Melissa & Greg - Downtown Ocala Engagement

Melissa and I met through my dear photographer fiend Rachel (who also happens to be her sister in law!). Upon our initial contact I knew she was going to be to amazing to work with. Her sweet and kind voice was enough to make you feel so dear!

Our session was the first time I met Greg and they BOTH were just as gentle as Melissa was when we met. Albeit a bit nervous never having done professional photos together, their natural chemistry and dispositions were a complete joy to photograph and required very little teaching on my part for great reactions!

We started our session in downtown Ocala and to our surprise, they had adorned the streets with their Christmas decor! We took advantage of the string lights and cobblestone roads for some beautiful textures to complement their classy attire.

Our next stop was a personal place to Melissa. Her family/parents land out in Ocala National Forest. She shared with me that her family had homesteaded the place and had been in their possession for generations. How cool is that?! I loved that we were able to tie in a bit of history and meaningfulness to her photos.

When I got my scans back from this session I was completely floored. They were near flawless!

I hope you guys enjoy their sweetness captured on film!
