Birmingham engagement session: Amy & ryan

11.17.17 - engagements by Courtney

I’ve known Amy for a few years so I was absolutely thrilled when I got the chance to photograph her engagement session. She and Ryan are a great match and we had a lot of fun walking around Downtown Birmingham. They have a love that is so clear between them.

It was a chilly, rainy day but we managed to find a dry hour and the cold just made for better snuggles. I loved their choice of outfits, Amy and Ryan you guys rocked it. Congratulations on your engagement!

cranbrook engagement session: natalie & Andy

11.17.17 - engagements by Courtney

I was super excited I got the chance to meet up with Natalie and Andy while they were in town from New York. We ended up with a gorgeous day, at a gorgeous location, and a gorgeous couple. These two are so sweet and the second they start interacting with one another, they completely light up with joy. We had the chance to photograph their session at Cranbrook and honestly, I could have stayed all day.
I always love the story of how couples meet. They both grew up in Michigan (and surely crossed paths along the way) but it took them living over 600 miles from home to find one another. A perfect example of “meant to be!”
Congratulations and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.

Ann Arbor Engagement session: Chelsea & Dan

11.17.17 - engagements by Courtney

Chelsea and Dan are such a sweet couple. We met up in Ann Arbor at the arboretum for their engagement session and the day couldn’t have been better. They looked fantastic and as I snapped away I could easily tell from behind my camera how happy this couple is. They had the cutest smiles on their faces as the wind gently blew leaves off the trees as they enjoyed our walk in the woods.

They told me the cute story of how they met and how their first date was setup for coffee, on Easter, so they both had an out if the date went badly. Obviously, the date went super well and not only do I adore this story but I love that they wore their “first date shirts” during their engagement session!

To top it off they brought their adorable dogs for a few photos. I love dogs so like I said this day couldn’t have been better. Congratulations you two, I can’t wait until your day.

Ann Arbor Engagement session: coreen & cory

11.17.17 - engagements by Courtney

If you’d ever want to see me fumble around with names, Cory and Coreen’s engagement session was the one to watch. At one point I didn’t know who I was telling what, I got so tongue tied! Cory and Coreen luckily were so easy going and laughed with me through it all. Since they were in town from Chicago and the day was stormy, we chose to go inside the Matthaei Botanical Gardens in Ann Arbor. It’s a wonderful option for a rainy day and we even lucked out with a little sunshine near the end of their session for a few photos outside with the fall leaves.
These two have such beautiful, happy smiles that exponentially grow when the look at one another. They are a joy to photograph and I am thrilled I get to do it again on the wedding day. Congratulations to you both.

The Henry ford museum wedding: Katelyn & peter

11.14.17 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

When a gorgeous couple holds their ceremony and reception at two of my favorite places, it makes my heart happy! We started the day at the lovely home of Katelyn’s parents for the ladies’ getting ready, and then we headed over to St. Hugo of the Hills. Not only is the light that shines into St. Hugo absolutely gorgeous, but Katelyn and Peter’s ceremony was beautiful as well. The way that he looks at her is so sweet, and they were clearly surrounded and supported by numerous close friends and family. The Henry Ford Museum always provides so many great backdrops for photos and a unique setting for a reception. Katelyn and Peter held their cocktail hour in the car court, and then they had an awesome acapella group greet their guests as they all transitioned into the reception area, which definitely got their guests ready to party. I loved the bold decor of palm leaves combined with white glowey accents by Breath of Spring. Their band, Your Generation, was super fun and felt more like a concert (in a good way). And none of it would have come together as perfectly without their incredible planner, Carolyn Hefner of The China Closet. Congratulations to this awesome couple - I know you’ll have so much fun together forever!
