Do-Si-Do to "I Do" With These Country Engagement Ideas

May 22 2014 - 1:54pm

Wherever you fall on the country scale — from rustic chic to gun-toting Western — putting a little cowboy charm in your engagement shoot can make for some romantic photos. There are numerous ways to incorporate horses, cowboy boots, old trucks, and hay bales in your eshoot, so I've picked some of my favorite shots to inspire your own country engagement shoot.

Wyatt and Brittany

Wyatt and Brittany are a country-Western couple who met at a rodeo event and fell in love long-distance. Their California engagement shoot reflects their love for all things country.

Severen and Caitlind

Severen and Caitlind are high school sweethearts who are tying the knot on July 18, 2015, at Caitlind's parents' farm. When the two took their engagement photos in the middle of the Alberta prairies in Canada, it was -30°C (-22°F)! The photographer, Justine Wowdzia, adds, "However, nothing could stop these two country lovers from climbing in the hay, riding around in Severen's pickup truck, and having a fabulously (freezing cold!) session."

Kalie and Andrew

Laura Radniecki shot Kalie and Andrew's engagement session in Minnesota ahead of their August 2014 wedding [14]. She notes, "They are the perfect blend of preppy and country. Not everyone can pull off an engagement session that blended such different styles, but Kalie and Andrew did it perfectly."

Amber and Julian

Amber and Julian's glam-country engagement session was shot at the mother-of-the-bride's ranch in Conroe, TX. The pair wanted their engagement shoot to have a modern country feel to it, and everything about it was handmade. Amber's mom made her dress, bedazzled her boots, and made her a bouquet using an heirloom pendant. They also used the family's antique furniture in the shoot.

Hillary and Bo

Heather Rice shot Hillary and Bo's Floridian engagement shoot in an old orange grove and the areas near their home. She shares, "Hillary and Bo are the quintessential outdoors couple. Bo loves all things hunting and fishing, and Hillary is ready to jump right in and go along with whatever adventures Bo has planned. They wanted their engagement session to showcase their love for old Florida and the beauty of the surrounding scenery near their home."
