When I asked Emily to describe her & Bart’s style as a couple, she defined it as “classic and probably a little old-fashioned.” And then she explained, “I could totally picture us back then sitting at an ice cream parlor on a date drinking a milkshake with 2 straws and it being completely normal.”

So as we were planning their engagement session, we decided that it would be fun to get together for some milkshakes first! We’d already met Emily, but since this was our first time meeting Bart we thought it would be a fun way to break the ice before the shoot! We brought them to a great little 50s diner called Johnny Angel’s off St. John’s Bluff Road. Matt and I had lunch there over the weekend and instantly fell in love with the decor and the killer milkshakes! It’s family owned, so there’s a lot of love and character in this restaurant!

We had a blast hanging out with Emily & Bart, and we’re so glad that we stopped for milkshakes first! The planned part of their engagement session was in a beautiful natural setting (we’ll share those tomorrow) but for now we hope you enjoy their cute mini-session at Johnny Angel’s. We want to thank the owners, Salem & Donna, so much for letting us do this! We just love your restaurant and can’t wait to come back next Tuesday for Trivia Night!

We also have to give a shout out to makeup artist Amanda Hopcraft, who did Emily’s makeup for the engagement session! We’re excited about working with you again!

    Aw, thanks Lizz!! Actually, I saw your pictures on the Johnny Angels website or Facebook page, but I never realized they were shot by my dear friend Corinna!! Too funny! We just stopped for milkshakes before the real e-session, but I love that you guys had the whole retro look going! Too cute! : )
