This vintage beach engagement session sent by Sarah E. Evans just makes me more giddy for a lazy day at the beach with my sweetheart. You may remember Jinni and Derek from this vintage aviator engagement session I shared a few months ago. They went to Galveston, Texas for this shoot, and brought along a vintage Life magazine, beach ball and a vintage blanket. Jinni’s ensembles are impeccably gorgeous. Oh, and Derek is not too shabby either :)

From Sarah: They decided they wanted to do another “themed” session before their upcoming wedding for fun, so we thought of a vintage beach session. Jinni did a great job finding old vintage items for the shoot such as the magazine which happens to feature the very first woman lifeguard! She found many items on eBay and vintage stores.

    LOVE the vintage theme, beautiful shots!!

    LOVE that this was done in Galveston!! I'm in the process of setting up two seperate shoots there soon. My couples are a little more "urban" than vintage; still, this shoot is precious. Its amazing what a few adorable outfits (or, as in this case, bikinis) can do! If you ever need a hand, I'm north of Houston and always looking for a partner in artistic crime. ; )

    This is one of the greatest shoots I've seen in a while - really different from what else is out there. I also commend the couple for rocking out their beach bodies! I love the vintage treatment on all the photographs as well - really adds to the overall finished product. p.s. - I have to know where that retro-suit is from?
  • Jinni on May 27, 2010

    The green outfit is from Urban Outfitters online. It runs kind of small, so size up if you get one. :)
  • Rylee on May 27, 2010

  • Jinni on May 27, 2010

    What a beautiful, fun looking couple! This shoot is so great. I have been pondering where in the Houston area to do my shoot, and this put it all in perspective that Galveston is perfect. Jinni has great style-would love to get some recomendations on vintage shops in the area!

    Fallon - isn't it beautiful? I'm trying to find as I type. Her high waisted bathing suit looks so flattering, she may have convinced me of trying one of these out this summer :)
