No-one does engagement shoots like photographers from The Philippines… and Gem and Jay-R’s shoot by WeDoItForLove is no exception!I love this for it’s super creative and totally over-exaggerated concept.

So, Gem & Jay-R are medical reps for one of the country’s top brands… so what do they do? Dress up in straight jackets of course! They took inspiration from the movie, Love & Other Drugs as well as Blink 182’s music video for After Midnight.

An Urban Beach Engagement Shoot: Jeni & Manny

I don’t feature a while load of engagement sessions on my blog, but I simply couldn’t resist Jeni & Manny’s urban beach session. “When Boston make up artist/hair stylist extraordinaire, Jeni Teran, contacted me regarding engagement photos with her fiancé, I immediately started brainstorming!” wedding photographer Shannon Grant told me. “How would I do justice to such a sweet and (ahem) gorgeous couple?”

“Keeping the background more neutral by using the beach really helped set off her unique style and the couple’s down to earth personalities. Sometimes less is more and with lots of color going on, a nice simple location really allows for people to shine! Just an outfit change, a blanket and their love was all we needed to create this fun loving, beautiful engagement session.”

A Cute n Colourful Danish Engagement: Jakob & Majken

“When I first met Majken & Jakob, I immediately felt in love,” Danish wedding photographer Amanda Thomsen wrote. “It is not a secret that I love colours and a style that shows personality. Well, as you can see these two wonderful people had that, and on top of it all, they where so warm and funny that I felt like I had known them for a long time.”

I’m featuring this super cute engagement for no other reason than it makes me incredibly happy. These two are seriously cute and their matching glasses make my heart sing!

PS Stand by because I’ll have their equally adorable wedding hitting the blog in the next few weeks, hurrah!

“Beauty & The Beast” A Taxidermy Engagement Shoot: Mckenzie & Alex

For their engagement shoot, Mckenzie & Alex wanted something unique. They wanted something that screamed ‘them’ and showed their quirky side. They came up with the taxidermy concept after visiting a museum and falling in love with how they looked and the artistry behind each one.

“We were initially going to try and shoot them in the museum but then we found out that we could actually rent the animals!” photographer Michelle told me. “I then came up with the idea of shooting them in a simplistic urban setting to add a little bit of surrealism to the concept.”

An Adventure Shoot: Kirsta & Alec

The eagle-eyed amongst you might recognise Kirsta & Alec from their amazing Mexican Art wedding that I featured in February. Well they’re back, today with their amazing post-wedding shoot…and Krista has new (omgsoawesome) pale blue/grey hair!

The couple, who have just moved to Australia, wanted to do this shoot with their wedding photographer Galaxie Andrews to remember the places they love near their old home, before heading off for new adventures in Oz. “A mini end-of-season adventure with Kirsta & Alec took us on the road, exploring the quiet desert rivers, sandstone boulders and a placid mountain reservoir,” writes Galaxie. “We paused to enjoy wine, cheese, prosciutto and fruit, while great blue herons hovered above, and everything around was quietly breathtaking.”
