Jonathan + Melanie . Engaged! A Botanical Gardens & Regent University Engagement

I met Melanie last fall at the Founders Inn Show Bride wedding show and I immediately fell in love with her.  Melanie is one of those people who make you see the world in a happier way. Her positive and joyful spirit is one of my favorite things about her!  We instantly hit it off.  I didn’t hear from her for some time, but one day I received an email from her and she reminded me who she was…I would never forget someone like her! Sadly, we weren’t available for her original date this November, so I let her know.  I was bummed because she was definitely someone I wanted to get to know better.  About a month or two later I got another email from her saying her and her fiance had moved their date to late December and she asked if we would be available then and we were!  We all met up at Starbucks and had such a wonderful time chatting and getting to know each other.  Her finance, Jonathan, was just as wonderful as her!

This past Sunday the three of us spent several hours together and it was so refreshing seeing their pure and innocent love for each other…as they danced playfully at Regent University and made sure the most important thing were included in their engagement session; the Bible and their love for it! Jonathan is so kind and fits so perfectly with Melanie.  Melanie is full of life and joy!  I loved the formal attire they chose for their engagement session and the Botanical Gardens was such a gorgeous backdrop to document this special time.

 Jake and I are so honored to get to photograph the most amazing couples.  Jonathan and Melanie we cant wait to be a part of your wedding in December.  We know God will be in the midst and He is smiling over you too, blessing you both with the desires of your heart!  Thank you for the privilege to watch in those blessings! Congratulations! Xoxo
