A cozy winter love shoot: Laura and Mike, March 2011

I am incredibly in love with today's post. Remember the awesome giveaway I hosted a couple weeks ago that involved a Canary Grey love shoot session to one lucky winner? Well, I couldn't have chosen a more deserving, adorable winner than Laura. She was over-the-moon excited to have won the giveaway and it is every blogger's dream to see a project like this from start to finish.

Wing of Canary Grey Photography and Laura connected right away and excitedly planned a cozy winter love shoot for the upcoming weekend. They wasted no time at all! Their vision was an outdoor, snowy shoot with a bonfire and a touch of chic (in the form of that cool, orange chair). Then they headed indoors to warm up with some coffee at their favorite spot.

Every last detail about this shoot is completely lovely. And I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I think you will, too. (I'm totally aware of the over-use of the word "love" in this post, but it is too perfect and I can't help it!)

Laura and Mike, could you two be any cuter???

Thanks to Laura and Wing for letting me share this gorgeous shoot!

A bonfire love shoot: Lacey and Jason

This bonfire love shoot is like a dream come true. It is cozy, sweet, warm, gorgeous.  Photographer Gina Zeidler is the genius behind these photos, she was inspired to create a beachy, bohemian bonfire style shoot with a Midwestern feel.  So she included plaids, a sunset on a lake, a blanket to snuggle under and of course s'mores.

I could go on and on about all the reasons why I adore these photos.  First, this shoot epitomizes fall.  It makes you want to fall in love or if you already are in love, give your sweetie a big bear hug.  It is a warm mug full of hot chocolate with marshmallows and whip cream on top.  It is pure perfection.

See for yourself, photo credits to Gina Zeidler.


Gina found props on etsy and craigslist including this awesome plaid couch for only $25!  Former client and model Lacey and her husband Jason were happy to be a part of this shoot.  Um, aren't they gorgeous?!


















Do you love this shoot as much as I do???  Do you want to see more?  Be sure to head over to Gina Zeidler's blog for part 1 and part 2 to check out more amazing photos!

Thanks so much to Gina for sharing this with us!

Love shoot: Thao and Triet

How gorgeous is this couple? I love this shoot because it's local (Minneapolis!) and the couple looks totally in love and like they are having a blast taking these photos. Plus, they are in Mexico right now getting married! I can't wait to see those wedding photos.

I've got weddings on my mind since my best friend Kristin is getting married on Saturday. I am the matron of honor and so excited to be a part of her day!

Love shoot: Kimber and Chas

I have a super sweet engagement shoot to share today sent by Melissa Oholendt Photography. Melissa just celebrated the one year anniversary of her photography business yesterday and I have a feeling there are many successful years to come.

This engagement sessions is sweet, soft and completely lovely.  A little about they couple; they met singing on a church praise team and decided to form a band together and fell in love. So sweet!  The shoot took place near Park City, Utah.

Isn't the lighting amazing??














This one is my favorite.  Which one is yours? 

Thanks to Melissa Oholendt Photography for sharing this shoot with us!
