Airplane hangars have recently gained popularity as a location for photo sessions but I think what makes them a fitting place for photos is when there’s a personal connection to the planes themselves. Scott has deep roots- he’s a pilot amongst a family of pilots- and was thrilled to hang out with the vintage aircraft pictured here. I like how Rachel and Scott’s fun vibe and ease with each other comes through in each photo.
Scott planned a weekend in Sedona for us. We went on this beautiful hike and Scott ‘pretended’ to have dropped a flashlight that he usually carries on him. So here we are looking for this flashlight (which he really did misplace a few weeks prior), and backtracking our trail, when all of a sudden he says, “Oh there it is!” and kneels down to get it, only when he turns back around, he is on one knee holding my ring in his hand. It was romantic and funny and totally Scott.
Rachel: My favorite thing is by far his sense of humor. We have a really similar sense of humor and are constantly laughing and cracking jokes! That’s what attracted me to him in the first place and as I say to random strangers he makes laugh, “Everyday is a party!”
Scott: One of my favorite things about Rachel is that she likes to try new things to do. We often go to restaurants and things like that that I normally wouldn’t try on my own. She keeps things interesting. I also really like her Miniature Pinsher, Lilu.
What drew you to Mike Olbinski Photography? I met Mike during a photo exhibition I participated in a year before. It was then that I noticed his outstanding weather photography. One of the things that Scott and I have in common is our intense love for all things storms. Lighting. Thunder. Rain. The more the better. I was fascinated with Mike’s work and shared it with Scott…The thing we like most about him was his style. He didn’t churn out cookie cutter wedding images. What we saw were beautiful, unique, candid images, and that was exactly what we wanted for our engagement and wedding.
Congratulations to Rachel and Scott who were recently married (their wedding was a “vintage, french, romantic, rustic chic, romantic, intimate backyard wedding” ) and thank you for sharing your engagement session with us!
