Melanie & Paul’s Romantic Airport E-Session


airport engagement session

Flight plays a big part in Melanie and Paul’s lives — and even in their proposal story — so holding their e-session in an airport by a small plane was a no-brainer. Paul, having served in the Marines where he  flew unmanned aircraft, now works at Redstone Arsenal for AAI Corporation and gives flight lessons in his spare time.  Melanie, a Civics and World History teacher, spends her weekends camping, boating and flying with Paul. They’ve gone on many mini-trips together with the plane as a method of transportation.

Let’s get to know this cute twosome a little bit better. Here’s their love story as told by the couple themselves:
Paul and Melanie met through their friends Rachel and Scott — Melanie worked with Rachel at Burningtree Country Club and Paul met Scott through flight lessons. One weekend, April 28th 2012, Rachel invited Melanie out on Paul and Scott’s boat for an event on the Tennessee River. Upon arrival to the boat, Melanie and Paul made an immediate connection.
They spent the day on the boat talking about their life stories and swimming in the cold Tennessee River. The day ended with some bluff jumping, and of course, as a result, a trip to the emergency room for Paul. Paul and Melanie ended the day together and have been together ever since. They began dating that week and the rest is history.

The romantic proposal story:

On Veteran’s Day 2012 Melanie and Paul decided to make a trip to Birmingham to spend the day together. They began the day at Bass Pro Shops and a little bit of outlet mall shopping. On the way back to Huntsville Paul asked Melanie if she wanted to take a short flight at sunset. Of course, Melanie agreed.  They took off from the Huntsville airport and headed to Madison County airport. After taking off and enjoying the sunset, Paul looked at Melanie and said “I don’t ever want you to look at another sunset without remembering how much I love you. Will you marry me?”  Melanie, of course, replied “YES!!”

How the idea for their e-session came about:
When deciding where to take engagement pictures, Melanie and Paul knew that they wanted to incorporate airports and airplanes into the pictures.  After researching different airports, they decided on Hartselle Alabama due to the airport’s ability to express the couples personalities: Paul’s love for flying and Melanie’s love for creativity and color.
