Engagement Picture Session & Shots I Love

This weekend, I'm venturing down to the SC coast (again) to do some engagement pictures for a really good friend of mine. I've dabbled in photography for most of my adult life...even making a little money at it, but never making it a career. It's a saturated industry these days. But, when a friend asks, I will dust off the old camera and get to snapping. :)

Since this is a fall engagement session outdoors, I'm gleaning some inspo from my own engagement photo session (done by my awesome cousin!) and some from Pinterest. Here are a few of my faves...

I love how this plaid blanket/wrap makes it look a little more casual and relaxed. Plus it's cozy!

I'm obsessed with shoe shots. I don't know why. I just love them. 

have wedding pictures taken the same place the engagement pictures were taken! love the idea!:

Who doesn't love a porch pic? And when it involves a swing? DOUBLE YES.

Full body, tall "framed" shot. I love how this looks and how the trees frame the photo.

I'm definitely going to go for a dreamy, landscape-y photo like this. I hope there are some beautiful meadows/fields I can photograph!

The leaf shot. A little difficult to pull off but definitely a favorite. I love these full body ones and the face-front ones like we had for our session.

The framed-photo-fall-foliage-colorful shot is a winner too! 

Pretty much any time I can incorporate fall color into a photograph, I'm going to do it. It's so beautiful and when nature provides the backdrop, you use it! I'm hoping that once I get the photos edited, I'll be able to post some on here. I can't wait! 
Don't forget to join me on Thursday for Thursday Thoughts and link up your post about ANYTHING! Hope to see you back here then!

  1. oh so cute! Endless ideas with Fall in the air. I LOVE the first one.

  2. The wedding team was very supportive. The Chicago wedding venues had everything a girl might need. I highly recommend getting ready in the bridal suite. They lit the fireplaces and the views from the suite were exceptional.


Comments make me SO happy! Go ahead...make my day. ;)
