Shannon and Tim are what we call in the business: “Totally super awesome.” It’s a bit of a technical term, but basically it means that they were completely up for anything we suggested, including imitating E.T. with a blanket (not pictured below because that was a really dumb idea on our part). It’s a rare quality to have a couple so unfussy and ready to try new things, but for some reason we attract them like flies to something gross (EDITOR’S NOTE: update this analogy! :-)).
It also doesn’t hurt if they are genuinely funny, honest and gorgeous, which they totally are. CCCCCOOOMBO!
