Melvin & Sam

When we shot the ISU MBB poster last Fall, Melvin approached me about potentially taking some photos with his girlfriend to commemorate their time at Iowa State before they move on to their next adventure. Last weekend we were able to meet up for a quick shoot while the couple was back in Ames for Melvin's graduation. Having photographed Melvin several times in the context of being a beast on the basketball court, it was cool to hang out with him in a softer context and to finally meet Sam!
