous petals by Bare Root Flora to the organic invitations designed by Lana’s Shop to the lovely lingerie from BHLDN. It’s one gallery you’ll have a hard time leaving.

From Connie Dai PhotographyThe concept for this shoot was dreamed up by two photographers, Shalynne Imaging and I. When we started to plan, the words we chose to describe the look we wanted were natural, feminine, soft, and romantic. We chose textures and colors that would compliment the environment but also stand out. From the sweet, romantic lingerie from BHLDN and robes from Girl with a Serious Dream, to the organic feel of the gorgeous bouquet, we carried that theme through every design element.

Country European Style Engagement Shoot

I’m not sure exactly what is it, but the moment I saw this e-sesh from True Beauty Marks and Ash Imagery I was entranced. It might be the island-like attire, the European country vibe, the adorable little farmhouse or the mysterious love these two have for each other. I’d like to think it’s the eclectic combo of all. Either way, it’s good, really good and you can get lost with me right here in the gallery.

From the beautiful Bride…My fiance, Michael & I had the privilege to have our engagement photos shot on a friends beautiful 37 acre farm in Quakertown, PA. The house looks as if it were dropped in from Europe, and has very unique touches around the property due to a movie being filmed this year on site. Our photographer friend, Ash Imagery worked with several different film cameras for this shoot, and was able to capture our love for each other perfectly, and got a few shots of our “babies” Maverick & Elsie! Michael proposed on New Year’s Eve, which is how we met years prior, and we are getting married next June near Bucks County, PA.
