There is something about the crisp fall air and turning leaves that makes us daydream about rustic weddings. So this rustic engagement shoot from Marie of Marie Skerl Photography was exactly what we wanted to look at all morning with a cup of coffee in hand. Speaking of coffee, how cute is it that Maia and Mark grabbed a cup of coffee at Starbucks during their engagement session!? We think more couples should consider stopping for a Pumpkin Spice Latte in between all the kissing and holding hands that an engagement session requires! We hope you enjoy these autumn-drenched photos – they are the best inspiration for welcoming the coziest of seasons.

Maia and Mark wanted to incorporate some of the things that matter most to them as a couple in their engagement session. With a love for Starbucks and rustic farms, it only made sense to include both of these locations! Most of their engagement photos were taken at a beautiful site in Surrey owned by A Rocha, a farm style conservation organization that Maia used to work for. A big yellow barn, an open field, and even a llama set the scene for this sweet couple who look happily in love in every shot.

Choosing what to wear to an engagement session can be so difficult, but Maia put together a charming outfit that fits perfectly with the rustic outdoor setting. She is wearing 2 of our favorite timeless trends: mustard yellow and lace. And a rustic ensemble would not be complete without fall boots! We also love how she coordinated the colors with Mark’s outfit without it being matchy-matchy (see how the yellow in her cardigan ties in with his plaid shirt?)

Congratulations to both Maia and Mark on your engagement as well as a big thank you to Marie Skerl for sharing your beautiful photographs with us.


We want to know, how does the rustic style of autumn inspire you?
