#WeddingWednesday | Engagement Shoots we love

Weddings are one of my favorite things and #WeddingWednesday makes it easier to share those drool-worthy wedding ideas around the web with you. Let's delve right into this one. 

Engagement shoots are not new. We've seen it all, or so we think but every time we try to get comfortable, another couple raises the bar with an underwater shoot, helicopter shoots, safari shoot, what have you. Despite all the noise and all the over-the-top shoots - some of which are actually nice and admirable - at Memkoh, we gravitate towards simplicity, good color coordination and well-executed out-of-the-box ideas. Don't get me wrong, if a client approaches me for an over-the-top shoot, OVER-THE-TOP it is! (Caps to emphasize how many levels of over-the-topness I can deliver). I take my clients very seriously.

However, from my personal point of view, Simplicity always wins. See for yourself below.

Wedding 1: Have you seen our Fall Lookbook? They nailed the use of olive green as their base color. Love it!

I think this second couple's look was for one of their marriage rites, but it makes a great engagement look regardless.

Fourth pre-wedding shoot we love was oh-so-simple, yet darling. I love the picnic vibe of their shoot and I equally admire the bride, @thediylady for her confidence despite what life threw at her. She turned it into a success story.

Our last one...hmmm. This wasn't really a wedding shoot but I'm pretty sure our most recent #MemkohxMemkohMen collaboration makes a pretty bomb pre-wedding photo session inspiration.
