Diary of a Bride | Engagement Session | Melissa Lynn Hunt Photography

Last week we finally had our engagement session and it could not have gone better! This is such a special time in our lives and I want the pictures to capture that; I want them to reflect our happiness and love for each other. I want to look back at these pictures in 50 years and remember how excited and happy we were as we began to start a new life together.  

That being said, I was so nervous leading up to the pictures! When we had first started looking at photographers I remember talking to Melissa and her saying something along the lines of the engagement shoot being a great way for her to get to know the couple before the wedding. I had no idea how much this would ring true, in reverse! I had never had professional pictures taken and did not realize how uncomfortable I was in front of the camera.  It was so hard for me to relax and stop thinking about how my make-up/hair/dress looked. Melissa was great about making us(ok, me: Carter was completely natural) feel comfortable and after a few minutes I had loosened up. I think that our engagement session was a crucial time for us to get comfortable in front of the camera and also to develop a relationship with Melissa that will in turn make our wedding day go that much smoother!

I am absolutely THRILLED with the pictures I have seen so far and can’t wait for the rest!
