Melissa + Brandon: Engagement Portraits

Meet Melissa and Brandon. They’re having a fabulous, intimate wedding in May. One of Melissa’s top priorities for her wedding was having awesome photos, so I was totally excited when she chose me as her wedding and engagement photographer. They’re a super-cute couple, who are just so comfortable around each other. Melissa was also an awesome model — she hit so many different poses during  session, so they have tons of variety in their portraits. So enjoy the photos!

We started at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano. It’s been a favorite location option for a lot of my clients.

She’d be snapping photos with her cell phone every one and while and she was totally cracking me up. She was just chilling on the rock eating fritos. So much fun! BTW, Arica did Melissa’s hair with each wardrobe/location change. It’s great to have talented friends like that!mb_engagements_1pintopinterestmb_engagements_3pintopinterestmb_engagements_18pintopinterestmb_engagements_17pintopinterestI’m totally torn between the next two as to which is my favorite from the day. They’re so similar and I love them both!mb_engagements_4pintopinterestmb_engagements_5pintopinterestmb_engagements_6pintopinterestmb_engagements_20pintopinterestmb_engagements_21pintopinterestmb_engagements_7pintopinterest

Next we went to downtown Prosper. And it was a perfect day for a session because the streets were nearly empty and so we had a lot of freedom to shoot on the streets. The next 3 are part of my favorite series from the session — I just love their interaction. I LOVE Melissa’s dress! And it’s totally what inspired the vintage effects on the photos below.mb_engagements_8pintopinterestmb_engagements_9pintopinterestmb_engagements_10pintopinterest

For their last location, we went a couple miles up the road to Celina. My parents live out there and that’s how I found this wonderful photography location. It’s the cutest town with incredible backdrops for photos.  But since the sun was setting, we only had time for a couple of frames.mb_engagements_23pintopinterestmb_engagements_24pintopinterestmb_engagements_16pintopinterestmb_engagements_25pintopinterest

Melissa and Brandon, thanks so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer! I can’t wait for your celebration in May!

  • […] Melissa & Brandon’s wedding day was a beautiful day — also one of the few without rain lately. This super sweet couple had so many little things change during their planning that it was a great blessing to have sunshine. They held their ceremony at Haggard Park in Downtown Plano. Meredith at Significant Events of Texas helped coordinate this sweet, intimate outdoor wedding. She was a total joy to work with through the planning of Melissa and Brandon’s wedding. For this Friday evening wedding, I was only there for three hours, but we got some killer shots and it was really nice to be a part of their wedding celebration! So enjoy these awesome outdoor wedding photos. […]
