Spenser & Westbrook

It may have taken several tries to have a day where we weren't being rained out, but I'm pretty sure this session was worth the wait.  We had the best Michigan summer night to cruise around Harsen's Island with Spenser and Westbrook.  Westbrook's family has a cottage on the island, and it's their happy place where they feel like they can relax and enjoy their time together.  And their pup, Kramer, came along so it was pretty much the perfect day.  I'm pretty sure I immediately encouraged them to start their family so I can come back and shoot with them there.  (It's cool, I know how much couples love family planning advice at their engagement sessions. Obviously, I've done this before.)

Spencer & Chelsea

We loved with a love that was more than love.

I loved that Chelsea and Spencer chose to have their session at MSU where they met.  It was so fun being on campus and probably one of the most perfect fall days we could have asked for after a week of terrible forecasts!  Another one of my 2016 couples and I couldn't be more excited that we get to hang out and celebrate with them! 

Brad & Dana

For a really long time that’s all I had. Little moments with a girl who saw me as a friend. And a lot of people told me I was crazy to wait this long for a date with a girl who I worked with, but I think, even then I knew, I was waiting for my wife.

You know, any relationship that would come close to mimicking Jim & Pam's obviously won me over within seconds.  Brad was a fireman that worked at the same firehouse that Dana worked out.  She had no clue he was interested in her for over a year, even when everyone else knew.  After finally getting the courage to really ask her out, he got right on asking her to marry him... every date the had. It's so funny how some things that seem to make so much sense can take so long to come together.  They were one of those couples who had the most easy going relationship that just worked, yet their love for each other was so evident. 

Brad & Dana, I'm so excited for your wedding this fall!
