"We genuinely love doing things together…as Rob has said in the past 'why would I want to go somewhere new and exciting and not experience it with you?' That pretty much sums it up."
When we got Lisa & Rob's "get to know you" sheet back from them, I piled on the couch with a bowl of black cherries (love those things!), and with my computer on my lap I was ready to take it all in.
I always LOVE reading these sheets from our couples! Hopeless romantic, party of one! But Lisa & Rob just blew me away. Their love for each other just jumps right off the page. With great quotes like the one above and "The fact that I can’t wait to raise our child(ren) together. She’s such a wonderful caring person that I can’t even imagine how lucky they will be to have a mother like her," I pretty soon found myself crying into that bowl of cherries. Life's just like that sometimes. :)
From reading their sheet (and from our meeting with them), we discovered that Lisa & Rob are total foodies who love nothing more than cooking and collecting cook books. So we thought what better way to start the shoot than cooking up something messy in their brand new house!
We had a lot of fun making Lisa take her ring off and put it back on all day! But I think we got some really cool stuff out of it:
We sort of jokingly mentioned putting the ring in the yummy waffles these guys made...but Lisa one-upped us by saying "Yea! Do you want us to cover it in syrup too?" ummm ok! So we now officially own the rights to www.trashthering.com Sweet!! If you guys have any cool ring-trashing pics that you want to submit, just email us at email@example.com
Since Lisa & Rob have made it their mission to visit every crab shack in the North East, we decided to end the night at one of their favorites: The Place in Guilford, CT. Thank you guys so much for the awesome dinner...we had so much fun!! Let's get together soon for our "save the world" movie marathon!
How gorgeous is this girl!? I think she's going to make the most stunning bride!!
By the way, the get to know you sheet is an absolutely fabulous idea that we give TOTAL credit for to the lovely and uber-talented duo of Davina Fear and Millie Holloman. We had first heard about giving out these sheets before an engagement shoot as a way to really "get" your clients from Davina's session in LA last year. And then in May when Millie came to visit she totally hooked us up with one of her copies. I can tell you, they have totally changed the way we approach engagement shoots! Thank you guys so much for sharing...you rock!
