Nicole & Nick’s The Notebook-styled Vintage Romance Engagement


There’s been a lot of vintage lovin’ on this blog lately — from a silent film parody e-session to an art deco wedding to a 1940s-inspired celebration. Today, I am privileged to share with you a sweet little engagement shoot evoking nostalgia from the ’50s a la The Notebook.

Meet darling couple Nicole and Nick whose romance, as you will see, was captured beautifully by Katie Snyder Photography. Here’s Katie to tell us more:

Nicole originally wanted to do a Notebook styled engagement shoot. As the shoot approached and we continued to talk through ideas, we decided to broaden the shoot to simply a vintage shoot. We used Nick’s dad’s car and chose a couple of private locations in Peachtree City, Georgia. Nicole chose adorable clothes and had her hair and makeup professionally done.

Such a sweet pair. Pretty Nicole tells me that it was music that brought them together! Here she is with the rest of the story:

I knew who Nick was from high school and that he played the drums and that was about it! Nick played the drums with a band up in Athens and I actually knew one of the guitar players so I had been to a few of the shows.  I remembered seeing Nick play the drums but I never really thought anything of it. (Other than he was really cute, of course).

When I moved back to Atlanta, I had a bunch of friends in the music scene. There was a really amazing concert that I was suppose to go to but I had to work so I missed it! The drummer’s name was Nick. I thought it was my Nick- however it was a completely different Nick! Needless to say, after a few messages and phone calls we went on our first date to a concert — Ben Folds Five! We immediately hit it off and have been together ever since! 🙂

More from the lovely bride-to-be:

When I first met with Katie I told her I envisioned a more vintage feel for the engagement pictures, similar to style in “The Notebook.” I couldn’t think of a love story I’d rather portray! Katie and I spent a few hours (and coffees) exchanging ideas for the session — location, clothes, daylight vs. sunset… everything! It was great how everything fell into play. Nick’s dad has a red cadillac and it fit perfectly into our session!

Nick and I were pretty much ourselves during the entire session! One of my favorite pictures is when Nick is holding me in the air and I’m laughing- that was not planned- that was Nick and I at play! 🙂

Thank you Katie for sending your wonderful images my way, and congratulations on your engagement Nicole & Nick! Good luck with the wedding planning! 🙂
