Life has a way of proving that it knows us better than we know ourselves. Jeff and Shanna were first co-workers, then teammates, and—much later—friends. Fast forward three years and these two are still all of the above for each other, and are now planning their wedding! It was wonderful to spend time with them and learn about their unexpected fairytale during our beautiful engagement session on Sunday afternoon. We started with a bright and breezy walk through Lincoln Park in Cleveland’s Tremont suburb, a place where Shanna and Jeff have made many memories together. When the sun began to fall toward the horizon, we made our way to Edgewater Park.Thank goodness these two weren’t afraid to get their feet wet because we were able to take advantage of a few puddles along the sandy beach for some artful silhouettes. Then out came the picnic blanket and a basket of bubbling champagne (Shanna’s idea). Just as we were snapping our last photos, deep gray clouds sauntered our way and the hot and cold currents clashed around us. We awkwardly ran the half mile trip back to our cars with our gear in tow, managing to pack up before the first raindrop hit the ground!
Both Shanna and Jeff were enthusiastic about making great photos and had the patience to work from beginning to end for great results! When the sunshine arrived to Cleveland, Ohio, one Sunday, we were all ready to get outside and enjoy it. This unplanned, spur-of-the-moment engagement session with Shanna and Jeff was certainly one for the books.
