“A Moment in Paradise” – Jennifer & Jeffrey // Engagement

It was such a glorious day as I went out on the town with Jennifer and Jeffrey in Singapore for their engagement session. Going to places like Changi Boardwalk on the Kelong Walk or the Clarke Quay, these two looked wonderful as they found ways to constantly be close to each other. Their smiles were priceless!

It was a lovely day in Singapore and a great day to walk around the lovely areas of the city! Joining Jennifer and Jeffrey for their engagement session, I had some great ideas for places to go! Taking them to the Kelong Walk portion of the Changi Boardwalk before we went to the Clarke Quay, I couldn’t take enough pictures of this beautiful couple! At every turn they both were either laughing or cuddling together in a way that was perfect for pictures. Posing them in other ways as well, they were great to work with and made a gorgeous couple together!

The Changi Boardwalk was such a lovely area! It was gorgeous to see these two walk along the wooden paths as they were surrounded by the natural beauty of the place. Spending some time on the beach together, their love was shining just as brightly as the sun. There was a peacefulness to their relationship – one that allowed them to look content and incredibly in love! Walking through areas with trees and foliage, I loved the beautiful chemistry they had together. Posing them on one of the platforms that were often used for fishing, these two had already got their hooks of love deep into each other. With all the “fish in the sea” as the phrase goes, these two had found the perfect match in each other! They looked so wonderful as they sat together and enjoyed each other’s tender touches of affection!

After our lovely time on the boardwalk, we made our way to the Clarke Quay. Even though it didn’t have the nature found in the first location, it was still filled with interesting things to see and do. Because it had so many store fronts and interesting buildings, I was able to capture these two as they walked through the streets or had a conversation as they sat in front of an ice cream place. With smiles ever shining and their laughter filling the air, it was like a sweet sounding chime to my ears. They both were a precious couple and I will never forget the time I was able to have with them!

Melinda & Tim’s Wedding – El Adobe De Capistrano – San Juan Capistrano, California Wedding Photographer

Tim and Melinda met through a match maker (aka eHarmony) last summer. After nearly month of phone calls (lasting into the wee hours of the morning) Tim asked Melinda on their first date. An evening of dinner and laughter at Crystal Cove’s Beachcomber in Newport Beach, California turned into talking until just before Tim’s Sunday morning shift at his restaurant. And as all good romance stories go, somehow they both knew that they were both about to begin something very special.

The following week Melinda asked Tim to tag along on a business trip to San Diego. When her work was done for the day they drove to Seaport Village to take in the sights and enjoy dinner in nearby Little Italy. An after dinner stroll along the water ended near the USS Midway museum and they shared their first kiss. Fireworks literally went off in the sky (talk about timing!) and Tim joked that he would never be able to replicate that moment no matter how hard he tried. Neither one of them disclosed that they too were both experiencing fireworks on the inside!

In the months that followed Tim and Melinda began surprising each other with monthly mystery dates. Each time, trying to “out do” each other, they were able to experience many firsts together including a balloon ride over Irvine while listening to The Blind Boys of Alabama, the shark exhibit at The Long Beach Aquarium, Toy Story 3 at El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood and Melinda’s personal favorite, an interpretative dance recital at UCI. (What a good sport Tim is!)

Both Tim and Melinda recognized early on that God had His perfect hand in orchestrating their meeting, falling in love and mutual interest in spending their lives together. The old cliché it just feels so right rang true and their friends and family shared in their excitement throughout their courtship believing that they are God’s best for one another. It was an answered prayer to years and years of praying that these two souls would be blessed with one life together.

In December Melinda returned from a family Christmas in Sisters, Oregon with plans to spend New Year’s Eve with Tim. She had a sneaking suspicion that he might pop the question but had already ruined the chances of that by guessing earlier that it would be that night. Or so she thought. Tim showed up from work with an hour to spare before the clock struck midnight. Melinda was finishing the touches on a New Years cake she made (A Tiffany Blue Box cake, but of course) and Tim asked her to come join him on the couch to watch the countdown from Times Square. He said, let’s both close our eyes and when we get to 2011 we’ll open them and the first thing we will see is each other. Unsuspectedly, Melinda (for reals…. she thought it might happen on a “picnic” on New Year’s Day) obliged. And the second that 2011 arrived Melinda felt Tim grab her left hand and slip a ring on her ring finger. Girly screaming ensued as Melinda buried her head in Tim’s chest. Tim waited for the squealing to die down and said, Wait! Wait! I need to ask you a question! Melinda lifted her head off his chest and was speechless (for. the. first. time. ever) as Tim said, Melinda Marie Hughie, will you be my wife? It was really happening! The answer she squeaked out was, YES! On 1-1-11 Melinda and Tim became engaged to be married. Melinda just happened to have her camera nearby along with a manicure suited for shots of her new bling. (And what a beautiful bling Tim chose).

Congratulations to you Melinda and Tim.
