Something happened during this photoshoot that rarely happens to me. I often stopped talking. If you have done a shoot with me you know that I talk throughout the whole thing. Anthony and Leighann were so comfortable (and maybe had done their homework really well) that I just let them be quite a few times. I just watched as they sat on a log together in front of a waterfall on a cold winter morning and laughed together followed by a kiss from Anthony. They held hands, changed how they held hands, admired the gorgeous ring (great job Anthony) that Leighann gets to wear forever. Literally a dream for me. If I had to choose some really awesome people to spend a cold winter morning at Freeman Mill Park with I would choose them all over again.
A couple more fun facts about this shoot. We did their engagement photos exactly 1 year before their wedding. This is also the same place that Anthony proposed in the most romantic, disney-tastic way ever. Basically Leighann went to the park dressed at Snow White (her favorite character) to do a fun photoshoot. Little did she know that her real life prince charming, dressed in full prince charming attire, snuck up on her and surprised her with the most incredible words: Marry me?
They wanted to have a cute little hot chocolate picnic with these adorable matching white mugs. Leighann was generous enough to bring enough hot cocoa for me and gave me the most adorable matching purple mugs! It was the sweetest gift plus that was probably the best hot cocoa I’ve ever had. Just saying.
