To say that Shannon & Zach are HUGE movie buffs is quite an understatement. During my first meeting with them, I would venture to say that Zach quoted no less then 10 movies during our first hour of conversation at their bridal consult! They have transformed their basement into a theater where they have weekly movie nights. They even host an annual Oscar Party with all of their friends (where formal attire is required) complete with a red carpet, awards, speeches, statuettes, and even paparazzi! (I mean, seriously... how awesome is that?!)
As I got to know these two, I knew they needed an engagement session as fun and unique as they are. I approached them about an idea i had and they were completely on board. They let me have complete creative control and were content letting my crazy ideas run wild!! I rented the Tivoli Theater in The Loop on Delmar for a few hours on a Saturday morning and Zach and Shannon showed up with all of their own vintage props! (Once again -- how adorable is that?!) They even had a bag full of popcorn, just in case we wanted to use it for the photos. I mean, c'mon... how could I resist?
Later that night, we met up again where I surprised them with a cool idea I wanted to try out. I told them to bring several of their favorite movies with them and just show up. I took a DVD player and hooked it up to a projector, projecting some of their favorite movie scenes on a big wall. Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Beauty & the Beast, and Mary Poppins were the ones we chose to have some fun with! (The story of how we actually executed and pulled this off is one for the record books... make sure you ask me about it next time you me! LOL!) A HUGE THANKS goes out to Casey (ATP Staff Photographer) and to Heather (ATP Intern) for all of their help that day!
We hope you enjoy these images as much as we do!
