When it's 10 degrees outside you skip being outside in the bitter cold and enjoy the beauty of a nice warm studio. I honestly don't have the chance to shoot in the studio as much as you'd think, so when they told me they fell in love with my studio and had that vision for their engagement session I was pumped. Every couple has such a special and unique love story, I really enjoyed meeting Julie and Sam, laughing together, and just hearing more about their love story. These two are proof that meeting on Tinder can lead you to your soul mate ;)

On a cold snowy day with temps around 10ºF, this sessions makes me miss the warmth and color of a Michigan fall. We had a gorgeous fall evening earlier this fall for Brianna and Taylor's engagement session. I love their never too serious always up for fun spirit and just the way they look at each other. Wedding day will be epic, can't wait!
I spent the evening hanging out with these two in downtown Holland, then we travled out to Tunnel Park for sunset on the beach. Scott and Amanda are perfect together. You can see the love between them just by the way they look at each other. There were so many fun and silly moments, which meant I got to capture the real, genuine, fun-loving spirit between these two. Can't wait for wedding day in just a few short weeks!
I traveled down to Nashville, TN for Marcus and Ashley's engagement session at the very start of spring, and while it still felt gray, brown, and bleak in Michigan, as I drove further south, trees turned green, blossoms were blooming, and the sunshine was so warm and refreshing (oddly enough it snowed here in Michigan the day of my return...thanks Michigan for your warm welcome back). But that wasn't the only reason why their engagement session was amazing. Ashley and Marcus are the sweetest people you'll ever meet, they have all that sweet southern hospitality and charm. They pre-planned a wonderful day for our shoot and showed us around the Nashville area while we hung out and got to know each other a little better. We began the day at the Carnton Plantation in historic Franklin TN, which is an incredibly beautiful place to visit, hopefully I've given it justice in these photos. We even wandered into downtown Franklin for lunch at a old pharmacy turned restaurant for a bite before then heading downtown Nashville for more amazing backdrops for pictures. Couldn't have asked for a better trip, it was truly awesome to spend the day with two incredible people who love each other deeply and document their love in the place they call home. Thank you both for inviting me down, I can't wait to see you again for wedding day!
