When it comes to Christmas time, traditions rule and that’s why we’re loving this vintage inspired engagement session photo shoot designed by Erica Elizabeth Designs and captured by Yuna Leonard Photography. We’re talking antique ornaments from the 1920′s and 30′s, an adorable real life newly engaged couple, and some pretty fabulous garments. See even more right here in the full gallery. 

From Erica Elizabeth Designs… While planning a shoot with an old world holiday Christmas theme, our model Kristin announced that she was recently happily engaged. What better way to complete a shoot than to have a real couple with honest affection for each other? Eric and Kristin, both from eastern states, came to California separately to pursue their acting careers. They met in an acting class, and it was love at first sight!

They are shown here in this enchanting, Christmas-themed engagement shoot among vintage ornaments from 1910 to 1930 with more recent European, mouth-blown glass ornaments. German and American mercury glass, vintage German forest deer and die-cut, paper Dresden ornaments all hang from vintage German handmade goose feather Christmas trees, as well as an adorned cedar forest. The table settings are a reproduction of a time that was very different from today. Franciscan china, Williamsburg shell pattern silver and Waterford crystal shine among the precious, vintage-styled stationery from the talented Julie Fisher of GoGo Snap Vintage Correspondence.
