{Melissa + Nick} Engagement Pre-Wedding Photography; Portland, Oregon

Dear Nicholas,

As we countdown to our wedding day, I am amazed at how much we’ve grown together. Ups & downs, rifts & bonds…we’ve built such a solid foundation that I – for once in my life – am sure of something.

What I am sure of is that our love is true, deep, and everlasting. Our friendship is the tie that binds and I know that bond is forever. You are my solidity, my strength, my lover, and my one and only. I look forward to becoming your wife – standing side by side no matter what life has in store. I couldn’t imagine a more loving, respectful, passionate partner to enter into the rest of the days of my life with. I love you with all my heart and soul.


Your angel,
