Have you seen the movie Up? It’s one of my favorite animated films, and although it makes me cry at times, it’s also so sweet. The couple in today’s engagement shoot, Chris and Michelle, also love the film and decided to theme their photos around it. After finding 40 balloons, the perfect venue and an adventurous photographer, these fantastic photos were the result. Too cute! Be sure to read the story behind the photos from the photographer, Cassidy Zellmann, at the bottom of the post!
More from the photographer:
Chris, who found me via Yelp, and I exchanged emails and phone conversations for almost two months before the shoot going over details, locations, propping, styling, and anything else that was going to help us make the most of their time for this engagement session. We settled on a location with a more vintage feel to it: The Clark County Heritage Museum! I adore shooting at this place because it has so many wonderful and different aspects to it. I have yet to have one session even resemble another.
Chris and Michelle gathered propping on their own end: suspenders, printables, and a helium balloon kit (oh that was fun lol!) And those glasses? They are actually Chris’ regular glasses which I must say were pretty awesome. I made sure to load up my car with any other vintage inspired propping me might use: luggage, a vintage 1940’s picnic basket (yes it’s that old, it was my great-grandmother’s) plus a picnic blanket to help pull this shoot off.
When we had finished with the shoot, Michelle had the thought to take them back to a child who was in a photo session with another photographer there that day. Little moments like that made this a beautiful session.
