I can't help but smile when I meet a couple who fit together so perfectly, and Dave & Brooke were the sweetest. This adorable couple is getting married next fall and it was lovely to meet them and capture their engagement session on a beautiful September day, right at the start of sweater season! (My favorite!) Keep scrolling to see more- including their two dogs who joined the fun!
It was such a beautiful summer evening to photograph Preston & Aubrey's engagement photos, along with their little dog Kiya, and explore the woods & beach at Camp Agawam where they'll be married next year! I enjoyed this mini-adventure and think they make a gorgeous couple. Here are a few of my favorites from their session!
I can't get enough of these photos! This lovely couple is getting married next year and it was so fun to spend an evening with them on a beautiful summer day. I loved the dress Megan chose, and the sparkle of that diamond on her tiny size 3 finger! Check out the fun variety of photos from their engagement session below!
I was excited when Todd & Amy chose to shoot their Engagement Session at Stony Creek Metropark in Shelby Twp! It's a place that they've both enjoyed visiting for many years, and also happens to have a number of beautiful and unique locations. Check out this adorable couple and their featured photos below! I especially loved the romantic field of flowers at the end!
Fall engagement sessions are so great! Especially when they include beautiful leaves, a sparkly ring, and a redhead in cowgirl boots! Greg & Nicole were full of smiles and so fun to work with. We couldn't have asked for a more gorgeous fall day! Read on to see some of my favorites from this session.
Austen proposed to Stephanie in May at one of their favorite places... Disney! When she contacted me to set up a summer engagement session she wanted photos taken on campus at Oakland University where they first met and recently graduated from, as well as photos at the beautiful historic mansion where they happen to work. I was super excited about the opportunity to shoot at Meadow Brook Hall and Gardens- what a gorgeous place! And when I met this adorable couple I was even more excited. Stephanie has such a bubbly personality, and Austen was a real champ for putting up with us as we took a crazy amount of photos all over the grounds! Here are some of my favorites, and I'll do my best to narrow it down to a small handful but I'm not making any promises! ;-)
This couple!! They are so much fun! I have known Christie for several years and was so excited when she & Josh announced their engagement. I was thrilled and honored when she asked me to photograph their wedding & engagement session! We sat down together to discuss the details and I asked them if there were any meaningful places or themes they would like to incorporate in their session. A handful of great ideas were thrown around and in the end we decided to shoot them ALL! Why not?! So the collection of highlights you'll see below are like a mega-session that we took at 4 locations over the span of a single evening, ending with waiting for sunset at the dock. The results were better than I could have imagined, thanks to this couple's relaxed & fun-loving presence. Her mom summed it up perfectly when she saw the entire gallery and posted, "I love their love!"
