Picnic Engagement Session

This past weekend’s delicious weather had me thinking about picnics…which led to thoughts of a picnic engagement session, of course! (what do you mean this doesn’t happen to you too?) A little searching led me to this adorable post on Ruffled Blog, featuring a vintage picnic session.

The classic look of their shoot, complete with the signature red and white checkered blanket, is simply adorable. In keeping with the yummy picnic theme, I set out to create a look for a more modern picnic:

First you’ll want to pick a great, bold patterned blanket or tablecloth. Then select a coordinating dress in an easy silhouette, pick up a few darling accessories and you’re ready to go.

Dress your fiance in something equally laid back, hand him this awesome modern picnic tote, and voila! You’ve got yourself a perfectly cool picnic engagement session.
