Downtown Dallas Engagement Portraits with Melissa and Mark

I honestly couldn’t take a bad picture of these two…they are in love and it was written all over their gorgeous faces. Melissa and Mark hit the blog with a sneak peek from their engagement session, but you may recognize Melissa from another post of mine. She and I met during a photography workshop in Dallas while she was modeling and I was teaching. I loved her style, her charm and her ability to make everyone smile. She also modeled for Groom Sold Separately’s launch party last year, Alice in Weddingland. I begged her to model for this great cause and I talked her into it. When I heard she was engaged, I told her she HAD to be a contestant in the Texas Wedding Guide Cover Model Contest….she did….she was a finalist! Melissa’s makeup and hair was flawless. She does hair and makeup <<<brides, ask me for her info and I can get you in touch with her!>>> She sported threads from Anthropologie and coordinated amazingly with Mark.

Mark looked incredibly dapper in his sweater with a splash of color in his tie. I started the session by saying I didn’t feel like I needed to pose them because Melissa is used to being in front of the camera (found out she’s a celebrity too – she has had some tv roles recently!), but then she let me know Mark has a history in modeling also! You two are too much! Enjoy the images and I am so excited for your gorgeous Dallas wedding this fall!

I am so fortunate to have such wonderful creative couples to photograph. Mark and Melissa, you make my heart flutter! This was another session I did this weekend in Dallas for pre-wedding festivities.
