The Shoot That Almost Never Was

Suzy & Gerard actually got married in 2005 but still wanted a day (years!?) after shoot with the amazingly talented Megan Welker– well who wouldn’t! They almost had a disaster with the dress however as after Suzy got it back from the cleaners she discovered they had taken out all of the puckers making those stunning billowy pleats,OMG cricis!! Luckily they knew a fabulous seamstress who painstakingly put them all back in for the shoot. It almost never happened and that would have been a travesty!

The Fairground

Funfair? Check… Balloons? Check…Adorable couple? Check…That gorgeous streaming Californian light? Check!
It seems I will never tire of this scenario for an engagement shoot – it really shows the a fun side to any couple that just can’t help but make me smile – especially that ‘slide’ shot – how much fun does that look?! Oh how I love it so…

Patience

It may be a virtue, but patience certainly isn’t something I have.  Especially when it comes to sharing images like these ones. I was going to wait a little while to blog these, but it turns out I literally have no self control and I couldn’t hold off any longer. I’m pretty sure you’ll understand why…

Eeek so gorgeous!

Phenomenal.

I don’t think anybody could dispute that Heather & Grayson of Jagger Photography are ones to watch. Their outdoor portraits are simply phenomenal! Do you remember Maurice & Tasha’s amazing balloon filled (oh yes!) desert day after session? Well I couldn’t say for sure, but I’m included to suggest that Cooper & Michelle’s engagements are even better! Thoughts…?

Thanks to the lovely Heather for sending these images!

The Enchanted Forest

Sarah & Kevin’s North Carolina wedding has got to be one of the most detail-perfect enchanted woodland wonderlands I’ve ever seen, with branches even weaving and wondering throughout the rooms the couple got ready in. This stunning venue is Garden Retreat in Poplar

At this outset this day had an air of magic about it.  From the ever so slightly scary giant wooden insects, to the awesome ‘picture on the wall’ photo booth, to the amazingly detailed centrepieces – there is nothing about this wedding that doesn’t exude enchantment. The magic doesn’t stop there though – the couple actually DIY’ed the whole lot! Oh yes…That is quite frankly incredible and makes me feel terribly terribly inartistic.

The couple’s portraits in the woods are so perfect they look like they were shot on the set of a Hollywood movie – most probably directed by Tim Burton or written by Lewis Carroll. I just can’t get enough of the back lit images! 

As always, thanks to Tara for sharing her incredible images with me. Eeeek..I looove them!
