The much-beloved Disney Pixar film, Up, tells the story of a true love that inspired lifelong happiness and the pursuit of adventure. As romance bloomed between Rachelle and Justin, this movie was the first that they watched together. Looking back, their choice seems to be a harbinger of things to come for their connection would continue to grow, much like Carl and Ellie’s. Years later, the engaged lovebirds hold a special place in their heart for a story they shared at the beginning of their time together. Rachelle and Justin went to Sara Marie Photography, who captured their surprise proposal last year, with the idea for an Up–inspired engagement shoot. She leapt at the chance to incorporate the colorful aesthetic and whimsy of the film into their portraits. Colorful balloons (a must for this session!), a classic vintage picnic and a small, rustic tent were all provided by the photographer. Those props give a light-hearted, playful feel to a perfect spring engagement shoot!
Thank you for sharing, Sara, you’ve captured this couple’s love, and the sentiments of Up, perfectly!
