My FI and I have been in a long distance relationship our entire relationship, so airports and airplanes mean something to us, not to mention that he’s in the Air Force.
I’m seriously considering having our engagement session at our local airport, so I was wondering if any of you have had your shoot at your airport. Did you have to go through any shoots and ladders to get it to hapen? I’d love to hear about it and I’d REALLY like to see some of your pictures for inspiration.

that is such a cool idea! i wonder if you’d need to get permission? usually they don’t let you take pictures inside government buildings, and I’m not sure if there’d be any regulations like that for the airport.

Here’s a post from Weddingbee PRO about an engagement shoot in an airport.
They did it in one of those little plane airports though, so it’s kinda different, but I thought you might like to see! 🙂

My fiance and I also did the long distance thing during our entire relationship (he’s in the Navy). SO I knwo exactly what you mean when you talk about airports meaning a little something more to you. Goodluck with finding what you’re looking for.

thanks for all the encouragement! I’m going to look into doing it at our main airport – I’m sure it’d be way easier to go set something up with a private airport, but I’ve never stepped foot on a teeny tiny plane. I’m wondering if we just won’t be allowed to go past security unless I get special permission…

Just wanted to post an update that I obtained the permission needed for this shoot! We probably can’t take any pics in the acutal terminal (past security), but they’re willing to work with us.
I googled and found some airport sessions that I liked, so hopefully we can take some pics like these below.

Hey!I think this is such a neat idea and what I love the most about it is that it means something so special to you and FI!I checked out your blog and my favorite one is the short term/long term one!
I really doubt they are going to let you take pictures out on the runway with the planes though. So in that respect my suggestion is seeing as how your FI is in the Air Force maybe he can get his superior to call the local AF base near you (if there is one) and see if you guys can take pictures out on the AF base runway with the AF planes! The FI’s brother is in the AF as well and I know when we visited him and a couple times when the FI visited him he was able to get us clearance to go out on the runway. That would be super cool! Even if you cannot do that maybe the local AF base has old planes that are decommissioned on display that you can take pictures next to!
ETA: You’ve probably already saw this but what the heck!
The nine-acre outdoor Heritage Park is one of the most popular attractions of the new museum. Complete with planes, rockets, missiles, cannons and nuclear sub sail, this exhibit will attract plane buffs and historians alike. The museum collection will be the largest aircraft collection for public viewing in the state of New Mexico and include unique military objects such a rockets, missile systems, the biggest cannon built by the U.S., historic planes, railroad equipment and a piece of a submarine.

aw that’s the sweetest thing, me and my fiance have been in a long-distance relationship for the two years of our relationship, in 2 different countries no less, so I know exactly what you mean about airports, except for us airports are too sad because it means goodbye…..but good for you if you find sentimental value
I was thinking of giving away small little globes as favors symbolizing our international dates we had; but congratulations for survivng a long distance thing, I’m glad I’m not the only one, some of my friends tht I was crazy
