This engagement shoot styled by Pam Terpstra of Romancing the Stone is the ultimate in forest whimsy. Throw in one gorgeous red cape, and you’ve got serious Little Red Riding Hood style! Thanks to photographer Rebecca Hollis for these amazing images. The engaged couple, Tony and Tony and Makenzie, were on board with her vision and ran with it. The result is magical.

From the stylist, Pam Terpstra: About 6 months ago I happened to rent the movie Little Red Riding Hood starring Amanda Segfreid. I loved the romanticism, the drama, and the desire she had to be with the one she really loved. It had all the elements of suspense, hold your breath passion, and that cape, OH that cape! I imagined it could be photographed on the top of the world in a stone building. On top of Mount Spokane State Park outside of Spokane, Washington is such a place. The Vista House became Little Red’s residence. I wanted to inspire brides to be themselves and have fun and imagination with their engagement photos. Tony and Makenzie are outdoor enthusiasts and Mt. Spokane is befitting their style. They were totally at home with this engagement shoot as Mt. Spokane is a ski hill in the winter and this is where they met. A love of food is also a passion for them and in keeping with their pastime we set a table befitting Little Red and her fiancé, celebrating their upcoming nuptials. Passion, food, and the literal word RED is what brings this engagement shoot to life.

    Thanks ever so much to ruffled blog for featuring our shoot! As the stylists for this shoot I wanted to answer the questions about the cake. Yes it is literally candy bars lining the sides of the cake. It was amazing and the bakery who made it was Sweet Dreams Bakery in Spokane, WA. You can contact them through their facebok page and their link on the credits. The pictures of the plated food is not the cake but steaks from Simply Gourmet Catering in Spokane, WA as well. Thank-you for all the lovely comments.

  • Emily Heizer Photography on December 13, 2011

    I really like the cake. Are those literally candy bar bottoms lining the sides of each tier, or slivers of chocolate or what is that? I would love to see more close ups of that cake...
