Few settings in Southern California embody old-school romance more than the Queen Mary. Docked in Long Beach, CA, this oceanliner sailed from the mid 1930s until being sold in 1968 to be turned into a museum. The Queen Mary hosted royalty, fashionable socialites, and even WWII troops. With its Art Deco style and dark, moody nooks it was the perfect setting for Claudia and Nate's engagement session. Clearly a couple that loves retro fashion, the Queen Mary provided an elegant and sophisticated backdrop for their shoot with Julie Shuford Photography.
