SoHo Love: Happy Engagement Melinda and Jeffery!

Melinda and Jeffery are an amazing couple. Strong, sweet, and full of laughter.

I met them in SoHo for their engagement session along Crosby and Howard Streets.

Melinda shares how they met at school in South Carolina, “We met more than twenty two years ago. Just two kids in high school gym class on an otherwise boring day until we caught each other’s eye. Soon gym class became the most important subject of the day and high school took on an altogether new meaning. Jeffrey used to carry my books to every class and I doodled his name on every notebook I owned. Even then, he treated me like a princess. I was the only high school girl who received dozens of red roses at cheerleading practice on a weekly basis. He is my first love and now my last and forever love.”

Jeffery proposed to Melinda at a restaurant in New York City in June. They will be getting married this fall.


Congratulations Melina and Jeffery!

Melinda’s Dress: J. Crew
