Shauna & Cody Engagement Session Part I

I'd like to introduce you all to Shauna and Cody.  They are an ADORABLE couple who love God and love each other.  If that weren't enough, they both LOVE watching Friends and were down for some goofy shenanigans throughout our shoot.

Friends and Family: to be notified when the rest of the images are available online, please sign their guest book.

You can also check out Part II of their session.

They have such a cool story about how they've been friends since Jr High School and finally got together in college. Plus, without knowing it, I setup their engagement photos at the same place Shauna's parents took their wedding photos!


One of my favorite parts about our session was being able to pray for both of them before we started shooting. That was awesome :)

And this part of their shoot seriously made me laugh forever!!  Earlier, I explained to them why I was walking around looking at my hand (it helps you "see" what the best light will be for that area).  So they both decided that they'd hold their hands up for me to help me "see the light".  They're AWESOME  :)

  143. Cute photos in general.
    I think the ones without their faces/heads are not as appealing. almost dehumanizing. just my thought.

    ReplyDelete
  144. I love how the contrast between the two people is exemplified in the photos without taking away the togetherness, the woman is shown as delicate and small and beautiful; while the guy is shown as strong and masculine. They complement each other beautifully.

    ReplyDelete
