Heather and Mauno met in a production of Bye Bye Birdie at the Greenbelt Arts Center when Heather was a freshman in high school and Mauno was still in 8th grade. It was kind of funny because neither of them was originally cast in the production. Mauno was brought in by his sister because they needed more guys, and Heather was an understudy who had connections in the cast! They bonded backstage at the show reading the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and that might have been it if the next year Mauno hadn’t started at the same high school, riding the same bus. Things got a bit dicey after they went to separate colleges, but here they are…over 15 years later and getting married!
When Heather and Mauno decided to do an out of the ordinary engagement photography session, I was so excited because I get to do something different and new that I had never done before. They decided to wear these awesome and unique costumes. It was a mash up of medieval age or renaissance era wardrobe with comic or video game props (Zelda), and also sci-fi prop (Star Wars). Pretty creative! 🙂
Anyone recognize where the idea of the photo below come from? 🙂
Yup, from the original Star Wars movie poster with Luke and Leia. 🙂
Check out Heather’s awesome and beautiful engagement ring below.
By the way, anyone know what they’re playing here?
Yes, they’re playing Dungeons and Dragons. 🙂
That’s how they spend time together sometime. They also like to play computer games together.
Congratulations on your engagement Heather and Mauno!
I look forward to photograph your fun wedding soon!
