Clint and Jenna wed this past weekend at the beautiful Morris Estate Wedding Chapel in Niles, Michigan. The couple, their wedding party, and their families were so much fun to work with! I think my favorite part of the day was having Jenna’s dad hold up traffic for us so we could pose the wedding party in the middle of the street on the campus of Notre Dame. Jenna and Clint, I am so happy we were able to capture all of the photos on your wish list and more! I hope you enjoy these preview photos of your wedding day. May you have a lifetime of happy memories together! Once again, thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful wedding day. Love and Blessings!
I am convinced that anything photography related definitely needs to take place in the Fall. The colors of the season provided a perfect backdrop for Faisah and Brian’s South Bend engagement photo session. It also helps that Faisah and Brian are super adorable together. The couple lives in Michigan but opted to travel to South Bend for their engagement photos. We started the session on the beautiful grounds of the historic Oliver mansion. I love this location because it is blocks away from my studio and is simply a gorgeous area. For a sample of wedding day photos taken at this same location click here.
The second location was also within walking distance from the studio. It might sound different but I love, love, love, shooting in alley’s and abandoned warehouses. Unconventional photo locations, even on the wedding day, can create awesome photos and also makes the wedding day more memorable.
Thank you Faisah and Brian for traveling to South Bend for your engagement photos. I look forward to shooting your wedding in September 2016.
An engagement photography session is so much fun because it gives me a chance to work with my couples before their big day. During an engagement photography session, couples get the experience of being professionally photographed before their wedding day. When taking engagement photos my goal is to capture the natural interactions between the couple. For the most part I give minimal direction because I love when couples laugh and smile naturally without force. That’s why it was so cute to photograph Sara and Ricky for their engagement photography session.
Sara and Ricky were great to work with. I could tell that they were both a little bit nervous at the beginning of the shoot. Ricky was actually full of giggles when we first started. The giggles were good because it allowed both of them to naturally smile and laugh without direction. By the end of the session both Sara and Ricky were relaxed and ended up having a lot of fun with the shoot.
I shot Sara and Ricky’s engagement photography session at the River Walk located in Mishawaka. We ended the session in the streets of the city’s downtown area. I loved the couples outfit choices and how the buildings in the street scene coordinated perfectly. Thank you Sara and Ricky for a great session! You guys did an awesome job and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding in April 2015. Here are a few of my favorite’s from this session. Enjoy!
