Engagement Shoot – Dazzling In Dallas

25/09/2014 | 4


Courtney & Derek   ♥   Texas, USA

Photographer:   Anna Smith Photography


This is one super sleek engagement shoot! Not only are today’s couple oh-so-stunning, but they chose dazzling Dallas as the urban stage for their exquisite engagement shoot – resulting in what I’m sure you’ll agree is a striking set of photographs that they’ll treasure forever.


It’s quite frequently mentioned on the blog that the most enchanting engagement shoots that land in our Inbox are the ones that showcase a couple’s personality and this love shoot certainly encapsulates Courtney and Derek.


They teamed up with Anna Smith Photography to produce two quite different yet perfectly in tune portraits with a sleek urban setting versus a whimsical woodland theme.


The stunning stone architecture of their hometown Dallas created a magical metropolis backdrop, whilst in contrast the rural forest scene with vintage props conjured up a real romantic feeling of togetherness.


Oh, and I must mention Courtney’s beautiful rose gold ring…seriously swoon-worthy!

Photography:   jFairchild Photography


If you saw Kaityln and Ryan’s engagement shoot a few weeks ago then you’ll definitely remember it – it was all kinds-of-awesome!


This just-plain-cool couple teamed up with the amazingly talented Jen from jFairchild Photography to celebrate their engagement with one seriously sleek shoot. Be sure to check it out if you missed it, the photography was atmospheric to say the very least.


If you did have the pleasure of seeing their engagement shoot then it will come as no surprise that Kaitlyn and Ryan’s wedding day continued along the same bohemian vein.


This is how you do chic and unique! A relaxed outdoor ceremony (with a tipi for an altar) was the perfect setting for this stunning boho bride and her hubby-to-be. Their day was filled with jaw-droppingly beautiful blooms and natural details – they well and truly rocked the rustic wedding vibe.


From Kaitlyn’s darling detailed dress, statement headdress and oversized bouquet to the bridesmaids fabulous flower crowns, their laid-back yet oh-so-stylish theme was consistent throughout every aspect of the day and bursting with personality – prepare to be inspired!

Kaitlyn & Ryan   ♥   Texas, USA

Photographer:   jFairchild Photography


Today’s engagement photography epitomises the style of love shoot that I enjoy to share on You Mean The World To Me (and hopefully that means it is the kind that you love to see too!).


Engagement shoots have become so popular in recent years but the ones that really stand out succeed in capturing the essence of the personalities, expresses their individual style, and are set within surroundings that have meaning and represent something of the couple. Of course amazingly artistic photography, unique and characterful locations, and a cool (not to mention beautiful!) couple all helped this engagement shoot to be worthy of the pages of a glossy magazine!


Engagement shoots are a special gift to treasure; they capture the memorable moments before you are wed, but they are also probably your first (and quite possibly your last?) professional photographs of you as a couple, beyond your wedding day pictures. Having relaxed, less formal photos of you as a pair is certainly something to cherish and I’m quite sure that Kaitlyn and Ryan value this stunning shoot of them – by the talented Jen Fairchild – immensely. Anyway, here’s Jen to tell you more…
