Melanie + James = Engaged!

This particular engagement session is very special for me because Melanie and James are two very close friends of mine. I knew them both before they were a couple. They started out as best friends and that friendship developed into something more, and we all couldn’t be happier about it! These two are getting married next year in their home state of Georgia, and while I requested to NOT be their wedding photographer (I prefer to party and celebrate at close friends’ weddings), I was excited when they asked me to shoot their engagement session. I love these two, so of course I wanted to get them in front of my camera!

Melanie is a casting director and works on the Warner Bros. lot, and James is a film editor. So, it was only fitting that we shoot their session at the fun backdrops that the Warner Bros. lot provides. It was so nice to shoot in city streets without having to shoot around other people! ;) If I had my druthers I’d do all my engagement shoots in such a location!

James and Melanie, we love you guys so much! We are so thrilled you two are getting married and we can’t wait to celebrate!

  • Jessica - Wow, this is awesome!!!!! Love the shots, Heidi. So them. Congrats Melanie and James!

  • Megan Welker - Heidi. Dang. These are beautiful! Wouldn’t it be a dream to shoot there every time you needed a city feel?! Swoon!

  • Courtney Brandt - Of course – I love every moment of this shoot! And what fond memories I have of the the lot. Can’t wait to show you and Chris around Athens next year. :)

  • Tracy - Stunning! I was wondering why the streets were so empty, it was bewildering!

  • Printcopia Canvas Print Giveaway | Heidi Ryder Photography: The Blog - […] Printcopia was kind enough to send me my own canvas to check out the quality, which was perfect timing because we recently moved and my new office needs pretty things for its bare walls. I decided on one of my favorite shots from Melanie and James’ WB lot engagement session. […]

  • Christine Brungard - Wow! Your photos are amazing. I love the lot! I used to work there too. I was wondering if you had any tips on whether or not I would be able to have an engagement photo taken there. I just want one photo in front of the theater. Thank you!
