Erin & Hannah {Fisherman's Island} Charlevoix, Michigan

It was in August when my sister Erin’s girlfriend Hannah pulled me aside at one of our hang outs, to tell me she had plans to propose to my sister. She asked for my blessing, and I was overwhelmed with gratitude that she would ask me. Such a question is humbling, and it just shows the kind of woman Hannah is … ❤️

But it wasn’t until the end of September that she popped the big question, and I jumped at the chance to be there, alongside of them both, for one of the biggest moments of their lives.

She decided to propose at their favorite spot, on the beach at Fisherman's Island, in Charlevoix, Michigan. The weather was quite questionable when I got there, but the winds calmed, and as they danced to their favorite song, the sun started to peak from behind the clouds ... Hannah got down on one knee and made my sister the happiest girl in the world.

It was an honor to be there, for such a beautiful moment, and I’m so incredibly grateful that these two found each other in this crazy world. Love is truly, all you need to change the world. And I think these two can change it with how fiercely they love each other!

Congratulations Erin and Hannah. May you continue to set each other's souls on fire. ❤️

Emily & Lucas

We met Emily & Lucas in downtown South Bend a few months ago. We had coffee and chatted more about their big day next year, which will be at one of our favorite venues in the area, the Bread & Chocolate in Goshen, Indiana! We instantly thought these two were super rad, and incredibly kind-hearted.

Fast forward to October … it was a beautiful fall day for their engagement session, and we headed to the riverwalk in downtown Mishawaka. The lighting couldn’t have been more perfect and these two absolutely knocked our socks off with how incredibly comfortable they were in front of the camera! When we first met this gorgeous duo, they told us they were pretty camera shy. But as you can tell … the moment the camera went up, their inner model emerged. WOWSA! So beautiful … inside and out!

We are so very thankful our paths have crossed and we get to document their love. Congratulations you beautiful, kind souls!

Loved spending some time with them a few weeks ago, on a beautiful fall evening, adventuring around St. Patrick’s County Park, in South Bend!

Such a beautiful couple ... and seriously … so sweet! They’re going to be incredible parents! Congrats you gorgeous souls.

We met up at St. Patrick’s Park in South Bend and ventured around. Little Lucy was all about the photos and I couldn’t of been happier. I am so thankful we get to meet amazing clients like the Kirkland family!! <3
