Marshmallow wonderland engagement session ~ Alissa Saylor Photography

Apr 04, 2013 | Engagements
If you're feeling a little peckish right now it's probably not best to look at endless images of S'mores, marshmallows, milk and chocolate! We have a fun, styled engagement shoot from the lovely Alissa Saylor Photography today. It's everything I love from an engagement shoot - DIY aspects (S'mores anyone?), succulents, a picnic blanket and a pom pom backdrop to finish it off. From Alissa ~ "Carli and Josh both work at Vanderbilt Hospital on opposite shifts so when I asked them what their favorite things to do together were, it became very apparent that they didn't care WHAT they were doing as long as they were together! So we talked a little more about different activities they enjoy when roasting marshmallows came up… huge smiles spread across both their faces and I knew that we had to go with it! I contacted Elizabeth Ulrich of Stockroom Vintage to help me create a "marshmallow wonderland" and that is what she did!" alissasaylorphotography (1 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (2 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (8 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography duo2 Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (9 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography duo1 Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (15 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography duo3 Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (24 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography duo4 Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (26 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography duo5 Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (32 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (35 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (39 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography duo6 Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (45 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (48 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (50 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography duo7 Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography alissasaylorphotography (56 of 57) Photography ~ Alissa Saylor Photography A huge thanks to Alissa for featuring this cute engagement session! Such a fun way to announce an engagement and I bet they had plenty of images to choose from if they needed to use them in their wedding stationery too! Anyone else thinking of a 'themed' engagement session or are you sticking to just photos of you and your partner? I'd love to know as I think it is a really divided opinion on whether they can be too contrived or not. I take the stance of having props that can help you interact and be more natural in what can seem an unnatural situation. Mr Sparrow and I had a picnic for ours and it really helped us relaxed as we had something else to focus on other than the camera. What do you think?
