Last week I caught up with our October 7th 2012 couple, Christine and Tom! You local people might know Tom or Tommy if you will. His family has owned Hughes Opticians forever and Tom also has his company Tommy Shades. Now, I’m not doing an infomercial here but if you wear frames or are looking some hot shades these are the places to go in the area. They have the exclusive lines no one else carries.. Anyway, Christine and I threw so many locations out there for engagement sessions until we figured out a spot. This location is a family friend of Tom’s and couldn’t have been more perfect or unique! I easily could have shot there for another hour because there were so many places I kept discovering. So with that, I present Christine and Tom’s engagement session. You guys are both super fun and easy to photograph which makes me that much more excited for your upcoming wedding! Thanks again!


Meet Christine and Tom.. How sweet is the location of this first image?

It was only right we took one image in shades! I mean come on, he is “Tommy Shades” for crying out loud!

Ah.. this is one of my favorites from the first set..

An Elario configuration..

You know my favorite color is yellow. I could not resist this spot..
