Vintage Circus Engagement Photos

Some of my most favorite engagement photos are those where the couple takes something special to them and twists it in a fun way. It really makes the photo session that more fun + you have some amazing photos to remember this moment in your life. Today’s couple did just that. :) The amazing styling/coordination is by Nancy Park with So Happi Together and the gorgeous photography is from Brandon Kidd. Thanks you two! Ok, and now for their story…

We did the shoot at the circus location because Casey and I have a lot of experience as aerialists, so we thought that the location would be a great nod to that part of our lives. Since we aren’t incorporating a lot of circus elements in our wedding, we thought that a fun and quirky engagement shoot would easily tell that part of our story. We are also a little dramatic and theatrical ourselves :)

Casey is very into “old-timey” stuff, such as pocket watches, Westerns and glasses of brandy. I love the Victorian age and all of the clothing, decor and technology of the time.
