Melissa and Paul: Engaged!

I got to go out and do an engagement shoot recently, and what's even better is I got to do it with two fantastic people! Melissa was my bestest best friend all through school, and I am so honoured that she chose me to be her photographer. We don't see each other nearly as much as I wish we did, and I didn't realize how much I really miss her until I got to spend a few fun hours with her, and of course, her fiance, Paul.

We started off at the Waterloo Inn, where they both worked when they met four years ago. Neither of them works there anymore, but they still let us run about a bit. This one was taken out in the courtyard that a lot of the rooms have private exits onto. The hotel is really beautiful, and I've never heard anything but good things about it.

We finished up at the hotel and then headed to Nauman's Farm near Heidelburg to get some photos on their property. Melissa had called and arranged it ahead of time, and she said they were really nice about it. Not only was it a really cool spot for photos, but I've heard that their products are awesome too.

I wish I could take credit for the creativity here, but Paul just picked up a pumpkin, got down on one knee, and proposed to Melissa. How cute is this guy? He was so sweet to Melissa all day, which is good because she deserves someone awesome to spend the rest of her life with!

They were so much fun, and such total naturals in front of the camera, just having fun and being themselves.

Miss and Paul - I don't know what you were wishing for, but I'm wishing you both all the happiness in the world! You guys are such an adorable and so obviously in love couple, and I can't wait to photograph your wedding day!
