So…It’s been a while since our last update…but we are ready to give you something AWESOME to make up for it! We introduce to you Johnny & Melissa! We love these two and everything about their day! We have shot two weddings now at “The Grand” in New Albany, and both brides were named Melissa! How fun is that?!?!
So without further adieu, here we go!
You know it is going to be one AMAZING day when the bride is sporting shoes like this:
and the day sure doesn’t take any downturns with a stud like Johnny!
This next shot is definitely in our top 5 favorite groom shots of all time.
So…funny story. As is customary the bride and groom had gotten each other a small little sentimental gift to exchange at some point throughout the day. The funny part? They got each other the exact same card! Out of a bazillion cards that Hallmark has to offer, they happen to pick the same one. But the hilarious part? Look closely at the card…they both say to the MAN I love! Johnny…maybe read a little closer next time!!!
Anyway, excuse the not great quality of the photo, it was taken on a fly in a quick moment in a dark room. But we just couldn’t resist sharing this with you guys!
The day just kept getting better and better! When we walked in the salon and saw this gorgeousness we would be shooting all day, we were ecstatic! Check out those eyes! (and brides: if you’re looking for someone to help you achieve that perfect look, be sure to ask for Meredith and Wild Hairz Salon….SHE ROCKS!)
And Melissa didn’t believe that we could take any decent pictures of her. In fact, she kept asking if we were deleting everything we were shooting because she was just sure it wasn’t possible to take a great portrait of her. Melissa: please accept the next several photos as proof that you are one gorgeous bride! It has nothing to do with us…it is your own hotness shining through! And in the kindest way we say to you…TOLD YA SO!
Melissa, are you convinced yet? No? Ok…here is even more evidence!
And PS….we know it looks cold with the snow and all around…but the reality is that there was a lot more snow on the ground, but due to the 60 degree weather that day (yes in February) most of melted and it made for some gorgeous background to some fabulous pics!
Hot Guys in Hot Tuxes!!!
OK…so no lie…we told the girls that on the count of 3 to strike their best DIVA pose. We counted to 3…and without missing a beat…they all did the exact same pose! We were lucky to even snag one frame, because we all immediately started busting out laughing. Could not have planned this any better!
So..with a little coaching, this is how it came out the next time!
And finally: Mr. & Mrs.!
New Albany, IN
We were so glad to get out there and get shooting again! It had been a while, and Melissa & Johnny were a perfect couple to return to! Johnny is a police officer with Shively Police Department which of course makes him an obvious choice guy for “tough guy” of the year, but we along with anyone that has ever met him would be quick to tell you how kind, sweet, and thoughtful he is as well! Melissa, you got a winner in this one! But Johnny, Melissa is for sure a diamond in the rough. Not only is she gorgeous, but funny, compassionate, and completely beautiful on the inside even more than the out.
I hope all of your dreams came true on this day! You two certainly deserve it. We had a ton of fun with you guys and your family and friends. Thanks so much for inviting us to share in something so special. We wouldn’t have wanted to be anywhere else in the whole world!
