Tenille & Chris ♥ South Carolina, USA
Photographer: Judy Nunez Photography
If you’re considering having an engagement shoot look no further for some serious wow-factor inspiration…
Today’s artistic love shoot took place at one of America’s most beautiful gardens – the Magnolia Plantation in South Carolina. Not only did the oldest public gardens in America create a wildly romantic setting but the couple’s talented photographer ensured that their final photographs portrayed their togetherness and their love of being creative…oh and their incredibly cute pooches too!
Amber & Matt ♥ Isla Popa, Panama
Photographer: David Pezzat Photographers
Even when it’s a lovely sunny Monday morning you can’t beat a little escapism and a few stolen moments dreaming of faraway shores…and since we’re talking long distance wanderlust, how does jetting off to the paradise islands of Panama sound? Dreamy yet adventurous right?
So, grab yourself a coffee and take a quick peek at today’s inspiration as I have a feeling that you’ll love the look of idyllic Isla Popa (the second largest island in the beautiful Bocas del Toro Archipelago in north west Panama). Not only a heavenly honeymoon location, the outstanding natural beauty and crystal clear waters of Isla Popa have become a new favourite when it comes to far flung destination weddings. When’s the next flight?
Laura & Andrew ♥ Queensland, Australia
Engagement shoots are quite a rarity on the blog, unless there is a really interesting story to share with you about the couple, or the shoot took place with an amazing backdrop to boot (anything travel or destination related gets a thumbs up of course!).
However, Laura and Andrew celebrated their engagement on the beautiful beach of Noosa in Queensland, Australia, so I obviously couldn’t resist sharing these stunning snaps of the Sunshine Coast – what better way to brighten your Monday morning?!
Swirltography used the atmospheric light of sunset and beyond to capture some beautiful moments of this cute couple together. These are the kind of engagement photographs that are exciting! Not only do they capture this special moment in time, but they create unique imagery with you and your beau in, not just posed pictures. These engagement pictures are certainly hang-on-the-wall-worthy and I’m sure Laura and Andrew have done just that at home.
Claire & Kevin ♥ Bordeaux, France
I love it when you stumble across a totally new and exciting holiday locale that you knew nothing about previously, but that instantly makes you want to add it to your future must-visit list. One such delightful destination is the beautiful beach location that Claire and Kevin chose for their engagement shoot – Biscarrosse, situated on the Atlantic Coast in southwest France.
Apparently a renowned surfing spot that attracts surfers, windsurfers and kitesurfers from across the whole of Europe, Biscarrosse is also surrounded by three inland lakes that come complete with water activities and is settled beside the largest forest in Europe (the Forest of Gascony), therefore developing itself into a family-friendly beach and outdoor activity vacation resort.
Biscarosse beach sports a busy beach life vibe with a central plaza and pedestrian streets that are packed with restaurants and bars with buzzing outdoor-terraces and as the sun sets the atmosphere comes alive with street performances and live music. Sounds like a truly idyllic summer vacay spot doesn’t it and could there be a more picturesque setting for a sundowner engagement shoot?!
This cute couple and their photography team (Ossama and his wife – film wedding photographers from OssaPhoto) wanted to capture the action, love and beautiful light of this stunning beach haven and draw us in to the feeling of an endless summer in France….I think that they did just that!
Antonia & Bristow ♥ Piha Beach, New Zealand
Photographer: Kats Photos
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting New Zealand you’ll have witnessed some of the most breathtaking and diverse scenery in the world, first hand. From towering icy blue glaciers to active volcanoes, from mesmerising mirrored lakes to palm fringed-beaches and everything in between, these temperate islands in the South West Pacific Ocean are home to a completely unique and varied landscape.
Piha Beach sits on the wild west coast of the Auckland Region, on the North Island of New Zealand. Piha is one of the most popular beaches in the area (it’s not hard to see why, hello azure blue-ocean, tall dramatic rocks and pristine sandy beach!), however Antonia and Bristow managed a few quiet moments all to themselves in this magical setting, creating some of the most beautiful engagement photographs that you’ll probably ever see.
Over to the lady behind the lens to tell you more about this cute couple and these downright gorgeous images…
Hana & David ♥ New York City, USA
Photographer: Olli Studio
New York City is inarguably one of the greatest cities on the planet and when the weather comes to life in springtime, leaving behind the snowy, frozen sidewalks and looking instead to blooming walkways of cherry blossom, there’s no greater time to visit the wonderful city that never sleeps.
With the weather so fine, New Yorkers head outside, to Central Park (amongst other locales) and the sunshiny setting of these famous grounds made a picture-perfect backdrop for today’s engagement shoot along with the majestic architecture of Grand Central Station.
Take a few minutes and enjoy soaking up the spectacular sunlit scenery of this magical metropolis…wish you were here?!
