From the first second I heard from Melissa about her wedding, I knew that these two meant business. By that, I mean they totally dig each other. They’ve known each other for years, since high school. But it wasn’t love right from the start. Brendan used to knock Melissa’s books out of her arms and run down the hallways. Okay, there I go making up stories again. 😛 Really though, they’ve known each other for years and realized that they just needed to be with each other.
We booked everything thru e-mail (shoutout to Janet and Matt for sending these two my way) but when we first physically met, at the mall of all places (which was totally my idea) , I could see just how great these two are with each other. Their styles match and their energies seem to balance each other out. And I mean… They’re both chill and just kind souls.
Anyway, their engagement session… They were willing to pretty much roll with what ever I threw at them. And I had Brendan hooked from the second I mentioned the skate park. So we started at the CT State Capitol in downtown Hartford and got some great stuff. Then we made Brendan’s night and went down to the skate park. And hey, no one broke any bones either. Though Brendan did make sure he showed Melissa some of his moves. It was actually a great moment as he wanted to get this full grind on camera. (grind: the skateboard on a corner, not Brendan on Melissa) Truth be told, he couldn’t stick the landing (sorry for bringing that to light man), then shit got real and I said “If you don’t land it this time, the wedding is off”….. Feel all the pressure, Brendan jumps on his board, sweat rolling down his brow (because it was really flippin’ humid out, not because he was nervous), kicks up onto the ledge, grinding down, Melissa clapping, SLAM! He lands it like childsplay! That being said…………
The wedding is still on.
Enough of my rambling and non-sense. How about I just share a little video teaser and some photos???
