I loved meeting Katy and Jeff for their war-plane engagement session in Port Orange at a Fly-In Community!
First of all, if you’ve never been to a Fly-In community, it’s quite possibly the weirdest, coolest thing ever. Streets are actual runways, and garages are giant airplane hangars! As I’m driving through, I’m reminded to watch for oncoming airplane traffic (not scary at all), and they even have a little community plaza where we had an amazing burger lunch!
Katy and Jeff chose this amazing location because Jeff is a pilot, and has a huge love for these gentle giants :) Especially this vintage WWII classic, The Obsession! (From what I can tell, this is the most information I could find about it online – http://portraitsofwar.wordpress.com/2012/03/22/wwii-p-51-mustang-35mm-color-slide-photo-44-74976-currently-still-in-operation-as-jeffrey-michaels-obsession/)
You should have seen Jeff’s eyes light up when he talked about this plane :) So I was really glad we got to shoot with it!
Oddly, sitting under the plane was probably my favorite shots! I loved the reflection
