Engagement Shoot: Photography by Melissa Bergen

Several weeks ago, Eric and I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with our friend-slash-wedding photographer, Melissa Bergen.

Since this was the first time that Eric and I had taken legit photos, we were both pretty nervous about how the day was going to go. Neither of us really knew how to "make love to the camera" (Remember when Tootie said that on The Facts of Life?) and we were both sure that we did NOT want staged, fakey, prom-like poses. You know the kind I'm talking about. Borrrrring.

We knew how we wanted our photos to look- aged and candid with a touch of American Gothic and Flowers in the Attic- and Melissa made it happen.

The day ended up going by so fast and we had such a great time, we were actually bummed when it was over! Melissa has this super calm way about her and she got straight to business without us even knowing. Not once were we posed or asked to do something cheesy or generic.

She got so many great shots, we had a hard time narrowing down our selections.

Here are a few of our favorites...

We LOVE our photos and can't wait to see what she does on our big day!

If you're looking for a photographer- she does all types of shoots- in the greater LA area, I'd highly recommend contacting Melissa. She's affordable, super easy to work with, and takes great photos!
