When I first met Mel and Joe for their engagement photos, they flew down from California and we had 20 minutes for their shoot. I was a bit nervous at first knowing we had zero time, but the fact is they were naturals, they were completely at ease being them in front of me, with a camera and a huge lens in their faces. It ended up being a terrific shoot and now I was only more excited to know I would be part of their wedding day!! Joe and Melinda's wedding was a most memorable one indeed!! I want to start by saying I have been blessed with having the most amazing clients. Warm hearted, loving and nothing like the Bridezillas that I prepped myself for!! There is always a very special energy at weddings where laughter is pure and kisses are sweet. I love being there for these amazing moments and I am always reminded of how very special love is. When Melinda first laid eyes on Joe it was at a bonfire, and as he sat and watched the fire, she knew he was the one. I cut the story shot a bit but it included something about "that boy is gonna be trouble for someone" . Needless to say here we are, their wedding day. Thank you again Melinda and Joe!!
We hid her dad in the bathroom while she put on her dress. One of my favorites!!
