Utterly Engaged… Leather & Tweed

This awesome shoot in the newest issue of Utterly Engaged took its vision from New York Fashion Week. Combining new trends that popped up on the runway, a few of our favorite ladies created a perfect look for the altar. This rad team took leather, retro tweed, and sheer trends and portrayed how weddings can be memorable, beautiful, and stylish.

City Meets Safari Inspired Shoot…

This lovely shoot came together for Caroline Tran’s photography workshop, Propel. Caroline began the workshop to blend her passion for both photography and teaching. In the workshop, she mentors on topics like building a sustainable business and establishing your own aesthetic and style. This shoot created by Lucia of Utterly Engaged and Nancy of So Happi Together provided the perfect hands-on experience for Caroline’s workshop. The two were inspired by the wildlife at Saddlerock Ranch, mixing in safari themed graphics and florals. They wanted to create a laid back yet glamorous wedding with rich textures. They created a little story to go along with the shoot: “She’s a city girl, that has a big heart and love for Africa. He’s a southern gentlemen who loves big adventures. Consumed with love they eloped and married among their closest friends and family in an intimate celebration for twelve.” Just beautiful…
