I usually only put one post up on a Saturday, but I have to admit that I wanted to share this engagement shoot as soon as I could…and plus, the submissions have been coming in at such a rate of knots since I posted my How to… Get Your Wedding Featured on a Blog post (which I’m not complaining about of course!) but I do feel like I have a lot to get through this week!
Alister & Rachel are having a gothic & diy wedding on a mountain vineyard in a few weeks. The wedding is sure to be super detail-heavy and I can’t wait to share it! However their engagement session was actual quite impromptu. “They wanted a Gothic yet bibliophile theme with a twist for the main part of the shoot, hence the books, vinyl and rug. Then for the rest of it, we simply found some killer locations and let them do their own thing; smiling, laughing, whatever went!” photographer Julian told me.
Thanks to Julian for sharing these

Gothic Woodland Engagement Shoot: Adriana & Ben
December 5, 2012
I do love winter wedding inspiration, but more than that, I love winter inspiration that's a little bit more edgy. Gothic even. To me, winter is the perfect opportunity to embrace your dark side.
And for their engagement shoot, Adriana & xx wanted to to just that as well. "I wanted to really go all out and embodied the darker side of us for our engagement shoot", Adriana explained. "We really weren't trying to be 'dark', we were just trying to be true to us. My fiancé is a musician and I am a event creative director, so I really wanted our passions to be apparent in this shoot. I wanted to create an enchanting feeling and our own little creative fantasy."
Burnt Down House Engagements
June 28, 2009
Tina & Derek's engagements in a burnt out house are so. damn. cool! I am loving the fireplace, the awesome chair and the feather. These have such an intense beauty to them...much love! Photographer Jen Arthur also shot some post wedding portraits as the couple eloped so didn't have pro wedding photographs, which I can't wait to see too.
Woodland Motorcycle Engagement Shoot: Kate & Brandon
Keith A Savage
February 16, 2013
Engagement shoots might not be everyone's bag, in fact I rarely blog them myself. But when I saw Kate & Brandon's intimate and utterly gorgeous shoot I knew I had to break my self-imposed rule. I love how these images perfectly reflect the couple - their likes and dislikes, the things they do together and who they are as people - without any pretentiousness. Nothing is overdone and nothing has been imposed by the stylist - it just shows them.
Deer Forest Engagement Shoot: Meggi & Josh

Meggi & Josh's engagement shoot may not be the most extravagant shoot I've ever featured but it's certainly one of the most beautiful. Have you ever seen deer so tame?! What gorgeous photographs to remember this special time in their lives.

A Simple Engagement Shoot at Missionary Ridge: Matthew & Vashti
May 21, 2012
Matthew & Vashti's engagement shoot may be simple but I think it's perfect. Who needs props and stylists when you have love that looks like this? To me, there is nothing more beautiful than that.
In actual fact I don't think any more words are required...just soak in the simple beauty that these guys have...
Wonderful Woodland Engagement Shoot
June 24, 2016
When I first saw Jody and Shane's engagement shoot (the bride shared some shots in the Rock n Roll Bride Facebook group!) I almost let out an involuntary squeak. I'm sorry but how friggin' gorgeous are this pair!? If you're considering not bothering with an engagement session, I kinda feel these might start to change your mind a little bit...
Camp Halloween Engagement Shoot: Stranger Things, Friday the 13th & Addam’s Family Values!
October 27, 2016
Ash and Nick are both actors who have also had experience in designing, directing and film editing. They knew they wanted to do something funny and creative for their engagement shoot, rather than the standard cheesy hug-each-other-and-smile-in-a-dreamy-field kind of pictures. Massive horror and Halloween fans too, the idea of recreating some of their favourite TV and movie scenes fell into place after that!
