To tell you about Melissa & Alex, we first have to rewind to last September to Sheba & Nolan’s wedding at the Garden Club of Jacksonville. It was that evening that we first met Melissa & Alex, who were excited to be celebrating the marriage of their dear friends and also thinking about their own wedding day! Alex came up to us at the wedding and said that he was engaged and asked if we travel. Do we?!?! Heck yes, we LOVE to travel! So then he told us they live in the Boston area but were planning a Florida destination wedding. Now, I won’t spoil the surprise but I will tell you that you HAVE to come back and check the blog at the end of July to see the amazing wedding they have planned! It’s going to be off the charts incredible! I went down to Tampa to meet up with them during one of their meetings at the venue and… wow! Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one!

Fast forward to Memorial Day weekend. We were in New England to shoot two weddings and had plans to meet up with Melissa & Alex for some engagement photos in downtown Boston. We spent the morning at Fenway watching the Red Sox beat the Royals (more on that later this week) and then we met up with them at one of Boston’s most beautiful locations, the Public Garden. It was a gorgeous day and there were a lot of people there, but it’s such a huge park that we were able to find plenty of places that were quiet. From the very beginning, Melissa & Alex were so relaxed and were cute and flirty one minute and then sassy and sexy the next. All we had to do was click the shutter. They put a lot of thought into their session, and it turned out to be one of our favorite e-sessions ever!

After some engagement photos at the Public Garden, Melissa & Alex changed for a night on the town! I think my jaw dropped when we first saw them, because they looked amazing! I mean, seriously, just look at the photos. They are such a gorgeous couple!

They really wanted to do a shot in front of the subway, which was too fun! After a short ride on the train, we stopped for more engagement photos at Quincy Market. There were some fun street lamps that we just HAD to use! We came back to Quincy Market later for drinks and a couple of fun, grainy photos at Anthem Kitchen & Bar.

When Melissa & Alex were planning their engagement session, they asked around for locations and everyone said “You have to do engagement photos at Long Wharf.” We walked over there just as the sun was setting and casting hues of pink and purple on the tall buildings nearby. Facing East, we got the brilliant blue sky that we love to shoot so much! It was a gorgeous, romantic setting down at the wharf, and a great way to end the engagement session!

We are so glad we had a chance to meet up with Melissa & Alex before their wedding day! They are so much fun and now we’re so anxious for their wedding day to get here!!! We hope you guys had as much fun as we did, and we look forward to seeing you again next month for the big day! : )
