1940’s Inspired Engagement | Emily and Rafael

By, November 28, 2017

Emily and Rafael are originally from San Diego, but currently live in North Carolina. Since Rafael is a commercial pilot, the couple flew to San Diego for a special engagement session. The shoot was held in Air Group One’s Hangar and WWII Museum in El Cajon, CA.

Emily and Rafael’s 1940’s attire, hair, and makeup made the photos feel like a step back in time. Also, the suitcases (pictured below) were gifted to Emily’s grandmother on her own wedding day… 60 years ago! Check out the amazing photos from this fun and glamorous engagement photo shoot :)

A Vintage Inspired Engagement Shoot at the San Diego International Airport

By, September 26, 2011

After dating long-distance for three years, Madeline and John felt like the airport was their second home. So when discussing engagement shoot ideas, there was one place that came to mind above all others – the airport! To recreate the long-distance travel experience, we took a trip down to the San Diego International Airport, and photographed this fun commuter couple.

Since a friend of the couple charters private planes at the airport, we were granted access to the tarmac to do our thing, which made for cool photos! The colorful luggage was a great enhancement to the shoot, and the couple even brought along a customized luggage tag embossed with their wedding date. Move over, Christina Ricci and the cast of ABC’s Pan Am. This high flying couple has a vintage flair that is all their own. We hope you enjoy the photos below!
