I’m a huge fan of fun engagement sessions- which basically translates into actually DOING something during the shoot instead of just posing for a few hours. I definitely wish my fiance and I had done something fun. (And we WILL most certainly be doing something fun for our anniversary session!) This engagement session that Kristen Weaver sent me recently defines exactly what I mean by doing something…

See how great the photos are when the couple is doing something?! I love it! I like picnics, but the game arcade is pretty awesome too! Any suggestions for things to do for an engagement session?

Bringing It Back: Going Away Dresses

 

I hope everyone has had a great weekend!

Something that used to be popular in the “old days” that is coming back in style is the Going Away Dress. Having a Going Away Dress is ideal if you’re having a “send off” at the end of your wedding night. Now, if you’re just going up to your hotel room right away, you most likely won’t be having a “send off”. But if you are planning on having a send off, wouldn’t you rather leave in something stylish and comfortable? Plus, you can leave your wedding dress in the hands of someone responsible, and you won’t have to worry about taking it with you in the morning.

A Going Away Dress doesn’t have to be white- it can be whatever you want! The most important thing is that you’re comfortable and you feel gorgeous! Is anyone planning on changing into a Going Away Dress? I definitely wish I had!

Today’s Real Wedding took place in South Carolina and was sent to us by Indigo Photography. The bride was absolutely gorgeous, and I love the bold color scheme of navy and red. And talk about Southern- instead of a candy bar, there was a peanut bar! What an awesome idea!
