plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

This fun couple thought a little outside the box. After backpacking through Europe, they decided they wanted to tie the knot there. But, before the big day, they hired Matt from One Tree Photography to take them out for an adventurous engagement session. Bikes, chalkboard, and water balloons. Yes, water balloons.

    LOVE this shoot, especially because it’s on my alma matter’s campus, and I got engaged in front of the campanile! That ‘love’ door is so popular – I love seeing it in engagement/wedding pictures!

  5. Love this session- the water balloons look so fun!

  6. […] We’ve heard of trashing your wedding dress, but trashing your engagement shoot is a new one even for us. Either way, this water balloon fight sure looks like a fun way to beat the summertime blues! (Landlocked Bride) […]
