Melissa and Elijah first met in middle school when Melissa first approached Elijah to borrow a dollar. “Hey kid! Do you have a dollar I can borrow?” Elijah obliged and gave her two instead. Little did they know Elijah’s nice gesture would eventually lead them together down the road. It wasn’t until high school that they became officially together when Elijah had asked Melissa to be his girlfriend through a letter. About six years later, they had a beautiful daughter, Sophia. And on Christmas Day 2012, Elijah proposed to Melissa. The cute couple plan to get married later this year! When the opportunity arose to photograph this beautiful family and a ’57 Chevy Bel-Air, I didn’t hesitate one bit!
