Rustic Save the Date and E-Shoot in the Woods

Categories Real Weddings + Wedding Stationery

With its inherent sense of calm and muted color schemes, winter is truly a lovely time of year to have an engagement session! The raw beauty and neutral tones of the surroundings help to keep the focus on the couple–and that is exactly why we are in love with Rachel and Joe’s wintry engagement photos in the woods! Our lovely bride-to-be also happens to be part of our MagnetStreet family! Rachel is a graphic designer {check out some of her designs here}. Without further ado, here is Rachel and Joe’s rustic Save the Date and snowy e-sesh in the woods.

“We are an outdoorsy couple and hiking and hanging out in the woods is just our style.” Rachel

About their rustic Save the Date 
“I designed our save the dates and had them printed by MagnetStreet. Being a designer, it’s often hard to design for yourself. I had ideas of where I wanted to go with our stationery, but it wasn’t until I saw the pictures Emily took that everything just fell into place! My fiancé comes from a large family of hunters and I wanted to incorporate antlers into the design. We will carry this rustic, organic theme throughout the rest of our wedding stationery and into our wedding. We are going for a simple yet elegant wedding that really represents us.”

About Emily Schmidt Photography
“Emily is great and she’s been so awesome to work with!! I sent her a mood board of the style we were going for and she was able to really bring our vision to life. It was snowy and a little chilly when we did our pictures, but she made it work and we are so happy with them. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for our wedding this September.”

Get your Pinterest-pinning finger poised as we’ve got a beautiful Jacksonville, Florida engagement session from Gagan Dhiman Photography for you today. Chrissy and Josh had four uniquely-themed engagement sessions in one–each offering a different {yet romantic!} feel. They started out at the Sweet Frog frozen yogurt shop, following that up with a stint at the the Jacksonville Zoo. Then, it was off to the beach for some amazing sun-setting shots and guitar playing on the shore. Finally, they wrapped up the evening with a night out in downtown Jacksonville. Enjoy this sweet session–full of crisp, colorful photography and tender moments–forever frozen in time.

Toronto’s High Park Engagement Photos

Categories Real Weddings

Stephanie and David are an outdoorsy couple that opted for High Park–Toronto’s largest public park to have their engagement photos taken. This park is gorgeous! The cherry blossoms were even in bloom so there were lots of great shots captured amid the flora and fauna of the park. We simply love this rustic shoot from Ten·2·Ten Photography and we hope you will too. Enjoy!
