A Lovely Engagement Session with a Blanket

I really love when you guys share your wedding and engagement photos – especially those of you that found inspiration from Green Wedding Shoes! Such is the case of today’s feature. Erin + Brent were inspired by my anniversary photos and used that general idea with lots of their own personality infused of course! I think they turned out so great – and I’ve also been hearing about their wedding plans and can’t wait to see how all their ideas turn it! Erin + Brent live in Missouri and flew out a few weekends ago to Cali for their photos. They will be having a backyard wedding in Missouri. :) This shoot was styled by the lovely Carissa of JL Designs and photographed by the equally sweet Carlie + Gabriel of Gabriel Ryan Photographers.
