Styled Florida Engagement Shoot

For this styled Florida engagement shoot, the designers leaned on the beloved style of real-life bride-to-be Tammie. They created an ethereal scene with earthy, whimsical, and organic décor that brought this outdoor session to a whole new level. Tammie’s father actually built the teepee for this shoot and it served as the perfect starting point.

The stylists brought in wicker furniture, lanterns, tons of candles, and an abundance of florals to soften the woodland setting and add a sense of romance to the shoot.

Unique votives, cut crystals, beaded pillows, and various pastel-colored flowers were a creative addition.

For a little variation to her first look, Tammie’s hair is styled in a gorgeous updo which serves her well throughout the next few shots.

Since it is an engagement shoot, the stylists add a little more sparkle to Tammie’s ring by placing it on top of a purple crystal.

Seated in a large wicker chair, Tammie is graced with a new look. She looks beautiful in a periwinkle gown complete with a V-neck, long sleeves, and a slit.

Sweet additions to the shoot are the small heart-shaped cookies brushed with a watercolor effect.

Tammie’s hair mirrors the look of her dress with the inclusion of a periwinkle ribbon woven throughout her updo. It’s an unexpected and surprising detail as she turns her back to the lens.

This styled shoot allowed Tammie to show off her personality with a peaceful bohemian-inspired vibe shared with the man who makes her feel like a princess. These two turned the Florida woods into a magical wonderland for two.
