Danielle + Cory: Michigan State University Campus Engagement Photos

It’s always fun to watch MSU’s campus transform across the seasons (especially now that I’m out of college, and I no longer have to trudge a mile across campus in the snow for an 8:00 AM ISS class). I have to admit that I was originally a little nervous about scheduling Danielle and Cory’s engagement session in November—I didn’t know if we’d have any color left, and I imagined us all shivering away as we walked together around campus. But the weather stayed mild for us, and Danielle was amazing at pretending that it was about 30 degrees warmer than it actually was in her sleeveless purple dress (many props to you, Danielle).

Stephanie + Kris: Lincoln Brick Park Engagement Session

Lincoln Brick Park in Grand Ledge is my new location crush. It took us a few tries to make this mini session happen—we showed up to unexpected rain on our first try, but it was worth the wait for a nicer day, and I’m so glad that Stephanie and Kris were with me on waiting it out and coming back.

I headed back there a few weeks later for a snowy family session, and I can’t wait to share what a winter wonderland this place becomes! It’s basically a photographer’s dream all around.

Courtney+Mike: Old Town Lansing Engagement Photos

I love Old Town. I’m there every Friday morning dancing like a crazy person at music lessons with my daughter, Zelda (my feet have the rythm of the popcorn, pop-popcorn, pop-popcorn…), and I love the whole vibe of the area. As a photographer, I love that it’s so insanely diverse—from the colorful urban feel to the peaceful docks on the river, you can definitely hit up a ton of locations in a short amount of time.

Now let’s talk about Courtney and Mike for a minute. I met Courtney in elementary school, but we lost touch when she moved away. Then as freshmen in college, we both made the Michigan State cheerleading team and lived in the same dorm complex (yay, Brody!), and we bonded over the shared experience of finding our way as freshly minted “adults.” After a few moves on my part, we lost touch again for a bit, but I was so excited to hear from her after Mike proposed. I loved hopping around Old Town with these two—they’re full of laughs and so much fun. I’m definitely pumped for the wedding in September.

Phil+Maggie: A Game Day Proposal Under Beaumont Tower

Phil proposed to Maggie under Beaumont Tower the morning of the Michigan State vs. Michigan game in October. I was a bit giddy and nervous as I waited and watched for them from a bench near the tower. I kept my camera in my bag at the ready—I didn’t want to be too obvious when Maggie walked by. When the moment came, they walked right by me and over to the circle in the shadow of the tower, where Phil offered a kiss in the tradition of the tower (it’s said that a Spartan is destined to marry his/her sweetheart if they kiss under the shadow of the Beaumont Tower). She said yes (yay!), and I headed over to introduce myself, congratulate them and take a few photos on campus before they headed out to enjoy some tailgating. Well done, Phil. Very well done.
