Engagement Archives - Page 2 of 5 - Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer

Of all the places we have photographed, Chicago is easily one of our favorites. We jump at any opportunity we have to spend a weekend there shooting. There are just so many beautiful buildings, gorgeous parks, old trees with low branches, and flower-filled gardens. It fills our photographer’s hearts with joy! We have been looking […]

Where do we start? There is so much we love about Krystal and Nolan’s engagement pictures at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. First off, the obvious which is how incredibly good looking these two are. We could have taken them to a deserted inner-city alley and they would have STILL made the setting look good. […]

Even a stormy afternoon can be beautiful for a Michigan lakeside engagement shoot at the beaches in Holland. The moody clouds and wavy lakeshore provided the perfect blue-grey backdrop to contrast the bright joy and love that Alexis and Jacob have for each other. We had been watching the weather all day with our fingers […]

We love our job. As Michigan wedding photographers, not only we do we get to create beautiful works of art but we get to meet with so many amazing couples. Couples that we might not otherwise have the opportunity to meet. Before we became wedding photographers, we used to think that we were kind of […]

It’s always exciting to scout new locations for engagement sessions and Hemlock Crossing in West Olive did not disappoint. It was full of wildflowers and numerous overlooks offer scenic views of the river, wetlands, natural springs, and woods. There are so many good spots at Hemlock Crossing, the trouble was picking our favorite place to […]

We love to photograph engagement sessions downtown Grand Rapids. The architecture is really beautiful and there are so many great spots in close proximity to each other.

We always coach our couples on picking an engagement session location that fits their personalities best. Sometimes it’s a little tricky to figure out the best location, but with a little questioning, we always find the ideal spot for our couples. However, when we first met Kristin, she already knew what she wanted! She told […]

We have this ongoing joke that there is always a little girl with short blonde hair in a bright pink shirt following us around to all of our shoots. She was there in Chicago, running around the background Cloud Gate while we are photographing Emily and Daniel’s engagement session. She was in Nashville, running up […]

One reason why we love to shoot Michigan Lakeshore engagement sessions is because the sun sets over the lake. Imagine if we lived in Wisconsin on the other side of the lake? Yes, the view would be beautiful in the morning but we would have to shoot sunrise engagement sessions to get the same effect. […]

It has been a long time since we shot a Millennium Park engagement session! But it’s one of our favorite spots in Grand Rapids, Michigan because there is such a variety of places to shoot. There are plenty of wooded areas for the dreamy, romantic forest look. There is a beautiful pavilion with white stone […]
