Meeting with Ellie & Scott for the first time was like meeting with old friends. We hit it off right away as we talked about both being high school sweethearts, the love of cooking, and recently trying the Paleo lifestyle. Paleo whaaat?! If you haven’t heard of eating in this way, google it, it’s a real way of eating that involves eating basically what can be found in nature as it is. Think lots of grass-fed meats, fresh veggies & fruits, and nuts. I told Ellie & Scott how we were giving it a try and they said they also had ‘went Paleo’ for a period of time, too cool! We both agreed it’s super hard to stick to at times, ( Sometimes you juuust want some pizza! Can I find that on a tree?!) but we agreed it was worth it for the energy boost and just feeling healthier.
Then Ellie shared with me her love of baking and I was totally sold. 😀 They decided to have part of their engagement shoot baking cookies in her adorable home followed by a picnic at a nearby park. I asked to share the amazing chocolate chip recipe, but Ellie has been sworn to secrecy by her cousin who formulated it. True story! A very good alternative though is a classic recipe that I’ve often used, the Nestle Toll House recipe, it can be found here on my Pinterest.
Ellie & Scott really made this shoot their own by sharing with me what’s special to them, my favorite! I’m super excited to see what’s in store for their fall wedding later this year. 🙂
Thank you so much to Style Me Pretty for featuring this adorable session!
That sweet twinkle in Ellie’s eye. <3
