It’s Melissa & Jon week on the blog!! We managed to squeeze in their engagement session just days before the wedding. So don’t forget to come back on Thursday to see their gorgeous wedding too!
I love all my couples but I definitely feel a special kinship to my military couples. Especially the ones going through a deployment close to their weddings. I was overjoyed for Melissa when Jon came home just a few weeks before the wedding! I saw their homecoming photos on FB and I cried with happiness for them. It’s tough to be apart plus plan a wedding in another state!!! Like many of my brides Melissa is a nurse! I love nurses, my sister is a nurse and I brag about her all the time!! Jon and Melissa met at the hospital while on assignment with the Army. She likes to refer to him as her very own McDreamy! A late night movie date to see Horton Hears a Who and the rest is history!
Melissa & Jon decided to check out Downtown Fredericksburg and the battlefield for their engagement session. Jon is a history buff so it was a great location for them! Melissa is already naturally a knockout so Kristen from GoGo Gorgeous had an easy job just amping that up for the photos! McDreamy, oops I mean Jon was looking pretty good too ;) LOL! These two were complete naturals in front of the camera, they followed directions and interjected their own personalities which I love. Add in some amazing light at sunset and I swear I couldn’t take a bad photo of these two!
Check out the photos below and then come back Thursday for their amazing wedding!! One of the most awesome weddings I’ve been to yet! All I can say is Melissa’s family knows how to dance!!
