engaged // shannon & john // charlotte, north carolina

literally, the month of july has been full of rescheduling. rescheduling couple meet ups, rescheduling engagement sessions, etc. it's been a crazy month! so when we had to reschedule two times because of rain for shannon and john's engagement session before their wedding (which is aug 2), i was nervous that we weren't going to be able to do it at ALL! 

on our final date we rescheduled to, shannon and i were texting their entire time down the mountain from boone about the weather and where to go.. well, lo and behold, as soon as they left, it DOWNPOURED in charlotte. i mean, we haven't gotten rain like that in a really, really long time. so, we made alternative plans to shoot in my apartment, or in parking garages instead of her best friend's backyard. thank God the rain stopped about 30 min after we got to her friends house, and we were able to squeeze in this small session.

i can't wait to see these two again on their wedding day, breathing in that mountain air and seeing them celebrate with a handful of people they seriously love. they are so great together and have such a quiet, sincere love - i just can't wait to be around it again.

you guys are the BEST.

and thanks to the sweet caroline (my awesome bride from last october who happens to be bff with shannon) for her flower-crown-making-skills, even if john's allergies flared up ;]
