1940's Vintage Engagement Shoot

What I love most about blogging are the little moments that simply make my heart flutter.  These moments remind me how much I absolutely adore weddings, and how much I adore love.  Love never gets old.  I can never get enough of it.  I live for it.  I mean, don't we all?

When I received this submission from Josh Snyder Photography one night, I had had a really rough day.  The kind of day when you trip over your pant cuff with your stiletto, get a ticket because you paid for the parking spot next to yours, or get stuck behind a dump truck that somehow delivers a kamikaze pebble straight into your windshield.  How about all three in the same day?  Yah.  It happened.  And then some.

I was up late that night (1am, to be exact) working on client weddings when I heard the familiar chime of my inbox.  Being the crazy e-mail checker that I am, I decided to read that one last message before bed.  And I'm so glad I did.  Because this engagement shoot submission was the thing that pulled me out of that rut.  I just fell in love with it.  And I couldn't help but share Josh's work with all of you, because I have a feeling you'll fall in love with it too.

From Josh: "DJ + Amber love the 40's look and wanted to shoot the session somewhat in that style.  We shot at the local Railway Museum as well as renting a late 30s Chevy to shoot in a pecan orchard.   They bought the luggage at a local vintage shop and Amber's hairpieces at an online vintage apparel store."

Thanks so much to Josh Snyder Photography and DJ and Amber for this lovely vintage engagement shoot!

And Tami, I love Amber's hairpieces too! They are both swell. I seriously feel like wearing a fascinator (etc.) during an engagement shoot would be like having your cake and eating it too, if you were trying to decide between a fascinator and veil for the wedding day. Genius.

@Alicia, I KNOW. Everything is perfect! I need an excuse to dress up and do a themed photo shoot. Someone give me an excuse.
