Melissa and I have been friends since elementary school. We were in Girl Scouts together all the way through high school and she is honestly one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Melissa recently became engaged to Tim - a thoughtful, kind, and funny guy who makes Melissa's eyes light up. We had a great time spending an EARLY Sunday morning together and it was such a pleasure to witness their love for one another. Melissa and Tim, thank you for allowing me to document this special moment in your lives! I am so excited for you both and I can't thank you enough for being willing to traipse into the wilderness in evening wear in order to get beautiful photos. I hope you enjoy them!
Melissa and Tim love to go on picnics so they set up a little picnic for our photos! The beautiful quilt was made by Melissa's grandmother.
I told them to simply do what they would normally do on a picnic together. Melissa promptly spilled some sparkling cider and both Tim and Melissa assured me that is exactly what would happen on one of their normal picnics. :)
After a quick outfit change and a hike through some treacherous terrain, we were ready for some more photos!
Melissa, you are so beautiful! Melissa kept getting stuck by scratchy plants so Tim offered her a piggyback ride to our next photo location. See, chivalry isn't dead at all!
Congratulations, Melissa and Tim!
