Around here we love a good engagement story. In fact, sharing unique engagement sessions is one of our most favorite things. Every now and then we get a story that is truly unique, and in the case of Arun and Neha, we get to see that story unfold right before our eyes. Today’s Engagement Session shows us the proposal right as it was happening. In the midst of planning a getaway to Chicago with his future bride, Arun consulted with Willie Chandler Photography. His plan? To propose to Neha at a local bookstore and have his photog on-hand to document the entire thing. The beautiful images below show exactly how it all went down and the excitement in Neha’s face describes what a wonderful surprise it turned out to be. Congrats to the couple and kudos to Arun for having the foresight to plan and capture this moment in time, forever.

Spring is definitely all around us, but I couldn’t see any reason not to share one last winter inspiration shoot, especially one as lovely and detailed as this one. Shot by the talented Erin Johnson, and styled by Carly of Girl Friday (a wedding PR business), this post is packed full of so many great ideas. Here’s a bit more from Erin about the shoot, and it’s inspiration:
I asked Carly, from Girl Friday, to set-up an inspiration shoot. I told her I just wanted to show up and be suprised. Well, I was surprised alright! She called on some of our favorite people in our area…and pretty soon it was getting so big she split the shoot into two themes with two sets of models! This is the first theme. We’re calling it “eclectic hay loft wedding.” It’s inspired by Carly’s love of books, fonts, black and white stripes and her pug, Hank.
Beautiful bride in a fur stole and long flowing train.
