Abandoned Airplane Engagement Session

We featured another local Nashville abandoned plane engagement shoot last year and my heart skipped a beat when I saw this airplane engagement session from Heck Designs & Photography! The bright yellow plane is located in Smithville, TN and had an emergency landing… and still remains in the same spot to this day! This gem of a backdrop gave Morgan of Heck Designs & Photography the idea to photograph Brad & Kirsten’s engagement session in front of this beauty! The play of the yellow plane off of the blue and green tones make for a stunning session. See it all below!

Kristen + Brad

Engagement Session

Smithville, TN


From the photographer, Morgan of Heck Designs & Photography: I discovered this abandoned airplane about 1.5 hours from where I am located and fell in love with it. It had an emergency landing just behind a small airport in a field and had just been left there. Brad and Kirsten were the perfect couple to brave the cold and rainy day for this unique engagement session!

How did you meet?

Kristen: We met online and had our first date playing mini golf and adventuring around my hometown. We then dated for two and a half years and moved to Nashville from Pennsylvania in the summer of 2018.

What is your proposal story?

Kristen: Brad reached out to a photographer who had taken pictures of us before. He asked her to reach out to me to see if Brad and I would want to help her out with a couples shoot at Arrington Vineyards. He then proposed during the photo shoot in the vineyards on the perfect fall day.

What an amazing shoot! Thank you so much for sharing this awesome airplane engagement session with us, Heck Designs & Photography! Check them out online and also on Instagram for more!
