{chelsea&benjamin} engaged! – 4.17.15 – grand rapids engagement photographer

Last post for the week!! I cannot stop thinking about how much these past few shoots were and I’m so excited to post these last set of sneak images for the week. Chelsea and Ben (oh and Rudy their ((if I remember right)) 10+ yr old pup!) were SO much fun to walk around and photograph. Rudy was seriously one of the best dogs I’ve ever gotten the pleasure to photograph, as he was such a good sitter and * usually * looked at the camera without any help! It almost felt like it was a Rudy shoot for the first half until we all realized …. oh right we’re not doing this for you little dog! Chelsea and Ben were just fantastic and just so relaxed it made the session feel like it was over so quickly (in reality I think we talked so much it extended to almost three hours… whoops!). We started out at the blue pedestrian bridge (their ceremony space this July – Uhhhhh AMAZING) and we walked almost all the way back around and ended in the space below 131 with some dreamy golden hour light. I am so excited to shoot their wedding this July and you’ll soon see why in these images! (also, be on the lookout for them in GIF form doing the wave… because it’s going to be totally awesome)

{maureen&matt} engaged! – 4.15.16 – grand rapids engagement photographer

Another gorgeous Grand Rapids session for you today! Paul and I had such a fantastic time with this couple last Friday! The weather was perfect, so we set out downtown G.R. for some portraits around some of my favorite haunts. Maureen and Matt were so amazing and fun about hearing ideas for some fun shots. Maureen even had a few adorable shot ideas of her own! We ended the gorgeous evening with a few more shots of the sun going down on the Pearl St. bridge (did I mention the light was absolutely beautiful? Because oh yeah, it was.) We had such a fantastic time, and we can’t wait for the wedding in June! Ahhh!
