I love old movies. I also love when couples take inspiration from movies for their engagement shoots. So, I double love this adorable engagement inspired by the American classic, It’s a Wonderful Life. The couple, along with the fab photography duo Sassyfras Studios, styled the shoot around moments from the movie, highlighting those about George and Mary falling head over heels in love. It is such a sweet story and the perfect inspiration for a couple so in love. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend everyone!

George: What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I’ll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That’s a pretty good idea. I’ll give you the moon, Mary.

Mary: I’ll take it. Then what?

George: Well, then you can swallow it, and it’ll all dissolve, see… and the moonbeams would shoot out of your fingers and your toes and the ends of your hair… am I talking too much?

leave some love

    I couldn't be more obsessed with this if I tried. That first photo is, utterly, heart stopping. I LOVE when couples have shoots like this, it really adds such a fantastic glimpse into their personalities!!
