Halie & Tyler | Starved Rock State Park Adventure

Halie and Tyler answered our Starved Rock model call a couple months back. They were a perfect fit for what we were looking for! They are adventurous and fun and take a beautiful photo! 

I met up with them at Starved Rock State Park in Oglesby, IL at the beginning of June. These two came all the way from Newaygo, MI!  It was such a HOT and humid day but these two hiked with me for a couple of hours and were such troopers! It was so great to get to know Halie and Tyler. Their love for each other was so sweet and they made my job that much easier! 

Congrats to this wonderful couple on their recent engagemnt!!

Lauren & Nicole {Round Barn Winery and Weko Beach}

We first met Lauren and Nicole earlier this year, at a bridal show we were privileged to be a part of in South Bend. But, as our worlds collided, I actually recognized Nicole, who used to work at one of our favorite coffee shops in downtown South Bend! We absolutely LOVED chatting with them about how they met and about their special day, which is right around the corner, in November!

It was a steamy day for their engagement session back in June, but it turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous one! We first ventured to the Round Barn Winery in Baroda, Michigan, where these lovelies sampled some of the wonderful wines! We were greeted with such kindness at the winery and I have to give a shout out to my friend Michael, and the amazing staff there, who helped us out, and even let us stay a little bit longer past their closing time! Such great people!!! From there, we adventured to Weko Beach, where a dip in the lake was a perfect ending to such a wonderful evening! 

These two ladies are so incredibly sweet. Not to mention ... so very much in love! It was a joy spending some time with them and sharing in some wonderful moments! And we can't wait to celebrate in their wedding day!!

Dool Family | University of Notre Dame

Met this beautiful family back in May, on the campus of Notre Dame. Kelsey, the fabulous gal in the cap and gown, graduated this year, and her entire family came to celebrate her amazing achievements!

But ... before the festivities began, we had some fun with photos with the entire gang!

This family was such a blast, and it was so much fun making some memories with them! HUGE congrats to Kelsey and the whole family!!! :)

Feller Family {Belmont Mansion} Nashville, TN

Our last day in Nashville, we ventured to the absolutely gorgeous Belmont Mansion, which sits on the campus of Belmont University. If you've never been, and you're in the area, you must visit! It's a stunning backdrop for some fun family photos! ;) 

I've known this sweet, beautiful lady for quite some time, and it was SO NICE seeing her, introducing her to my sis, and adventuring with her gorgeous family! And goodness ... these sweet kiddos. Some of the kindest kids on the planet! But it's no wonder why they're so darn sweet, with a momma and dad who are the epitome of kindness and love. :) 

Grateful for the time spent with them and for the adventure!!!
