Melissa & Matthew Engagement Session

Melissa first contacted me in March about photographing her 11.11.11 wedding. I suggested doing an engagement session if they were coming to the island, and this November they made a trip to get everything booked and arranged for the wedding. We met on Horseshoe Bay, which I love, but as it is Bermuda's most famous beach and so crowded most of the year, I hardly ever shoot there. But being mid-November, it was virtually empty despite the fact that it was a glorious sunny afternoon.
Melissa had seen Matthew's photo on a friend's MySpace page and was amused on seeing he listed his profession as a "professional mouth". Intrigued, she wrote and asked what that was. Matthew is an actor, does some voice over work, and is currently Alec Baldwin's stand in on the tv show 30 Rock. Melissa on the other hand handles the PR for an international law firm. It turns out they have several mutual friends in PR and had in fact met years ago.
They met up for a movie... The Exorcism of Emily Rose. I would not have thought that would inspire romance, but somehow it did and they have been together ever since.
It was wonderful to meet you both - you are adorable together and were a pleasure to photograph - thank you. I am really looking forward to your wedding...


  1. OMG... I'm so in love... with you two! Beautiful, dreamy pics! Xoxo!

  2. B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! Couldn't happen to a nicer couple.
