Melissa and Taylor are from Washington, D.C. She emailed me saying she really liked my style of photography and wanted to know if I’d be available to shoot an Engagement session for her and her fiancee’ Taylor in Rome. We arranged the day and time, and a few days before they left for their European trip I asked Melissa to send me a couple of pictures of them, as I like to “meet” my clients before the actual day. I knew we were going to have a lot of fun with their photo session, because I could see from the Halloween picture she’d emailed me that they’re a fun-loving couple with great senses of humour! :)
They were so easy to work with, enthusiastically willing to try out my suggestions. Being a classically trained dancer Melissa was always ready with graceful dance moves and Taylor was right up there with her, matching her enthusiasm and energy. They were not afraid to express themselves. Taylor was also helping me clear out the crowds a bit for their photos at the Spanish Steps and the Trevi fountain with an authoritative and cute “Excuse me, we need some space.” It sure made my job easier. :)
What a great couple – a photographer’s dream! Let’s wish them a wonderful wedding in June and a wonderful marriage! Oh, and Mellissa and Taylor, should you find yourselves back in Italy for your anniversary, I’d be delighted to do another shoot, perhaps in another magical Italian locale? :)
