Melanie & Alan | Blacksburg, VA Engagement Session

I am not even sure where to start with these two. They were so fun to shoot and so sweet together. I mean, I just want to follow them around and photograph them all day long. Ok, so that might make me like the paparazzi but you get the picture. 🙂
Alan just got back from Afghanistan. Since he was away for most of their engagement Melanie told me she wanted some pictures of him in his uniform to remember this time in their relationship; and since Alan looks darn cute in it. (right, Melanie?).

Right as we arrive at the session it starts to downpour! We headed into our favorite tunnel at Virginia Tech to get some shots and wait for the rain to stop. A bunch of high schoolers who were on campus for basketball camp also had the same idea. It could have made for some awkward moments but these two were on the entire time.

Melanie, you are GORGEOUS!

They wanted a vintage feel to their photos. I enjoyed having the opportunity to play around with the photos and love how this one came out.

Alan tells the story of how they met so well. His eyes just sparkle as he tells it. Btw – they met at the supermarket!!

Melanie – here are some shots with your favorite umbrella!

Work it, Alan! Seriously, you need to be on the cover of GQ.

Our FAVORITE on the right. Words cannot describe how much we both love this photo.  They just fit into each others arms perfectly. Melanie & Alan, we recommend getting a canvas of this one – we are!

How totally awesome is Melanie’s necklace?! I want one. I googled it and found out that it is from Forever 21. Ben – this would make a great gift. 😉

Melanie wanted to make sure they got photos in front of a fence. Check! We love when couples come prepared with ideas. It helps make sure that they get photos that they will enjoy!

I’ve said it before and I will say it again – Every guy needs a Melanie and every girl needs an Alan.

Ahh, we love you guys and can’t wait till your wedding (and hopefully other sessions!). Thanks for being awesome.
