Real Love, Baby - Styled Engagement Inspiration

Kennedy and Zach are the realest of the reals.

They are creative, witty, and oh-so in love.

They are also very trusting.

Photographer Adam Williams of Adam & Dawn Photography and I wanted to create a beautiful, unique experience for a couple who have a love more beautiful than the perfectly pinned wedding inspo board. And we definitely wanted to contribute some beauty to your Pinterest boards (Go ahead! Pin away! These are amazing photos for inspiration!)

 Romantic, Organic Styled Engagement Shoot Designed by Unions With Celia and Adam and Dawn Photography at The Co-Op Venue in Missouri.

Having already planned an engagement shoot with Kennedy and Zach, Adam asked if they would be open to us styling their shoot and for it all to be a surprise!

If you’ve been following me for a week you know I LOVE SURPRISES!

They said, “yes!” And we are so glad they did! We put our heads together and partnered with stellar local vendors to create this magical real-life-styled-engagement shoot! (Say that 3x fast.)

The only aspect that wasn’t a surprise were the flowers. how could these beauties be kept a secret?!

Our goal was to create an organic and romantic environment for the couple to genuinely enjoy themselves and effortlessly laugh and dance.

What is more effortless and romantic than a yurt?

We partnered with The Co-op Venue to use their yurt and several elements from DG Stewart Design and Fabrication and Moon City Vintage to set the scene.

One of my favorite moments of the entire shoot was when Kennedy and Zach arrived. As they walked up the hill to the site, they heard Brian Bulger playing before they saw the stylized setting.

I could hear laughter, and I only imagined what was running through their minds. When they saw the yurt, with strung lights above, and flowers draped over the entrance to the tent their jaws dropped. It was the most romantic setting and moment. I could relive it over and over (If you want a surprise stylized setting for your engagement session, hit me up!).
