“Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning. Your love paints a beautiful picture of what love really means.” – Anonymous
Shayna and Benjamin met through a mutual friend. When asked how they would describe each other.... Benjamin says that Shayna is beautiful, strong, selfless, kind and incredible! Shayna says that Benjamin is generous, loving, hilarious, intelligent and caring. They got engaged on December 22nd 2018 at Gulfside City Park Beach (Algiers) in Sanibel Island, FL. Benjamin got down on one knee and popped the question! It was perfect. The next chapter on their adventure together.
When they said they wanted to have their engagement photos at Ellie's Diner, I knew it was going to be a really fun shoot. When you walk into Ellie's Diner, it’s like you’re transported right back into the 1950’s! If you have never been to Ellie’s, I definitely recommend it. It’s like being on the set of Happy Days. And when I saw Shayna and Benjamin in their amazing outfits they fit right in.
This is definitely up there with my top favourite shoots! The colours, the backdrop, their outfits and how loved up these two are! They danced, smooched and had a sundae, all the things you normally do at a diner! (Normally you don’t have a photographer with you but anyways!) Lots of giggles and looks of love, these two were great to photograph. They were up for any and all of my ideas and had great ones of their own! As you can see for yourself, from their heads right down to their toes, they look like they have been beamed right out of the 50s! And with a nod to the gorgeous Disney movie UP, with their Grape Soda pin badges! Aren’t they just the cutest thing ever!
