We have known Melissa and Nick for years! Melissa is one of our talented second shooters, as well as my personal trainer and friend, and it was so much fun to follow their wedding from Nick’s proposal at the Banff Springs Hotel all the way to their wedding there this summer. The mountains hold a special place for these two! I got the chance to chat with Melissa along the way of her planning, and their primary goal was showing their guests the most amazing time – the best food, drinks, party that they could possibly throw! Both Melissa and Nick are very committed to health and fitness and have both competed in that field. Add into that the fact that they are both incredibly stylish, and they were easily a gorgeous couple for Michael to photograph.
Melissa & Nick made their vows even more permanent – they went together to get tattoos done after their ceremony! I LOVE the idea and so did the artist – he got a t-shirt made just for the occasion. I especially love Nick’s expression. He looks like he wants to beat the guy up….and he definitely could!
Obviously we love all of our clients, but I have a little extra love for these two =) We’re excited for them to be husband and wife (although I’m still not used to Melissa’s new last name!) And I’m looking forward to spending more time with them this winter once wedding season slows down.
Special thanks to Jess for coming down to second shoot with Michael!
