Where do I begin when it comes to this amazing Sherwood Faire engagement session? First off, Melanie and Craig are probably one of the coolest couples I’ve met. Of course, picking a favorite couple is like trying to pick a favorite flavor of cake; one does not simply pick a favorite.
I have amazing couples but I legitimately was SO excited when these two said they would dress up like their World of Warcraft characters, which is where they met. Yes, they met on WoW! I also love doing quirky engagement sessions. I loathe when clients approach me with the idea to “shoot at this one park that we never go to and we hate being outside anyway”
Bro, did you even check out my website?
When we showed up, it was FREEZING! I had bought this ADORABLE peasant outfit that brought me back to Ever After with Drew Barrymore (although others said I looked like Bella from Beauty and the Beast).
However, it was FREEZING and so the first thing we did was go find me a cloak. Way too much money later, my cosplay game was strong. We wandered around the faire, taking pictures, drinking mead, watching wenches make jokes. It didn’t even feel weird to be dressed up like a character of my choice…in fact, it felt pretty awesome to be around likeminded people who also liked to dork it up.
I HAD SO MUCH FUN that day, despite the chilly temps where we could see our breath. These two are gettin’ hitched this October in Connecticut (which I am SO excited to see an official autumn) and I’m just blessed to have amazing clients like these two. Seriously. This day inspired me so much, I planned a Lord of the Rings Inspired Bar Crawl if you wanna come! You have to dress up somehow, but I already have friends so excited to go (myself included).
