In early May, I had the pleasure of photographing the StarWars-themed Ellen Theatre couples portrait experience of Lisa and Shawn in downtown Bozeman.
This couple have dated over the last seven years. In that time, these two have fostered a solid relationship and family home with Shawn’s two children.
They are self-described “goofballs” and commented that “their inner nerd matched each other’s.”
For Lisa it was his kindness and loyalty to their relationship that she cherishes. She loves how everything he does is for the family and is constantly putting others before himself. Shawn loves that she accepts him for who he is. Together they give each other forgiveness and grace both in their relationship and professional lives.
But of all their shared values and appreciations for one another, these two have fostered a passion for watching fims, especially their mutual love of the Star Wars saga.
So much so in fact that their entire upcoming wedding celebration theme will revolve around their love of movies. In fact, their wedding will be the first wedding ever at The Ellen Theatre in downtown Bozeman, Montana.
It was only appropriate that we highlighted their favorite film into their Ellen Theatre couples portrait experience.
These two love the archecture of old theaters and they maintain hopes of someday owning their own. We decided to explore the historic Ellen Theatre where we created a movie date night/Star Wars theme portrait experience for them.
We had a blast “nerding out” and creating some personal, unique photos of their relationship in a place that truly resonated with them.
The force is strong with these two. Clearly, the love as well.
Here are some favorite photos from their couples portrait experience.
I am so looking forward to their wedding celebration this Saturday! -M
