Mel + Max • San Antonio Engagement Photography

(((Drumroll Please…))) Meet Mel and Max!  (How cute do those names sound together, BTW? I love it!) I had so much fun with these guys, and I think you’re gonna love ’em as much as I do. Here are a few fun facts about them — number 4 is my favorite!

1.) How they met: Max and Mel were set up by a mutual friend of their moms (because our mamas always know best, duh.)

2.) They’ve been dating for almost 2 years, and they were long-distance for 10 months of that time (Max was here in San Antonio, Mel was in Dallas).

3.) What they do: Max is a co-owner of a men’s clothing store on the Riverwalk (which explains his awesome sense of style!) Mel is a Speech-Language Pathologist that works with kiddos.

4.) Their proposal story (in a nutshell): After buying their first house together (but before they moved in), Max decided to take advantage of their new / big / empty living room. With the help of family members on his side and Mel’s side, he went all-out with the romantic decor (we’re talking candles and a giant heart on the living room floor made out of rose petals, y’all!) One night, he tricked Mel into coming to the house with him. When she went inside, she was greeted by a violinist playing all of their favorite songs. Max proposed, she said YES, and they danced to the violinist’s version of “We Are The Champions” by Queen (love that!) Then, all of their family members came out of their hiding spot and to congratulate them and pop the champagne!

Here are my favorites from their engagement session at The Pearl Brewery here in San Antonio. I hope you love them as much as I do!
