Gabi + David = a breath a fresh air! Critsey Rowe hooked me up with Gabi + David for their rustic romance engagement session a couple weeks back. I had the pleasure of first meeting Gabi via the telephone for a lengthy conversation, we connected instantly. The couple lives and attends medical school in Tennessee and they will be tying the knot in the middle of May. Styling the couple was a bit of a challenge at first. For starters it’s not like I could throw on my skates, scoot over to their house to inventory their closet and then hop into the mall to finish their looks. We did make it work, and I couldn’t be HAPPIER with the outcome of these beautiful portraits.
Gabi, her adorable shoe loving mother, her sister, BFF from college and myself did connect at Southpark mall while Gabi was visiting her family over Easter. From there we were able to pull together this color bursting dress and shoes! We spent the moula on Gabi and she LITERALLY brought David’s closet to my condo the morning of the shoot. From there… the rest was history.
The morning of the shoot the adorable duo showed up for some makeup + hair and pull together the last minute details of their wardrobe. Gabi, 26 has the most angelic skin… not a wrinkle on her beautiful face………… I my friends, was jealous!! From there the three of us met Critsey Rowe on location for a fun engagement session!!
Take a look for yourself… fun and colorful, huh?!
I just love the lighting!!
The dress is from Anthro… the flower head pin, I made and the SHOES are OLD LADY shoes, I know right… can you believe it??? I can’t remember the brand for the life of me but they are the old lady walking shoes… the style and color were just PERFECT for the shoot!!! Iwould TOTALLY wear them!
Little LOVE birds… they are just TOO CUTE!
Those would be embroidered roosters on her dress… who knew!?
Nothing like a junk yard… I heart the colors!
The oranges were brought in to compliment her orange flower and orange shoes!!
And a trip to the local General Store…
