Melissa & Marc’s Boxing, Starbucks, Comics, & Retro Vegas E-session


Melissa and Marc wanted their engagement photos to encapsulate who they are 100% so they brought props — lots of them — to their shoot. All the props had significance though: boxing gloves because Melissa loves it and has been using it as her favorite way to exercise before their big day, Starbucks cups because they both love coffee (and Starbucks), superhero tees because Marc is obsessed with comics… and oh I won’t spoil it for you, you’ll just have to see for yourself.

See how cute they are? This delightful treat is courtesy of the talents of Jamie Yacksyzn of JamieY Photography (whose work longtime readers have already seen via the popular Kelly & Matt’s Bright Blue & Green Retro Video Game Wedding!). Jamie says this about the session:

Melissa & Marc are an adorable couple that are getting married in October of this year. They wanted to have their engagement session at Nelson’s Landing, which is just outside of Las Vegas. They incorporated a lot of props into their session. M&M’s because their names both start with an M, some handcuffs because he works for the police department, Starbucks cups, scotch, and even boxing gloves.

Don’t you just adore how in love they are? Melissa is actually a former news reporter who just recently opened a fashion boutique (Patty’s Closet Fashion Boutique). Marc, meanwhile is a detective for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Melissa’s here to share more:

There are so many little things that make us who we are.  We are completely OPPOSITE personalities and I feel that’s what makes us mesh well! I’m a talker and LOVE to tell stories. Marc is a listener (thank God).  Though he is a man of few words, he has the ability to make me laugh harder than anyone.  I feel like it’s a character trait that he shares with only me… and that makes me feel special.  He’s almost ten years older than I am so there is NO DRAMA in our relationship.  He is the man of my dreams.

On the hobby list… I love to box and Marc is a triathlon fanatic.  He is also obsessed with comic books!  We work opposite hours so when we do have down time together, we like to just kick back with some Starbucks and enjoy each other’s company. Our guilty pleasure is reality TV.

How cute are these two??? Melissa’s here again with the backstory for their engagement shoot:

When it came to our e-session, we really wanted for it to be different.  We don’t consider ourselves like most couples, our sense of humor is very different.  I think it stems from some of the things we witness (i.e. him as a detective and myself as a former reporter). We wanted our engagement shoot to stand out and really reflect us.  We are both obsessed with Old School Vegas and it’s why we incorporated some hard liquor into our shoot! Starbucks and comic book shirts were also on the list of “must-haves”.

While looking for a photographer, Jamie immediately caught our eye.  We both knew she was the one to capture what we envisioned.   We both wanted to be able to look back and see our personalities in the photos… and that’s what we got.  We couldn’t be happier!
