Seth & Fei {The Veranda @ The Whitcomb | St. Joesph, Michigan}

We met Seth and Fei in 2015 for their engagement session at Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana. {You can view their engagement session here.} Seth and Fei both went to Culver and also met there and fell in love! They are true high school sweethearts!

When we first met them we saw right away the love they shared. They were so sweet and playful with each other and they are so natural in front of the camera. We roamed around Culver, hearing their sweet stories about their time there. After spending time with them, we just knew their wedding was going to be awesome! 

This past July, after 7 years of being together, they tied the knot!  Although it was scorcher, it was such a sweet and beautiful day! A lot of Fei's family came all the way from China to be there. How wonderful they could all be together for such a joyous occasion! 

Before Fei walked down the isle, she had a surprise for her soon to be husband. In Chinese tradition, the groom and his groomsmen have to play door games before the groom is allowed to see his soon to be bride. Seth and the majority of the guests had no idea! It was pretty hilarious and so unique to any wedding we have photographed! 

The rest of the the evening was filled with love, laughter, and lots and lots of dancing! This crowd was so fun and everyone was so very sweet! Such a beautiful day with such a beautiful and sweet couple!!

And can we give Fei some mad props for creating ALL of the details including the amazing cake! Say what? The girl is talented!!

David & Carlee {Tiscornia Beach | St. Joseph, Michigan}

Ventured to St. Joseph, Michigan a few weeks ago, to photograph these two lovelies. They have transformed themselves the past 6/7 months and I have to say, WOWSA! They both look amazing!

Love brings out the best in people. We see it all the time. It's a beautiful thing. And we are grateful to see and photograph such TRUE love.

Laini Taylor is a wonderful author and she says it simply: “It is brave. It is rare. It is love ... and it is beautiful.” And we couldn't agree more.

Chris & Samantha {Tiscornia Park Beach | St. Joseph, Michigan}

Love finds you when you least expect it. Most often, when you're not even looking.

Chris was a nurse. Samantha was completing her radiography clinicals. They first met at LaPorte Hospital and it was one of those instant connections. They became friends first, but knew right away there was something more. Now, they're planning their big day in September!

When we first met Chris and Sam last year we knew they were the type of couple that you could become fast friends with. Not only are they easygoing and heartfelt, they're kind and carefree. Not to mention, smitten with each other!

We ventured to Tiscornia Park Beach in St. Joseph, Michigan a few weeks ago to photograph their engagement session. And just like our first time meeting, we saw the connection these two had. They're one of those couples that when you meet them, you can immediately tell they're in love. Fully and completely. It's a beautiful thing to find true love. To see true love. It's the kind of love that finds you that you should hold onto - and these two have certainly found that in each other.

Beach Day Fun {Tiscornia Beach | St. Joseph, MI}

Loved hanging with these sweet cousins at a little beach in St. Joseph, Michigan a few weekends ago! While it was a little dreary, they made the most of it - and we had a lot of fun to! 

Being with children is 'chicken soup' for the soul. They remind us that being a kid again isn't impossible - and that there is a whole lot of goodness left in this world. <3
