East Lansing engagement session: Shannon & Cory

12.20.18 - engagements by Kristin G.

Shannon+Cory are super cool, so it was only fitting that we began their engagement session inside Spartan Stadium. To say they are HUGE MSU fans would be a severe understatement, so I found myself standing there smiling while watching Cory light up as he ran around the field not only with his bride-to-be, but also their sweet pup! After taking that all in, we walked around MSU’s campus, chatting away and allowing all the students to stop and pet their furry babe. It was so much fun getting to know these two and they have such a chill vibe about them, it made me super excited to shoot their wedding next year. Congrats to this amazing couple! xo

Planterra wedding: Katie & Ryan

12.20.18 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

Winter Weddings at Planterra are often among my favorite, both because the venue is so amazing and because that venue always seems to attract my favorite type of clients, and Katie and Ryan were no exception. They’re both super laid-back, absolutely hilarious, and really really nice. They really didn’t want to see one another before the ceremony, but when they realized not doing so would mean only having nighttime photos together they changed their mind. BUT, they were so against it being traditional, and in their opinion a cheesy, first look moment and they wanted to do it differently, and so they gave each other a high-five when they first saw each other, which they said was so very “them”. They both looked amazing on their wedding day, and Katie’s gown was absolute perfection. It had been very grey and cloudy for weeks leading up to their wedding, but the sun came out for their day which enabled us to take some beautiful backlit outdoor photos. Their bridal party was all super nice, and the kids in their wedding were adorable. I always love the floral decor at Planterra, which of course is not surprising. Bluewater Kings Band rocked the dance floor for rest of the night. And I must give kudos to the videography crew, Killer Creations, because they were awesome to work with. Congrats to this awesome and gorgeous couple!!!

Stoney creek engagement session: Leah & Kevin

12.20.18 - engagements by Stephanie

I had such an amazing time photographing Leah and Kevin’s engagement session. The couple is absolutely adorable, and the photo shoot was full of laughs!

We were lucky enough to have scheduled their session on the day of the first snowfall of winter. And, because Leah had chosen to be photographed at Stony Creek Metro Park, there was no shortage of beautiful scenery in which to capture this gorgeous duo.

Leah and Kevin were truly up for anything. They remained good humored despite me asking them to trek all over the park for the most perfect of backdrops. There even came a point when I asked them to sit on the ground for one of my favorite shots of the session. Despite the frigid temperatures, they never stopped smiling!

I absolutely cannot wait to photograph Leah and Kevin on their big day! Congratulations you two!

Northville engagement session: Becky & Peter

12.19.18 - engagements by Courtney

Becky and Peter’s Engagement session was the perfect fall adventure. We started out with cider and donuts at Parameters cider mill in Northville. It was the perfect weather for snuggling and a brisk walk along the river. These two looked totally adorable! I loved the added touches of personalized mugs and cozy blanket that Becky thought to bring.
For a little variety, they did a quick change and we headed downtown for a little more formal vibe. These two made my job delightful and I cannot wait until their wedding day. Congratulations Becky and Peter.

Detroit Engagement Session: Caitlin & Preston

12.12.18 - engagements by Stephanie

Caitlin and Preston’s engagement shoot was nothing short of amazing.

Caitlin had arranged for the couple’s session to take place at one of my favorite venues to photograph- The Detroit Institute of Arts! If you’ve never been, you MUST go!!! The architecture is reminiscent of a castle and serves as the perfect backdrop to a romantic photo shoot.

The two were so much fun, and the session was full of laughs. It was a bit muddy that day. Never one to let a bit of dirt get in my way, I happily laid on the ground in order to capture angles that showcased the true beauty of the couple and their chosen setting.

Despite my muddy appearance, Caitlin and Preston tolerated my many posing and location requests. I had blast with this duo, and am excited to capture what is sure to be a beautiful winter wedding!
