I'm sure that most of us can agree that spring is taking its sweet time getting here. Temps have been lower than normal here in DC this month so it was a nice little surprise when I woke up this past Saturday and saw that we were actually going to get up into the 50's that day (still a bit colder than I'd like it to be but it was a very much needed break from the 30's and 40's we have been having). Some friends of mine will be celebrating their 10 year anniversary any day now and wanted to have a photo shoot to commemorate their milestone, so we met down at Leesylvania Park in Northern Virginia and set up a fun little scene on the beach there. I LOVED Sue's dress, it was so darn cute!! ...and those shoes! This girl can put an ensemble together! And I can't forget to mention that Shawn looked pretty dapper himself! The scene was set as a romantic picnic with wine, cheese and crackers, reading material and a blanket and pillows. We also brought in a few more personal items that more closely pertained to their wedding day in Vegas 10 years ago. Yellow roses, pink Flamingo toasting flutes, her garter and their marriage license added to the scene. They were definitely a fun couple and as you can see, photographed beautifully! As I was editing for the blog post, I couldn't help but add a little nostalgia feeling to some of the images. It just seemed appropriate for the setting and the attire. They looked so much like a cute couple out of a magazine or movie dated back in the 40's or 50's...kind of reminded me of the movie The Notebook. Happy Anniversary Shawn and Sue! <3
And of course we had to have a little fun!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY YOU TWO!
