Mike + Melissa // Engaged

Skylands Manor Engagement Photographer

Engagement session at Skylands Manor in Ringwood, NJ

Michael (Mike) and Melissa are two of the funnest, laid-back people I have worked with. When they mentioned they wanted to do their engagement photos at Skylands Manor and maybe also nearby Ringwood Manor I was totally jazzed. I had heard of both places before and knew that they were beautiful places to shoot so I could not wait to get up there and explore the grounds with these two! 

We had to reschedule once because of the rain and boy am I glad we did. The weather was serious perfection and I was so grateful that we had perfect temps and some beautiful light to work with during our session. 

Mike and Melissa attend the same church as Paul and I, so we already have a special connection. They also met online which is how Paul and I met online as well, so already we know we just love them. They both have such a joy in their smiles and their laughs and I love how they interacted with each other all throughout the session. You can just see the love radiating out of them! 

We had our session on a gorgeous Tuesday night last week and other than navigating a few other photographers with couples there (and swatting a LOT of bugs) we pretty much had the place to ourselves! We had such a fun time exploring everything and the way Mike makes Melissa laugh still has me chuckling. He is so good at it!! 

Congrats to Mike and Melissa on their engagement and I can hardly wait for their wedding in March of next year!
