Melissa + Chris | Engaged

I got the email... "Mary, this is Melissa, you may not remember me, but..." But, YES I REMEMBER YOU! When I was in high school, my friend, Megan, and I used to "baby sit" for Melissa and her two brothers while their parents would go away for weekend long bike rides. How they did that was beyond me! It was always so much fun to get the call... we need a sitter! It was "work" but much more play. We had SUCH a blast with them. So to get the email about photographing her wedding was both a little bit of a reality check (my goodness we are ALL growing up) and a huge honor. Talk about a walk down memory lane! Melissa has grown up to be such a gorgeous, kind-hearted, sweet spirit. She and her fiancee, Chris, met at the University of Arkansas and live in Fayetteville where Chris is finishing up Law School. These two have a fondness for red wine, so without much provoking, we decided that it would be fun to meet at a vineyard in Altus. While we missed the grapes, we got COLOR... lots and lots of yellow leaves, blue skies, green grass, and bold clothes. It was perfect! Melissa and Chris, it was so much fun getting to run around the fields with you guys. I can not wait for more opportunities to work with you guys! You are adorable! I hope you love your images. Enjoy the memories! Love, MT
