Surprise proposal on New Buffalo beach :: Gina & Eric

Romantic surprise proposal on the beach in New Buffalo, Michigan

When Eric first contacted me about capturing his surprise proposal, I was all excited about the project and happy for the couple. I had to admire the effort Eric put into planning and wanted very much for his plan to work out as he envisioned.

I was also little nervous, because we were to shoot on the beach during the sunset and when shooting outdoors, we never know for sure what the weather has in store for us. 
Sure enough, the day turned out to be cloudy, very windy with rain showers before the sunset. I was not very happy, but I thought to myself...it is not about the weather after all, it is about the love.

Because this was a surprise proposal, even the weather decided to play the part and surprise us with the most spectacular sunset one can wish for. It was windy and Gina had to hold onto her hat, but it was all pretty and what is the most important...she said YES.

Taryn & Dan...the very special engagement

Engagement photos in St Joseph, MI

Every engagement is a joyful and special moment in the life of a family and for the photographer involved it is always a privilege to be trusted to capture the tender love the young people feel for each other.

Some engagements are just more special than others, like this one was for me. I, as a photographer but also a mother had the honor to photograph the engagement of my own son, Dan. 

When Dan was little, he was frequently the subject of my photos and he, as little children usually are, did not mind a bit. We have many adorable photos and nice memories of him growing up because of this. But you know how it is, children become teenagers and the photos taken by their parents are less frequent.

What a joy it is to be trusted again to capture the love and happiness of your child.

Marina Grand Resort wedding :: Alisha & Scott

Congratulations to Alisha & Scott who tied the knot 
at Marina Grand Resort in New Buffalo, Michigan

Alisha and Scott are an adorable couple, very much in love and their first look was quite emotional. 

They had their hearts set on a beach wedding ceremony and that's where the first look photos were suppose to take place as well. The weather intervened and the plans had to be changed. Everything moved indoors, to Marina Grand, where the reception was to follow.

Alisha and Scott did not let the rain ruin their special day and we got many lovely photos. For a brief moment, before the storm arrived, we were able to go outside for few photos.

I am honored when couples trust me and they feel free to express their emotions in a private moment when only I and the camera are there to capture it. 

I encourage each couple to have the first look before the ceremony, because this moment is a special one and you are not able to recreate the feeling afterwards.
