University of Dayton Engagement Session

It doesn't happen all the time, but sometimes I make connections with my couples that amaze me (especially because I'm an introvert and don't always know how to do that lol).  We might only see each other once or twice before their wedding day, but somehow they're texting me photos of their wedding dress and asking my opinion on sparklers or veils and even congratulating me on my own engagement!  When my couples 100% trust me and love my work, our connection is so much deeper and the images are so much better!  It's really that simple and beautiful, I think.  So here's to you Alex and Matt.  I'm so glad we found each other and September 22nd cannot come soon enough!!   

Rollerblade Engagement Session

These two made all my engagement session dreams I didn't even know I had come true.  Nothing like running around in some sun and finishing the night with rollerblading.  I loveee when my couples incorporate places or hobbies that mean something to them and visualize who they are as a pair.  It brings out so much more emotion and connection, and takes away some of the dumb expectations of engagement photos.  So...future couples...hint hint.  Don't be afraid to look silly or do something different for your engagement session!

These two get married in March in Grand Rapids, and I'm so freaking excited to be back in the city to document their love. <3
