Savannah+Hans had an epic engagement session. For our first look (yes, this set is just the first of 3) we did a Mad Men inspired session, integrating their love of books, quality time and sophistication (with a healthy dose of fun!) We started at the Georgetown Public Library…
This book, Love in the Time of Cholera, is incredibly dear to their hearts -Savannah’s #1 favorite- and has great significance to their relationship.
We stepped out to the patio of The Red Poppy Coffee Co. located in the library for a lovely coffee break.
There’s great significance for the New York Times. You see, Hans used the Times to propose to Savannah. He took a picture of his hand holding the engagement ring and had it printed as if it were an advertisement, then stuck it inside the paper. Savannah began reading it that morning, noticed the “ad”, picked it up and thought, “Oh, that’s pretty,” then set it aside. Hans sat there, a bit unnerved. Was this going to work? Savannah continued reading, picked the ad up again and thought, “The hand model they used for this ad really needs a manicure -odd that they’d use such a rough hand to model such a gorgeous ring.” And then, FINALLY, she turned it over and read the beautiful love poem (a Pablo Neruda -so beautiful) that Hans had placed there. And the she got it.
What follows coffee? Cocktails, of course! Next we shot at Uptown Social, one of Georgetown’s great places to grab a drink, some grub and enjoy intimate areas to visit with your friends or sweetheart.
A view of the courthouse, the seat of Williamson County.
Our look wouldn’t be complete without a stop at The Monument Cafe, an absolute favorite for locals and visitors. We ordered burgers and sweet potato fries to go -featured in our next look/location (which you’ll see featured here soon!)
Are you in love with “Mad Men?”
Or just Mad about your Man? Savannah+Hans brought their own personal style (and excellent shopping skills) to enhance their look by wardrobe, while I supplied several choice props and found locations that brought their love story to life. It is so satisfying for me to work with my couples to create artistic expressions of their love and their journey together.
What’s your story? Let’s tell it!
