Melissa and Kevin… ENGAGED!

I have got to introduce you to one of my 2012 Wedding Couples Kevin and Melissa! Every single couple I have that blesses me with the honor of photographing their very special big day is very important. Kevin and Melissa will be no exception. I will never forget the first time I met them. We sat together in the Starbucks around the corner from my house just chatting it up! They are the kind of people that make you feel like a long time friends in just moments. While I view it as my job to set my couples at ease I felt like they did just that for me. They were just the sweetest! But mostly, I was immediately struck by the loving, caring way they were toward one another. It was more than obvious these two are meant for one another. In fact, as cliche as it sounds… they are already like two pieces of puzzle fitting perfectly together.

Their worlds came together just about five years ago when they met at a party. Like many couples I get to know, this one had the potential to be a miss. You see Kevin is quiet. If he had been too quiet, well… you just don’t know what might have happened. Luckily Melissa saw through it and asked him out. Their first date was to one my own favorite restaurants! Carmine’s! YUMMY!

I have to pause here in their story for a moment. Can we just stop and point out how absolutely gorgeous Melissa is! She told me the camera made her nervous! HA! She worked it! GORGEOUS!

Kevin is a romantic. Ok girls… SWOON with me! This darling man put some real thought and effort into his proposal. It meant a lot to him. He truly wanted it to be special. He had a fabulous plan all worked out complete with OUTLET shopping! But Melissa was too savy for that! She was on to him. Plan B was put into place!

What was plan B? Plan B involved Thai Food together at a local restaurant followed by rose petals, candles, wine, and a very handsome Kevin down on his knee. How could any girl resist that! Perfect! Just enough to keep his Bride to be guessing.

Kevin has a passion for football. I just LOVE it when couples incorporate their loves into their sessions. These photos are just the sweetest!

Congratulations Melissa and Kevin on your upcoming wedding! It’s going to be a long year of anticipation! December 2012 just can’t be here soon enough! Enjoy the excitement. You deserve it!

  33. These pictures are great! I really enjoy the ones of the couple when they are wearing the football jerseys. It really shows their ‘fun’ personalities. Although it would’ve been nice if the bride-to-be would’ve wore the ‘correct’ Manning jersey….Colts, #18. LOL! (At least there will still be one Manning in the playoffs this weekend and since my ‘Manning’ hasn’t played all season, I guess I”ll cheer for his brother! ๐Ÿ™‚ Go Giants!!!)
