Happy Friday everyone, and what better way to toast the start of the weekend than with a dreamy and beautifully styled engagement shoot! You might have come across the talents of fashion stylist, blogger and bride to be, Nessa over at Life’s Lust Haves before, but if not, be sure to head on over there to get a fashion fix. She enlisted the help of the fab Magda Lukas to capture their fairytale at Ballyvolane House in Cork. Nessa shares a little bit about how it all came together!
Denis and I met whilst both studying in University College Cork over 7 years ago and have been together ever since. I am a fashion blogger and stylist with an obsession for weddings, events and all things pretty and so when I got engaged I decided I would organise my own shoot to celebrate the engagement and to create some really lovely pictures with my handsome man. I am usually the one behind the camera styling and directing shoots but this time I was the model.. I definitely prefer it behind the camera!!
As a stylist, I wanted to create a romantic story but also really show our playful side and our personalities in the shoot. I chose two totally different looks: a mixture of nice bright and fun colours and soft romantic tones.
It was such a fantastic experience and I would recommend doing an engagement shoot to any newly engaged couples. It was lovely to sit down together afterwards and pick our favourite shots and have a giggle over some of them.
Thanks so much for allowing me to share your love story Nessa and Dennis, I’ll be looking forward to seeing your beautiful wedding day!
