I had the amazing privilege to photograph this gorgeous couple for their engagement session, not once, but twice! We actually broke their session into two sessions – you might remember this post from last week of our sunset beach session? For our first session, we actually headed to a Mercado to get some local flavor and colors in Baja California.

And did I mention the best part? Those cutie pie-love birds are my family! My handsome and smart brother Rey and his adorable and creative fiancé Gina are getting married towards the end of the year, and we are so excited for the big event!

Gina and I have been pinning ideas and texting back and forth with inspiration for this session, and when she went exploring her new neighborhood, found these adorable areas for us to incorporate during our session. We did a morning session at the local Mercado and had a blast! There were so many amazing little spots we found during our outing, we could’ve went on photographing for days!! The colors, the textures, the vibe – we loved it all!

Engagement Shaker Card & Video {Feeling Crafty}

Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // Engagement or Wedding Ring Shaker Card with how-to process video!

My baby brother proposed to his long-time girlfriend and I have been wanting to make them a card for too long! I knew I wanted to make a shaker card and after attending True Stamp this past weekend, I was absolutely inspired to get to my table and create! And on top of being inspired, I really wanted to just use what I had on hand (which is lots) and I made a little dent in my stash!

Kelly Marie Alvarez from Lawn Fawn (maker of adorable stamps!) made a super cute shaker card in her True Stamp class – I can’t wait to check out more of her videos! If you missed True Stamp, stay tuned… I’ll let you know when individual classes are available!

I hope you enjoy my card! I even made a video showing how I made it…
