Marie & Joe are adorable.
We sat down one day at Starbucks and brainstormed ideas for their engagement shoot, and all around, we agreed to incorporate a unique, fun theme: travel. I personally LOVE traveling, so when we came up with this idea, my wheels started turning ( ha! ). We started steering towards a transportation-themed shoot with a vintage love-story twist to it. What could be more romantic than packing up and taking off to see the world with your Love??
We decided to shoot at Concord Regional Airport, courtesy of Fly Carolina, and The Charlotte Trolley Museum. Afterwards, we headed down to the Carolina Soda Shoppe for some milkshakes and a banana split. YUM.
Marie collected some beautiful antique luggage and gorgeous dated-looking outfits for her and Joe to wear, and they even brought their trombones from high school band to throw into the mix! The other props used in their shoot were handmade by yours truly, with some help from the creative alley of Pinterest. The book-page flower bouquet and the coffee-stained love letters were easy to create and added a beautiful touch of whimsy and nostalgia to their session!
Marie & Joe, thank you both so much for a fabulous day! Enjoy your images; can’t wait for your big day in August! :- )
Check out my personal favorites from our wonderful afternoon together!
