We're sitting in the Starbucks lounge at Barnes & Noble, working through another wedding planning session. Highlights include the lack of available electrical outlets and the fact that this particular B&N Starbucks' straws are about twice the size of their average sipper. Hot dog!
Our first assignment is to come up with a list of "things" that represent "us."
(No, I don't really know what that means.)
This all-too-magical list will help us decide on a theme for our engagement shoot as well as any props or costumes that we'd like to include in our session. I think it's going well.
FIANCEE WITH 2E's: So what do we like?
FIANCE WITH 1E: We like mocha frappuccinos.
2E's: Uh huh ... and what do we like?
1E: Um. We like music...?
One might think it's easy to produce on the spot a list of common interests. I could whip out a list of things that I like in a heartbeat -- validated parking, Huey Lewis tunes, the dentist scene in Little Shop of Horrors, I could go on -- but things that we SHARE? Stab me!
So far 2E's has concluded that she'd like to wear a pair of boots at some point during the shoot. I told her that was a fantastic idea. (Cue the Moral Support music).
