Melissa + Jake

tessablackstone-7 Melissa came into my studio like a burst of sunshine--super enthusiastic, warm and down-to-earth. I absolutely loved dolling her up for her engagement session.

She knew exactly the direction she wanted to go with the makeup. We strategized the colors for her eyes, lips and cheeks as she described the theme of the shoot and her personal style. Funny enough, I actually had no clue her fiancé would be wearing a hat that would perfectly match the mauve/burgundy hued lip color we chose. It must have been fate! For the eyes, we went with shell, gold and browns to compliment the autumn season and her beautiful eyes. 

They chose a super sweet (and not to mention original) canoe engagement with a stunning lake backdrop. I'm in love with the lighting, romantic mood and peaceful scenery their talented photographer, Tessa Blackstone portrayed. Check out her original blog feature here.
