Amber and Josh are planning a big Southern-style BBQ wedding so when they began talking to their photographer, Stephanie at Stephanie Smith Photography, they knew they wanted to create a Southern-style shoot for a consistent look throughout their engagement photos. The effect is warm, down-to-earth and very fun (I can imagine their wedding is going to be quite the party).

And they didn't need many props - the gorgeous sunlight and willow trees created their own dramatic backdrop - but for the ones they did use, Amber and Stephanie hunted them down at local antique shops and garage sales (a great tip if you want to get your hand in planning your own shoot). And I've gotta say, I'm so glad they did; that strawberry shortcake series is absolutely delightful, isn't it?
