I'm sure by now, you've realized that we have totally gone off the diving board into the world of complete wedding obsession. We can't help it. Mention the words veil, tablescape, or groom, and we're done for. But did you also know that we absolutely love to see a great engagement session as well? Take this Pittsburgh sesh from Craig Photography. The couple brought in JPC Event Group to create a totally inspiring and elaborate atmosphere to their love shoot, and we are so loving every little detail all the way down to the yummy raspberries. The best is that it continues in the full image gallery, so click here!

From Craig Photography ... This couple, Gina and Brian, chose my absolute most favorite space to photograph in Pittsburgh - Mellon Park. It's very "Garden of Eden meets Mid-Summer Night's Dream." There is amazing architecture and all the flowers, foliage and even an herb garden are maintained by volunteers.

For this session I was inspired to call Jody Wimer of JPC Event group, a friend of mine, to help with setting up a more elaborate session within my favorite space. Jody took charge of the entire look and designed and set up three separate scenes/sets for us to photograph in. For inspiration, I simply told her words to describe what I was looking for: romance, color, vintage, ethereal, soft and feminine.

As you can see from the photos, she did a terrific job. She set up a shabby chic set -  the table and chairs with sage cloth and vintage overlay, a vintage set - her great-grandmother's ironing board with colorful flower arrangements and select homemade treats including delicious frangipane mini-pies, and a modern look with a handmade baby's breath garland and accents and hanging fabric.
