I was so incredibly honored when Melissa, the editor extraordinaire of Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book and blogger at Yours Truly, asked me to photograph her engagement! We shot on the gorgeous Crane Beach on one of the last beautiful warm days of summer as the sun set behind us and turned the sky and ocean around us the most beautiful shade of pink. Melissa and Shawn were such a pleasure to photograph! I adore engagement sessions because they are such a wonderful opportunity to capture some real moments of this unique time in your life of being young and in love and just being yourselves. Melissa and Shawn could not have been more genuinely in love and they were so sweet with each other the whole shoot, which makes my job so fun - and hello supermodel alert - I felt like I was on a fashion shoot on the beach with these two stunners! We were having so much fun we shot every inch of available light as the sun set around us, and luckily didn't get in too much trouble for staying out on the sand after dark, because I just couldn't stop shooting these two!
