We're Melissa and Arturo Gonzalez. We are college sweethearts that met in student engineering organizations in the Fall of 2009. After 6 years of dating, we were married in July of 2016 in a beautiful plantation house outside of San Antonio. Less than a year after our wedding we rediscovered our passion for photography and now we are pursuing our dreams together as Wedding and Portrait Photographers & Videographers!
We were both engineering students at the University of Texas at San Antonio. It was in December of 2009, when I was having a difficult moment around finals and Arturo offered a comforting hug. From that moment on we became best friends.
In February, we went on our first date, movies and ice cream. It was in front of the ice cream shop that Arturo asked me to be his girlfriend, it was then and there that we had our last first kiss! We still remember that day like it was yesterday and we visit that ice cream shop every year on our anniversary.
Over the years we have both grown so much individually and together in love. From college life, to getting our first jobs, planning our wedding and getting married. It has been such an amazing time in our lives and we continue to grow more in love with each other with every passing day.
Genesis 2:24 tells us that a man will leave his father and mother and he will stick to his wife, and they will become one flesh. Marriage is a beautiful arrangement that has been instituted by God. We feel that the relationship you have with your spouse is the second most important relationship you could ever have with another human being. Second to your relationship with Our Loving Father.
Your wedding day is a celebration of your love. It is a celebration of the beginning of your marriage. It is a celebration of your new family.
