{Real Couples} Jessica & Keith's Great Gatsby Inspired Engagement Shoot - Part I

Today' motto is "ask and you shall receive".  A few months ago I put out a request to photogs for a Great Gatsby themed wedding event, be it an engagement shoot, a styled shoot, or even a wedding.  I LOVE the Great Gatsby, and cannot wait for the movie to come out!  I often feel I'm a bit of an old soul, as I feel connected with images of the art deco era of the 20's and the great depression days of the 30's.  

You can imagine how thrilled I was when I opened up my inbox, and there was this amazing engagement shoot, styled à la 1920's, submitted by Tonya Malay Photography!  I jumped for joy!  I love everything about Jessica & Keith's session, especially the fabulous outfits!

Tonya shared some details with us about what went on in their shoot:
Jessica Wind and Keith Gregor will be having their art deco wedding in March of 2013, and decided to stay true to their love of vintage for their engagement session. We were inspired by the upcoming release of the new film starring Leonardo DeCaprio in The Great Gatsby. Many of their wedding vendors took part in their styled engagement session.

Wende' Gilmore styled Keith and Jessica with her authentic vintage clothing and accessories from her boutique. The styled shoot took place in historic downtown Fort Myers, Florida.
