Here’s a fun engagement shoot taken here in Austin shot by the talented husband and wife photo team, The Nichols. Holley and Jason wanted to take some pictures in a local record store, since music is a big part of their lives. They had also noticed a car junkyard one day, and thought it would make for some fun images. I think they’re all pretty fun!

Congratulations Holley and Jason! You can see their wedding pics over on The Nichols’ blog. And of course, thank you to Jennifer and CJ Nichols for sending over these fun photos.

While I understand why a couple might want to have engagement photos for themselves, I had never seen any that really stood out to me (though I do love this idea). At least not until Samuel Lippke emailed me with these photos from Heather and Eric’s gorgeous engagement shoot.┬áHeather is an assistant for Trina Turk, and Eric is a painter, art curator, and DJ. Before their engagement shoot, Samuel spoke with them and suggested doing something a little different – something unique and artistic that reflected who they are. The spring shoot took place at their friends’ ranch in Fallbrook, California. Items such as an antique dress, a parasol and a tripod helped to create a timeless story of a couple in love.

A huge thank you to Samuel Lippke for sending these photos to me, and congratulations to Heather and Eric! Maybe we’ll get to see some photos from your recent wedding…

On a personal note, as I was in the middle of getting this post ready, my dear sweet friend Elizabeth called me to share her good news – she’s engaged! Congratulations Elizabeth – I love you and could not be happier!
