Shawn & Mindy - Argyle Park, Engagement Session



Hmmm...the first Christmas song of the season, rain tapping on the windows, church bells ringing...all wonderful sounds. Add another to the list. Mindy's laughter. No joke. It's unmistakable. Like it comes from her toes or something : ) It makes you laugh just hearing it. It magnificent! She's fiesty, fun and fabulous -- and GORGEOUS to boot. How do people get so blessed?

Shawn is her other half. Charming, funny and sweet - yes, Mindy found herself a good egg indeed! He adores her as she does him.


I had the fantastic pleasure to spend an evening with these two love birds. They were the kinda couple that spoke highly of one another, adored each other and flat out belly laughed together. It was awesome.

That image up on top is a little different, but I liked it and it's my blog! lol To me it represented Mindy and Shawn in a nut shell. Just the two of them, enjoying each other in their own little world.

To get to know my clients better I have them fill out a quick questionaire. One of the questions I ask them is to describe your better half in three words. Mindy said Shawn was "stable, safe and INCREDIBLE". Shawn said of Mindy, "beautiful, exciting, HOME".  I couldn't agree more. They were everything 'home' means. Comfort, safety, warmth, love and laughter. Home is where the heart is. Which apparently is where ever they are.

There certainly is...no place like home.


Love. Their. Love.



They're romantic...


BABY ON BOARD! (I'll let you all figure it out)


Okay...I'll give you a hint...


Grrrrrrr!


They seriously are this sexy.





I don't think there was a minute when they weren't smiling. Mindy said it best to her man.
"You're so funny, you make my cheeks hurt."
They are happy. Which makes me very happy.



Lighthearted, playful, fun and whimiscal...yep...they're that too.



Best Friends...



They're glowing, right?


I wonder what the world would be like with more couples like them?

Thank you for letting me enjoy a moment in your company. I had a great time seeing how natural and effortless some love can be. The genuine smiles and laughter made my heart pitter patter! Looking forward to the BIG day!

P.S.

Help this couple out by leaving your comments below this post. For every 20 comments posted, they get a free 8x10 of their favorite image. This is something new I'm starting. Let's see how it goes.

Sorry the comment section was not working earlier. The comments are coming up here, but for some reason they are 0 on the main page.

I'm working on a solution for this issue now. It should be fixed shortly. Please leave comments here - Mindy and Shawn will still be able to view them.

Thanks for your patience!

I am currently exploring photography and the photographic eye is refreshing. Mindy and Shawn - your love emanates from the images. Looking forward to seeing you in Iowa - for another wedding!

Skyler is the one who wants to know about the car. And he thinks the pictures are "cute". He likes the one with the older fellow on the bicycle.
