Melanie and Matt were our first couple to try our new Luxury Themed Sessions. An Engagement session on steroids, our Luxury Themed Sessions include hair, make up by the ever awesome JK Flashy, a theme of your choice and a consultation to brainstorm ideas for your shoot.

This shoot was originally conceived as a hot air ballon shoot at sunrise and evolved into a WWII themed session complete with bi-plane. Melanie, who is a certified flight instructor, was able to secure us an airfield for the afternoon and a WWII era Stearman which was used to train army air corps pilots.

We met up with our two lovebirds at the Chester Airport in Chester, CT. During the entire shoot we were dodging aircraft taking off, landing, refueling and taxiing. It definitely kept us on our toes!!!

Here are some of our fav’s.
