Moody + Masked: Halloween-Worthy Engagement Session in the Woods

Halloween Engagement Inspiration

Are you getting in the Halloween spirit? The team at GWS sure is… With all the creative editorials we’ve seen, especially ones that lend themselves to the darker + moodier side of things, we can’t help it! Today’s styled shoot is for those that want to highlight those moodier feelings and perhaps even those that wish it were Halloween all year long!

Taking us into the woods of Julington Creek Preserve, photographer Courtney of Fonda Foto + Film captures a spooky, yet romantic love story for the ages… Complete with skull-inspired masks, brilliantly wild florals, and ethereal smoke, we couldn’t imagine a more perfect setting for an October engagement session.

Prepared to be spooked…

Replete with gorgeous silk ribbons, this is one stunning bouquet brimming with berries and peachy pink stems by Marble + Pine. We’re particularly fond of the way the lighter tones contrast against the dark shadows of the day’s palette.

As for the dress, what could be more fitting than an all black ensemble from ASOS?
