plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country


Ampersands, signs and banners, oh my! Engagement photo props seem to be showing up everywhere these days. They are a fun, simple, creative way to add a personalized touch to any engagement photo session.  Not only can props be used to display a wedding date for those ‘save the date’ cards, they can also be an amazing way to showcase the personalities and interests of a couple. Engagement photos are no longer just about picking the right outfit, they are photos to document your journey together. There is no better way to showcase this journey then by doing what you love, revisiting a place that you love or taking photos with the things you love.

    This is a great roundup and it just gave me an idea for a wedding that I am working on for next June. It’s in Minnesota at a barn and I want to incorporate fun games that are carnival like…the first picture did it! A ring toss has been added to the list! XO
