Come Fly With Me

Dear Josh & Kristin,

When Karey first called me to tell me that you were looking for a photographer I was excited.  I would finally get to meet this “Josh & Kristin” that I had heard so much about.  I thought you must be OK if you were such good friends with Karey. 🙂  But I had no idea just how much I would like you both!

I loved talking with you guys about all of the places you’ve traveled together (Kristin, you’re smart to be marrying a pilot!  I gotta get me one of those 😉  And kudos, Josh, on your sweet proposal up in Oregon.  What girl doesn’t want to be whisked away to a beautiful place and have the man she loves ask her to marry him?

So when you guys told me about your idea for a vintage travel themed wedding, I swooned a little.  OK… a lot.  And when you told me you were thinking about doing a vintage themed engagement shoot… oh my gosh I think I fell in love a little bit.  I couldn’t wait to do your engagement shoot!

I’m in love with this shoot!  I love how there are so many stories that can be told from these photos.  I couldn’t believe that the guy at Planes of Fame let us do pretty much whatever we wanted!  Even getting in one!  The planes were amazing and it was fun to hear some of the history.  Kristin, I loved how you pulled together the whole look with the vintage suitcases and gloves and everything.  You are adorable!

Oooh, Kristin!  Look at those legs!  And Josh, you’re lookin’ pretty dapper in that uniform of yours.

Where you guys goin’?  Can you sneak me on the plane?

There’s something I love about the emotion in these.  It’s like you’re saying goodbye before a long trip.

I’ll get to the other half of our shoot in the next post. I just thought this part deserved a post all its own.

    I think this is my all time favorite shoot of yours! Epic, Jen, epic! I love the airplanes of course, the outfits, the poses. Seriously, I am sort of obsessed with them. Wowsers, you have to get this featured some where.
