I am pretty excited about this couple’s upcoming wedding. Not only are they getting married at one of the most iconic venues in the Southeast (hello Biltmore Estate,) but Melissa is one of the most laid-back brides I have ever worked with. And Matt, though he will likely resent us both after the hours of planned portraits, is just as laid back and dedicated to making sure she’s happy through the planning of this wedding.
Melissa and Matt’s dogs are a huge part of their life and are very much like their children. Melissa owned Roxy as a “single lady,” then she and Matt adopted Bali as a puppy once their relationship got serious. Nine years later, they have truly grown to be a family. During the planning of their engagement session, Roxy developed some health concerns… Seeing that Melissa was understandably stressed over what was going on with her little pup, I suggested that we include both dogs in their shoot to truly capture their relationship and something that matters a great deal to the them.
