Melissa + Evan's Marriage Proposal

It all started when Melissa decided to take Evan's hat from him when they were kids.  They've both been showing horses since a young age, even competing against each other.  With so many memories at the Kalamazoo County Fairgrounds, it just made sense for that to be the special place where Evan would propose to Melissa.  He lead her in blindfolded, got down on one knee in the middle of a heart made of flower pedals, and asked her to marry him.  I'm so glad Evan asked me to be his photographer!

Michelle + José Wedding Engagement

So excited to be Michelle and Josè's wedding photographer this July.  They will be getting married at Laurel Manor in Livonia, MI July of 2018.  I had to post a few highlights from their engagement shoot last Fall.  We did two engagement sessions and working with them was really fun, they made my job so easy.  I really didn't give much direction, most of their poses were very natural and they laughed together through the entire session.  Our first session was in Glenn, Michigan at a local vineyard.  We found an old barn to shoot in, then walked through the vineyard for the rest of the session.  The second shoot took place at Lincoln Park in Chicago, IL.   

Karen + James Engagement II

Just a few more from Karen and James.  We did two engagement shoots, so this one was a short session.  We really wanted to catch the last of the apple blossoms so we ran out to VerHage Fruit Farms in Kalamazoo.  They're getting married in October at the Blodgett Wedding Barn in Schoolcraft, Michigan. 

Karen + James

Karen and James helped me clear the dust off my gear for my first engagement session of the year.  As you can see, it's spring time here in Kalamazoo, trees are in bloom, and love is in the air!  This is the first of two sessions, here at the always beautiful Kalamazoo Nature Center arboretum.  Their wedding is taking place in October 2018 at the Blodgett Wedding Barn in Schoolcraft, MI.
