This August was the very first time we were able to do something on our bucket list, yep you guessed it, a romantic summer picnic inspired styled photoshoot! I met the wonderful girls from Kristina Staal Photography and Shaina Lee Photography mid-summer and we totally hit it off so it was only natural that we wanted to work together. Immediately! Kristina had a couple lined up to do their engagement photos so we schemed, asked the couple lots of questions, and ultimately settled on this romantic vintage-y picnic!
The couple are temporary transplants to the Northeast, so I wanted to blend their current coastal Connecticut home with their laid-back mid-west style. They have two adorable pups (a girl and a boy) that we included so the puppy-friendly picnic felt like a perfect family-affair and to enjoy the last days of summer. The flowing dresses and soft color palette kept it feeling light and airy. The bride-to-be has a collection of vintage cameras and is an aspiring photographer, so naturally I had to include vintage treasures while keeping enough masculinity for the guys and subtle hints of femininity for the ladies!
