Pickens Engagement Shoot

by Cassie Lynn

I’d like to introduce the future Mr. and Mrs. Pickens and their baby boy Cole! Tim and Mel are tying the knot next summer, but first thing’s first…the engagement photos with their adorable little guy! 


I’ve known Melody for about 5 years now. She was actually my boss when we met, but she certainly never felt like my boss. I’d have to say that she is one of the most kind, optimistic and goal driven people I know, and there’s no doubt in my mind that’s part of why Tim loves her so much. They really are such a great couple together (not to mention adorable!).



Here is a cute little tidbit that I was able to learn about their love story; Cole got to help propose to mommy by being the one that held the ring when Tim popped the question! Above is the attempt at a reenactment of Cole holding mommy’s beautiful ring (which is a family heirloom by the way).

A great time was had by all, but I especially enjoyed getting to know a little bit more about their relationship, so I can prepare to photograph their wedding day next summer! Stay tuned for more of Mel, Tim, and Cole!
