Yes, a Harry Potter Styled Engagement Session

I feel like this should go without saying but, I am obsessed with Harry Potter. In my quest to show couples out there that you can pair a bit of geek with a lot of class, I conceived this Harry Potter styled engagement session. I paired with Lauren from Toast from the Host, who made my ideas come to life in the coolest of ways!

The Details

The save the dates couldn’t have been more perfect–I know the catcher/keeper verbiage is seen a lot, but paired with hand written calligraphy breathes new life into it. In fact everything is hand drawn, including the snitch! Megan from Megan Marie Calligraphy is insanely talented, I can’t even draw stick figures and she is making my Harry Potter dreams come true! And yes, the paper is ripped artistically and fringed in gold.

Next, because I am obsessed with macrons, those needed to be included. Wink by Erica put some metallic illustrations on the macrons and they instantly became Harry Potter-esque but in a cool, classy way. To not be too overt, colors other than the four houses were used. I wanted to keep it more neutral. Paired with metallic paint, they look magical! *wink*

Of course, for the images of these items together, I paired them with my own personal Harry Potter wands. One of them is Neville Longbottom’s and the other is Dumbledore’s I think. In another few images I made it a bit more feminine by pairing them with gorgeous necklaces made by A. Tak Crafts.

Lastly, signs were made to add some fun to the couple pictures. I love the one that says “Mutual Weirdness Forever”. Although I think loving Harry Potter is not weird at all, and incorporating that into your wedding is normal. Ha ha! I love that For Love and Lettering used metallic pens mixed with white on glass–it’s not your typical engagement session!

The Session

Set at The Grand Texana, I fell in love with their reception hall. It is part of this huge barn structure and has a ton of natural light flooding it. There are white string lights hanging around the room and the inside of the barn is a mix of white washed wood and natural brown wood.

I had the couple do some romantic poses, but I wanted to let them play and have fun, which you can see they did! Ashley and Zak were awesome models, they danced, had wand fights and kissed with abandon. To me this is the perfect illustration of when classy meets a bit of nerd. The outfits are more traditional/dressy and props were brought in to spice it up.
