Travis and Amanda’s DIY Picnic Engagement Shoot

Can you tell that we’re just a tad bit excited over here for engagement season to get started all ready? We want to see your rings and engagement shoots and hear proposal stories! Since we’ll probably have to wait until at least next week, though, to get our fix how about an adorable DIY picnic engagement shoot by the very talented Perpixel Photography out of California?

The details in this shoot are amazing (can you imagine what their wedding will be like?) and were all hand-crafted by Travis’ sister-in-law, who’s an event planner and designer. She designed the set and made a ton of the props by hand – the soda labels, flags, records, she even handmade the dress!

The result? Engagement photos with a ton of personality and a couple that is very obviously in love…
