When Perfectly Made Weddings asked me to do a Valentine’s Day inspired picnic styled engagement shoot to be featured on Bridal Hot List I was thrilled! I called on my team of artists that I have done many styled shoots with because they are fabulous and we always have a good time. I wanted a real couple in love for the shoot and Hope Stanley sent me some info about a couple named Josh & Jaquelynn and they looked like the sweetest couple. They are high school sweethearts and bonus, they are ENGAGED!
When Josh & Jaquelynn showed up we got them set up for hair & makeup with Sharon Han with Joyce Luck Style while Niloufar Gibson from Perfectly Made Weddings and I put together the set up. Sarah Toner from Floral Riot showed up with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and additional flowers to put in the little vases we had for the decor. They were perfect! Hope Stanley was not able to make it but she put together wonderful outfits and specific instructions for me and since I have worked with her many times so I knew what she wanted. You will see a beautiful headpiece in Jaquelynn’s hair that was supplied by Something Treasured. They have an Etsy shop with the most beautiful items for weddings!

Jaquelynn was so cute with the getting ready part! She didn’t want Josh to see her until she was done so I thought of the perfect idea of doing a “first look”. I had Josh go over to the picnic set up and hold the beautiful bouquet behind him and then I walked Jaquelynn over. I had them both close their eyes, get close and then open their eyes and see each other. Josh handed over the bouquet to Jaquelynn and she was so surprised and loved the flowers. It was a very special moment!
We all had a great time taking photos! I was very excited with the photos I was taking and Josh & Jaquelynn said they had a lot of fun and you can tell in the photos!
