vintage engagement session

March 24th, 2010

Why so many photo shoots in such a short time? You’ll find out why in a very near future blog. This one was a lot of fun, a lot of work, and a ton of man hours to make it happen. I was inspired by other photo shoots and took elements from each to make it my own. With the help of my bridesmaid, Anh, we’ve been exploring and working on it on/off for the last 3 months. There wasn’t enough time as planned on that very day, but I think with what was given it turned out pretty great. It was an invaluable learning experience for future shoots that I hope to do for friends and future clients. All the photos shown in this post are shot by Duy; will share Benedick David’s once they are complete. Will also have another post of behind the scenes.

I got that white dress for only $4!

Like the green boots? They’re from Anh’s personal collection.

Robert’s 3 piece suit is Alfani slim fit.

I LOVE this shot of us.

The last shoot was all about me. Now it’s Rob’s turn to shine.

You have to agree that Rob definitely belongs to this club. The wording on this sign was decided on hours before the shoot. It was either that or GTL. This seemed more fitting and an idea from a Jimmy Kimmel skit. We will definitely be using it on the wedding day.

This might be my new framed photo of Rob to display at my desk at work.

Admiring my handsome man.

Random Facts:

  • white dress is $4 from a vintage pile of clothes that Anh dug thru to find
  • purple dress is from a vintage store for $20
  • pink dress is from H&M for $10.
  • brown manly chair from Salvation Army for $30. found it just 2 days before the shoot. anyone interested in buying it?
  • other furniture and accessories borrowed or from thrift stores.
  • Hoang, Heather, Steph, and John were also at the shoot as support staff.
