Elora & Shawn’s Bright and Colorful Comic Book Store E-session

Elora and Shawn LOVE graphic novels and all-things comics and geeky so a comic themed e-session at the local comic shop was a no-brainer. That shoot resulted in bright, bold, and colorful photos that spoke of their fun personalities.

We have Kira Jarmer of Ell Photography to thank for the delightful photos. She’s here with a few more details about the lovebirds and their upcoming wedding:

Holy Matrimony! These two amazing young Texans are tying the knot in August 2013. Shawn and Elora have been together since August 3, 2009 and got engaged Christmas Eve of 2012. They’ve been saving up for a destination wedding to Albuquerque, NM. Elora first contacted me back in January and I immediately fell in love with her. She is young and energetic and full of creative energy. She was an apprentice at Tom Fooleries Tattoo Parlor in El Paso, TX, but now that she graduated with a BFA, she is a full-fledged graphic designer for Laven Publishing. Shawn was a pharmacy technician in the 226th Medical Logistics Battalion and now works at the William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, TX while he goes to school for Occupational Therapy.

They both have a huge fascination with comics and comic novels. They love Comic Con and hope to attend the International one in San Diego sometime soon! While Shawn really enjoys The Amazing Spiderman, Elora sticks with the classic strong female characters like Wonderwoman!

For their Reception Guest Book, we took some of these images and created them into cartoons. With others, we paired them with fun questions like, “If Shawn and Elora were Superheroes, who would they be? What super powers would they have?” They also acted out a short damsel in distress comic strip where Shawn flew in to the rescue. We left the speech bubbles open for their guest to fill in the words. Guests always have so much fun signing custom guestbooks like this with personal questions. It’s like a yearbook signing party where everyone wants to be creative. I can’t wait to see what their guests come up with – I’m sure it will be very memorable!

They don’t know this yet but I found them the PERFECT wedding gift! It’s a compilation of all Marvel Weddings into one amazing book!

Don’t you just love how fun these portraits are? I’m also glad that the lovely Elora is here to tell you more about her and Shawn + their e-session:

Shawn and I met four years ago. He is a pharmacy tech who is going to school for physical therapy and I am a newly graduated graphic designer. We were introduced through mutual friends, one of my classmates was married to one of his coworkers. Our first date was at the plaza classic film festival and we saw Marilyn Monroe’s “Some Like It Hot”. We instantly hit it off and since then have pretty much been inseparable (I don’t know if that’s cliche but if it is that’s ok!) We are both nerds basically, and enjoy all things comic. We have attended several comic conventions and even dressed up for a few!

We really wanted a different feel for our engagement photos instead of the typical “nature” shots in parks and outdoors. So we asked Astro Zombies, a comicbook shop in Albuquerque, if we could have our photo shoot there. They agreed and it worked out perfectly because Astro Zombies has a huge colorful mural outside that was an awesome background for our photos. We also took some photos inside the shop, which is a very clean and well put together store with a bunch of awesome toys and comics, which worked out awesome for the pictures as well.

In addition to the engagement photos, we are planning a very nerdy wedding in August!
