Melody here, trying to catch up on our blog before school resumes! This takes us back to an engagement session, which will shortly be followed with an entry dedicated to their wedding.
Chris and Danielle met with us on an afternoon in early June at UOP for their e-session. In all honestly, UOP is not our favorite location, mostly because so many photographers take portraits there. But we set off with this beautiful couple in an attempt to take portraits that reflected them, rather than displaying the campus.
And when I say that they are a beautiful couple, I truly mean it - they are beautiful, inside and out. Chris is a police officer and previously was awarded the Purple Heart twice while serving our military in the Middle East. Obviously, this is one brave fellow! He is also Danielle's Prince Charming, which is obvious from the way he looks at her.
He is not the only brave one in the relationship. Danielle was diagnosed with cancer, and it was under those circumstances that their relationship grew. From the loving way Chris interacts with his betrothed, it is clear that he absolutely adores Danielle, and that she has found someone who will protect, love, and honor her.
And Danielle? She is a crack-up! She has so much personality, it is no wonder she is a Lucille Ball fan - heck, she might give Lucy a run for her money! I was impressed by her radiant and charming disposition, as well as her infectious laughter and smile. It is easy to see why Chris became so enchanted with her!
If you think they are a sweet couple here, just wait for their wedding blog. I have never been to such an emotional wedding, where the joy was so tangible. Just wait - you will see what I mean!
