I know I am so behind in my blogging -- considering I am just posting this Valentine's Day photoshoot!!

We were so excited when Erin McLean ( called us to ask if we would be a part of her vintage valentine's day inspired photoshoot. The shoot was at the super cool Stock Room in downtown Raleigh! I loved all the details that Erin brought to the shoot from the candy buffet, to the LOVE mugs, and the vintage mirror complete with heart!! I also am completely obsessed with the linen that she picked from CE Rental in Raleigh - I want to wear it :)

We also got to work with the very talent Kevin Milz ( I love the way he made all the images have that very vintage color and feel :) Below is a collage of images from the day that he put together!

The shoot was also picked up by a couple of other blogs - be sure to check them out!

Thanks to Erin and Kevin - we had such a great time with you all :)

ps - the dress was from Tre Bella Bridal and is a beautiful lace beaded gown by San Patrick!! - Love it ;)
