Thank you so much to Style Me Pretty for featuring this session! You can check out the full post here!

I’ve been excitedly awaiting the moment I could share this shoot with you! I adore day-after sessions as they are such a wonderful way to get more (and different! fun! fresh!) photos in your wedding attire, without the time constraints of a wedding day.

And then when you throw all these colorful little props into the mix and theme it up a bit? An already-awesome idea becomes even awesomer, and your photographer starts making up words to describe how this session is WAY MORE THAN AWESOME. Tiffany & Allen wanted to base their session around a vintagey camping theme since they enjoy the outdoors, and the stuff they pulled together seriously blew my mind. Tiffany’s father loves dropping by yard sales and antique stores and picking up random finds, so almost everything (including the amazing birdhouse!) were things she found around her parents’ home. I love it!

When it comes time to chat about the engagement session, I always encourage couples to think of ways to incorporate a bit of who they are. Weddings with personalized touches are my favorite, but engagement sessions give additional free reign for meaningful locations, outfits that are perfectly “you”, and any fun props or themes – the possibilities are endless! :)

Suzanne & Robert took the idea of a personalized engagement session and ran with it! They both love the outdoors, & in her emails, Suzanne painted a picture of them camping, with hot chocolate, a tent, and lush natural surroundings. And so for the second half of Suzanne & Robert’s session, we ventured into the hills for a mini camping trip. I love all the details they gathered {Suzanne even brought along her trusty SLR} & their outfit choices as well – the perfect blend of rustic + outdoorsy + stylish, which fit the settings perfectly! We had so much fun setting up the scene & running around the area. And props to Robert & Scott for pitching the tent in what has to be the fastest time I’ve seen – and I’ve done some lightening-fast tent setups in my Girl Scouting days (okay, I lie, we were much better at selling cookies than pitching tents.)
