Yesterday, we shared a sneak peek of Megan and Erik’s engagement session from WeddingWire’s FallBook 2013, but we forgot to mention that it’s on a farm. Days before Thanksgiving, the couple brought their theatre backgrounds center stage for F/stop Poetry. And a few props too — a blanket, their favorite coffee mugs, and of course, apples, since the prime picking time was in mid-September.

It’s official — we’re so proud to announce that our second e-magazine, WeddingWire’s FallBook 2013, is here! Although it’s mostly decor-focused, from cakes to centerpieces and bouquets to favors, we didn’t forget to add one-of-a-kind real weddings, engagement sessions, and styled shoot to inspire you. This week, we’ll be sharing bits and pieces of our favorite content, starting with these engagement session tips:
1. Schedule your shoot for the early morning or late afternoon, when the sunlight is most flattering.
2. Pick a seasonally-appropriate location. We love an apple orchard or pumpkin patch.
3. Bring several sweet props that suite both the location and style of the shoot. Even items as humble as cute coffee mugs, a favorite book, or colored balloons can be the perfect details.
4. Real smiles look better than fake grins. Laugh, talk, and don’t be afraid of a little PDA.
5. Choose a photographer who you feel comfortable with. Let him or her take the lead during the shoot.
6. Consider having a professional handle your hair and makeup. Use your shoot as a trail run for your wedding day hair and makeup artist.
7. Plan an activity to take the focus off the camera. Go on a stroll, have a picnic, or share some hot apple cider or cocoa.

It’s not only an engagement session, but also a “love shoot,” according to photographers Shaun and Skyla Walton. “A love shoot is a photographic session organized for the simple purpose of capturing and appreciating the authentic connection shared between a couple.” On a cold, rainy day amongst the forest trees, Audrey and Jeremy parked their signature Volkswagen blue bus, curled up on a blanket, and kept each other warm from their heartfelt embrace.
Now that Labor Day has come and gone, we can officially start sharing fall favorites! First up, Yaxin and David’s garden engagement session filled with props, including a vintage bicycle, bunting banner, balloons, and you guessed it — lots of leaves.
