Yesterday, Shanda, Sonny, his daughter Angelina and I braved the ferocious cold and headed to the lovely little town of Annapolis for an engagement/family shoot.
Ladies and gentleman, it was tremendously cold. And windy. Good thing they had their love to keep them warm? ;D I only had my mismatched gloves and knock-off Uggs.
I was so impressed, proud and excited that they were able to take off their "my face is being eaten by an ice monster" faces, and be so sweet and photogenic! Shanda, you looked fabulous!
Little Angelina had a harder time with the cold, but she was so well-behaved! She has an amazing relationship with her dad, and Shanda too (It's adorable because she calls Shanda "Panda." "Panda, I am really cold. And a little bit hungry. Can we be done, Panda?")
I for some reason love this one:
Shanda wore THE awesome red scarf! It looks killer in all the pictures, and was so fun to play with!
Ok, this one toootally reminds me of a Kay Jewelers Commercial, or something. Pretty romantic :D
I think this is my favorite shot from the day - and I didn't even mean to take it.
It captures them so well - the decor around them is colorful and simple. They are happy and teasing each other with playful banter and a light-hearted slap. And Shanda is holding Sonny's jacket.
I loved how she would do that. All throughout the shoot I noticed that she loved to cling onto his coat - when they were walking, when the were kissing, when they were laughing, when they were freezing.
I thought it was quite precious :D
They adore their red Mini! And each other! That means that this picture is adorable!
I think our blood almost froze inside of us at this point, but the boats sure were lovely!
And one last shot: This is where they had their very first kiss way back.
(ps. See her hand grabbing his coat? Told ya :D )
I had a blast with you guys and can't wait for your rocking, vintage wedding in a few weeks!
Enjoy the slideshow :D
