love shoot #62: love is in the air {sascha & ivar}

Good morning gorgeous brides! I have a little question for you this morning… did you bite the bullet and propose to your man?  Because today’s lovely bride-to-be did just that!  Their engagement shoot, by wonderful Dutch photographer Anouschka Rokebrand, captures their love & excitement.  I love the way they used simple green and red touches in their outfits to coordinate without being too matchy-matchy (that’s a top tip for your couple shoot ladies!) and those little pops of colours really stand out in the images, echoing their vibrant, fun personalities.

We met about 4 years ago. I just started my job as a flight attendant and on board my first familiarization flight Ivar was the first officer. A bit of a cliche: flight attendant meets pilot. On our first date we found out we had a lot of common interests. We both love to travel and both have a passion for photography. After that date, the rest is history. It’s true: love is literally in the air!

It was a sunny day and we decided to take our bikes and have a picnic somewhere in the sun. We found the perfect spot in the sun near a lovely little church. When we sat there I felt so happy. There I was with the love of my life enjoying the sun and the sound of the birds. The moment felt so right that without any hesitation or preparation I proposed to Ivar. Flight attendant proposes, pilot says YES!

Isn’t the warm autumnal glow in these images just gorgeous?  Autumn is a great time of year for your couple shoot, the beautiful golden glow and crunch of the leaves, and of course the chill in the air is a great excuse to snuggle up to your loved one :)

We found a lovely restaurant and hotel nearby our home where we will get married, have dinner with all of our friends and family and afterwards we will spend the night there aswell. No worries and stress about transportation and different locations. We want to enjoy every single moment. We would like to have a day that reflects us as a couple, so lots of personal touches and DIY-projects ~ think airplanes and photos :)

I can’t wait to see their travel-themed wedding!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
