Brian and Rhiannon… cheers! by Eva Derrick

A great photographer will be able to capture the authentic connection between a couple! To create an environment that is relaxed is the first step to allowing the couple to be comfortable. Swish List member Eva Derrick sent in this sweet engagement session-the couple planned a date and Eva followed along creating some beautiful images.

'Rhiannon and Brian really wanted to keep the session casual and about their interactions together so we met at Block 3 Brewery in a little town near kitchener.  We stopped for a few pictures at the park where they had their second date in guelph and took advantage of the sunset. When Brian had proposed to Rhiannon he bought a collection of kerosine lanterns in which he lit a pathway to walk her to the spot where he popped the questions, so of course we took advantage of their light to provide us addition warmth and light.'

You're engaged!  And after you've chosen the photographer for your wedding day, you'll start to make plans for your engagement shoot! The engagement shoot can be as simple as having a few nice portraits done or your session can be more of a reflection of who you are as a couple.  You may choose to create an experience for your photographer to capture.  Stick with us this week as we inspire you with a few ideas for your engagement photos!  

Thank you Andie Freeman Photography for sending in this sweet engagement session with Jessica and Andrew. The couple wanted their personalities to come through in the pictures-so they chose a location where picnics are always beautiful-at a horse farm! Jessica and Andrew met at university and learned soon after that they were both avid readers and each have a favourite book series! Not only do they have pictures that will fit in with the decor of their wedding... but they have a great memory of their engagement session which seems to be the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon! Here are a few favourites from their session...

Wedding Trend: Deconstructed Head Tables!

Gone are the days of setting your head table and wedding party into a long single file row! Today’s brides and grooms are opting to ditch that 80's setup and go for something a little less formal, a little more relaxed and a lot more fun!

Here our friends from Gala Decor chose to create an easy, almost 'lounge-like' setup, where the wedding party is seated at a pair of round tables, which flank the raised center ‘sweetheart table’, reserved for the bride and groom. The wedding party now has a chance to sit facing each other, which makes for easier conversation and helps them to feel like they are a part of the wedding and not just “on display”.

The overall look is a stunning and fresh way for the newly wed couple to truly enjoy the time spent with their wedding guests during the reception and encourages a sense of informalness without being overly trendy!

Outdoor Wedding Movie Night by Amanda Cowley Sweet Events

Nothing says summer quite like the perfect night, an ice cold beer, a good movie and some even better friends! So, when it came time to for this couple to view their wedding film, they invited thirty of their closest friends and family to them for an outdoor movie night!

Taking place on a perfect summer evening in August in the barn of a two hundred year old farm, the night was perfect with a cocktail reception in the peach orchard and a cozy viewing of the couple's wedding film as captured by Nataschia Wielink Photo + Cinema!

Serving locally made craft beer, freshly popped popcorn, classic concession chocolate bar choices and deliciously sticky candy apples, guests enjoyed the prettiest atmosphere of summer harvest flowers.

Designed and planned by Amanda Cowley Sweet Events, this amazing night was created and captured by a super-team of uber talented and creative wedding vendors including vintage rentals by The Warehouse, florals by My Bouquet and linens by Simply Beautiful Decor.
