Vintage Picnic-Inspired Engagement Shoot

Vintage Picnic Engagement Shoot

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to work with the amazingly talented Lauren of Lauren Gabrielle Photography on this lovely engagement shoot. Lauren was planning to capture some shots of her childhood friend Lori and fiance Josh and asked if I would be interested in styling the shoot. I jumped at the chance to work with this couple and am so glad I did. They were so much fun to be around, and the amount of love between these two just took my breath away. Aren’t they just the sweetest together?

Lori and I did some brainstorming for the shoot and came up with the idea of a vintage picnic, as she and Josh love being outside together – and what better way to show off springtime in Cleveland than with an outdoor picnic? Wade Oval provided the perfect backdrop, which is just stunning in the spring. The fries were a little surprise I added in – Lori and Josh love the pommes frites at Bar Cento in Ohio City (which are totally amazing, by the way), so I wanted to work those into the shoot somehow. Unfortunately, our shoot was in the morning and I wasn’t able to get the real deal for them, but frozen fries worked as a pretty decent stand-in, I think. I’m so thrilled with how the photos turned out thanks to Lauren and her serious photo-taking skills. Hopefully you enjoy them just as much!

I just had to add in this last one – Lori lives out of town, and had these incredible flowers that she made for their engagement party in her car (!!). We decided to work them into the shoot since they were just too awesome to leave out. Love them!

A huge thank you to Lori and Josh for allowing me to be a part of their engagement shoot, and to Lauren for the beautiful photos! Even more photos can be seen here.
