Cryssy + Shane: Engaged

Once upon a time in 8th grade, a boy wrote a note and passed it to a girl. The note was a typical one for an adolescent; it said, “Will you go out with me?” The girl was really excited – she thought the boy was so cute! Of course she would go out with him! Then she found out that the note was meant for her friend and she had only been given the note in order to deliver it the other girl. This made the girl sad and cry a little. Little did she know that one day, he would ask another important question, and this time, it really was intended for her.

They were now all grown up when they saw each other again. He thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world. He wanted to be around her. He wanted to hold her hand. She made him work for it. He wanted to marry her. He asked, and she said yes.

Cryssy and Shane are perfect for each other. She is a Princess and he is her Prince Charming. They will live happily ever after. We’re sure of it. We are so excited to photograph their July wedding at Lazy B Farm. It will be one for the storybooks.


We were lucky enough that the lovely stylist at A Twisted Roots Salon let us take photos inside with their fish, Bob. This salon is the epitome of chic. And it has fantastic window light!
Then a quick stop by The Chocolate Moose – thank you for letting us play there! We LOVE this old fashioned candy store and soda shop! undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefined
Cryssy and Shane then decided to get funky. And boy, could they bring the funk. Love these so much!

At this point, Shane lost it. Too much funk for him to handle.

Thank you two for being so wonderful and fun to be with! We had an amazing time.

  3. […] There’s just so much to say about this couple and this wedding. So much to say I don’t even know where to start. I almost think it’s better to let the photos of this over-the-moon-in-love-with-each-other couple speak for themselves. So I’m going to do just that. For the details of Cryssy and Shane’s love story, read about it here. […]
