We had suspicions that Mel + Charles would be fun to work with and those suspicions were confirmed immediately upon arriving at their home. It was there where they showed us a very hilarious old-timey photo of the two of them. The details are blurry but let’s just say the image certainly contained shotguns and Charles wearing only his underwear. The first shots you see below are not from some rad Bloomington park. Nope. This is their backyard. Awesome. They both are very outdoorsy and love camping and letting their dog run around (which it is wont to do). Oh, by the way, this session just happened. It’s not from an old, end-of-summer-in-Bloomington day. This was in January! The unseasonably warm weather had us feeling great but we were even more excited when Mel told us they wanted pics with her El Camino. The perfect car/truck. Utility and beauty combined. Later, we popped over to Bloomington Antique Mall and took some pics in Mel’s friend’s shop: A-Z Vintage . (BTW locals, some pretty great deals on sweet vintage hats and pearl button shirts there!). Then, as with many nights for these two, they ended up at their favorite Bloomington bar, Atlas, where we really got to see them in their element. Their summer, picnic-style Louisville wedding has us hungry and happy already. Congrats Mel + Charles!
