Shane & Sheri – engagement

Filed under: engagement — Char @ 8:03 pm

“She’s this really great girl from college!” he said. Yes, Shane’s best friend told him all about her…on numerous occasions! And if her name was not mentioned for awhile, well…it was brought up again!

She met up with an old friend from college via internet! Sheri had not seen him for years, it was good to get caught up and stay in touch! He began telling her about this super nice guy he works with. Thought he would be just her type. Yes, he was perfect for her!  Sheri told him he was crazy, after all they lived thousands of miles apart! Nope, she was not interested. At all.

Shane was convinced to simply send a quick email and Sheri promised she would be kind and respond. And across the internet miles…there was a spark. Chemistry. A few weeks later emails became phone calls. So they had to admit, they kinda liked each other. Should they meet?!! It was decided! In Colorado…Valentine’s day!

Perhaps it was the gorgeous scenery, the crisp air on the ski slopes, the symphony music, or the simple fact that they could not deny the truth…this was perfect!

From that point the two made a commitment to never spend more than three weeks apart! And kept it! Months later…a three hour horse back ride up the Rocky Mountains and dinner in a chalet, Shane got down on one knee and it was sealed! It was perfect!

I am looking forward to their wedding in June! If their engagement session is any indication of their awesomeness, it is going to be a great wedding!

Because I love new locations, I am always excited when folks have location ideas. Shane and Sheri had some shots they wanted to try as in the above shot and also locations picked out! Because they both have a passion for books, the library was one of our stops!


  1. These are so beautiful. I love how you took some of them as the Prince St. Cafe. Again these are all so beautiful. :)
