Rock Ledge Ranch Engagement Session

We were thankful for some beautiful weather at Rock Ledge Ranch last Friday for this engagement session with Shelby and Alex! We hadn’t had the chance to interact with them much before their engagement session – so first off I have to say kudos to Shelby and Alex (especially Alex) for showing up to have your picture taken by people you don’t really know! Shelby made a smart move by bringing along her sis Samantha to hang out and help touch up make-up, hold bags, carry drinks, etc. We found out later that Samantha had been taking pictures of US taking photos of Shelby and Alex during the session! (see them at the bottom!!)

This couple was really fun to hang out with – Alex totally mastered the “nuzzle” as we call it in posing and Shelby had a gorgeous model face down. Thank you guys for taking the time to do this session with us and for trusting us to take your engagement photos – we are excited for you as you begin the adventure of marriage and wish you the very best! And also thanks for the sushi recommendation, we’re going to have to try that out one of these date nights…!

We kept telling Alex that he had to “protect” Shelby from the sunlight during this part of the session and he totally nailed it here! Seriously, not an ounce of direct sun is hitting her face!

I was sooo happy to get this ring shot with these pretty pink flowers while they were still around! I LOVE the pink trees but they only stick around a couple weeks and this was on my bucket list.

I think this is my favorite image from the session! (I love the color version too, but Shelby’s eyes look amazing here in black and white!)

Thank you Samantha for a behind the scenes look at a session! Tyler and I were laughing so hard trying to remember the last time I climbed on his shoulders to get a fun shot! It comes in handy working with your spouse.

Thank you Shelby and Alex for trusting us to take your engagement photos, we had a lot of fun with you!

All our best,

Tyler & Melanie
