Welcome to Shotgun Pinups! We are a married couple who live and work in the Houston, TX area. We combine our talents to create memorable photos and cater to those wishing to try a vintage-style shoot. We love shooting vintage-centric events, car shows, airshows, reenactments, classic cars, and warbirds/classic planes. We support veterans and troops, and love anything to do with military history, vintage art and culture, and museums. We are an affiliate of Dames, Planes and Automobiles Magazine, and all appropriate photos may be slated for publication if our clients so wish. Themed shoots are available throughout the year.
We are currently serving the Greater Houston, TX area and are open to travel.
