Using a Creative Engagement Photo-shoot to Add to Your Wedding Experience
Jennifer and Kevin are a couple who spent most of their relationship on opposite sides of the country; Jennifer in LA and Kevin in NY. Fortunately, however, Kevin is a pilot, so making travel arrangements came a bit easier for him.
When their photographer, Caroline Tran was conceptualizing their engagement photo-shoot, it occurred to her that an airport would be the perfect location to capture their… journey together. Kevin, being a pilot, was able to arrange for them to shoot at the Santa Monica Airport.
Caroline shared with Jennifer her vision of including folded paper airplanes, who took the idea a step further by incorporating vintage maps in the design.
Caroline’s vision of capturing the couple under a sky of the little paper airplanes wasn’t realized — the little planes just wouldn’t cooperate. However, as luck would have it though, the couple (and Caroline) ended up loving the airplanes strewn all over the ground. Lesson learned… being flexible can sometimes lead to a better solution in the end.
Thinking of little ways to incorporate aspects of your relationship into your wedding experience will make it more special for you and for your guests. Jennifer and Kevin were fortunate to be able to work with Caroline, who had a vision and was able to help them include an undeniable aspect of their relationship in their engagement photos. Years from now, they will look at these photos in a different way, because they do more than just capture Jennifer and Kevin’s image — they tell a story.
