A Love That Can Move Mammoths…I mean MountainsPosted on Dec 6, 2010 at 3:30 pm by Liz · 3 Comments
I bet you’re wondering about the title and thinking “mammoths?!? is this woman crazy?”. The answer is yes, but that’s a whole other story haha. But I promise you, there indeed are mammoths in this post, pinky swear.
Amber and Darrel are two of the sweetest people you will ever meet – and their engagement story is right out of a movie…almost literally! Amber’s favourite movie is Breakfast at Tiffany’s and it will come as no surprise that Tiffany had everything to do with their engagement.
The two took a very romantic trip to New York City and went together to the Tiffany flagship store, the same one that is so prominently featured in the film, and together they picked out the perfect engagement ring. Darrel then hid the box and “officially” proposed to Amber in Central Park later that afternoon. So sweet!
Amber and Darrel are getting married next fall and I cannot wait to photograph their intimate wedding at Signatures Restaurant.
The absolutely stunning engagement ring – I think it’s just beautiful and so unique.
And on the beautiful bride-to-be.
Amber and Darrel really wanted to recreate a famous moment from the Breakfast at Tiffany’s movie. It is one of the last moments of the movie where the couple finds their missing cat and kisses in the rain. While we decided to leave the rain part out, Amber and Darrel have the most adorable cat, Freddy, who was the star of this shot.
We had the session around the Museum of Nature and it served as the perfect backdrop.
Love the architecture.
We tried a little bit of “Dancing in the Rain” for the shot on the right – again, sans rain.
Dancing in the sunset – I just love these shots.
This little piece of greenery was tucked away in the parking lot and was just perfect.
Some sunset love…
See I told you there were mammoths! Amber and Darrel used to live in an apartment that faced these sculptures so we thought we’d include some fun ones with them in the session.
Thanks for a great session you two – I had such a blast!
Have a wonderful day,
