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!

Jessica & Tyler {St. Patrick's Park}

We met Jessica & Tyler at the Bread & Chocolate Bridal Show in Goshen, IN a month ago. They were drawn for our engagement session giveaway. We met up at St. Patrick's County Park in South Bend, IN. The sun was out alllll day until about 10 minutes before our session! Luckily the rain held off and we roamed around the park as I captured these two sweet love for each other!

These two are such wonderful and kind human beings! There love for each other was so evident the moment I started snapping! It was a complete joy photographing these two!

We are way over the snow and cold! However, we are sort of IN LOVE with photographing in it. And are simply loving this winter themed engagement shoot!

I met up with Shelby & Greg at the Creek Ridge County Park in Michigan City, IN. These two braved the cold and snow and looked absolutely adorable doing it! They are so very kind and were so wonderful to work with!

We love engagement sessions! There is something so amazing getting to capture the love and excitement that a couple shares in the time after they get engaged. This is so true with this amazing shoot with Summer and Micheal! They are such a cute couple and the love they share just oozes through these pictures. They seriously are relationship goals! 

We met Summer and Micheal in Chicago, Illinois at the Lincoln Park Zoo and then took a walk over to the beautiful lake shore. While the backdrop was spectacular, the love these two shared totally upstaged the Windy City! 

Summer and Micheal met at their first job out of high school and the rest was history! This sweet couple have been together for three and a half years. One evening at sunset, Micheal took Summer to Homer Lake in Illinois, the location of their first date, and popped the question! 

We seriously loved being able to capture this amazing moment in their lives and can't wait to see what life has in store for these two. The happy couple will be getting married in December and we cannot wait! We are so excited for them and we wish them all the best!
