Taren & Brian: Take Two!

Every package that Justin & I offer comes with at least a short engagement shoot because we believe so much in how important they are for building friendships (not just relationships, but friendships!) with our clients and getting those fun, relaxed, trusting shots when the wedding day rolls around. But one of the add ons we've been offering is our full day, themed "Get to Know You" shoot. This starts with the "GTKY" sheet that we give to our clients, and ends with a full day of themed fun that we come up with for these couples. And sometimes, like in Taren & Brian's case, there's just SO much themed goodness that it turns into multiple days of shooting fun!

We did Taren & Brian's first shoot back in January, knowing that we would do their real themed shoot once the weather got a little nicer. These guys really just made it wayy too easy coming up with a plan for their day. For his proposal, Brian took Taren to four of their favorite places and at each place gave her a gift: an antique spoon at the pub where they had their first date, a blue shirt, a rope he borrowed from her father, and last but definitely not least...her ring! Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. So yea...we had fun with that!

People are always asking which shots are Justin's and which ones are mine, so we divided them up! We also had the amazingly talented Miss Shyla down to shoot with us, so check out her blog later for her take on things!

First up are Justin's:












And mine!






My tribute to C10ike!
