Love the pop of colour in this engagement session by PITINADA PHOTOGRAPHY. Held at Blackburn Lake Sanctuary in Melbourne it has the beautiful Australian bush as a neutral backdrop.
Happy July 4th to all my US readers… I hope you all have a lovely summery weekend planned with your favourite people! I’m looking forward to a taste of summer for a week when I head to Paris in two weeks… although I could do without the crazy heatwave temperatures I’ve been seeing! Yikes… going from winter to that might be a shock to my system! Todays lovely shoot was inspired by the natural stonework of CHEROKEE CASTLE – a 1900’s Colorado estate. Photographer ASHLEY SAWTELLE and her team of vendors created a warm palette of caramels and champagne with hints of deep colour. A beautiful vintage robe from GOSSAMER tied in to the history of the location, while LIZ WEGRZYN the hair and makeup artist, created an updated look with loose hair and a natural, dewy complexion. The look was rounded out with some stunning florals with buttery yellow roses by PARK FLORAL DESIGN.

JULIE CAHILL recently worked with Judy of JU. LEE CHIC who has designed a beautiful line of vintage inspired gowns full of lace and tulle. Incorporating subtle details like a metallic rose gold underlay and gold threading throughout her dress designs, they are a picture of grace against the rugged coastline and blue waters at Asilomar Beach in California. THE BONNY DOON GARDEN COMPANY crafted a gorgeous bouquet full of textures in shades of blue which is something we don’t often see. With the stunning cove of turquoise waters and soft skies above, stylist Eileen of E EVENTS CO. kept the design simple and airy with draped fabric and sea glass to accent the vintage blue couch. Make-up artist KELLY JONES created soft hair and a natural look for the models with a stained lip and shades of copper and mauve to finish the look. The entire shoot simply exudes femininity.
