I feel so very blessed to have been chosen to photograph the engagement photos for this fantastic couple! Melissa was the 4th grade teacher to not one but BOTH of my children. She blessed them both with a love of Science. She took the time to get to know what worked and what didn't work for my son who has always had challenges finding a teacher who had the patience for his level of need. She always went above and beyond as a teacher. I've kept up with Melissa all of these years because she was so important to my kiddos love for school and learning. She hasn't always had the easiest time. When I learned she had found her soulmate and true love I was so excited and happy for her. When she asked me to photograph their engagements I was completely over the moon.
Matt is a wonderful man! It is very clear he adores Melissa (and she him) when you see them together. Matt traveled all the way from India (where he works and where they will begin their lives together). Then I asked them to brave the cold and the early sunrise morning. To say we were cold was a bit of an understatement but they were total troopers and went along with every little idea I had. I loved that he found ways to make her smile or laugh! They both have great sense of humors.
Matt & Melissa I am so very happy for you two and I can't wait to keep up with your travels, your adventures and your beautiful life together! Congratulations to you both!
