We’ve got Chaffin Cade Photography to thank for this gorgeous e-session. And gorgeous doesn’t even seem to do it justice. It’s one part natural, one part vintage, and a whole lot of romance. Oh, and that lighting! Could it be any more perfect for this adorable couple? We don’t think so, but we are beyond glad it showed up for their love shoot. Click here for even more pretty. 


From Chaffin Cade PhotographyWhen Melissa and Garcel described the shoot they wanted, we knew just the location. We had scouted Franklin Canyon before and were just dying to use it for an engagement session. It’s this gorgeous, forest-y, in-the-middle-of-nowhere type of park, with trees, small fields and a lake! It’s actually where they filmed the intro for the Andy Griffith show. Melissa and Garcel’s fun and relaxed attitude made for such a great day, and the lacy vintage parasol fit right in!
