Love in the Kitchen: A Baking Engagement Shoot
Hearts, butter, and a perfect little cherry pie: a recipe for a super-sweet engagement shoot! This lovely couple, Ashley and Colin, love to make delish dishes in the kitchen. Trent Bailey caught them playfully putting this pretty pie together one beautiful afternoon. Check them out, and our ideas for stocking your kitchen so you're ready for an impromptu baking adventure anytime.
Ashley and Colin started with making pie dough from scratch, then cut out heart shapes with this mini cookie cutter, and cored fresh cherries for their pie. Does everyone have this much fun in the kitchen?
After putting the finishing touches on the pie (including the adorable heart-shaped topping), the couple pops the pie in the oven and prepare to kick back with some coffee to go with their tasty sweets.
Lovebirds enjoying their sweets? Adorbs.
