From The Photographer:
“I’m excited to submit this Holiday-Inspired Newlywed Session I shot last fall for the sweetest Wisconsin couple, Melissa and James.
Melissa and James were recently married (it was their 6 month anniversary when these photos were taken) and they wanted to do a fun, holiday-themed session in the woods to commemorate their first Christmas together as husband and wife. I know it’s not a typical engagement or 1 year anniversary session, but you can really feel the love between them and the “just married” glow is super apparent on their faces (plus – lots of gorgeous ring shots!).
James and Melissa were not looking for each other when they found one another (isn’t that how most great love stories start?). Introduced during a birthday party of a mutual friend, they quickly fell for each other and were inseparable after only a few short weeks – during which Melissa caught the flu and James was glued to her side taking care of her!
These two are so inspiring for many reasons: they are each other’s biggest fans, they have the same dorky sense of humor, they love traveling all over together on James’ motorcycle, and their biggest ambition is to start a family (which is actually happening in March, yay!). They are the perfect picture of what real, authentic love feels and looks like, and it is certainly apparent in their photos together.”
