Matt & Melissa // Yours, forever.

I could spend hours with these two. I enjoy their company ever so much.

Matt & Melissa contacted me a LONG time ago inquiring about wedding photography. It was Matt who actually emailed me - a surprise to me, as it's usually the bride who does that. We actually booked before even meeting - they gushed over my work and I gushed back at them! We finally met over some always delicious green iced tea, and knowing we were the perfect fit was just reinforced even more! I fell in love with these two, and we planned their engagement session months ahead of time. Timeless but contemporary, dabbled with bits of rustic & vintage props.

M&M are SO in love with each other, and I just loved being around them. They're some of the kindest people you'll ever meet, with a witty sense of humor and the biggest hearts. Matt is a marine & a firefighter, so a big THANK YOU goes out to all he sacrifices for us. Melissa is just the definition of a sweetheart. They're just perfect for each other, and I'M excited for them to spend the rest of their lives together!

We all had to much fun at the session - finally being able to shoot together after so much anticipation! We were sweaty and hot, covered in sticky champagne from the picnic, and still smiling. We got ice cream afterwards and talked about everything from our favorite flavors to college roommate stories to what they liked to do for date nights. Which, I loved Matt's answer to. 

"Anything, really. Just as long as I'm with her."

Needless to say, I cannot wait for their wedding next fall.

Enjoy our ice cream selfie! And all the stunning pictures that I couldn't stop smiling at while editing.
