{engagement} amber + johnny

Happy 2012!! There is no denying that today's couple is completely in love with each other.  Amber + Johnny's vintage 1930s inspired engagement shoot had me smitten from the moment I first opened my inbox. I can't get enough of the couple's style, gorgeous locations and that vintage 1939 Buick. 
The shoot started off in Exiley’s nursery in Sewell, NJ to Penn Treaty park in Philadelphia and topped off the night with some cocktails at the Ranstead Room.  
From Amber "We knew that we did not want typical engagement photos and were looking for a photographer to help us create something theatrical.  We knew that Maria was the photographer for us when her eyes lit up to this idea.  She had the vision of the shoot and what she was looking for before we even left her office from our first meeting!  Maria suggested the 1920's/1930's time period and we fell in love with the idea.  Because she is so creative, we let her take control and followed her lead from the costumes to the car to the locations... it was all amazing!  Our favorite photos and part of the shoot was towards the very end when we were in the restaurant, The Ranstead Room.  We love the photos of us in the booth and in the street outside of the restaurant.  We looked and felt so glamorous... like movie stars!  We had so much fun the day of the shoot and were sad when it was over... we wanted to wake up and do it all over again the next day!  We have been obsessed with the photos since we saw them and are so happy with Maria's vision!"
