New York Botanical Garden | Melanie + Quintin

April 11, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

There are so many reasons I love what I do.  For instance last weekend I discovered a place I had never been, actually never even knew existed.  I spent the day with an incredible couple I had not yet met, but whom now I would consider great friends.  It was the kind of day you leave feeling full of happy.  This couple, Melanie + Quintin have one pretty amazing love story and by doing engagement photos at the New York Botanical Garden, I was able to add one small chapter to it.  

I can't share every amazing detail of this epic relationship, this is a blog not a novel, but I could sum it up this way: this couple met in high school, had started dating in college, dated for 10 years while living in different states, and then were reconnected after spending five years apart, only to be engaged after one year back together.  Even though they were young when they first met, they both knew they were each "the one" immediately.  Quintin didn't have that normal teenage boy kind of crush, it was that "do whatever I have to do to be with her" kind of love.  Um and oh yes I have to throw in the fact that Melanie's father kept a stuffed animal Quintin had given her back in 1999 and gave it back to him to include in his proposal.  Which he did with a voice recording asking her to marry him. {Has your heart melted yet??!}  

These two compliment each other so beautifully.  You can clearly see the kind of love, respect and admiration they both have for each other.  They are still so madly head over heels in love which made these photos a breeze!  Case in point:  Asking Quintin to describe his three favorite things about Melanie and he named five.  Couldn't pick just three!  

The New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx was a new experience for me, and I was so happy Melanie chose there the second I walked in.  There was a variety of scenery, and beauty everywhere we looked.  Aside from the gorgeous flowers, there were a couple spots to grab some photos in front of cool doors and stone houses, which Quintin was a fan of.  

Melanie + Quintin will be marrying each other this September {finally ;) } at the Bee + Thistle Inn and I absolutely can not wait to celebrate with them.  Enjoy a little sneak peek of your photos Melanie + Quintin. xoxo
