I am SO EXCITED about these pictures.
And here‘s a more recent post featuring one of their yummiest engagement sessions EVUH. If you decide to click on it, you’ll see that I included a teaser in anticipation of this exact shoot that I am so freakin’ excited to share with you now. I am, like, bursting at the seams right now over this shoot!!!
The biggest thing I take away from these photos – aside from their outRAGEOUS beauty and color – is the impact that just a few thoughtfully chosen details can have on your very own e-session. If you’re looking to ramp up the cute factor of your upcoming shoot, I suggest taking some pointers from Vania and Christine’s direction with this shoot (they’re the dynamic duo behind Simply Bloom). This means a trip to the antique store is a MUST. You never know what you’ll find and that makes it SOOOOO FUUUUN. In this shoot, the ladies employed a brilliantly colored french cookbook, a tea set, a honey bear, eggs, an apron, mini paper lanterns, some desserts… ok they went crazy with props. And I love them all the more for it – just look at the results!!! BUT you don’t need ALL of this to make your e-session stand out, I promise. Even just one or two props, if carefully chosen, can a perfectly pretty e-session make. No antique stores nearby? I’d advise checking out your local Anthropologie. A bit more pricey, but hey, it’s your engagement… which means it’s worth it, OBVIOUSLY. Plus, they almost always have a nice gathering of odds and ends in their sale section. For example, last time I went they had this huge wicker basket of totally random and totally rad door knobs. An inspiration shoot stylist’s dream.
Final thought on the matter: it certainly doesn’t hurt to have the ladies of Simply Bloom taking your pictures. ;)
