I’m constantly getting to spend time with the happiest couples, so in love in the midst of wedding planning, and crying happy tears while they finally say “I do!”. But every now and then I get to meet two people who are different. If you ask Melissa and Ron, they probably think I mean “different” in general (which is why I love them so much!), but what I really mean, is that they are different with each other.
I first met these two through one of my best friends, when we headed out to Grand Bend to celebrate her birthday. They were so nice, so easy to talk to, and so enjoyable to be around. It wasn’t until their engagement session, though, that I really saw it. To put it simply, these two are destined to be together. I honestly don’t know if I have ever met two people that I can so easily describe as a “perfect match”. My heart was bursting the whole time as I watched them interact with one another in front of my camera!
We laughed and joked while we adventured around downtown, and my absolute favourite moment actually happened when their session had just ended. Melissa was standing up on a ledge, bending down to give Ron a kiss for the very last shot. I was about to put my camera away when Ron scooped Melissa up in his arms to help her down off the ledge, and just held her there for a minute, gazing into her eyes before leaning in for a kiss, and then set her down on her feet. Moments like that are why I love my job SO much, and you’ll definitely want to make sure you scroll all the way down to the end of this post to see just what I’m talking about!
