Hey! Another beautiful engagement for another beautiful couple! Brooke and Russell met in high school so it was important to have some of their engagement photos done there. As their story goes, Russell sat in class behind her seat for an entire semester until he finally had the courage to speak to her. But, what followed was a relationship that blossomed until the day Brooke was getting ready to leave for work. She noticed something new (and sparkly) in her jewelry box. Barely able to get a word out, she turns around and sees her high school sweetheart… down on one knee. Simple, sweet, sincere. So, there was only one answer.
Hearing all this, I couldn’t be more excited to work with them! They’re such a sweet and easy going couple. And soon, we got to talking about pictures.
As a photographer and a pilot, I’ve always obsessed about shooting an engagement session at an airport. And how lucky am I that I was given the opportunity to shoot two aviation-themed engagements that are also completely unique from each other? Brooke and I sat down for our initial consult and towards the end we started brainstorming about their e-session. Russell, being in the aviation industry, had access to corporate jets. So we started throwing words around, “business jet, luxury travel, sophistication…” and boom, boom, boom. I kid you not, these awesome images started flashing in my head!
We made it happen! Brooke and Russell were sooo good in front of the camera! They were up for anything and everything; and most of the time we were laughing and cracking jokes. And after a long and exciting shoot… here you go: a very classy, sophisticated, bold, and sexy engagement session. Enjoy!
