Townsend Park Wedding

Townsend Park, Cannonsburg MI

Congratulations Anil and Christina! This was such a beautiful, intimate celebration of this couple’s story. They met on OKCupid, when Anil sent her a very nerdy message detailed with facts on dead languages. Their first date was four years ago at MadCap, in downtown Grand Rapids. Anil proposed last summer during a camping trip to Yellowstone, on a gorgeous hike overlooking the canyon.

These two are so laid-back, full of love and laughter. And there was lots of laughter on the big day.

Thank you so much for choosing me to document your story. Here is a little preview:

Townsend Park Engaged- Jessica and Eric

GRAND RAPIDS, MI
TOWNSEND PARK, MI

Congratulations Jessica and Eric! These two were troopers, with a location switch as we were all driving! Michigan- the weather isn't the only roller coaster we deal with here. They were so great about it and just rolled with the punches. That's a good quality in a couple. 

They met at work, starting out as friends, which lead into more... and have been together for four years. They were on a backpacking trip for the first time and it was storming. The next morning, the sun was shining and they walked down to the beach, where Eric proposed. It was very meaningful, coming out of the storm into the sunlight... 

The woods were really important to them in this shoot (probably because they are the bad-ass backpacking kind), so I'm glad we were able to get all of these photo opportunities at this park. 

The big day is September 15, so stay tuned! These guys are going to be so fun!

Fall Engagement Session-ASHLEY AND HAL

Townsend Park, Rockford MI

Congratulations to Ashley and Hal on their engagement! 

These two have known each other since 8th grade. Hal had told her he loved her way back in the day, and she never knew. They definitely have a story that proves love always wins in the end. Lots of moving, Ashley dated Hal's brother at some point... But, everything that is meant to be will be and they found each other again.

He proposed on her birthday, by kneeling down on one knee, and she almost tripped over him. I love this couple.

I'm so very excited to document their story. I wish them well on the many adventures (and little bundles of joy!) heading their way, to add to their other bundles of joy, growing their beautiful family!
Stay tuned in July for the wedding!
