Engagement Session Postponed…Bummed

So we were suppose to be driving up to Atlanta this weekend (we live in Florida) to take our engagement photos with an old high school friend of mine.  Got hit with twowammies this week- one, we  had to put one of our cars in the shop this week which cost us a hefty amount to fix and two, I found out there’s a chance of rain (which means cloudy skies even if it doesn’t). So totally bummed about not being able to take them.  I guess this gives me time to continue to find more inspiration for our pictures we’ve rescheduled for the end of August…like the pictures above from Simply Bloom! Oh and maybe this gives me time to find shoes like hers too! Gotta look at the positive side of things right?! 

Vintage Engagement Session

Through all this wedding planning, I’ve been pursing other wedding blogs (of course!) for inspiration.  I’ve come across quite a few who have featured vintage engagement photo sessions and I’ve fallen in love!  When I suggested we do a modern-vintage shoot  for our engagement photos to Mr. Oceanside, he agreed! I expected he’d go along with it because sometimes I think he’s a 29 year old guy with an old soul. His music and clothing style sometimes comes from the 60′s and 70′s era.  I think once my family sees these pics they’ll be surprised that I was actually the first one interested in doing a shoot like this! Ha ha! Some recent inspiration came from a shoot that Vintage Glam Weddings featured on her site. Couple Jules & Joe went all out for their shoot (see pics above) and I’m hoping we can incorporate some similar shots into our session!  You can check out more from their session on Jen Stewart Photography’s blog here.  I’m also getting some inspiration from several posts that Green Wedding Shoes featured on her blog too! We’re taking our pictures this coming weekend and I can’t wait (although I am kind of nervous)!

Where did you take your engagement photos and/or did you use a theme?
