Dusting off the ole' blog cause Momma Mel is back! Due to Rita's early entrance into the world, I never had an opportunity to post about a couple of my favs. Sam & Adrienne are dear friends of ours and I was jazzed when they asked if I would take their engagement photos.
While they live in Kansas City, they will be getting married here in Lincoln in September (Jimmy and I are not-so-secretly praying they'll return to The Good Life permanently? heh heh). Prior to their shoot, I had a gut feeling that Rita was going to arrive shortly thereafter...I can't explain it! Sure enough, she was born (early!) two days after I took their engagement photos! Thanks for waiting until I was finished with their session, little lady.
These two didn't even have to try when it came to getting them to relax and have fun. On- and off-camera they don't shy away from showing their affection for each other; whether it's Sam doting on Adrienne as she gets really excited/passionate about something, to Adrienne laughing at Sam's dry and witty humor. Their mad salsa dancing skills, contagious laughter, shared love for the Catholic faith, and complementary personalities had me leaving their session with gratitude for their friendship and that God has brought them together to change the world through their marriage.
Congrats, Sam & Adrienne! Can't wait until your "destination wedding" here in Lincoln!
