50s Rock n Roll / Pin-Up Engagement Shoot

All images copyright Creative Flair Photography

So my best friends, Ben & Katie, are gettin' hitched this year. It's going to be a glamorous 20's themed affair in beautiful Fiji. (check out their save-the-date cards that Katie made herself on Polka Dot Bride)

Katie & I have a mutual love of both the 20's and the 50's. So since the wedding was going to be 20's themed she decided the engagement shoot just had to be 50's. We had so much fun planning this shoot at Manhattan Superbowl, a retro bowling alley. We chose outfits, watched hair tutorials & did hair trials, pinned a stack of inspiration shots, scoured our wardrobes for props & accessories... My very talented brother in law was the photographer along with his trusty sidekick - my hubby. 

I think they look just gorgeous, don't you? I simply cannot wait for these lovebirds to get hitched this November!!
