The sign at the bottom of the scene-setter image on the left says it all,
"As soon as I saw you I knew an adventure was about to begin!"
There are a couple of fun components to the back-story on this shoot:
First, the couple's reception is in an airplane hanger this October. So, wanting a shot themed with flying makes total sense. Second, the plane itself belongs to a friend of Randy's and was part of a well known cross country flight a few years back. Flying is a passion of Randy's and he was able to get access to the plane for this shot. Third, 95% of the image is right out of the camera using a couple of smoke machines and Randy's understanding of lighting, composition and exposure. Somebody told him they thought it had too strong a vignette, which I think is absurd - it's meant to look like a period piece.
The first image below is the one I love the most, but Randy sent me a couple more from the shoot I wanted to include.
I love sharing images like this with you, because down the line somebody is going to ask you to do a themed portrait session, tying in some activity or event they're passionate about. It's a simple question, Randy had the skill set to get them what they wanted...will you?
