Elegant Lakeside Engagement Session

With a storm teasing it’s approach as Charity Maurer snapped away, this engagement shoot captures the powerful beauty of Mother Nature, not to mention the romance between these two lovebirds. The natural backdrop may have been absolutely amazing but it was no competition to the looks this stylish duo had for each other (and that Joanna August for BHLDN dress!) – join me in crushing on these cuties in our VAULT right this way!

From Charity Maurer Photography… Stunning in her BHLDN dress, and looking dapper in his grey suit, Valerie and Tom are the picture of romance. What’s more is they are even more in love with one another than they look. To celebrate their engagement, the couple headed out to a secluded lake in the high desert of Arizona. Surrounded by both cactus and water, mesquite trees and waves, this couple shone like stars. As they melted into one another’s arms, huge storm clouds threatened to roll in, creating the most stunningly breathtaking background. This session was the perfect expression of their love: dreamy yet powerful. We hope you enjoy the photos as much as we have!

From Megan RobinsonInspired by the colorful Arizona landscape, this editorial was a three part, month long project with Sage & Stem and Posies Floral. We wanted each session to be able to stand on it’s own while also working together.

Part One was our Food Editorial. Overall, the goal with this project was to take inspiration from the season and with Part One, we kept it reminiscent of the cozy gatherings, festivities and holidays that come with the changing season. By incorporating artisan breads and cheeses, locally made honeycomb and foraged figs, our set up came to life and shows that you don’t need much to make a statement with your food display. We also felt that a rustic, savory food display was more of the esthetic we wanted to create for the season over a “sweets” table.

Part Two was with our stunning model, Mia, and custom black gown by Claire La Faye. The textured blend of honey colored roses, fading greenery and pops of blush and mauve by Posies Floral complimented the bold gown perfectly! We wanted to show the outcome of choosing one bold and one subtle piece and being able to blend them together. And those custom made earrings by Borcik! We couldn’t get enough of them. Confessions of a hairstylist kept Mia’s lavender silver hair looking windswept in a romantic braid.

Part Three was our table scape inspiration for that Fall get-together or intimate wedding. We used the same backdrop and cloth as Part One and kept our metals and greenery in tune from both Part One and Part Two. Sage & Stem added tall black candlesticks to our table setting with a clean, simple marble place setting and overflowing blooms.

From Posies Florals… Honey is so versatile and is unique to its location in both flavor and color. It can be deep shades of amber, or rich and golden, it can be creamy in texture, or smooth as silk. Honey was our inspiration for this shoot. We wanted to show case Raw Local Honey. Its color lends itself to the deep fall warmth.

We worked closely with a real local bee keeper, H and H Honey, who provided us with honey from all his different hives that were located in different parts of the city. This allowed each type of honey to be different, we really wanted to play off all the shades of the honey. As we focused on the honey, other aspects of this editorial came alive.

We wanted the overall feel of this shoot to be delicate, and warm. We didn’t want a fully styled table, so we chose a more intimate picnic set up. We chose fruits that were in season, cheese, and delicious artisan breads all styled on a large wooden cutting board.

Bella Lilie Bridal supplied us with such a gorgeous gown designed by Love Marley. The Gown lend itself to the warm sun, and deep texture of the ferns. It was graceful, and perfect for a fall wedding. Charity Maurer and her husband were our models. They are deeply in love and were able to give us true emotion while they were being photographed. Daniel Kim captured everything so perfectly. He is a genius with lighting, and movement. He was able to bring the glow of the sun into each of the photos.
