Top Gun inspired engagement shoot in Nevada near Las Vegas Flight to new heights. You alone and make my soul take flight. Romance in the desert 21 pilots. Enjoy this Top Gun style session with red dress, 80's style, blue suit, crashed navy planes
Held at the Nelsons Ghost Town in Searchlight, Nevada, about a 45-minute drive south of Las Vegas. This couple shared how they met and why this stunning location was perfect for their love story. Is anyone else getting the hottest Top Gun vibes from this?
"Joeri and I met 5 years ago at Ultra Music Festival. On the last day of the festival, I didn't even want to attend, but my friend urged me to go. We met in the crowd and after ignoring him for a couple of hours, my friend ditched me to find a guy she met the day before, so I had to decide right then and there if I wanted to continue hanging out with Joeri and his friend. I decided to stay and continue to chat for the rest of the evening. We stayed in contact and chatted daily for multiple hours a day, him living in the Netherlands, and I in San Francisco.
Our first date was in Paris a few months later, and at that moment we decided to try long-distance. For the first two years, we did distance and Joeri was able to find internships, study abroad, and any opportunity to come to California, where we would live together for a few months at a time. Finally, when COVID hit, we decided to elope. It wasn't our plan, but with borders being closed, we had the choice to keep him in the US or do distance for an unknown amount of time. We got married in a helicopter over the Vegas strip, and little did we know we would move to Vegas a year later!
We are already married and would love some kick-ass photos for our formal wedding (next March), but mainly so we can have awesome couples photos for our new Vegas home. Something we love doing together is flying! It's been a passion of mine for the last decade and after meeting Joeri he supported me in my endeavors. Our formal wedding is actually in an aviation museum!"
