This is one of the cutest darn engagement shoots I’ve seen. Vanessa and Calvin are so darling, they have awesome retro style, and I just love that you can tell how happy and in love they are from these photos. And Vanessa is a Snippet & Ink reader! Thank you so much to Sarah Rhoads for sending over these pics.

How awesome are these horn-rimmed glasses?

How awesome are these shots with the playing cards?

See lots more from this engagement shoot over on Sarah Rhoads’ blog.

    I love that they avoided irrelevant props and went with fun things to do. My fave shot is them reading the National Geographic magazines. Who doesn’t look through those and automatically want to show the person next to them what they’re looking at? And the shoes, omg, the shoes! I am e-mailing that pic to my husband.

    I’m a redhead, engaged to a redhead, and I have to admit this is the first time I’ve ever seen another “ginger” couple! They look so cute and comfortable together and the images are stunning.
