Will Ferell Guest Stars in Engagement Photo

by Azure

How cute is this? This couple met while working as production assistants on a movie set. When they got engaged, they were working with Will Ferell, who made a guest appearance in both their engagement photo (published in the New York Times), and in their engagement video, also posted on the site. I like how they don't even seem to know that Will Ferell is standing behind them! To watch their video with Will's cameo, go to their NYT announcement. Helpful Links: Engagement Photo...

Featured Engagement Shoot from Ted Nghiem's Photography This engagement session took place in Baltimore, Maryland for Doug and Diana, both from Virginia Tech. Doug and I spoke back and forth about the engagement session, as the forecasters slated the day to have rain, but, thankfully it didn't start to rain til we were all done. These two were a real fun couple to work with, who couldn't work well with a lot of joking and laughter along with an occasional pose? Thanks for the good...

Featured Engagement Session: Bethany and Rick

by Azure

Special Feature by Kristen Tourtilotte of Kristen Marie Photography Bethany and Rick met at a bar a few years ago in Seattle and had an immediate connection. Rick’s a laid-back outdoorsy type, Bethany is more of a go-getter, but they make a perfect match. I love this engagement session because it shows their personalities so well, and also shows why they’re a great match.

This couple loves traveling and decided to go for the wedding...

Rock ‘n Roll Bride: Edgy Engagement Photo Shoot

by Azure

About Rock 'n Roll Bride Engagement sessions. You either hate them or love them. Personally, I started off in the first camp but since being sent a million and one fabulous ones I have to say my mind has now been changed. A good engagement session will bring out the personalities of the couple and will be as far away from mediocre as possible. Holley & Jason score highly with their session by The Nichols... the cars, the tattoo, the glasses, the bright red dress... this is right up...
