Melissa & David's April 3rd Engagement Session
I had met Melissa about a month ago after we were speaking here and there through TheKnot.com. After emails going back and forth we finally decided it was time to meet & talk about the big day. As I met Melissa & her mom I immediately fell in love! You can tell they have that awesome mother & daughter bond thats just too sweet! Melissa was looking for a photographer that would go above and beyond for her 2017 October wedding. I couldn't have been anymore honored & excited that she picked us to capture her wedding day as well as her engagements.
It was a beautiful day and I just knew Melissa & David's engagement session would be just as gorgeous as them. (and I must say adorable!) These two couldn't keep their eyes off of each other during their session! Both of their personalities are just too sweet. I think they were both a little nervous as they haven't had any pictures done together but after a few captured moments they were pretty much naturals. Which of course makes my job so easy!
How did you two meet?
We meet through my best friend, Ashley, our freshman year at LSU. She knew him before through mutual friends and she kept telling me "you have to meet him, he's so funny, etc." but I was busy with my sorority and no where close to looking for a boyfriend! But one day, Ash & I went to the 459 for lunch and he was there eating with a friend. And we met...after he had come over to our dorm every day ever since. We owe Ashley big time!
Where did you go on your first date?
We went to Cracker Barrel on our first date! Lol Cracker Barrel is our favorite!
How did he propose?
David and I had our first kiss during a fire drill. It was like a scene from a movie! Right when he was going in for the kiss... the fire alarm went off! We were both like, is this real?? So we went outside to a bench near my dorm and had our first kiss there! Once we graduated, if we ever went back to LSU we would go to "our bench"!
My mom , sister-in-law & I went to Baton Rouge for a baby shower. On the way back they tricked me into thinking we had to pick something up on LSU's campus! So they lead me by the bench! He was there looking all dressed up and he proposed by "our bench". It was perfect.
Here's a little snapshot of the day David Proposed on "Our Bench".
