finally getting time to sit down and chat a bit about our good friends melissa and tim. soon to be mr and mrs. from the comments we've already received it looks like we're not the only ones that love these two. when melissa isn't modeling with her man tim, she's on the other side of the camera taking sweet wedding photos under her san diego wedding photographer superhero name melissa mcclure. check her stuff out HERE. i am not kidding when i say that she knows about 82% of the people residing in the western hemisphere. everytime i try to introduce her to someone i know, it turns out that she already met them like 12 years ago or something (except becker). her people skills dazzle us. that's right, dazzle. i'll say it thrice because this is THE only instance where i can say the word dazzle and not lose a bro point. she really is amazing in so many ways, and tim is a perfect match. he's one of the coolest guys we know. put these two together and happiness follows. we absolutely love spending time with them and were thrilled to do this shoot for their engagement.
i love this first shot kim took.
i smile every time i see this shot. not because i could easily throw a "wood" related reference into the caption, but because melissa looks so content.
love melissa's smile here. so happy :)
golden california goodness.
fyi: there were no spiders in this field. especially no big hairy ones. :) melissa and tim were down to brave any danger to get the shot. we heart melissa and tim (and aaron and samantha).
tim and m temporarily blinded me with awesome on this one, but don't worry, i made a full recovery.
i love so many things about this session, but it seemed like everything came together on this shot for me. it is my absolute favorite of the day.
proof! california does have seasons. right now we're in fawlsome, next is awesominter, then awesproming, then, our favorite, awesummer.
no matter the season, tim and m look good in all of them.
watch out for the guns. they'll getcha.
tim had a little fun spinning melissa around in her dress. unfortunately for you, the censors would not allow us to show those photos.
melissa droppin the ferocity of a thousand ligers on us. kitty wants some candy.
what do you get when you mix tim, melissa, tall dry grass, and late afternoon california sunshine?
awesomeness. pure, unadulterated, awesomeness.
i spy with my left eye two of our favorite san diego peeps.
we love you tim and m!
our boy aaron and his girl samantha (of A S photography) came along to keep us all company (and provide some laughs). aaron also got some amazing shots of melissa and tim. sadly, barley was not on set.
i don't know what we're yelling about!
classic melissa and tim.
i feel a zz top reference coming on.
as twilight crept over san diego we snapped a few last shots with some home made light provided by aaron's big beautiful box. i like.
thank you melissa and tim for being so awesome. we are so glad to call you friends and are completely stoked you asked us to do these photos for you. we wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness. can't wait for your wedding in 2009! aaron told us it's going to be radgasmicaliciousnessful. :)
