Jeff and Maren's groomal sessions


There is something inherently autumnal about the story of Cinderella.
The evenings spent at the fireside.
The fat, orange pumpkin that becomes a glittering coach.
A masked ball.
Rushing out into the cold night.
Magic.

I know it's out of order--I still have many, many beautiful sessions that I am dying to post--but I couldn't think of a better time to share these two session than a cold autumn night.  It just has the right spirit.
Wouldn't you agree?

It took two separate sessions: one for the grand, elegant ballroom scenes,
where Cinderella meets and falls in love with her Prince,
and another more organic session, featuring a pumpkin patch
and the pivotal reunion scene.
If the shoe fits, right? :)

Thank you so much Maren and Jeff for bringing this idea to me in the first place and being so adaptable and enthusiastic about helping me make it happen.  :)

One last note....Maren's wedding ring, and her bridal jewelry, were all passed down from her grandmother.  Jeff's belt and buckle came from his grandfather.  Part of their love story includes a long journey and two special books that bonded them...they brought one of these books, called Aspire, with them to the session.  It also paid homage to another Cinderella classic--Ever After.

I thought those were all beautiful touches.

So here you go...
