Mike and Heaven are getting married! Met up with this wonderful couple in Salisbury for their engagement shoot. Let me first say that these two are champs. It was 30 degrees and when the sun was setting, maybe 25. But love warms us from the inside out, does it not? The cold didn’t stand a chance with these two. Mike is very caring and relaxed. Heaven is not only beautiful, she has an incredible positive energy which makes photographing her a pleasure.
These two met through social media. They started off chatting over the phone and Mike asked for a date. Heaven told him he could date her at church. So, Mike showed up at church on Easter Sunday. The church was having a drama in which Heaven played the role of a bride. Mike says from the time he spoke with Heaven on the phone, he wanted to make her his. And when he saw her as a bride, in a wedding dress, he knew she would be his wife. Mike proposed to Heaven on Christmas morning. She unwrapped her last gift, which was a Bible, and Mike told her he had marked a special verse for her. When she turned to the page, the verse was highlighted and there was a ring with a note asking her to marry him!
Heaven and Mike enjoy hunting together. They are outdoorsy and adventurous. For their session, they wanted to step outside of their comfort zone and go from “Camo to Couture.” So during the last half hour of the session, they changed into formal and it was all elegance and glamour. Heaven and Mike: it was an absolute pleasure spending time with you both and getting to know you better. Thank you for your energy, enthusiasm, and unguarded love for one another. I can’t wait for your wedding in September! Hope you love the photos.
