Carnival Engagement Photos

It’s engagement photo time and I’ve been receivng lots and lots of engagement submissions! I thought I’d take today and share some of my recent faves. :) Let’s start off with this cute engagement session of Chris + Ian at the Ohio Fair from Christa Kimble. What better place to take some photos of you both having some fun at the fair – and lots of bright colors too!

Anyone else planning their engagement photos at the fair this summer?

  1. Ohhh these are sooo cool! The angled shot of them on the swings I have seen and wondered who did it. It’s been a favorite for a couple of anonymously credited months!

  2. My Fiancee and I are! Kinda bummed its not so “original” now.

  3. I love this gorgeous session! She made the photographs look how a date feels- like you are the only ones there, even in a huge crowd of people. Beautiful work Christa!

  4. Love the one on the swings, very dream like!

  5. LOVE this session. Love the cotton candy mustache. So much fun.

  6. Fantastic photos! Love the vintage feel to them. I think carousels make for the coolest pictures! Such a neat idea.

  7. These are so lovely! What a fun session. Even if it isn’t a completely unique location, it is still an awesome, fun and beautiful one. I’d love to shoot a carnival engagement session!

  8. I love it I love it! I love the colors of the photos, the spontanity, returning a little walk with infacia carossel! Very good!

  10. Such a fun engagement session!

  11. Beautiful Beautiful Photos! I love them so much!!! They feel timeless.

  12. These are awesome.

    People, there is nothing new (original) under the sun. If you want to do a carnival shoot, do it in a different way.
