Engagement Dreams


A lot of the major details are done….Booked all that need to show up on our special day…and now as the summer comes in I take a break from the wedding plans. I have to say that being a wedding planner & being so darn efficient at planning our wedding is a little bitter sweet. The majority of the plans were seriously done in SIX whole days. Hahah….in the same token part of me wishes I would have had more things to do.

I guess it’s like parents that get sad when their babies grow up & they aren’t newborns anymore….loving the moments when they had to take care of every detail of their little lives. For me….my weddings are my babies! I take care of them as if every single one were my own. And now that I have ours to plan, as much as I want to get through the process asap…part of me feels sad that I don’t have much more to do.

So with summer rolling in we can enjoy the outdoors & relaxing in the sun for a few {Wedding Planning Free} months….till Fall comes in & we have showers, bachelorette parties & any other loose ends that need to be tied.

BUT ~ I do have one exciting summer wedding activity that I’m jumping out of my skin to arrive. We are doing our Beloved Engagement Photo shoot at the end of the month. Beloved session you say??? What in the world is that? Well, our photographer Jason Kim shoots a niche technique called “Beloved Sessions” ~ And here is in his words what it means:

Beloved is…

“To anyone watching from far away, a Beloved session might look like any other portrait shoot. But as we play some light games together or as I get into asking a few questions here and there to help set the stage, I hope to see the raw, uncluttered emotions come back out.  While the rest of the world keeps walking by, you will be with the love of your life, enjoying each other.  You deserve it.” ~ Jason Kim

Beloved Sessions evoke raw emotions ~ A reminder of who we are as individuals & as a couple ~ And then what better way to show the world how much we love each other than to capture it in a photo.

Yes I {we} are excited for the shoot ~ But the one thing that got our blood flowing was seeing a picture from 37 years ago! A picture taken of my parents as my father walked my mom over the threshold to their property where they lived. I’m absolutely in love with this picture of them & we hope to recreate this shot of them during our shoot.

 ~ In the meantime here are a few images from our amazing photographer that may inspire you ~

~ Here are a few samples of Jason’s work ~

I simply adore his work &  we can’t wait

In preparation for our shoot ~ I’ve been doing some research. I want to capture something fun, whimsical & yet classic for our shoot. We also want to do something a little fun for our Save The Dates {we want to capture the fact that even though our shoot will be on a beach ~ we will remind our recipients that our wedding will be in the winter}

Jason came up with a brilliant idea & I can’t wait to make it happen & show off not only our personalities, but our fun spirited nature.

One of my favorite “Wedding Porn” {as I like to call it} sites is Style Me Pretty . I don’t think there is a DAY that goes by without me going on there & being inspired by their amazing photography & ideas. So in looking around their engagement shoots I came across some fantastic sessions & pictures.

And why do I love them so much ~ Each has their own unique look or feel about them. So here are some of my favorite images from engagement shoots
