Glen & Melissa, A Wooded Engagement Session, The Woodlands, TX

Melissa is a person who is near and dear to my heart. I met her when she was in our youth group years ago. She reminded me of myself at that age and we had a lot in common. I’ve watched her grow, battle, succeed, and excel in life. A few years ago I had the privilege to shoot her senior photos and last week I had the honor of shooting her engagement photos, and next may I’ll be shooting her wedding and I couldn’t be more thrilled. She also was Issa’s nanny for the last 6 months and the fact that she loves my daughter and my daughter loves her makes me love Melissa even more. Glen is marrying a wonderful woman, but he knows that.

Melissa and I worked together to build the woodland magical theme of the session. In the beginning we tossed around a bunch of different ideas but this really fit them. Bill and I made the tent in the photos. He fashioned all the wood for the a-frame tent from this tutorial. During a slow weekday Issa and I ventured to every thrift shop I could think of for crocheted doilies. We scored the mother load for a great price too, as well as a few other treasures. I still needed a few more to finish up the tent so my mom found several that belonged to my grandmother which made this shoot even more special for me. Several late nights and a lot of piecing and whip stitching later, we had a finished tent.

The wardrobe was 100% Melissa. If I could, I’d have her style all of my clients’ wardrobes because she really does a fantastic job. Don’t believe me, check out her senior session, that was all her too.

The location was a special place they found and spend a lot of time at so it made the whole engagement photo session all the more personal. I am pretty sure I am in love with this location and will most definitely be shooting there again. For the time being, it will be our little secret.
