love shoot: up, up and away {maria & dean}

A cute little engagement shoot from Terri at Summer Lily Studio to share this morning. Maria and Dean wanted a relaxed and intimate session to celebrate their love, and included pretty pink balloons (and their adorable little puppy!) to add a subtle theme to their photo’s.  Including simple props is a great way to help you relax in front of the camera (especially if you’re nervous about having your photo taken!) giving you something else to focus on, creating more natural shots and of course also looking pretty!  It definitely worked for Maria & Dean, they look fabulous and without a care in the world!

Here’s photographer Terri with their story ~

Maria and Dean had been together about 18 months before ! She contacted me for an engagement shoot and we spent a couple of weeks going through ideas and Maria decided that she wanted a relaxed session, with some natural shots but a few props to put them at ease, make them laugh and help them interact in front of the camera. They also decided to bring along their new puppy Chico to the shoot who was totally adorable!

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.
