Clear Lake Island Engagement Session // Melissa + Andrew

She didn't see him coming. As he rounded the corner during their shared shifts at the local restaurants, they ran right into each other. After hurried apologies, even in the midst of the busy shift, Melissa's heart stopped for a second. And since Melissa is a girl who chases after what she wants, she and Andrew started dating a few months later. 

Years passed and once again, Melissa didn't see Andrew coming. As he pulled her off the boat onto their favorite little lake island for a picture, Melissa thought nothing of it. Even when he handed her a crisp new Harry Potter book, she gave him a confused look and opened it. But when she opened the book to the Unbreakable Vow and a ring, she looked up and knew exactly what was happening.  On one knee was the man who swept her off her feet (almost literally) years ago. The man who became her best friend, her boyfriend, and now her future. 

We celebrated their engagement by exploring the very island where Andrew asked Melissa to be his wife. They reminisced about their past summers spent at the lake and the memories they had made. They'll finish off this summer by getting married in a gorgeous cathedral in Fort Wayne. Andrew and Melissa, you two were an absolute blast to spend the evening with and I cannot wait to document your day in just a few short months. I will see you soon! xx - M
