Romantic Couple & Engagement Photography | Laramie | Cheyenne Fine Art Portraits

Well sometimes there are heroes that swoop in and save the day and this session had TWO sets.  And it’s no surprise that Marissa’s mom was the first one because, let’s face it folks, MOM’S are often heroes, right?!! They quietly save the day almost on a daily basis and it often goes unknown because mom’s don’t blow a loud trumpet announcing it.  So I am here to say, THANK YOU MOM’S for quietly and selflessly doing your thing and being amazing per usual!!!

So to get on with our story here, this FANTASTIC red dress was supposed to be with Marissa (in Laramie / Cheyenne)  but it got left behind in Fort Collins and so Marissa’s mom made a special (and long) trip to get it and OH MY we are all glad she did!  We never would have known what we missed but having it meant their session had that special somethin’ somethin’ that just wouldn’t be the same.  A handsome man in uniform?  A matching airplane? Beautiful girl in a flowy red dress, I mean, we are talking smokin’ hot romance here!!!  🙂 🙂 🙂

And the second set of heroes that helped make this photo session happen were the guys who let us use this plane and who stayed an hour longer than they had to (even tho they had been there since the crack of dawn) so that we could get these photos.  THANK YOU GUYS!!!  It was pretty funny knowing they were watching the photo session unfold….and hearing the occasional snicker from behind.  But you aren’t fooling US, we know that under that tough exterior you believe in LOVE and ROMANCE, haha!

And so here you have it. Last but not least, THANK YOU Marissa and Reed for being your amazing selves. It was a privilege documenting your love and friendship for each other!

Vintage Engagement Session with airplane and red dress in Cheyenne and Laramie.

Falling in love is like jumping off a really tall building, your brain tells you it is not a good idea, but your heart tells you, you can fly.  -(unknown)

    Beautiful images of this young couple! As a wife of a private pilot, I understand the love of flying mingled with the love of your life. You captured their hearts beautifully. The detail shots of hands and her dress floating while dancing paints a great picture of their story. I enjoyed the read! Thank you Tessa!
