Santa Cruz Boho Beach Engagement Photos

Categories Real Weddings

They met at their church’s college group and it was only three months later that Colleen knew that Dave was “the one.” For Dave, it was two years later–when he realized that he wanted to spend “forever” with this cheerful brunette who could light up a room! Shot by Laura Hernandez Photography, their love story continues…

Here they are at Santa Cruz Beach for a charming engagement session that’s off the beaten path. Enjoy!

Springtime Engagement Sesh in Seattle

Categories Real Weddings

Deal alert! 20% off Large Save the Dates | Expires 4.14.14 | Code: WAPSTDL

Speaking of Save the Dates, almost every photo in Tara and Kelly’s sun-soaked, springy Seattle e-sesh would look incredible on any of the large, full photo save the date designs. The expansive backgrounds are perfect for creative text overlays!

That said, Tara and Kelly began their Seattle, WA engagement session in the northwest neighborhood of Queen Anne. From there, they went to Washington Park Arboretum–where they were surrounded by nature and drenched in sun. They ended their day perfectly–with a sunset in Parson’s Garden and Kerry Park! Along with beautiful photos from Amanda Lloyd Photography, two of our fave highlights include all the gorgeousness within the arboretum and of course, Tara’s vintage 1800′s engagement ring. Enjoy!

Fun, Retro Styled Engagement Shoot

Categories Inspiration

Giveaway alert: MagnetStreet is giving away150 Save the Dates to 5 lucky winners! Enter on Facebook.

About half of our couples know their wedding theme right from the start and beginning with their Save the Date, start stringing the look and feel together. Now, the other half doesn’t necessarily have their look and feel nailed down so early, so they simply pair their fave photo with their fave Save the Date design. Super fun and it’s all good… Whichever camp you fall in to, a themed engagement session is a really fun option for giving guests a glimpse into your wedding look, styles and personalities. Case in point: today’s themed shoot from Alabama’s j.woodbery photography. Classic attire, vintage props and a 1950′s diner all give laser focus to this retro engagement shoot and a vintage Save the Date. Have you considered a theme engagement session?

From zany to sweet, check out the bottom of this post for 10 engagement theme ideas and sessions.
