Ohhh, guys...I need to whine real quick, because I am so tired! I got back from California on Tuesday night, and then I was up all night working on the blog (I've gotten pretty behind on my posts with all the traveling). Yesterday, I spent all day training for a new editing job that I'll be doing from home for some extra money. So busy, I barely had time to pee! Man, I am tired. I just woke up a couple of hours ago to send Dale off to Michigan for the long weekend, and I already need a nap! The good news is that with the exception of a lengthy to-do list that I need to catch up on at home, the rest of my weekend will be pretty low key.
No matter how exhausted that I get though, you know I just can't miss a post! ;) I have a super cool engagement shoot by Caryn of The Bird & The Bear to share with you all today! You may recognize Caryn's work from this luminescent beach family engagement session that I featured here last September (which is definitely check out, by the way). After seeing this engagement shoot that I'm sharing today, I am sure you'll agree with me that everything this girl touches turns to magic. Really. I just love the gorgeous light, and the easy, low key style that Caryn injects into all of her photos.
According to Caryn, Niki and Bill are "two of the cutest people I've ever met," and they wanted something relaxed and fun that "showed off their hip, indie-loving personalities." Well, mission accomplished, because "hip" and "indie" is exactly what came to mind when I first saw this engagement session! For all of you ladies and gents out there who recently ventured out west for the Coachella music festival this past weekend, I'm sure you can appreciate this couple's personal style. There's a super cool without-trying-too-hard boho kind of feel to it. They're in Texas, but I could totally see this couple on Venice Beach in the middle of summer.
Although it was pretty chilly outside while shooting in that open field down south, you'd never know it, because this duo wanted it to feel like summer in their shorts and sandals! With colorful balloons, a yellow bicycle, a vintage couch and a really cool old, busted up piano, Niki and Bill's engagement photos are made all-the-more fun after watching their engagement announcement video, included below. This video was also shot by The Bird & The Bear (Formerly Love Caryn Photography).
