Good morning blogettes! I'm finally back and I'm finally feeling better! It's snowing here in Virginia and I have a special snowday delivery for you: Laura & Brian's snowy engagement session at "Blue Moon Rising" in Maryland, photographed by Karlo Photography! I love that this shoot is local and if I'm being honest, the couple's golden retriever, Leo, frolicking in the snow and full of personality, had me at first glance! Did I mention there's snow?? Cozy up for a whole lotta cuteness, these three are adorable!
From Karlo, the photographer:
We wanted to do something outdoorsy and tossed around the idea of a snowboarding session on the slopes but the idea of being "bundled up" due to the cold weather didn't lend to intimacy. At the last minute, a friend of mine asked me to come take a tour of "Blue Moon Rising", an eco-tourism venture that was launching at Deep Creek Lake. This was the place. From their tiny cabins featuring re-purposed wood and materials, to their quiet nature trails, it was the perfect location. Brian & Laura brought along their 1 year old Golden Retriever, Leo, along for the shoot. I found the shoot to be casual yet close; sporty but soft. Laura & Brian are set to wed on May 25th, 2013 at Wisp Resort in Deep Creek Lake."
Don't these photos make you want to pack up and head to Blue Moon Rising for a winter weekend with your mate? It looks so secluded and rustic, and fun, and they're pet-friendly- I love that!
Special thanks to Laura and Brian for sharing their spectacular photos with us, and to Karlo for submitting them to Fit for a Bride!
I could not be happier about my partnership with Two Bright Lights, which allows me to bring REAL wedding photos to the blog! We've spent a lot of time focusing on the "fit" part of wedding planning, but let's face it: the wedding, the photos, the engagement- that's what a bride really wants to see! So stayed tuned for more =]
