She signed up for a free weekend on eharmony.com, on a whim. And, that’s where they met for the very first time. But, it would be much, much later when they would actually meet. Shanna laughed when she admitted, I thought he was a creeper! (Shanna always laughs, by the way. It’s one the of things I love most about her) She was, for good reason, hesitant to actually meet someone she only knew through the Internet. But, Bryan was a persistent guy. He refused to give up, and kept popping in to ask when she was going to let him take her out. One day, after about a year of trying to secure that first date, Bryan learned that Shanna was planning to attend a friend’s wedding alone. He valiantly offered to drive the two hours from Muskogee, to accompany her. It was the in he knew he needed, and all it took to convince Shanna he was for real (and not a creeper)
Four months later, they were engaged, and in June, almost one year from their first date, they will attend another wedding together. Their own. I cannot explain how much I like this couple. Even before we met, I knew I was going to love them, just from talking with Shanna on the Internet. Oh, and how Bryan called to make sure I wasn’t really in London, when he recieved the hacker email. Like I said, I knew I was going to love them! They are great people, the kind of couple everyone wants as friends. I am counting the days until their Mount Nebo wedding in June, but until then, here are my favorites from their engagement session, as well as a slideshow with more pictures from the day…..
Bryan and Shanna had pretty much laughed non-stop, which I LOVE, when Shanna stops suddenly and asks, Do we need to be serious for some….we can do serious?! And, I was all, uhhh, sure, let’s do serious. I gotta say, they pretty much rocked the serious look. But, then again, they pretty much rocked the whole session….
Shanna kicked off her shoes for a few of our pictures, and commented that her toes were painted in their wedding colors….so we stuck the engagement ring on her toes to commemerate!
I love the way they laugh together…
There’s a reason it’s called the golden hour….
