Melissa and Justin met in high school. They were both in leadership roles there. While attending a leadership conference, they started to develop their relationship into what it is now. It has been four years. Both are very young and very talented. She can sew up a dress before 8:30 in the morning and he just began a new career as a graphic designer. When I first met Mel and Justin, they came to my house to talk about wedding shots. They had their list, and we had ours and they matched. We visited again at the rehearsal and were made to feel like we were part of the family. I really enjoyed the photo sessions with this couple. They were so relaxed and entertaining. Justin can keep everyone around him laughing and having fun. Mel is just as gracious with her smiles and willingness to do whatever we asked of them. One of my favorite weddings. I wish then a long and wonderful life together.
Mel and Justin are so in love and so happy it was hard to choose just one or two images of them. It is so appropriate for them to be sent off with bubbles and laughter–it matches their personalities perfectly.
One more image. . . .
I had taken a photo of Mel looking into a mirror. Much to my horror when I was editing the image, I found streaks on the mirror–you know the kind–the streaks on your newly cleaned windows when the sun finally hits them. It was unusable as there is no way know to me to get rid of the streaks and maintain the beautiful image of Mel peering back at herself. So I improvised and put Justin in the mirror. It is a fantasy image–but it was lots of work and lots of fun.
Thanks for stopping by.
