Shannon met Brendan for the first time at a college wrestling match. It wasn’t until a year later that they officially got together and then they were inseparable for four years. Brendan surprised Shannon with a present on December 26 that she was instructed to open in front of her ENTIRE family! When she saw a Mr. & Mrs. sign inside the wrapping she immediately started crying because she knew what was coming. He proposed right there in front of everyone and luckily it was captured on video! “He’s my best friend and I can’t wait to marry him” she said joyfully.
After spending the afternoon walking around Duke Gardens with these two, it was clear that they are a match (no wrestling pun intended) made in heaven. They compliment each other so well. They laugh together and the way he adoringly watches her will make your heart skip a beat. About 20 minutes into the session, I told them how awesome they were doing (let’s face it, engagement sessions can feel awkward!) and she smiled at him and said- we should quit our jobs and just become models. After this session, I think they could seriously consider that career change! These two were just stunning together even more so than the beautiful backdrop of Duke Gardens. See for yourself…
Sorry for the photo overload, but I couldn’t narrow it down any further!
Shannon and Brendan…I can’t wait for your wedding! Thank you for an awesome session!
