Melissa emailed me before our trip to see if we would be able to make it to Scottsdale for their wedding date. I think we were both pretty bummed that the timing wasn’t going to work out, but jumped at the opportunity for an “engagement” style shoot. Although they were already married by the time we arrived in Arizona, they had not had engagement portraits taken prior to their wedding, so it was special being able to capture their love at this time in their lives through some casual photos. Melissa randomly moved to Arizona from Michigan after school and met Matt about 3 weeks after settling in. She was at a gas station and he shouted over to her from a neighboring pump about her Michigan tags. And from there we all know the story… Love at first sight!
Melissa chose a really great location in Old Town Scottsdale… so much variety!
