Masquerade Engagement Photos

With today being Mardi Gras, this masquerade engagement session seemed pretty perfect to share. :) Imagine a beautiful girl getting ready for a masquerade ball. As she is on her way, she drops the invitation. A young man finds it and meets her there. They fall in love under the night sky with a glowing chandelier – without seeing each other. Until, possibly, the end!

A bit about the couple from Connection Photography“Susan + Mike (both from New Jersey) are getting married on July 13, 2013 in Nashville, Tennessee. Mike is a singer/song writer for a band called My Name is August and they are planning to move to Nashville in the Spring. Susan + Mike wanted to do something a bit more dramatic for their engagement photos. We discovered the wonderful masquerade masks in a small shop in rural Ohio, and immediately thought of them for a shoot with Susan + Mike. The masks have music notes on them, so we knew it would be perfect! The shoot took place in a beautiful cotton field in North Carolina – Susan and Mike had always wanted to see one in real life.”

Susan wanted to incorporate her mothers wedding dress (from the 80’s!) in their engagement session somehow, so they spiced it up a bit with a vintage belt.

Love that they did something totally different for their engagement photos!

Congrats Susan + Mike! We can’t wait for your wedding. :)
