From the bride-to-be...The theme for our wedding is vintage travel because my fiance and I have traveled to a lot of fun places during our relationship and plan to do a lot more traveling after the wedding as well. Keeping with the theme, we decided to do our e-session at the Corona Flight School which had a variety of older airplanes, which we thought would be perfect! My fiance and I wanted the first part of the shoot to be more vintage, and then the 2nd half to be more modern, with our every day clothes. The 2nd part of the shoot took place behind the flight school in a field.

DIY Project: I created a pennant banner out of old maps and hand wrote our wedding date on the banner. I taped each triangle to a piece of twine to give it that vintage look. Unfortunately we only got the banner on 1 image because it was really windy that day, so the banner kept flipping over. Luckily Candice of Mark Brooke Photographers had the great idea of placing it on the floor so we were able to get 1 shot in. I plan on creating much more DIY projects for the wedding, but for the e-session I wanted to keep it simple. I also had some vintage luggages from the Philippines.
