Arielle & Chris - Styled for Engagement Shoot

I had the recent pleasure of meeting Arielle and Chris - an engaged couple tying the knot this September. They are getting married in a vineyard in California, and Gina Meola gets to be their photographer. Talk about a dream wedding!?! So, of course, they had an engagement shoot with Gina lined up too, and I got to help them pick out their outfits for it. I LOVE my job!

Chris has a very classic, simple style. His favorite store is J. Crew, and that's pretty much all he shops. Arielle also likes classic, feminine pieces, but there is a bit of a whimsy quality she likes to throw in.

We arrived on two looks both staying to true to their style while channeling some east coast sophistication. Gina made a perfect choice of location and photographed the couple in Heritage Square - one of the only places in Phoenix that doesn't look like it's in the middle of the southwest.

Pretty much everything was found in their closet except the navy and white striped dressΒ (found at Ann Taylor LOFT) Arielle is wearing and the gray v-neck sweater (H&M) Chris is wearing. Talk about economical photo style?!

I hope you think this couple is as cute as I do. Click here to see more photos on Gina's blog.
