I am literally grinning from ear to ear as I write this blog post! Last year, after I photographed Matt and Melanie’s wedding, I went home and I was really sad. I felt like I had just made some dear friends and I didn’t know the next time I would have the privilege of spending time with them, their friends, and their family! Then to my complete surprise and JOY… Melanie’s brother, Mike proposed to his longtime girl friend, Casey last February. Casey reached out to me and I nearly freaked out with excitement. Not only are these two abosulety the most kind and sweet individuals, they actually met in middle school. They even dated on and off again since then! When they told me their engagement story, I swear my heart melted.
Mike had bought Casey a lovely jewelry mirror for Christmas and took his time hanging it. One day, in February, Mike went to put it together. When Casey came down to see it, their then 3 month son was sitting next to it. When Casey opened it, there she saw her beautiful engagement ring – smack dab in the middle. Casey was in complete shock! I am so glad Mike could completely surprise her! As you can tell from Jordan’s face below – we are ALL pretty stoked about these two getting married!
We started the session at NayAug and then stopped by their middle school where they met. I wish I could say that is the most impressive thing about these two – but there’s so much more. From being amazing parents to just genuinely funny humans, they have these huge hearts full of love and I feel so lucky to have them as clients and friends.
Mike and Casey, I can not wait till your wedding! Thanks for wandering around Scranton with me. XOXO.
