Ralph Lauren Inspired Engagement Shoot

This could quite literally be a fashion shoot if you ask me. These outfits are just so fabulous. You'll be spending the next bit of time gawking over these details, the collection of found items and the beautiful florals!


From The Photographer: "High School sweethearts, Brooke and Trevor are more of a real life Ken and Barbie than just about anyone we've met. But what is even more amazing than this couple's looks is their love for each other. Recently married, we decided to give them a post-wedding shoot to continue to showcase the love story that is only continuing to develop. Styled by Kaleb Norman James Design, this Ralph Lauren, prep-inspired shoot began with the couples love for fashion and all things Americana. We wanted the overall feel to transport you to a Hampton's manor home, complete with manicured gardens, sparkling silver and old world touches like the reclaimed trunk, vintage trophies and candelabras. Many of the items such as the fabric spools, flag and trunks were sourced from Snohomish, a local town, minutes from the location full of antique stores. We wanted the items to be authentic and original to the location we were shooting in and we couldn't have found more perfect items. We chose to work with purple florals, which might have been rather unexpected, due to Ralph Lauren's signature Purple Label line- a nod to his glamorous 1920's inspired designs."

From the Photographer: For a couple who lives by the beach, a serene engagement session in a tranquil, woodsy area is what Brittany and MJ had in mind. Upon our first meeting, I was immediately informed they don't do PDA well and an engagement session might be difficult for any photographer to shoot ;) So we opted for a secluded venue where I captured these two being themselves: goofy, funny and best of all, just happy being together. No props, just them, and their tiny photographer. Bride stands at 6ft tall, and groom is about 6'4" :)

What an adventure this shoot was! I made my way down from Portland Oregon to Bend Oregon where I met this amazing couple at their home to go over clothing ideas and then we drove to rock climbers heave Smith Rock. Chris and Julia share a deep passion for rock climbing and really wanted to incorporate it into their engagement shoot. Eastern Oregon has such an amazing climate and landscape for shooting, which made this shoot so awesome. in every shot you can just see how these two adore each other and truely love spend their time together. I loved being able to photograph them not only a portrait type way but also in a very journalistic way too:)

Not a drive-thru... or a little white chapel... but a gorgeous wedding at a golf resort. They were in town for a planning session with their designer, and a visit to Micah's Grammy. So, we opted to have a quick mini-engagement session before they headed back to Arizona. For us desert rats it was an extremely cold day, but Amy and Micah rocked it, nonetheless. :)

From the photographer: The couple got engaged at Disneyland and wanted to incorporate a "storybook" theme into their shoot. I had the couple bring several of their favorite books to use as props. One was Thundercake so I made a cake to match the one in the book.

From the photographer: "Melissa and Ben are an incredibly laid back and carefree couple who genuinely love one another, which is so evident in these images. They scoped out a variety of locations, but fell in love with the simplicity of this large field on the side of the road! We spent our morning laughing and chatting, as they nuzzled in to one another to capture this sweet season of their lives. Melissa and Ben will be married in a backyard affair this summer."
