Engaged | Melissa & Olly
A Hometown Engagement Session

Last week I met Olly and Melissa for the first time when I joined them at Olly’s parents home in New Canaan, Connecticut to photograph their engagement session. The Chicago couple is planning a black tie summer wedding at Belle Haven in Greenwich next year.  Their relationship has taken them around the world together, from Peru to Nantucket to Alaska… Denver and now Chicago… but they are returning to their Connecticut roots for their wedding celebration. Olly’s parents restored farm house home in Connecticut was the perfect setting for a picturesque engagement session.  Don’t let Olly’s dapper suit fool you, this is a guy who spent months at a time working on fishing expeditions in the Alaska wilderness during the early stages of his relationship with Melissa – now that is impressive work! The distance, and lack of any means of communication during these long trips, was a test that proved worth the struggle for Melissa… after surviving that kind of separation, there’s no doubt these two are meant for each other.

Olly & Melissa, it was such a pleasure spending time with the two of you and hearing all about the journey that your love story has taken! I only wish the wedding was sooner! Enjoy the highlights from this gorgeous session!!
