Jenn & AJ were the first couple I photographed when I first moved to Terre Haute in 2006! AJ went to Indiana State University and learned how to fly at the local Sky King airport, and even though neither of them live there now, they made a special trip back to Terre Haute to capture these personal locations in their engagement pictures! It was so fun to get a mini-tour of the places that were so fond to him in college.
When Jenn & AJ told me that we’d be shooting at the airport, I must’ve spent days thinking about the kind of pictures, angles, and different things we could do to incorporate the planes!! Here are just a few of the things we came up with!!
I have to tell you a little story about the picture below…. if you’ve been reading my blog and looking at my pictures for a while now, you know how much I loooove kissing pictures! I always ask couples how they feel about kissing, just in case they don’t feel comfortable with the idea, and Jenn & AJ surprised me by telling me they are saving their kiss for their wedding day!! Talk about WILL POWER!!! I asked them if they were open to making it look like they were going to kiss, without actually kissing and they said, “sure!” I could literally FEEL the sparks in the picture below - it gave me goosebumps!!! It was pure torture for me knowing that they weren’t going to kiss and I can only imagine how much torture it was for them to be THAT CLOSE and still hold back!! Wow. Of course, I was that much more excited to capture their first married kiss!!!
Here’s a different kind of ring shot…
On the runway… ready for take-off!
Jenn & AJ, thank you so much for coming back to Terre Haute for your engagement pictures!!
