It is a special experience to photograph people in the wedding industry... Anthony and Christine are both talented videographers at Filmwell Studios. We love working with them on the wedding days and taking their engagement photos was SO MUCH FUN! Does it really get any better than playing some arcade games at Dave & Busters and then shooting with Anthony's most prized possession #wagonbae. Can't wait for their wedding!
I'm addicted to photographing in new locations... this is easiest to do with engagement sessions. I love Emily & Alex for being so open to the idea of going to Paula's Donuts... I mean who wouldn't want to go there!? By far this session has the tastiest props. We all brought a dozen home.

So the story begins…
As we are both very close with our families, we decided to flip flop Thanksgiving and Christmas each year with our families. In 2016, her family got Thanksgiving and mine got Christmas.
It was Christmas morning, my sister and her fiancee, Mom and dad, Jess and myself sitting in a circle. Everyone was in on the proposal. My mother plans the number of gifts perfectly so us “kids,” nobody gets left out. One present at a time and around the circle we go. (bear in mind, Jess may be the corniest person, I’ve ever met 🙂 ) The time is growing closer, the last few gifts remaining – Jess opens Radish love and giggles at its corniness. We keep going around the circle and back to Jess… my heart racing – I slide down to one knee as she finishes opening the last present (she’s reading and doesn’t really notice). The picture reads, “Honeydew you want to marry me? – ‘Yes, but we cantaloupe!”
Again, she laughs – then the ah ha moment as she realizes that I’m on one knee and…. of course, as I begin to speak, my voice quivers and I begin to tears grace my cheeks.
As they say, the rest is history.
All the best, Megan & Jess.
