Robert & Kathleen Photographers – West Palm Beach, FL Portrait Session Photos

March 17th, 2009

This past week Erik and I took a few days to relax before the start of wedding season. We headed down to West Palm Beach, FL and had an amazing time! Throughout the year we have big ideas for photo shoots. We keep a giant list containing ideas of things and places we would love to shoot. (Anyone want to meet us in Paris or New Zealand?) On the top of our list was shooting a vintage-y session with a small plane. We e-mailed a few places in the West Palm area on the off chance they would let us “borrow” a plane for an hour or so (if you don’t ask you don’t get!) and Tamara (and the other folks) at Sunquest Aviation were gracious enough to oblige. And not just oblige – they were truly excited to allow us in their facility! As Erik and I were planning this shoot, we remembered that our very good friends Robert and Kathleen just launched their new vintage travel inspired brand. We have known Rob and Kathleen for a couple of years now, and some of their favorite things are vintage style, traveling, and airplanes! Guess who was willing to jump on a plane at the last minute to be our models!!

We had the plane reserved for us in the late afternoon, so we decided to head to Juno Beach to relax a bit.
It was about 80 degrees and the weather was perfect. A nice change of pace from the 40 degree weather we left in Connecticut.

The water was nice and warm…

How adorable are they?

My favorite from the beach.

Love this shot Erik got under the pier. Look at that perspective – and that water!

Then we headed to Sunquest Aviation where our little yellow plane was waiting, and Rob and Kathleen brought the fabulousness!

Love this shot of Kathleen that Erik got!


So fierce (I have been watching a bit too much Top Model lately)!

For these next three I was going for a “film still” look. Think Casablanca.

I have never loved yellow so much ; )

Catch Me If You Can Inspired…

We know how much Rob and Kathleen love silhouettes and sun flare ; )

We had such a BLAST with you both Rob & Kathleen. Thank you for taking that flight – it was SO worth it!!
