Engagement Session | Payton & Shane | May 16th, 2017
Third time’s the charm for us!! Payton and I had been nailed down their session location MONTHS ago, but then hurricane-like rain happened, and our first location was washed out. Of course, Phillip went to scout our backup location, and it was washed out too!!!!! Thankfully, we found a THIRD location, with the mix of rustic charm and near the water like Payton & Shane had hoped for!
It was unseasonably HOT for our session – and we were literally sweating the second we stepped out of our cars. Payton still looked beautiful (she did her OWN makeup – and she has the BEST SKIN too, I was totally jealous noticing that while editing) and Shane was a trooper in long pants/long sleeve shirts!
The evening of our session was our first time officially meeting – and most people would have tons of nerves! But Shane and Payton relaxed, focused on each other, and seriously laughed much together!!!! I loved seeing their happy connection.
When we walked down to the water, there was a big sign warning about SNAKES!!!! All my couples know how SCARED TO DEATH I am about any type/size/kind of snakes….so not surprisingly, I was a little on guard the whole time near the water. [Okay, I was pretty freaked out] Thankfully, all the snakes stayed hidden and I never saw one!
Another unusal part of the session was when I saw Payton’s RING for the first time. Shane had it custom made – combining 3 styles of rings that she liked. It was SO different, I’ve NEVER seen a ring exactly like it. The twists on the sides of the ring, and the little diamond on the inside of the ring is really beautiful. GREAT JOB, Shane!!!!!
We LOVED hanging out with these two! [Just wish they would’ve brought their kitties to be in the photos – serious] Below are a few of our favorites from our session together!!! Enjoy!!!
