As an avid user of Pinterest, it didn’t take me long to see that there are thousands of creative ways to take your engagement photos. It also didn’t take me long to realize there was only one kind of photos I wanted to take: vintage travel engagement.
Engagement photos are an opportunity to celebrate your engagement and show the world your love, and, if you want to, your unique personality as a couple. As travelers and travel bloggers who met traveling, it was clear that travel had to be an integral part of our photos. (It will also have a place in our upcoming wedding). But we wanted to have an extra bit of fun with our engagement photos, and we thought, why not go all out and dress up in 1940s era garb?
So, toting vintage suitcases and after scouting out the perfect location, we met up with our fantastic photographer Stephanie, who was super excited about our session. It was a blustery, cold day, with the threat of rain all too imminent, but we forged ahead and even took a few turns dancing in the rain. Here are some of our very favorite photos from that day.
All photos were taken by Stephanie Smith of Photographs by Stephanie, Raleigh, NC.
