Sam + Asher's Rustic Country Engagement in Coldwater, Michigan

Sam and Asher had me out to their incredibly lovely property a couple years ago to photograph their engagements in Coldwater. I was so excited because it combined so many of my favorite elements in one place! Dilapidated rusty barn perfection, forest, field, and a small shallow lake, I was literally in heaven. Not only was their property so great but Sam and Asher were pretty amazing to work with as well! Their natural connection and lovey-ness made for some really great shots. Prepare yourselves, because this is quite a large post BUT I don't think doing a small one would be feasible, there were just too many photos I LOVED from this session! 

Sarah and Dean's Eclectic and Artistic Wedding in Marshall, MI

Sarah and Dean are another couple who we are lucky to call our friends who were married in 2016! Of course, we were over the moon when they inquired about us shooting their day at The Olde Farmhouse Barn in Marshall, MI. Sarah and Dean took a little bit of a non-traditional spin on their day, foregoing a lot of traditions and instead focused on a short sentimental ceremony, and lots of time being present, enjoying THEIR day with guests. I loved this approach because they weren't shuffling from one thing to the next, and were able to be present and enjoy their whole day, and it gave us a lot of freedom to tell the story of their day without interruption. They incorporated a lot of geometric touches + a little bit of a boho feel with the florals and colors, and their wardrobe had a sophisticated vintage inspiration. Sarah is very talented + artistic and her vision for their day came together beautifully, she even hand crafted their favor geometric magnets! (Still my favorite magnets EVER! SO CUTE) Overall I think this is one of our favorite days we have captured because it was truly a representation of Sarah and Dean's personalities and aesthetic and was truly their own.

Kaitlin + Chris' Adventurous Seven Lakes State Park Engagement

Kaitlin and Chris's engagement session was definitely one of our favorites of 2016. They are such an amazingly adventurous free spirited couple (currently traveling the world) and were up for anything we wanted to do at the session! Seven Lakes State Park in Holly, MI  was such an awesome spot for these! We had the whole park pretty much to ourselves so that was about the best thing we could have asked for! We ran everywhere around the park, danced, and took some amazing shots in the water! My favorite part of these is the connection Kaitlin and Chris have, you can just feel the love vibes!!!!
