erica + jacob | WINTER MOUNTAINTOP SESSION

So lucky to have had the most wonderful community come¬†together for this little pet project of mine. In the middle of wedding season (a classic joke – “it’s ALWAYS wedding season”), my good friend Jennifer and I decided we wanted to get together and practice our portraits. Well, Jennifer wanted to practice her portraits. I just wanted to hang out with Jennifer – ha! We dreamed big, then bigger, then pulled together a mood board of berry hues and mountain scenery. We shared our thoughts with our networks and somehow wound up working¬†together with a multi-talented design team of creatives and makers, all in pursuit of our #wintermountaintop dreams.. check out the amazing heart and love that went into all the details with the vendor credits at the end of this post!

Along the way, we also picked up our session giveaway contest winners, Erica and Jacob, a real-life married couple from Tennessee, who dropped everything to make the trek down. They fit their roles in our session perfectly and brought the magic!

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy, and make sure to stick around to the end to peep Theory Y Design’s incredible video of our styled engagement session.
