I met Mendy and Justin through common friends few months ago at a baby shower. Not long thereafter, we were discussing the details of their wedding and planning to photograph their engagement session. When Mendy told me that she planned to go with a retro style for her wedding, I knew that I just HAD to shoot it!!
We decided to bring this theme into their engagement session as well. Justin is an auto technician, and was hoping that we could work in a vintage model car into the shoot. I knew of the perfect location, and we scheduled the shoot.
On the day of the session, Mendy and Justin arrived and just looked fantastic! Plus Mendy brought a few vintage pieces of luggage as props. I’m a sucker for symbolism, and I really like how the car and the luggage represents the journey these two are embarking on with each other. Additionally reaching back in time with the location, props and clothing speaks to the timelessness of their love for one another.
As I write this post, I am preparing to shoot Mendy and Justin’s wedding the next day!! It’s going to be a beautiful wedding and I can’t wait to freeze time for these two wonderful people!
