Mel and Wes… yes, yes, and YEEEES!
This session is EXTRA special for two reasons. One, they are my FIRST Charlotte couple I’ve gotten to photograph! EEEEK! And two, they are my first engagement session shooting film and I. Am. OBSESSED! I knew their film scans were going to be out of this world, but seriously, wasn’t even prepared for the magic of Mel, Wes, and the Charlotte skyline on FUJI 400H!
I met Mel through Facebook (so millennial of us) when I was trying to find a roommate in Charlotte! As soon as she and Wes got engaged, I was so excited for her! I think because Chance and I just got engaged, I’m EXTRA excited for everyone that gets engaged recently because I know how exciting it is! A month or so later, we bonded over being ring twins and she asked me if I’d be willing to shoot their engagement session! Without a doubt, 100% YES! We strolled through Romare Bearden Park and hit the top of a midtown parking deck to watch the sun sink down over the skyline and it was pure magic.
Mel and Wes, it was SUCH a pleasure commemorating this special time in your life and I’m so happy to have gained a few great Charlotte friends in the process 🙂 You’ll be married forever, but only engaged for these short few months. That’s why I believe engagement sessions are so important and why it’s so special to remember this short time! I’m SO excited for you both and I know your wedding is going to be incredible! I wish you both nothing but happiness!
