“Peter and I have always felt like we are old souls and we seem to gravitate towards vintage things, folk tales, and things from the past,” bride-to-be Mikayla tells us. For the couple’s engagement shoot, the pair wanted to tell the story of their love within a classic story of love. Which we love. Photographer Emily Kiel was right on board, setting the pair’s e-session in an empty Conroe lot—a suitably green stand-in for the classic Robin Hood tale’s Sherwood Forest. Etsy, Ebay and an antique shop served as sources for the vintage furniture, bow and arrows, and Mikayla’s pretty white dress. The bullseye target was homemade. As for the couple’s love, it is “classic and timeless,” says Mikayla, just like the story that inspired their romantic shoot. Happiest wishes to the winsome couple, and big thanks to Emily Kiel for the fine photos.
