Carrie & Joel Engagement {Ypsilanti, MI}

It’s the end of an era. My last remaining unmarried sister is getting married!

The day before she graduated, my youngest sister Carrie and her fiancé Joel showed me around EMU’s campus. They spent the shoot recounting some of the formative moments of their relationship and we visited some important locations. Joel has been going to school in Florida for the past few years, so it’s rare that he and Carrie are physically together. It’s even more rare when I’m around them as a couple, so I was very glad to be able to see them interact and, what is the word, “canoodle”.

They’re getting married in a few months, and I’ll be blubbering behind the camera as I see my wonderful sister marry her love.
Carrie, I’m excited to see this next chapter in your life unfold.
Joel, I look forward to the rest of our lives now lived as brothers.

Enjoy these highlights.

Mike & Caroline are Engaged! {Kalamazoo, MI}
Mike and Caroline were at college with me at UofM but I didn't meet Mike until this engagement shoot. They're both musicians and I hung with some of that crowd but our paths never crossed. Pity. He's great. These two meet in my town of KZoo for their shoot and I'm really happy with what we did together. They were sports for shooting in the cold without their coats at times. Even with their coats it was cold! But anyway, peep these shots and let me know what you think. Comment on facebook. Check out their full album here. This will be my last post before Christmas so MERRY CHRISTMAS! We'll start with one of my favorites! ...
Shane & Michelle Engagement {Kalamazoo, MI}
Shane and Michelle were kind enough to take a trip out to Kalamazoo to see me. Sure I know the locations better around this neck of the woods but I'm thankful that it allowed me to be around Heidi for the impending birth of our son. You all should know how valuable networking is. My specific case in point is that Heidi's coworker graciously let us use her property and secret trails into Al Sabo Preserve. The results speak for themselves. Shane and Michelle will be wed next month on the East side of the state and I look forward to picking up the nerd-jokes and meme references then.

Chad & Jenna Engagement {Kalamazoo, MI}
Jenna was Heidi's midwife for the birth of our son Elias. The knowledge and calm she brought into the delivery room was fantastic. For those reasons (and a couple others) she will always have a special place in our family's heart. As you can imagine, I'm really excited to be able to bring a similar amount of calm and knowledge to documenting Jenna and Chad's engagement and wedding. Chad and Jenna have a very fun-loving relationship and it was a pleasure to spend time with them both under more normal circumstances as we braved the cold together. With that background, let us begin this display of some of my favorite images from a very snowy ...
