Engagement Shoot: Retro Romance at the Battleship Texas State Historic Site

We just adore engagement shoots that venture outside the box and surprise us with unique concepts, backdrops or styles. So when CivicPhotos introduced us to Jason and Amanda’s Texas engagement session below, we were hooked in an instant. Starting out with a retro Navy theme, the couple and CivicPhotos headed out to Battleship Texas State Historic Site for some fun photos with the anchored ships. And boy, did the chemistry flow between them! To really set the scene, Amanda wore high-waisted black shorts, a lipstick-red sweater, and simple black heels for a vintage-inspired look. Jason wore his Navy uniform, which really gave a feel of historic romance to the portraits. After the playful portion at the battleships, the trio then decided it was time to transition into more modern-day style shots. First, Amanda and Jason opted for a more casual look by keeping their outfits simple and choosing the green lawns around the museum for the backdrop. As you can see, it was a perfect atmosphere for bringing out their playful sides! Finally, toward the end of the day, they stepped up the glamor as Amanda put on a little black dress and pearls and Jason donned a sophisticated grey suit and red tie. All gussied up, they began the last few hours of shooting with some drama-inspired shots on the steps of the museum. Then, as the sun began to set, they walked out to the nearby fields for a few final shots that are totally breathtaking. From retro to romance, color us captivated!
