Melissa and Ben had a few mutual friends but it wasn’t until they both attended a wedding where they met and the sparks starting flying. Melissa was attracted to tall, funny Ben and was so ready to hang out with him outside of the wedding. Melissa was living in Atlanta at the time and Ben was in Orlando but after making some plans, one weekend together in Georgia confirmed that these two were meant for each other. Ben and Melissa recently moved to Tampa to start their lives on the West coast of Florida and will be getting married in February. Melissa is a super talented singer and toured with the wonderful band Bellarive before recently joining the worship team at Van Dyke Church. Their engagement session was held at Indian Rocks Beach because the beach is such a special place for them. They love to spend their free time in the sand and Ben proposed at Clearwater over the summer! This session was filled with so much joy and laughter. I drove away from the session with a huge smile on my face!! So happy to share these images with you!
Thank you Orange Blossom Bride for featuring this beachy engagement session!
