I think most of you probably know by now that I am a HUGE lover of camping and the big outdoors. Even when the weather is cold and miserable I will still pitch my tent, don my walking boots, grab my OS map and go and explore! Call me crazy but for some reason being outdoors always clears my head and leaves me feeling energized for whatever the day has left to throw at me.

So, with this in mind, when New Jersey based photojournalist Kella MacPhee asked if Festival Brides would feature an engagement shoot that involved her Suburban Camping Company that she runs with her husband, we jumped at the chance!

What better way, for a festival loving couple, to get some fun engagement pics than in their very own backyard in a ready made tent for two!?

Here’s what Kella had to say about the shoot and The Suburban Camping Company:

Monica & Jon shared their love for the outdoors and each other in a Suburban Camping Company Tent for 2! Our vintage style canvas tent was set up in their backyard for them to spend the evening along with all the essentials (and some non-essentials!) to ensure a comfortable night of camping.

Comfy linens, romantic books, a cooler full of drinks and a night under the stars……..what could be better!











A little bit more about what is offered from the Suburban Camping Company:

  • What happens in the tent stays in the tent!
  • Themed to create a memorable couple’s retreat, your backyard is outfitted with 1 tent, full size bed, linens, night stands and lighting!
  • Breakfast in bed is served the next day complete with fresh fruit, pastries and juice.
  • A super memorable and romantic way to spend an anniversary, honeymoon or any other special night.

I think this is a great idea for an engagement shoot especially if you are a couple, like Monica and Jon, who share a love for the big outdoors and camping.

If you like the sound of The Suburban Camping Company and live in the US then I strongly recommend a visit to their uber cool website for more information – you can have your own cinema set up in your back garden – love that idea!

They also offer hen do’s!

Many thanks to Kella for sharing your awesome shoot with us.

Until tomorrow……………………

Big Love
