{Real Couples} An E-Shoot Inspired by "The Notebook"

It has to be said that I am a lover of many Nicholas Sparks' novels.  I had never cried over a book before, until I read "Message In A Bottle".  That book right there started my love affair of these powerful love stories.  I would imagine Nicholas's wife is one lucky lady to have such a romantic at heart husband!  He has that certain je ne sais quoi to his writing, and manages to tug at the heartstrings of many a hopeless romantic out there, yours truly included.  Once the books became movies, I was sucked in more and swooning over them all, constantly surrounded by tissues.

One of those novels turned movie that I cannot get enough of whenever it's on TV is "The Notebook".  It is one of the most beautiful stories there is, so excruciating at times with the sad tones, but so well written, and, well, I don't care, I'll watch it and cry over and over again, it's just too good!  I just swoon over all the details in the movie, as so many do, including today's featured couple!  Caroline and Chase chose to have their engagement shoot reflect the love story of Allie and Noah from "The Notebook"-LOVE it!!  They so look the part, and play up the part effortlessly!  Their love and passion exudes, and Just A Dream Photography was there to capture it all!

I present to you Caroline & Chase, in their version of "The Notebook", made possible by Just A Dream Photography.








Love, love, LOVE this engagement shoot!  It just is gorgeous in every which way! Caroline and Chase resemble the characters so well, they are fun loving, and just adorable! At times it looks like clips from the movie.  I love the vintage inspired wardrobe choices, and the different scenes, it all works so well and reflects the same imagery as in the movie.  One of my fave shots is the image with the two pressed up against the wall, with the lens focused on the engagement ring-it's passionate, it's simple, yet sets quite the message.

If you were to pick a love story for your engagement shoot, what would you choose?  Please share which romance novel/movie you would love to base your e-shoot off of, we want to hear!  If I had to do my engagement shoot all over again, I would pick Amélie Poulain as the inspiration for our love story.

Many thanks to Just A Dream Photography for submitting such a sweet e-shoot!
