Travel Inspired Fall Engagement Shoot

They had me at the orange scarf!! Such a simple accessory but it adds so much to the images with that pop of colour! I'm delighted to be sharing these photos of long time reader (and my best commenter!!) Steph and her fiance Robin. Inspired by their love of vintage and travelling, they had a fun engagement session with Jessica Higueras at Cornwall Park.
I mentioned on the blog a few weeks back with this post, that doing a pre-wedding shoot is a great way to break the ice with your photographer and become a bit more comfortable with the process before the all important big day. Especially so for our gentlemen folk who are often more eager to head back to the frivolities than pose for the camera (not talking about anyone specific of course Mr "surely we have enough photos of me posing in the field, what's the quickest way back to the party" H!!)

Steph and Robin are heading to France in a few weeks for part one of their wedding celebration before a summer ceremony here. Head over to Steph's own blog where she documents her wedding planning and some other fun projects she's working on. A big thanks to Jessica for allowing us to share her beautiful work here.

I sigh as this reminds me of the coming of the fall and the ending of the summer. The silver lining: bicycle rides through the park and fall leaves. Lovely post indeed!

Gorgeous photos! What a perfect Autumn feel...& I love love love Robin's jacket - where can I get one of those???


Steph {Bubblerock} said...

@Kobe - the jacket was hired from First Scene in Auckland. I also thought it was perfect. He didn't feel too comfortable in it, thinking it wasn't really him but I think it gave that old-school feel to this part of our shoot.

@Kate - the orange scarf was knitted by my mum a while back. I love it so bad! And it is true it brought a unique element to the photos!
And Jessica just knew how to capture that!
