When I first started to schedule a camping-themed engagement inspiration session that I had been envisioning, I knew right from the start I wanted it to be a little less romantic and a little more editorial. I have been seriously CRAVING to do some editorial-type work lately. I reached out to some local talent from around the Northern Virginia area and set up a mini-styled engagement inspiration session!
Kelly looks SO much like Kourtney Kardashian that I literally felt like I was shooting a celebrity, and Tommy is a talented and upcoming model who stands at an incredible 6’8″ tall. These two were insane together and definitely brought so much of that attitude and fierceness that I was hoping for this session. I giggle every single time I explain it, but the look of this photoshoot that I was aiming for could best be explained as “sexy camping”. And sexy camping, it WAS! Kelly and Tommy totally brought it for me – I can’t get over them!
A HUGE shout-out to the amazing Allison Barlow and Simon Bechara for their time and talent with such an awesome job on hair and makeup. Thank you to everyone who helped make this session such a success — Kelly, Tommy, Allison, Simon, Dawn and Tiffany, and of course my husband Adam for assisting me all afternoon and evening. I couldn’t have done it without you all! <3
I seriously hope you guys enjoy one of my favorite sessions TO DATE!
