Elijah & Melissa :: Sentimental Engagement Session
I feel like I say this over, and over.... but we really did have the best time with these two! I guess that means just means that our couples are all awesome! Seriously, like I want to become BFF's with all of them haha. Okay so that might have been a little creepy!
We have known Elijah for several years as Misty played soccer with him when they were in their teens. We first got the chance to meet Melissa when we met them for breakfast early one Saturday morning at our favorite bakery down the street from us. We knew right away that we would love the chance to work with these two! We started talking about what type of location that they were wanting for their engagement pictures and they started talking about places that were special to them. We decided to go with 3 different locations. We started out at her grandparents house on the river where she spent a lot of time when she was growing up. It was a beautiful, picture perfect location!
From there we went to what is going to be their first home together. This was so fun getting to do a few shots of them together where they will start their lives together. The last location was in a field at Melissa's house. When they first started dating they told us that they spent sometime riding 4wheeler in the field and we thought what better way to end our evening then in a field with the soft light of the sun setting!
Melissa may have run the 4wheeler out of gas ^ ^ ^ which gave us some great laughs to end the evening on!
