Shannon + Zach: Engaged: A Movie-Themed Engagement Session

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!
